9. Ulrich CONRAD/COONROD Junior-[956] was born about 1745 in Berne Switzerland and died after February 15, 1814 in Harrison Town Ship, Pickaway County, Ohio. Another name for Ulrich was Woolrich CONRAD/COONROD.

General Notes: 1790 - James Dyer and John Poage, list of Tiltable of all male's over age of 16, contained the following Conrad's: Ulrich Senior and Junior Jacob Listed with Ulrich Jr. Adam and George. [All sons of Urlich Jr.]

After his father dies Urlich Jr continues to live in on the family property until 1806. He sell the homestead for $12,000 on September 1806 [see land records] Son George purchased 157 acres in Pickaway County on June 12, 1806. According to tax, census and will all of the family moved to Ohio. Son George is the only one that later moved his family out of Ohio to Illinois by 1820.

I should note that Urlich wife surname has been listed as Drestern, so far I have not found any records proving her last name. According to land records her first name was Elizabeth. In the "History of Pendleton County" Mr. Morton leaves her name "blank". The only written record is an LDS file on "Woolrich Coonrod" There are several errors in this file. I have also searched census records for the surname Drestern and have not found any family with that spelling. Until I find proof I will not use this surname.

The family history listed in "History of Pendleton County" Mr. Morton stated Urlich Sr left a will and only listed 3 children" Urlich, Barbara and Elizabeth, as previously stated Barbara has not been proven. It also listed several Conrad's as "Unproven" and indicated they may be the children of Hans, killed by Indians) After finding Urlich Jr's will all the children listed in the book " Jacob, George, Elizabeth, Adam, and John are know to be the children of Urlich Jr. One person listed I have not been able to connect John that married Barbara Wanstaff, married 1792 and he could very well be Hans son. 2

It should noted that Urlich wife surname has been listed as Drestern, and this is incorrect.  The only written record is an LDS file on "Woolrich Coonrod" There are several errors in this file.  I have documentation that her surname was Dresler.  This came from a birth/baptismal record on son Ulrich.  
Notice the spelling of the last name.  According to R D Earnest Associates, "Elisabeth's maiden name is Dresler not Drestern.  The "n" ending on her maiden names is simply a feminine ending and it should be dropped."  "...the scrivener did not crossed the "t", please check the "l" or "t" in Drester against the "t" in Conradt and the "l" in Elizabeth.  It appears to us that this scrivener crossed "t's" pretty distinctively." 

I have a translation of the certificate and information on the Pennsylvania Fraktur artist that produced the work.

Ulrich married Elizabeth DRESTERN -[957] [MRIN:247] before 1764 in Pendleton County, Virginia [now West Virginia]. Elizabeth was born about 1750 in Virginia and died before 1814 in Pickaway County, Ohio.

General Notes: I have not found any records on Elizabeth in Ohio. Assume she died prior to her husband as she is not mentioned in his will.
