I am not sure where you are getting conflicting information but the internet seems to be full of a lot of bad genealogy lately so always try to find the source of the information you find. Most of the following information has been well known and was published by Frieda Wilson in her book, FUNKHOUSER, A Swiss American Genealogy (1978). The information in Frieda's book on the connection of the Funkhousers to Switzerland has been shown to be inaccurate but her information on the early Funkhousers in Virginia is accurate. Margaret Funkhouser, who married Freshour, was the daughter of Christian Funkhouser and Margaret Wolf(e) of Stony Creek, Shenandoah County, VA. Christian was son of Jacob Funkhouser Sr and wife, Verena, who settled on Tumbling Run in what is now northern Shenandoah County, VA by 1737. Jacob's parentage is unknown. Christian married Barbara Bowman Six after Margaret died and he died in 1793- he did not leave a will. Margaret Wolf(e)was daughter of Jacob Wolf and Anna Catherina (Schmidt).Margaret died about 1773, but is named in her father's will and named as wife of Christian Funkhouser, dec.- Jacob Wolf wrote his will, 20 Apr. 1795- The will was proven 10 Dec. 1799 (Shenandoah Co. VA will book E, p.325. Wolf is spelled as Woolf, Wolfe, Wolff and Wolf but they are all the same man.
