MUTH, PERRY Looking for GEORGE MUTH, b. about 1799 in Hesse, Germany. He was a farmer and a United Brethren clergyman. He married Sarah, b. about 1803 in Pennsylvania. Their first three children were born in Ohio; as of the fourth child born in 1838, they were in Hancock Co., IN. Their children and approximately birth years were: Adaline (1829), Daniel (1831, m. Amy Ann Ashcraft on 25 March 1852), Henry (1834), Caroline (1836), Augustus W. (1838, m. Elizabeth CONNER on 27 October 1859), David M. (1842, m. Anna Bell WILKINSON on 2 February 1862), and Elizabeth Ann MUTH (1846, m. Elijah J. PERRY on 22 November 1863). As of the 1880 US census, they were still residing in Brandywine Township, Hancock Co. ---- In 1880, their daughter (my 2nd great grandmother, Elizabeth Ann MUTH PERRY) and her three children were living with George and Sarah. She was married to Elijah "Joseh" PERRY. I am speculating that she may have become widowed between their third and last born child in 1876, and the US census in 1880 where Elizabeth and her children were living with her parents in Hancock County. The children of Elijah J. PERRY and Elizabeth Ann MUTH PERRY and their births were: Vida Ann (22 February 1865, m. Zachary Taylor ARMSTRONG on 2 June 1890), Charles (1872), and Alma Hazard (1876).
