BASE LINE ROAD 1835-1992

 This project was started too late to take
 advantage of the memories of the people involved.
 In fact, too few of us are available from the next
 generation to represent them properly. We will
 start with Eberhard and Theresa (Schierloh)
  Eberhard was born in Germany, arrived in the Port
 of New York on 24th November 1848 when he was
 thirteen years old with his mother, a sister, her
 future husband and three brothers. They went on to
 live in Cincinnati, Ohio. When he was 22, he found
 his way to Glandorf, Ohio where he met and later
 married Theresa Schierloh on the 15th of
 September 1857. They moved to Cincinnati to live.
 They had three children, Mary Ann, Catharine and
  John was not yet two years old when Eberhard died
 28th of March 1863. Eberhard, Eberhard's mother
 and several other Hornung family members died
 within a two week period. I was unable to
 determine the actual cause of death. Both Typhoid
 Fever and Cholera were abundant for a 2 or 3 three
 year period in Cincinnati at that time.  
  Sometime later, I am not sure of the date,
 Theresa and her three children moved back to
 Putnam county. In 1866 she married Franz
 Brockman. They were blessed with five children.
