Breakthrough: Susana Margaret Wierman b. 1817 was the daughter of Samuel Wierman b 11 Feb 1783 in York, PA; d. 07 Sep 1854 In Wayne, Ohio. He married Margaret Gardner b. 1784 in York, Adams, PA. She died in Decatur Macon, Ilinois while there visiting her daughter. Samuel and Margaret came to Ohio in 1828.
The genealogist at the Wooster Library found a land deed giving Margaret Smith 5 acres prior to his death in 1854. After finding Samuel's grave on Find-A-Grave, I contacted the administrator, Jim Wierman, who kindly sent Bible records naming Susana Margaret as Samuel's daughter and listing her marriage to John Smith and first two children.
After searching for decades for her parents, this discovery was quite a thrill. Anyone have any ideas about John Smith's parents?
