In Reply to: Daniel Ditzler Died 1844 Allen Co., Ohio by Ann Landgrebe of 86

What info were you looking for? Cannot help with Bible record but a biography of Daniel's son Jacob was placed in the Allen County, ohio history:

Allen County History, Perry Twp., page 738

JACOB DITZLER, farmer, P. 0. Westminster, was born near Lancaster, in Fairfield County, Ohio, February 20, 1826; son of Daniel and Catherine (Ice) Ditzler, former a native of Greenbrier County, Va.., and latter of Pennsylvania, who came to Allen County in 1836, settling in Perry Township, on the farm now owned by W. W. Creps. Daniel Ditzler entered the land, which, with the assistance of his sons he cleared and improved, and here he died in 1844, in the forty-seventh year of his age; his widow died in 1874, at the age of eighty-four years. They reared a family of five children: Jacob, Samuel, Elizabeth (wife of Benjamin Rover), Frederick and Catherine (wife of W. H. Biddinger). Our subject was reared in Perry Township, this county, from ten years of age, and was educated in the common schools. At the age of seventeen he was apprenticed to Levi Saint, of Lima, Ohio, for three years, to learn the tanner's trade; serving his time and remaining with him for five years. After this he embarked in business with J. J. Mans, of Westminster, this county (where they carried on a tannery), for four years, and then sold his interest in the business. In 1852, he went to California, where he was engaged in mining for five years. In 1858, he returned to Perry Township, this county, and purchased the farm where he now resides, on which he has made all the improvements in buildings, etc. Mr. Ditzler has been three times married, first in 1859, to Angeline, daughter of Eli and Mary Stevenson, of Perry Township, this county, and his second marriage was in 1863, with Maria, daughter of Miles and Mary McElroy, of Perry Township, and by her he had one child: Daniel L. His third wife, to whom he was married in 1865, was Mrs. Maria Littlefield, widow of Daniel Littlefield, and daughter of Edward Corlin, of Richland County, Ohio. The issue of this union is two children: Thomas and Perry. Mr. and Mrs. Ditzler are members of the Universalist Church. He has served his township as justice of the peace one term and has held other minor offices. He is a F. & A. M.; in politics a Democrat.

Daniel is son of Jacob Ditzler (1773-1854) and his wife Elizabeth Starry (born 1775). I have Daniel in the 1830 Census in Fairfield County, Ohio, and the 1840 census in Allen County, Ohio. I have the father Jacob in Fairfield County, Ohio 1830 and 1840 censuses. He is number
AFN: 1LJW-T7D in the Ancestry File of the Latter Day Saints Church ("Mormons") and his father was in the Revolutionary War and some info comes from a descendant's DAR application.
Jacob Ditzler's (the one born 1773) parents are Jacob Ditzler (1744-1828) and his wife Elizabeth (1751-1822), maiden name unsure. Jacob Ditzler born 1744 left a will in his native county of Lancaster, Pennsylvania naming his children and his daughter's spouses. Jacob born 1744 is in the DAR Patriot Index.
Family stories say that when Jacob Ditzler of Fairfield County, Ohio, died in 1854, his brother, my 4th great-grandfather, David Ditzler (married Anna Maria Yohe), got some land which he then deeded to Daniel (son of Jacob) of Fairfield, out of love for his nephew and brother (Mr. and Mrs. Allen Dodds of Texas have copies of the original documents, I have lost mine)
