     Joseph Eisenman was born on 11 November 1818 in Oberrotweil, Baden, Germany.4 He was the son of Joseph Eisenman and Theresa Weissenhorn.2,3 He married Catherine Randall, daughter of William Randall and Esther Hopper.5 He died on 13 February 1877 in Strattanville, Clarion County, Pennsylvania, at age 58.6 He was buried in Strattanville Cemetery, Strattanville, Clarion County, Pennsylvania.7
     Following their marriage, Joseph Eisenman and Catherine Eisenman lived for a number of years at the "Eisenman Settlement" on the Fryburg-Shippenville Road in Elk Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania, where Joseph owned a farm near his father and brothers Christian and Harman.8,9 By 1870 Joseph Eisenman and Catherine Randall moved to Strattanville, Clarion County.10,11 He purchased a lot in Strattanville, Clarion County, in 1872 from John Strattan. The lot was sold to his son Samuel following Catherine's death in 1897.12
     Joseph Eisenman was a miner and burned charcoal at the Madison and Limestone iron furnaces in Clarion County for 22 summers.8,9
     Joseph was raised in the Catholic Church and all of his children except his youngest son James were baptised at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Fryburg, Washington Township, Clarion County. Joseph's wife Catherine who was a Protestant, was baptised into the Catholic church at St. Michael's on 5 January 1855. However, it appears that Joseph and his family did not remain affiliated with the Catholic church. Joseph and Catherine were buried in a Methodist-affiliated cemetery in Strattanville; however, Joseph's gravestone was engraved with a cross, typical of Catholic gravestone.13,7

     Michael Dunmire was born on 9 January 1802 in Lost Creek Valley, Greenwood Township, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of Henry Dunmire and Catherine Geyer.2,3 He married Mary Carney, daughter of Andrew Carney, on 31 March 1825.1,4 He married Mary Garvin, daughter of Samuel Garvin and Sarah Heck, on 23 August 1836.1 He died on 20 February 1885 in Strattanville, Clarion County, Pennsylvania, at age 83.5
     According to George B. Dunmire, author of the Dunmire Family History, Michael “had the same robust health as the other children. His early days were spent as other frontier children, learing home chores and farm duties. Educational advantages were few until the family moved to Mifflin County. Here, Michael attended the ‘New Schoolhouse’ which was the first building in the valley designed for school purposes. The first teacher was a Mr. Harper, but when Michael attended, as one of the ‘big boys’, the teacher was Daniel Jones of Hope Furnace.
     “There was a very special attachment between big Mike and his younger brother Gabriel. During school recess, the scholars played ‘Anty Over’. Gabriel, too small to play, would sit on a log to watch. When the ball was caught on one side, he would call to the others, ‘the ball is caught.’ These uninvited promptings angered James Crooks, one of the larger boys, who one day rushed over and struck Gabriel, knocking him off his perch. Mike dried his little brother’s tears and quietly took his place on the log, calling out as Gabriel had done. Crooks, who had not tested Mike’s strength, turned on him but was surprised by Mike’s fist which knocked him into a mortar bed, teaching him a lesson he had not expected to learn at school.
     “Michael grew into a well built, six-foot man with quick movements and great strength. This made him an excellent mower sought after by the neighbors. Michael Myers of Shirleysburg (some 20 miles distant) offered him an advance price to ‘lead his mowers.’ The mowers, learning of this, decided to make Mike earn his extra pay by ‘pushing him.’ Mike, paying no attention, kept out of their way, mowing steadily without any apparent sign of tiring. He even took longer cuts which meant harder work for those following, and by supper time the men were exhausted.
     “When Henry, Michael’s oldest brother, returned from learning the carpenter’s trade in Centre County, Michael became his apprentice and made the maple blanket chest for his special little brother Gabriel, owned today by EDH (who gave it to Lois Dunmire). Following his trade, he traveled widely, coming in contact with some wild and frivolous companions, but apparently without ill effect, for the influence of his parents predominated throughout his life.”.6
     Following his first marriage, Michael Dunmire lived in a small tenant house adjoining his father-in-law's farm in Wayne Township, Mifflin County. According to GBD, Michael followed his brother Henry to Cambria County where he purchased land and built a home. (Henry moved to Cambria County in 1836.) But the land was poor and after a few years, Michael and his family moved to Fisher, Millcreek Township, Clarion County.
     While Michael was enumerated in Mifflin County in the 1840 census, Clarion County records show that Michael did pruchase land there in 1840.7,8,9 He purchased 104 acres in Clarion Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania, in 1840 from the Bingham estate.10 He sold the 104 acres in Clarion Township in 1845 to Martha A. Carney.11 He purchased 102 acres in Clarion Township in 1851 from J.W. Guthrie. Michael sold that property in 1857 to H. Benton Barber.12 Following the sale of the property, Michael Dunmire continued to live in Mill Creek Township, Clarion County, Pennsylvania, working as a laborer, a tenant farmer, and a carpenter.13,14,15,16,17
     A collection of depositions given in support of a pension application for Mary and Michael based on their son David’s Civil War service give an insight into their life. Michael worked as a day laborer in the Fisher area. David also worked as a day laborer, contributing to the support of Michael’s household at least two years prior to his enlistment, according to a deposition given by Mary. According to a deposition by John Fisher of Fisher who “was acquainted with Michael Dunmire for about 40 years--was acquainted with Mary Garvin before her marriage with Michael Dunmire.... In the year 1862, he [Michael] worked for me [Fisher] when I had such light work as he was able to do but at and since that date I do not think he could posibly have supported by labour in the year 1861 and 62-- no more than his board or if he boarded himself--I would have given him no more than eight dollars per month. I am confident that his wages would not have been sufficient to support his family from that time to the present...” Adam Potter also of Millcreek Township stated in a deposition that Michael “worked for me more or less since 1864--he is a common labour depending on his labour for a living.... In the year 1862, he was about able to earn a scanty living for his family--from this date he failed rapidly in strength up to the year 1870--about this time or a few years later, he became a charge receiving help from the Township--to my knowledge he had no other resources other than charity. In a deposition given by Mary Dunmire dated May 1883, she states that “for the last six or seven years my husband has been incapasitated parsally(?) from doing manuel labour from old age... we have been receiving assistance from the Township of Millcreek for the last six years.” (Mary went on to state that “at no time in my life did we own any Real Estate” which does not exactly follow the official written record.) In a letter dated 2 October 1883 written by John Sevre, an overseer of the poor of Millcreek Township, to report that Mary Dunmire had died, he states that Michael and Mary “had been on the town eight or nine years, that she left five children, three girls and two boys, all of whom are very poor.” The letter goes on to report that Michael was living with a daughter and “had been taken off from the town.” Michael was reportedly living in Strattanville at this time which would suggest that he was living with his son-in-law and daughter John and Margaret Eisenman who lived at Strattanville.18

     Susan Ann Dreibelbis was born on 21 March 1850 in Richland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania.4,1 She was the daughter of Moses A. Dreibelbis and Mary Ann Engle.3 She married George Washington Coburn, son of J. H.

     Susan Ann Dreibelbis and George Washington Coburn lived in Cranberry Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania, where George was a farmer and an oil well driller.9,10,11
     According to the 1910 census enumeration, Susan had been married twice. In the 1880 census, presumably right before her marriage to George Coburn, Susan was listed as 29 years old and single, living in her father's household. It is posssible that Susan had been married before she married George, but there are no other known records of a previous marriage.10,9
