Subject: Trip to Blair County and afterwards

Dear Kari,
I have been working on the Leamer connected families ever since Sunday, since I came down with a bad cold and don't have much energy for anything except sitting at the computer! We got back from our trip to Blair County on Thursday afternoon, and I had my local genealogical society meeting that night, spent Friday at the library working on Ancestry, Saturday at our local genealogical society all day conference, and then got the cold on Sunday.

I have been using your information, and figuring out families from what people have posted on Rootsweb World Connect, plus what I found in Ancestry, and have come to some conclusions that may or may not be correct.

I found Margaret Leamer and Oliver Westover in Van Buren County, Iowa in the 1870 and 1880 census in Iowa, plus a state census on Ancestry. In 1870 they are right next to Jacob Gast and his two youngest kids, Jacob, 26 and J.D.
(Joseph) 24. I copied some, but I don't seem to have copied the state one, which I think was 1885, and Margaret (Margaretta) was living with one of her children married to Askew. I am sure you can find it. In these records, Oliver is only one or two years older than she is. So I searched as much as I could find on Rootsweb for another Oliver in the family who would be born about 1912-1813. So far I could not find any, except one who was born in Kentucky, came into Crawford Co., PA and went on to end up in Missouri married to someone else, so not our guy.

If you can buy the idea of a 60 plus years old Oliver marrying Mary Confer ---he would have been 63 in 1838 and she would have been 45 ---and fathering a child (John)then I think this is probably what happened. I think they were friends all along, and probably they married for companionship. Much easier for me to comprehend than if his son Oliver married Mary ---he would have been
31 in 1838 when she was 45----I guess this could have happened, but then there is no Oliver left over for our Margaret to marry! What I don't understand is the 1850 census in which his age is given as 60, Mary 53 and John Westover, 18. Of course, this son John could be from his first marriage, I guess. If she did marry Oliver II he would have been 75 in 1850. I wrote to someone who lives in Altoona and has done a lot with sorting the Westovers, and said "Will the real Oliver Westover please stand up?" This is extremely confusing.

However, in probably the 1880 census, he stated that his father was from Vermont, and there were one or two of the Westovers who went to Vermont. This morning I tried Vermont and found Amos, father of Abijah, but he did not have any children named Oliver. It could be that an Oliver will show up, but I think it is more likely that Mary Confer and Margaret Leamer each married an Oliver who was handy and residing in Huntingdon County!!NOTE I may have to take this all back. I just was reviewing an entry in an Orphan's Court book we were looking at at the BCGS library. Unfortunately we did not go to the Court house where we could have seen the older books. They happened to have one upstairs at the BCGS which was 1854 to 1858. In it we found documents which were part of the continuing struggle over Henry's estate. There was one which contained Henry's entire will, reviewing what he said, and it was after Elizabeth and Daniel Dublin had died, a petition by their son Joseph. It all ended up in the property being sold to David Leamer and the money divided among the heirs. The property was in Antis Twp. and Henry purchased it after his will was drawn up and never included it. When the property was ordered sold in 1858, someone named John Brotherline petitioned Henry Leamer and Mary and Oliver Westover ---I think it turned out that Oliver and Mary told Henry he could keep their $160 share! The point being that if Mary's Oliver was still alive in 1857 he can't be the Oliver II who died in 1855!!!!!! Aagh!!!
