I recently wrote about young John F. Bahn, the ward of Henry Trisel, who lived near Chattanooga, Ohio, in the late 1800s. Young John Bahn (1865-1876) was the son of Henry’s wife Elizabeth (Feldman) Trisel and her first husband Johann Bahn.
Last week I identified the last name of Henry Trisel’s young ward, John F. Bahn, the son of Henry’s wife Elizabeth (Feldman) Trisel and her first husband Johann Bahn. Johann Bahn served in the Civil War and perished in the Sultana explosion on his way home from the war in April 1865.
A few years ago I wrote a Tombstone Tuesday blog post about John F, the adopted son of Henry Trisel. The young boy’s grave marker is located in the center section of Zion Lutheran Cemetery, Chattanooga, Ohio, in the children’s section of the cemetery. I wondered who the boy John really was.
Greetings from the Chattanooga, Ohio, area. Yes, Ohio has its very own Chattanooga, aka Chatt, a small village in west-central Ohio, near the Indiana border. I have been doing family history research for over 25 years and am a Board-Certified genealogist, certified by the Board for Certification of Genealogists®. My main genealogical interests are family research, cemetery research, and historical and genealogical research of the Chatt area, with a focus on two area Lutheran Churches, both named Zion Lutheran, one in Chatt and the other in Schumm, Ohio. Family names I am researching include Miller, Schumm, Brewster, Rueck, Reid, Headington, Huey, Bryan, Whiteman, Schinnerer, Scaer, Breuninger, Bennett, and a few others. I belong to several lineage societies, including the Daughters of the American Revolution, U.S. Daughters of 1812, First Families of Ohio, and First Families of Mercer and Van Wert Counties. I am also a retired dental hygienist and our church organist. I hope you enjoy Karen's Chatt.
