Philhower Family Genealogy Forum
Does anyone know where Jacob Philhower who died in Clermont Co. OH in July 1845 is buried? I know his wife Elizabeth Hart died in Hamilton Co. IN around 1860, but I don't know where she is buried either.
Their daughter Eathanne and husband Lewis Carter are buried in the Perkinsville Cemetery in Madison Co. IN under the names of Lewis McCarty and Effie A. McCarty. The family is listed in the 1860 Madison Co. Jackson Twp IN census under Carter. Their eldest daughter Sarilda married in 1860 under the name McCarty to Elisha Holloway.
Sarilda lived to be 93 yrs. old and was interviewed June 6, 1930 (age 92) by the Noblesville Daily Ledger. She said she was the eldest of 11 children of Effie Philhower and Lewis McCarty and that she was born March 25, 1838 in Clermont Co. OH. However I have that Effie and Lewis were married in 1841 in Clermont Co. OH
Very confusing! Sandra Holloway
