I need anything that might connect me to Martin CATON's siblings and/or parents.

Martin was a Sergent in the Union Army, Co. F., 142nd PA INF., out of Somerset, CO., PA. Robert Gillie (gillie6922@aol.com) Gaithersburg, MD (301) 330-1566

BEAM, BETZ, BIESECKER, COVER, GOHN, KING, LUTZ, SHAULIS, SIPE posted by Billie Leclerc on Sunday, December 15, 1996

Christian and Christiana BETZ reared a family of 10 children on a farm near/in Jennerstown, Somerset CO., PA. Who were Christian and Christiana? Where & when were they born...in U.S. or in Europe? What was Christiana's maiden name? Christian Betz died in Jenners in 1825. His widow married John Keefer about 3 years later, but I haven't found records of this latter marriage...only references to settlement of Christian's will and to their minor children. Their eldest 4 or maybe 5 children were possibly born in Allegany. Does this refer to Allegany, a township of Somerset Co., or was Jenners Twp. part of Allegany County, MD from about 1793-1799? Their son Henry Betz married Elizabeth BEAM, no date know; but they also lived and farmed in Somerset CO, PA. Henry Betz was a deacon/elder of the Beams German Reformed Church in Jenners. He and Elizabeth had 9 children between 1821 & 1845, all born in Somerset Co. I have sketchy information about most of these descendents. I am interested in any pertinent information about these Betz people. Some of the Somerset families that Betz daughters married into: J.J. GOHN, Frederick BIESECKER, Michael SIPE, J.J. COVER, Samuel LUTZ and Levi SHAULIS, Wheeler KING, & J. K. P. Biesecker.
