The historical records such as the one below agree that Lydia (or Lyda) is the given name of Phillip’s wife and mother of his children.


The information indicating that Lydia Neiswander whom Phillip married in Franklin County, Ohio in 1834, clearly shows a marriage 19 years after his first child was born (whose name was Lydia).  Phillip’s son born in 1834 is often shown with Lydia’s surname, Neiswander, as his middle name.

My direct ancestor was born in 1821 many years prior to Phillip’s 1834 recorded marriage with Lydia Neiswander.  I don’t know how common it may have been during this time to get married many years after beginning a family.  It seems more likely that Phillip’s children born between 1815 & 1834 were not Lydia Neiswander’s children.

I have found a great deal of information on many of Phillip’s descendants but not anything that provides clarity about the mother(s) of his children.  The table below includes the information about heirs as described in the 1864 land partition record (see my Johann Phillip Glick post) plus some of my research notes.

No Story Too Small offered a challenge: have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor. 
Each of my posts for this challenge will include in the title “52 Ancestors Challenge” and will have the tag of 52Ancestors.
