My ZEIGLER, ZUMBRUN and KINSEY families were founding families of the Blue River Church of the Brethren originally the Blue River German Baptist Church formed in 1852 when the founding families moved from Montgomery County, Ohio. Because of the large families and inter marriage within the church. Whenever I meet someone from Whitley County it seems I am somehow related to half the families living in or from the county.
My second great-grandparents Saba KINSEY 1815 Montgomery County, Ohio to 1888 Whitley County, Indiana and Joseph ZEIGLER 1813 Cumberland County, Pennsylvania to Montgomery County, Ohio to 1894 Whitley County, Indiana.
Saba and Judah's parents were Christian KINSIE 1788 Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Botetourt County, Virginia to Montgomery County, Ohio to 1859 Whitley County, Indiana and Hannah HECKMAN 1777 Botetourt County, Virginia to Montgomery County, Ohio to 1852 Whitley County, Indiana. Christian was a Church of the Brethren Deacon and along with my ZEIGLER, ZUMBRUN, and other families from Montgomery County, Ohio formed the Blue River German Baptist now Church of the Brethren Church in Whitley County, Indiana.
Jonas' parents Joseph ZEIGLER 1813-1894 Cumberland County, Pennsylvania to Montgomery County, Ohio to Whitley County, Indiana and Saba KINSEY 1815-1888 Montgomery County, Ohio to Whitley County, Indiana. Joseph was a Church of the Brethren Deacon and minister who along with my KINSEY, ZUMBRUN, and other families from Montgomery County, Ohio formed the Blue River German Baptist now Church of the Brethren Church in Whitley County, Indiana.
