Married Jacob Ober/Over about 1829. Known as both Hannah Stevens and Hannah Stuckey - is it possible she had a brief marriage to a Stuckey first? There was a Joseph Stuckey, born 1803 in Bedford Co., PA, who died in 1825 in an accident when a tree fell on him - this would be possible if Hannah married him at age 16 and he died soon after. She then would have married Jacob Ober in 1829 as Hannah Stuckey. She named first son Cyrus Stevens Ober.

Name: Jacob Ober

Birth: 20 Feb 1801
Death: 9 Sep 1855 in Sollenberger / Ober Cem., South Wodbury Twp., Bedford Co., Pa
The 1850 Census listed Jacob Ober, 50, farmer; Hannah Ober, 42; Cyrus Ober, 10; Christopher Ober, 16; Obadiah Ober, 14; Daniel Ober, 10; Alfred Ober, 7; Caroline Ober 18; Delilah Ober, 13; Hannah Ober, 5; Mary Susan Ober, 3 (1850 Pennsylvania Census, Bedford County, South Woodbury Township, p. 220:142/143).

I have found some records such as the cemetery record that list him as ÒJohn OverÓ but since his brother is John Over I will refer to him by his birth name Jacob. His obituary also lists his name as Jacob Ober.

Jacob Ober died at the age of 54 years, 6 months, and 19 days.

The Bedford Inquirer and the Bedford Chronicles (Sept. 21, 1855) lists a different age than the cemetery records for Jacob Ober at the time of his death. The paper lists 51 years, 6 months, and 19 days while the cemetery records lists 54 years, 6 months, and 19 days. The paper gives no date for the death of Jacob Ober, but does state that he lived in South Woodbury Township, Bedford County and his wife died in August 1851. Bedford Archives, Volume 6, p. 38 in possession of the Kittochtinny Historical Society.

Jacob Ober (grantor) sold 8 acres and 28 perches for $280 on Apr. 11, 1811 (recorded on May 31, 1830) to Henry Fluck. Witnesses: William Davis. Deed Book P, p. 701. Bedford County, Pennsylvania.

The tract was divided into two parcels: 113 acres and 93 acres. Bedford County, Pennyslvania. Orphan Court Docket, Volume 9, p. 313.

John Ober and Hannah Stevens were of the German Baptist faith. They lived in Salemville and owned 215 acres and 65 perches on Beaver Run.

Dear Kari Northup:

You certainly made substantial additions to your website in this department. Wow!! It is so extremely impressive. After spending a number of hours, I am truly amazed at the information amassed and realize that you are a professional knowing how to use the resources at hand. Not sure I can be of any additonal help. However, following are observations. Then, I am again mailing further details and several photocopies of info gotten at Hollidaysburg and Bedford.

Mary Ann, b. ca. 1795: If the 1795 DOB is correct, Nicholas would have been only 18 years old; married at 17 with no more children recorded until 1801. Might Mary Ann have been a child born before Nicholas married Mary Unknown? I cannot determine the exact year of their marriage, nor the exact year prior to 1800 that Nicholas and Peter relocated to Huntingdon County.

The 1810 Census: Surely a mess!! I believe one must assume that children were not always "living at home" as we now understand it. It was common for relatives to keep children when there was a need. Hence, several at Peter's home; but even that does not account for all six. However, a transcribed record (which may be wrong) that I have, does show one female in the 10-16 column which would account for 15-year-old Mary Ann.

Peter, b. ca. 1804: (The notes for this Peter would not come up on my computer.) I have no information as to when or where Peter died. Reportedly, in the Brush Valley Lutheran Cemetery, there is a stone for a Margaret, wife of Peter Steffe; died February 24, 1866. Age: 68 yrs., 2 mos., 20 days. Will mail info.

Hannah: Probably, Hannah and Jacob Ober married in 1829 because Cyrus was born April 14, 1830 (not 1831: Derr, Ober, Over website is in error). The 1830 Census, Woodbury, Twp., Bedford County, PA, Page 154, shows a Jacob Ober with one male child under five (Cyrus). Also shows a male between 15 and 20 thought to be Jacob's brother, Joseph. This gets into the story of the Henry Ober family coming from Mifflin County into Morrisons Cove...................Error in 1850 Consus, South Woodbury Twp. Bedford County, PA, Pages 143/144: Cyrus, age 10 should be 20, as you corrected; the Daniel , age 10, should be David, age 10...................With much respect to Regina (And we Ober/Overs are much indebted to her), the family of Jacob Ober and Hannah was not of the German Baptist faith. They were Reformed. However, after Hannah and Jacob died, the families of all but two or three of their children became German Baptists. Will snail mail supporting info.

Hannah's name: Very confusing, and mysterious, is that Hannah was known generally as Hannah Stuckey and only rarely as Hannah Stevens. Might she have been raised by a Stuckey family, and thus naturally fell into the use of the Stuckey surname? Even Linda Cochran (Families & Blair Bedford. . . ) and Linda Wilkes (My Tree) refer to her as Hannah Stuckey.

Hope you have had response from Dale steffey. Best of luck as you continue your searches. Many thanks for the details to "my branch". Brown envelop is on its way.
