Mary Ann DeGroff & William Smetzer-Adams Co. PA & Williams Co. OH

  of 193

Ancestor Mary Ann DeGroff (1822-1883) was married to William Smetzer (1809-1892) in Gettysburg, Adams Co., PA in 1841. They soon moved to Ohio and finally settled in Bryan, Jefferson Twp., Williams Co., OH, where they both died. We think Mary Ann may be the daughter of Michael DeGroff (1801-1842) & Phillippine Riebenheim (b Germany) of Gettysburg, married in 1800, but no source found either in PA or OH or on the web.

Michael's brother is William DeGroff who married Margaret Myers and also lived and died in Williams Co.

Michael and William are sons of Moses DeGroff (1773-1842) of Conewego, PA and Mary ________. Would like info on her, too.

Hoping to find:
1. Proof of Mary Ann's parents as Michael/Phillippine
2. Information on Phillippine Riebenheim (Cavena, Philopena)
3. Mary, wife of Moses, last name
4. Connection to William DeGroff & Margaret Myers
