    Notes 
    • Information from Mariana L Zuelsdorf:
      Notes by Gerald Schori -

      John Neuenschwander, son of Ulrich Neuenschwander, lived at the Easley farm across the river from New Martinsville, West Virginia, at Duffy on the very top of the hill. He met and married Civilla Harman, who lived in New Martinsville. Later, packing her and her square piano, he moved to Elgin, Iowa, where he was carriage and wagon maker. After Joseph Harman was injured at Shiloh, he went to Iowa to visit his sister Civilla, and met Mary Bauder who was living with her sister, Elizabeth and husband, Ben Schori. After Joseph returned to New Martinsville, he realized that he was smitten by Mary and wrote to his brother-in-law John, asking John to plight his troth on his behalf with Ben Schori regarding the possibility of marriage to Mary Bauder. Ben Schori discussed this with his wife, Elizabeth, who discussed it with sister Mary, and it was agreed. At this point, Joseph returned to Elgin where he and Mary were married at the home of her brother.
