Am seeking information on branch of Rhodehamel family line in Indiana beginning in 1889 with George T. Rhodehamel in LaGrange, IN then son Cleo Rhodehamel up to 1964. I am trying to clarify my GF's connection to George T. Rhodehamel back in Miami Co., OH in the 1860's. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

This question probably belongs in the Genealogy subforum which you can find here: //www.city-data.com/forum/genealogy/

The People Search forum is for people searching for people who might still be alive.

What do you have already?

What is her age to establish where she may fit into the generations since the 1860's?

Cleo and his mother (born 1872 and married 1889) should be the ones shown on Find A Grave. There is mention of the father George but no listing for him.

Husband of 3rd cousin x1 removed posted early last year. Did you post that?

https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/f...887919&df=all&

So nothing above except from that well known site.

Post what you have and 1+ members here can take a closer look.

The unusual name caught my eye. I only had a bit of time. The last name was misspelled or mis-transcribed in many records. I believe you are looking for support docs to tie Cleo Frank back to Miami County family. Hope this is what you need.

Summary:

1. Peter & Caren (Cairns) Rhodehamel born abt 1799, lived in Miami County, Ohio in 1850.
their son-

2. Jacob Rhodehamel &
m1 in 1853 Elizabeth Jane Cruea (Thomas & Charlotte Cruea)
their son-

3. George Theodore Rhodehamel &
m1 in 1875 Hannah Adelia (Della) Hahn,
m2 in 1889 Julia May Green,
m3 in 1901 Alice Schneider.

If you wish, I can read up on Peter Rhodehamel (George T's grandfather). He may be the son of Jacob Rhodehamel b 15 Feb 1758 d 5 Jan 1835, buried Miami County, Ohio. I would not wish jump to that conclusion without research. Peter's mother appears to be Maria born abt 1766 in Germany. Find a grave which can be inaccurate says Peter stats are 1799-1875 born in Westmoreland, Pennsylvania. While his daughter Minerva's death cert says he was born in Germany.

The Jacob Rhodehamel who was George Theodore's father was a civil war vet Union Co B 71st Infantry Ohio, where he was a wagon master. Buried West Charleston cemetery, Miami County, Ohio.

George Theodore Rhodehamel was married several times & had several children. Wife Hannah Hahn "Della" (1858-1943) was his first wife. She had several husbands after George. I do not know if they were formally divorced. Married 1892 Jay Co, Ind. to Edward Breese. She died as Mrs Gilbert Sisson whom she had married in 1918. A son Clayton Ellsworth Rhodehamel (1882-1958) born in Versailles, Ohio was her son with George T Rhodehamel, identified on his death cert.
