Weigel Family History
can trace this line back to Valentin Weigel who was born in Saalbach,
Brandenburg, Germany between 1667 and 1677.
His son, Johann Martin Weigel and his wife, Anna Dorthea Friddel or
Triddel immigrated to the Colonies after they married July 11, 1729 in Saalbach.
They had their first son, Johann Sebastian Weigel in Germany but their
second child, a daughter, Maria Juliana was born in Manchester Township, York
Co., PA on Oct. 22, 1733. They had
nine children. Johann Martin Weigel
is buried in the Christ Lutheran Church Yard in York, PA.
It is probable that Anna Dorthea is buried there also, but we do not have
a record of this. She was alive when Martin died.
line continues through the first son, Johann Sebastian Weigel.
He married Susanna Catharina Lieb in York Co, PA about 1755.
Sebastian is buried in Neiman's Cemetery, West Manchester Twp., York Co.,
PA. We do not know where Susanna is
line continues through their second child, Anna Margaretha Weigel. She was born December 9, 1759 in Codorus Township, York Co.,
PA. She married George Philip
DeHoff there before 1784. They had
six children. She probably died
when the youngest child was born (1794) or shortly after as George Philip DeHoff
married again to Louise Krack before 1796.
They had ten more children. Click here

line continues through George Philip and Anna Margaretha’s son, George William
DeHoff who was born May 4, 1789 in Brodbecks, York Co., PA.
The DeHoff’s moved to Columbiana County, OH about 1812. George William married Catharina Weissleder there on
September 26, 1813. They had nine
line continues through their sixth child, John Dayhoff.
John appears to be the only one who used this spelling. Everyone else used the DeHoff spelling. This is the way it is spelled on his marriage record to Eliza
Flowers. (So far we have not been
able to trace the Flowers line,)
and Eliza had five children. Our
line continues through their second child, Rachel E. DeHoff.
She married Daniel Courtney on June 25, 1866 in Alliance, Stark County,
OH. They had ten children and died
when the youngest, who were twins, were only four years old.

Our line continues through their oldest daughter, Myrtle Courtney. She had three of her sisters living with her in the 1900 census. They were still minors. We discovered recently discovered that Ida and Ada were twins. Ida was a sickly child and died young, according to a son of Myrtle’s younger sister, Frances. We have not been able to get a death certificate for her just yet.
Courtney married Marion C. Knight on April 1, 1897 in Salem, Columbiana Co., OH.
