child 2 i. Christina2 Overmyer was born in East Buffalo Twp., Northumberland/Union Co., PA 1791. Tena died January 15, 1852 in OH. Her body was interred after January 15, 1852 in New Reading Cem., Reading Twp.,Perry Co.,OH., New Reading.(798) She married twice. She married Christian Anspach in Fairfield County, Ohio, August 23, 1808.(799) Christian was born in Berks Co.,PA. August 27, 1787. He was the son of Johann-Adam Anspach and Barbara Bogenrief or Barrav or Barrow. Christian died July 22, 1839 in Reading Township, Perry County, OH., at 51 years of age. March 08, 1865 is the date Juanita gives, but I have that date for Johannes. His tombstone says 1839. I still think the July 22, 1839 date is correct.

His body was interred after July 22, 1839 in New Reading Cem., Reading Twp.,Perry Co.,OH., New Reading.(800) He was baptized in Stouchsburg, Berks Co., PA, September 2, 1787. Religion: Lutheran.(801) (See Christian Anspach for the continuation of this line.) She married George Swinehart in OH, 1842.(802) George died May 31, 1849 in Perry Co., OH.. His body was interred after May 31, 1849 in Zion Ridge Cem., Perry Co., OH., Zion Ridge.(803) There is a record of this marriage written in German Script in the Swinehart Family Bible found in Carol Swinehart's book Jurig Michael Schweinhard Family, the German Connection. This record was transcribed by Hans Bauer of Ohio. It is written in Steil-Schrift German which means steep-script. He learned this writing method in the last year that it was taught in Germany before Hitler did away with it. So, if Hans had been one year younger, he wouldn't have been able to translate the marriage record for us. Hans translation is as follows: George Swinehart married second time with Christina Buschach from Reading Township Perry County in the state of Ohio on the 18th day of September in the year of our lord 1842. - Carol Swinehart who also reads German fluently differs with Hans Bauer and says that this should read Auschach. Ailing George and wife, Christena Swinehart (she signed with a mark) sold their property on 4 May 1849 to Adam Swinehart. In this deed George made provisions for Christiana after his death. Vol 1: 141, Perry County Deeds - per Carol Swinehart. Her name is spelled "Christianah" in the Partition Record, spelled "Christenia" on her tombstone. Nickname used was Teena.
