Leas Family Genealogy Forum
I have just started researching the Fidler family. My husband is a descendant of the Reverend Daniel Fidler who married your family members. Through some research I have found that the Fidler family had its beginnings in Adams County, PA. Rev. Daniel was born in 1771 and died in 1842. His tombstone can be found in Pemberton, New Jersey at the Pemberton United Methodist Church. The Restone circuit went through Pennsylvania and New Jersey. His obituary seems to have appeared in the NJ Mirror on 8 Sep 1842. After his death, the family moved to Philadelphia, PA I have not tried to secure a print of this yet. I hope this is helpful. Your family may have moved to Ohio with a Methodist group of people from PA or NJ. Some of the circuit riders went out to Ohio often to spread the word. In 1790,Reverend Daniel Fidler was stationed in Ohio.
Sincerely, Michelle Profico
