I am searching for missing information about my ancestor Frederick BLYLY, son of Jacob of Wurttemberg, southwestern Germany. Frederick possibly had an older brother George Michael and a younger brother John Jacob. They likely left Germany before 1855.
Frederick BLYLY (born 1830 Wurttemberg, Germany; died 26 Feb 1895 IN) married 20 Feb 1863 in LaGrange County IN to Mary WARNER (born 22 Mar 1842 Richland Township, Cambria County PA as daughter of William WARNER and Katherine FRAIN; died 25 Mar 1922 IN) and they resided in Lock Township, Elkhart County IN. Their children were: Abraham Harshberger (Mary's son born about 1860); Katherine (born summer? 1864 IN); Emanuel (1866/67 IN); William (born 20 Jan 1870 IN).
My lineage: Frederick Mary's son William BLYLY (born 20 Jan 1870; died 17 Apr 1956) married 3 Dec 1893 to Ella May SIGERFOOS, daughter of Crayton Hail SIGERFOOS and Sarah Jane LAKE, all these events in Elkhart County IN.
Frederick fought in the Civil War from Sep 1864 to Jun 1865. Note that the spelling of Frederick's last name has changed from the original which was probably "BLEILE". Frederick's father was Jacob, but his mother is unknown.
Frederick likely had at least 2 brothers. An older brother George Michael BLYLY (born 1815) married Christiana (born 1836 Canada) and had a daughter Sarah (born 1855 IN) and a son George (born 1863 IN). A younger brother John Jacob BLEILI (born 1827), married Mary Holdrerd on 28 Jul 1861 in Elkhart County IN, and also fought in the Civil War as Jacob BLILIE / BLILY / BLILEE from Sep 1864 to Jun 1865. Also, a Ludwig BLILY of Lock, Elkhart County IN witnessed the widow Mary's application for accrued pension in 1895.
Can we confirm or add to any of these relationships? Willing to share past research, but limited in time lately.
