[NI045728] 1. Look in the index under LINTT, FAMILY HISTORY OF MOLLY for a very extensive biography of the Lintt family from it's beginning in Fayette co., PA to Lincoln, NE.

[NI045754] Don Lady noted that Benjamin was supposedly mentally retarded. The family story was that he suffered a head injury at the age of six (6). Don's mother Bertha Lint didn't try to keep track of him but he probably lived until about 1940 and was in a home for the aged or a state institution in either OR or CA. He was a laborer and illiterate as far as Don knows.

[NI046280] After an interview with Robert Lewis Lint in Danville, KS on the evening of 29 Mar 97.... I have detached Ora E. Lint from the family of Conrad Q. Lint and placed it here in Abraham Lint's family. The original connection wasn't 100% positive and unfortunately neither is this one. The circumstancial evidence is stronger for this connection. It seems as if Conrad Q. was the uncle instead of the father. It
is also possible there were two Ora Lint's in two very close branches. For the moment Ora will rest here though but not peacefully.

[NI046291] Albert is adopted formally in 1956.

[NI046292] Pamela was formally adopted in 1956.

[NI046298] Mary Slater had a sis. Margaret known as "Peggy" who married a John Kline. When Mary was 7 yrs old [in 1814] she went to OH with this sis. & lived with her until she m. George Krieger in 1826. Mary also had 2 or 3 bro.s. 1 went to MO & 1 went to OR. The 1 who went to MO became quite well-to-do. The Slater family was supposedly English or of English descent.

[NI046334] Reformed Lutheran Church

1. Christian was born in Greenville twp., Somerset co., PA as the first son of Daniel Lint by his first wife. When Daniel moved to Holmes Co., OH in 1833, Christian (then 8 years old) went with the family. In Holmes Co. near Farmerstown he met Lydia Krieger and they married. They had their first three children (Sarah, Isaiah, and Jacob) in Holmes Co. but moved south and were living in Pee Pee twp., Pike co., OH when their next two sons (Franklin and George were born). Lydias parents were originally from PA but were living in Farmerstown when Christian and Lydia met. They later moved to Scioto twp., Pike co., OH and could have been the reason for Christian and Lydia moving south to Pee Pee twp. When Christian joined the OH Infantry in 1864 (for civil war) Lydia stayed with or near her parents in Pike Co..

Hockensmith, 144 Wilson St, 19th Ward. He was 81 yrs old Aug 28. Although incapacitated for several yrs, Mr. St. Clair became bedfast only on last Mon. His death was attributed to infirmities incident to age. S/o James & Thankful D. (Geer) St. Clair, he was b on site of St. Clair Reservoir. He & Ms Salome Holsopple were m many yrs ago. Mrs. St. Clair d 24 yrs ago. Surviving are the following chldn: Mrs. Effie Bush, Middle Taylor Twp., Julia, w/o Charles Wilson, Middle Taylor Twp.; Blanche, w/o Rev. W.C.

In later yrs he entered the employ of the old Cambria Steel Co & was retired on pension a few yrs ago. Funeral arrangements have not been completed.

[NI046342] These two sisters married these two brothers and everyone lives in Coshocton.

[NI046344] For Isaiah's early years refer to the notes on his father Christian. While his family was in Waterloo, DeKalb co., IN, Isaiah found work on the farm of Isaac Grate (whose wife was a McClish) in Smithfield twp., DeKalb co,. IN. Isaiah married Emma Ann McClish "Shaw" who was either widowed or divorced from Shaw & 3 of his chldrn. So Isaiah began his family by taking in Emma's chldrn (they kept the Shaw name though) & then having 3 of their own (all born in DeKalb Co.). In Apr 1894 Isaiah moved to Amble, Montcalm co., MI where he had a farm & spent the remaining 28 years raising his family. His younger bro. George (13 years younger) apparently visited & lived with Isaiah on the farm for a while because George met & married Nellie Thompson who was from Amble, MI.
Isaiah, Emma, Lydia & quite a few Thompsons are buried in the Amble Cem. which I visited with Sue Baker during the 94 research trip/Coral Lint reunion.

[NI046355] George Brinton Lint was born in Pee Pee Twp., Pike Co. OH before the end of the civil war while his father was off at war with the 73rd OH Infantry. His father Christian had enlisted in the army 8 mo.s before in Feb. 1864. While Christian was in the army his wife Lydia was living with or near her parents in Pike Co.. George's brother Franklin had also been born in Pee Pee twp 2 yrs previously in 1862 so the family had been there a while. When Christian was discharged & returned home from the war they moved to Waterloo in DeKalb Co., IN presumably near relatives or friends already in the area. George was only a yr old when the family of 7 (2 parents & 5 chldrn) moved to IN in 1865 so the event didn't effect him. George apparently went to school & grew up around Waterloo. His older sis. Sarah Jane was married to James Fike in 1867 a few yrs after the family arrived in Waterloo. The father Christian died in 1871 so Lydia was left to raise 4 sons; Isaiah 20, Jacob 16, Franklin 9, & George 7. The youngest daug. Edith had died in childbirth in Waterloo in 1868 so she wasn't a factor. Jacob then died in 1873 so Lydia was basically left with two boys Franklin and George because Isaiah was then working on the Grate farm where he met his wife and married in 1881. In the meantime I believe Lydia & the 2 boys were being supported by Isaiahs meager farm earnings & Sarah & James Fike. George's oldest bro. Isaiah (13 yrs older) bought land & moved his new family to Amble, MI in 1894 where he remained. Lydia moved to the farm in Amble & lived there with Isaiah & Emma until she died in 1920. George & Franklin had struch out on their own by this time but George returned to Amble because in 1899 George met & married Nellie May Thompson who's family was also from Amble. After George married Nellie they moved to the Frankfort, KS area where he went into the Grain business. George's bro. had preceeded him into the area & was living in Hiawatha, KS about 50 mi.s east also in the grain business. Bro. Franklin had been in the NE corner of KS since about 1888 when his 1st son Claude was born there. Previous to that time he had been just north of there in Stella, NE where he'd married & earned his teachers certificate. I believe George came to KS because his older bro. Franklin was there. I also believe Franklin came to SE NE (Richardson Co.) & later NE KS (Brown Co.) because Dr. Henry McKenzie Lint lived there (they were 2nd cousins). I mention George's older bro. Franklin here so much because he had a tremendous influence on his "little bro." George. The story goes that George lost his grain business in a 1901 grain elevator fire which makes sense because George's 1st son Roy was born in Frankfort, KS in 1900 but his 2nd son Leigh was born in 1902 in Leigh, NE well to the north. It's interesting that Franklin lost his grain business in 1906 in an elevator fire. Were these separate incidences or the same one told by separate branches of the family given incorrect dates? To go on though, in 1907 Franklin went to Spokane, WA (another grain business) & George went to Denver, CO where he worked as a streetcar conductor. His daug. Nina was born in Golden, CO in 1908. At the same time Franklin settled in the Lewiston/Clarkson area. In 1910 George moved his family of five to the Weiser, ID area where they settled & remained. This was only about 150 mi.s south of bro. Franklin. George & Nellie lived at their home on East Commercial st. in Weiser for his last 25 years until he died in 1935. Nellie lived there another 22 years until she died in 1957. They're both buried together in Weiser. All 3 of their children were raised & later married in Weiser.

[NI046369] born in Somerset twp., near the town of Somerset the family moved to Greenville twp., in 1816 [he was 13 at the time] where Daniel lived until he moved to OH in 1833 [age 30]. He farmed in Holmes Co., OH from 1833 until 1851 (18 years). In 1851 he moved to Coshocton Co., OH where he remained from 1851 to 1865 (14 years). In 1865 he moved to Tuscarawas Co., OH where he remained (18 years) until he died in May of 1883. Both his 1st & 2nd wives (Sally & Mary) as well as his 1st son Samuel died are buried in Greenville Twp., Somerset Co., PA

[NI046398] Jacob Lint was cooper for 7 yrs & then he bought the home where he lived to the age of 90 yrs. At the time of his death he was the oldest living man in Greenville Twp.. He was a member of the Reformed Church in Greenville twp., for over 50 yrs.

[NI046619] In the early 1700s a family named Rummel left its home in Rummelsburg, Germany, near the town of Berlin, & came to Amer. More than a century & a half later a village situated in the far northern end of Somerset Co. in the state of PA was named for a descendant of this immigrant family. The Village of Rummel, east of Windber Boro, was named for the area's 1st postmaster, John M. Rummel he was the 7th chld b. to Joseph & Maria Meyer-Blough Rummel in 1853 in the Morningland dist. of Paint Twp. He grew to manhood in this area & m. Hannah Oaks, dau. of Joseph & Margaret Custer Oaks. They had 1 chld b., Elizabeth, who died when she was 11 yrs of age. John & Hannah Rummel purchased land from Andrew & Noah Shaffer, sons of Daniel, on Nov 3 1884, which was situated at a post at the public rd leading to Ashtola where the state rd & the Ashtola Rd fork. The land extended to the Jacob Rose estate. The Rummel post office was established on the parcel of land directly across from the German Bapt. Ch. The post office became a major pickup place for the mail, which was housed in a small grocery store operated by John M. Rummel, the postmaster. The store also became one of the busiest business places when the farmers came into town for supplies & mail long before Windber Boro existed with its many newer stores. The Luth.s of Rummel decided to erect a church building in their vicinity & on Feb 23 1903, a charter was signed for the Mt. Zion Luth. Ch. by John P. Statler, John M. Rummel, Simon P. Naugle, Lewis Weaver, William Weaver & Isaac Ream. On Mar 29 1903, the cornerstone was laid for the building & John M. Rummel donated the bell, which was thought to be the finest in Somerset Co. John & Hannah remained as residents of the Village of Rummel until their deaths in 1933 & were buried in the Luth. Church Cem. in Scalp Level.
The Somerset Co. Outline, written in 1922 by John C. Cassady, gives the establishment date for the village as 1875 & the date of the naming of the Village of Rummel as 1881. The rural community nestled in the hills of Paint Twp is a close-knit hamlet with the residents, for the most part, being direct desc.s of the original landowners. In the early 1800s the land was called Greenland.

[NI046688] To begin with, there has been much confusion about Conrad Gillian Lint. Much of the confusion is brought about by the fact that the Bishop Conrad Gillian Lint [born 10 May 1834] was named after his uncle Conrad Gillian Lint who was born 2 Dec 1798 & married Martha Findley. Inadequate research has mixed up both birth dates & wives. One researcher even tacked Jr. onto the Bishops name in the belief he was his uncles son. Bishop Conrad Gillian Lint who was married to Catherine Elizabeth Flickinger.
