Descendants of Jacob Harnsberger
Generation No. 1
1. JACOB6 HARNSBERGER (CONRAD5, STEPHEN4, JOHN3, JACOB2, HANS JACOB1 HERRENSPERGER) was born September 21, 1781 in Augusta Par ( Rockingham Co), VA, and died September 1847 in Montgomery, Alabama. He married CATHERINE HARNSBERGER 1805 in Rockingham Co, VA, daughter of ADAM HARNSBERGER and CATHERINE NALLE.
Notes for CATHERINE HARNSBERGER:
Catherine was the daughter of Adam Harnsberger, son of Stephen, son of John ( Hans ), and she married her first cousin Jacob Harnsberger, son of Conrad, son of Stephen, son of John ( Hans ). Catherine and Jacob were married in Rockingham County, Virginia, where their first two children were born. They removed to Clark County, Ohio, where seven more children were added to the family. In the late 1820's they move to Rush County, Indiana, but remained there a comparative short period of time, then going to Clinton County. In 1830 Catherine passed on and was buried on the "home place", as was the custom in those days. This property passed into other hands and eventually became a burying ground. It was at the time three miles south of the present city of Frankfort, but the town grew up to it, and then around it. It was called Old South Cemetary.
Catherine Harnsberger was a "real daughter" of the American Revolution. Both her father, Adam, and father in law Conrad, were soldiers in that war ( and later officers in the War of 1812); her mother's father Colonel William Nalle, was Adam's commanding officer in the Revolution. Her grandfather Stephen Harnsberger, furnished supplies to the Continental army as did her husbands grandfather Henry Miller, and his great-grand father Adam Miller.
