As you can see, the name was misspelled by the transcriber as Liem and the original records shows "Linn"... So I notified to change it to Lynn.

I am trying to connect Nicholas Lynn(1805-1866) to Nicholas Lind(1749-1823).
The Lind's seemed to live around *Taneytown* in what then was Frederick Co.(now Carroll), Md. The name started as Lynn(1790), changed to Linn by 1820, and ended up as Lind on the tombstone. I am looking for info also about a Keefer,Kieffer,Cooper connection.

Hello cousin,

As it turns out, Nicholas Lind (1749-1823) was the father of my Margaret (1791-1868). I found out through another researcher that Nicholas did have a son Nicholas also, but I don't know the birthdate. It's very probable it's the same Nicholas you spoke about who was born 1805, since that's not too far off from 1791.

Here's a quote from Adams Co. PA newspaper abstracts, if you're interested: Jan 15, 1812 "On 29th, Dr. John Henry Begen of Petersburg [married] to Margaret Lind, daughter of Nicholas Lind of Frederick county, MD"

I look forward to hearing from you,

At the Reformed Church, Taneytown, I found an Elizabeth Linn D.1821 age 71. Nicholas's Wife? also Abigal Lind D. June 25, 1819 age 29. She could have been married to a Jacob Lynn who is found in the census. Her tombstone has an engraving stating her son Jacob Lind of Stark Co., Ohio repaired the stone in the 1880's.

I have this on one of the Abigails you mentioned: "Among the persons buried in the German Reformed Cemetery [Taneytown, Carroll Co MD] are the following:.... A. Bigal [sic] Lind, died June 23, 1823, aged 29. Nicholas Lind, died Feb 21, 1823, aged 73 years, 3 months, 4 days..." This comes from "History of Western Maryland Including Biographical Sketches" 1968, Vol 2, a copy of which is on Which Abigail's tombstone was repaired in 1880, the younger one?

Some researchers have Nicholas's wife as Catherine Ohler and others as Ana Mary Noll. I haven't been researching this line long enough to take a side; I need much more evidence.

You brought up Stark Co., Ohio... other researchers have also stated that many Lind children moved to Northeastern Ohio, especially Canton and Plain Tp., Stark Co., Ohio. If only I had known that a few years ago... I lived most of my life in Stark Co., and research would have been very easy! Now I live over two hours away, and I don't get up that way much anymore. Nicholas Lind's grandchildren through his daughter Margaret (my line) also stopped in Stark County long enough to find spouses, then moved a few counties westward, to Crawford.

Hello. I descend from Elizabeth Lind born 10 Jul 1793 to Nicholas (1749-1823). Elizabeth died 1 Mar 1875 in Stark Co., OH. She was married 20 Mar 1812 to John Correll (5 Jan 1788 Millerstown, Liberty Twp, Adams Co PA - 15 Apr 1859 Plain Twp, Stark Co., OH). John and Elizabeth moved to Adams Co in 1813 and arrived Stark Co in 1834 settling 4 miles north of Canton. They had 12 children: Jacob, Samuel (married Lucetta DePuy), John, Catharine, Fanny, Anna E Maria, Analiza or Ann Eliza, Sarah Jane, Nancy L, Jeremiah, Margaret and Josiah L. I have birthdates and marriages for these 12 children. Also, I have pictures of Samuel Correll and his wife Lucetta DePuy.

Here is information I have received from a cousin. I cannot vouch for the accuracy:
"The Family of Michael Funderlind"
The discussion below revolves around the possible emigrant ancestor Michael Von der Lindt. It is suspected but not proven that Micheal was the grandfather of Mary Lind who married John Fair. We solicited you comments and suggestions for further research.
Michael Funderlind was probably born in Germany around 1743 and died in Carroll County, Maryland about 1827. He was probably born as Michael Von der Lindt. Michael was a land owner in Southern Pennsylvania and Northern Maryland.
We believe Michael's father was Johannes Von der Lindt who arrived in America aboard the ship "Edinburgh" on July 15, 1749. (If so, Michael would have come with him.) We have no direct proof that Johannes was his father; however, those researching Michael's family line have been moving toward that conclusion.
Michael definitely had one brother, Nicholas (b. November 17, 1749) who was identified through real estate transactions. If Michael's father was Johannes, he had the following other siblings: Johannes, b. about 1741; Jacob, b. 1748; Catherine, b. 1751; Susanna Margaretha, b. April 12, 1755; and, Henry, b. March 20, 1757.
Family members, census takers, county recorders, and other bureaucrats have all contributed to the transformation of the name "Von der Lindt" into the forms used for, and by, Von der Lindt descendants: Von der Lind, Vanderlin, Vanderlynn, Funderlind, Funderlinn, Funderlen, F. Linn, F. Lind, Lind, Linn, Lynn, Flynn. Most descendants today appear as Lind, Linn, or Lynn.
We believe Michael had fifteen children with two wives: Barbara and Elizabeth. We believe Barbara's last name was Eckes. The mix of children to mother's is not definite. Michael's family bible only lists the first eleven children, five were recorded using only their first names in German and six were recorded with the surname "Linn" in English. Early researchers interpreted the change in use of language to indicate how the children of Barbara and Elizabeth were divided. We now believe, based on property transactions, that all eleven recorded in the bible were the children of Michael's first wife, Barbara. There was probably a subsequent family bible, long lost.
Michael's children as follows:
With Barbara Eckes:
1. Catharine, b. December 21, 1769, d. April 1865. She appears as Catherine Lynn after she married Zadok Nutter. She and Zadok moved into the Shenandoah Valley northwest of Roanoke and settled. Their descendants were still there around 1910. Zadok appears as "Sodock" in Michael's will.
2. Emma Maria, b. August 29, 1772, d. before 1824. Emma or Lana is not mentioned in her father's will of 1824, so was probably dead by that time.
3. Michael, b. November 11, 1774, d. before 1790. Michael probably died young as a later son in the family was named Michael.
4. Elizabeth, b. January 13, 1776, probably in Frederick County, Maryland, d. between 1827 and 1841. She appears as Elizabeth Lind when she married Jacob Deitrick about 1792. She and Jacob moved into the Shenandoah Valley northeast of Roanoke and settled. Deitrick appears as "Tedor" in Michael's will.
5. Barbara, b. March 8, 1779, probably in Frederick County, Maryland. According to Michael's will, she married Jacob Eckes. No further information.
6. Mary, b. October 6, 1871, in Frederick County, Maryland, d. March 22, 1866, in Manchester, Carroll County, Maryland. She appears as Mary Lind when she marries John Fair.
7. John, b. March 4, 1783, d. 1870. He appears as John Lind when he marries Elizabeth Hess. We believe that John and Elizabeth relocated to Stark County, Ohio and settled. One child, Catharine, was married there.
8. Magdelina, b. September 13, 1786, d. before 1824. Magdelina is not mentioned in her father's will of 1824, so was probably dead by that time.

JACOB >>>>*****9. Jacob, b. December 25, 1789, in Maryland, d. January 29, 1871, in Adams County, Pennsylvania. Jacob appears as Jacob Funderlinn, or Jacob F. Linn in Adams County land records. He married Catherine.******

10. Michael, b. January 17, 1790. No further information
11. Margaret, b. October 8, 1792, d. December 13, 1849. According to Michael's will she married William Pepple. No further information.
With Elizabeth:
12. Rebecca, b. about 1809. According to Michael's will, she married Frederick Older (probably Ohler). No further information.
13. Solomon, b. before 1800. Wife's first name was Nancy.
14. Samuel, b.Feb 5, 1797. Married Barbara Bachman, his mother's niece.
15. Hannah, b. Apr 5, 1800. According to Michael's will, she married Ulrick Smith. No further information.
Michael's brother, Nicholas married Mary Null and remained in the area around Taneytown in Carroll County, Maryland. They had eleven children. We believe that many of the children with spouses relocated into the Northeast counties of Ohio (Stark, Mahoning, Columbiana). Just starting to work on that.

John married Mary LIND of neighboring York County, PA circa 1797. (Marriage data for John and Mary, dates of birth and death for John and Mary from Hoffacker Family Papers;, by Geo., W. and Wm F. Hoffacker, page 118.
