I am looking for information on Elizabeth Rebecca (Rebecka)Brubaker she married John Henry Switzer in Ashland County, Ohio in 1851. I believe they later settled in Iowa near Eddyville or Oskaloosa. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have hit a brick wall.
Here is part of the info I have:
John Henry Switzer Sr.
John H. Switzer was born August 21, 1829 in Bush Valley, Pennsylvania. John married Elizabeth Bluebaker, date unknown. She was born March 11, 1833 in Little York, Pennsylvania and died in Mahaska County, Iowa.
They started their married life living in Ashland County, Ohio, where six of their children were born. Sometime after 1861 they moved to Iowa where six more children were born. They settled on a farm. To make a living for twelve children was quite a chore. John Henry, being a building contractor, spent a great deal of his time away from home and the family.
With John being gone so much, most of the work of the farm fell on the shoulders of Elizabeth and the older children. Along with raising food to eat, they also had some milk cows, which they milked and sold to get money to buy the mere necessities that couldn’t be raised on the farm.
Children of John Henry and Elizabeth were:
