George Munk and Catharine Ann Oyster

My 3rd great grandparents < Eva Munk < George Slusser < Kathryn Ferrell

George Franklin Munk was born about 1834 in Knox, Columbiana County, Ohio. His parents were Christoph Jakob Munk and Regina Schultes, both of Germany. I have been DNA matched to both of his parents through Ancestry.com. George Munk passed on September 3, 1873, in Nimishillen, Stark, Ohio. He was a farmer.

On March 12, 1858 in Mahoning County, Ohio, he married Catharine Ann Oyster. She was born December 26, 1839 in Columbiana County, the daughter of John Oyster and Susanna Landis. Catharine died on September 21, 1873. She and George both died of typhoid fever. They are both buried at Union Cemetery in Louisville, Stark, Ohio.

In 1850 George was living with his brother Jacob Jr. in Knox, while Catharine’s family were found in Mahoning County. For a history lesson, Mahoning became a county in 1846; before that it was part of Columbiana and Trumbull Counties. Catharine’s family lived in Smith Township which was once Columbiana but then became Mahoning. In 1860 George and Catharine were living in Smith, Mahoning, and by 1870, the family was living in Washington Township, Stark County.

Their children:

  1. Mary Alice born December 1858- October 22 1935. First she married Jacob Vernier (February 28, 1852- September 6, 1912.), a farmer. Second, she married Stephen Schell (1846). Mary and Jacob are buried together at Union Cemetery in Louisville, Stark, Ohio. Their children:
    • William born May 7 1882, died April 21, 1906. His mother’s name is listed as Mary Alice Wunk on a few of the digital records. He was an electrician. Single at death. Died from Spinal meningitis.

    • infant? born February 18, 1884 – no further information

    • Cora Belle born November 25, 1885; died November 26, 1890.

    • Eva Bertha born January 9, 1888, died May 21, 1926. There is a birth record for a male born the same day as Eva, same parents. So she may have been a twin, but it appears her brother may have been stillborn or else this was an error on the record. Eva died from influenza. She had married Homer Lloyd Newhouse (1885-1973.) In 1920, Mary Alice was living with them. Their children: Violet (May 24, 1914 – May 22, 1996) married ? Benz. Homer Sr. remarried Myrtie Green (1896-1984, of Kentucky) and they had two children: Homer Jr. (December 9, 1927-April 21, 1985, he died in Los Angeles, CA) and Helen. Homer Jr. served in the military after WWII. Helen married Donald Ray Williamson.

    • Arthur Jacob, born September 14, 1889, died March 17, 1944 in California. He married Bertha Mae Mong (1892-1967). Their children:

      • Donald W born March 1, 1912, died August 14, 1971. In 1940 he was working as a steel mill inspector.

      • Kenneth L born March 5, 1914, died September 14, 1980. In 1940 he was working as a farmer.

        • Bernard Arthur born October 25, 1916, died November 16, 1965. Bernard married Ruth Fortado, and they lived in California since before 1935. Their children: Bruce, Linda, Jesse, Steve and:

          • Sandra married ? Chandler

          • Gary Bernard born July 1, 1940, died May 18, 2011 in Utah. He married Celia Wittwer. His tombstone names five children: Gary Scott, Jeffrey John, Darcie Ann, Dore, and Danielle.

          • Nancy married ? Cassano.

        • Maxine Lillian born April 19, 1920, died November 1, 1994. She married Harry Earl Pemberton of Pennsylvania (March 12, 1915- November 18, 1963.)
  2. George F born 1861. Married Adaline Seefong. Of note: Adaline’s sister, Amanda, married Francis M Oyster. One daughter is listed on the 1930 Census record, Laura Nolan. They also lived in California. George worked in real estate. Of note, in 1900 a David Landis, age 79, was living with them as a laborer. A Nettie Williams is also listed, as a servant.

  3. John W born 1864, died April 23, 1961. He is buried at Robertsville Cemetery in Stark County. He worked as a farmer. John married Christina “Tena” S Anthony (1863-1940) and they had two children:
    • Winnie I was born February 27, 1891.

    • Russell Orlo was born January 27, 1895 and he worked as a farmer. He married Elica C. Folk (1896-1960)  Russell died February 19, 1993. At least one child: Earl (March 29, 1919-February 19, 1995). He married Lillian (1922.)

  4.  Eva Viola
  5. Ancestry files names Anna E Munk as the next child, born and died 1869. I can find no proof of this, except there is a grave for an Anna E Munk buried at Union Cemetery. DOB is 1869, death unknown.
  6. Infant Munk, born March 22, 1872. This is probably Cora May Munk, who is found living with her Uncle Peter Schell in 1880.

Henry Wilson Slusser and Eva Viola Munk

2nd great grandparents < George Franklin Slusser < Kathryn Viola Slusser Ferrell

DNA confirmed match.

Henry Wilson Slusser was born September 7, 1861 in Louisville, Stark, Ohio, US to William Slusser and Eliza Ringer. He died February 2, 1937 in Alliance, Stark, Ohio, US and buried February 6, 1937 at Fairmount Cemetery in Alliance. He died from pneumonia, influenza, and acute dilatation of the heart.

He married Eva Viola Munk on December 6, 1883. They were both able to read and write. Eva completed 8th grade.

Henry’s father was killed at the Battle of Vicksburg during the Civil War when Henry was just shy of 2 years old. He did receive a pension for his father’s service. In 1870, he was living with his stepfather, David Snyder. From there, he lived with his grandparents, Jonathan Schlosser and Sarah Trump Schlosser, in 1880. In 1921 he was retired as a farmer. He originally worked a general farm. In 1920 he was working at a dairy farm. In 1930 he was working as an assistant at what looks to read nash garage, while his son Guy was the manager.

Eva Viola Munk was the daughter of George Franklin Munk and Catherine Ann Oyster. Eva’s maiden name is sometimes seen as Monk, but in general the spelling typically seemed to be with a U. She was born November 29, 1865, and died October 19, 1947. Her cause of death was coronary occlusion.

Like her husband, Eva lost not one but both of her parents at the early age of 8. Her parents died within just a few weeks of each other from typhoid fever. Her grandfather John Oyster died a few months later as well. At least for part of her childhood, she grew up living with her uncle Joseph Oyster. It appears the family name was spelled with an O, but after her parents death she started using the U spelling. I’m unaware of what happened to her siblings after their parents death, at least at this time.

After Henry’s death, Eva was living with her daughter Bertha Craft and husband at 4218 52nd Street, Alliance, Ohio.

Their children:

  1. Estella May Slusser born May 5, 1886, died September 25, 1964. Married Irvin J Bandy.
