Genealogy of Johann Peter Stoneburner

Johann Peter, second son of Jacob and Anna Stoneburner, married Susanna Compher? sometime around 1782/85 in Loudoun County, Virginia. They were still living in Virginia in 1810 but near 1813 they had moved to Ohio. In 1820 Peter became one of the first officers of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. Later Peter and Susanna became members of the New Jerusalem Church of Deavertown, Ohio which was in the northwest part of Morgan County. His will was made in Morgan County, Ohio on the 29th day of September 1821. It read:

“In the Name of God, Amen: I, Peter Stoneburner of York Township, Morgan County and State of Ohio, farmer; being strong in mind and memory, make this my last will and testament. 1st. I bequeath my soul to God who gave it to me, and my body to the earth to be buried decently in a Christian manner. I bequeath this plantation whereon I live, and the house to my wife Susanna Stoneburner as long as she lives, I also bequeath to her all the household furniture that is in the house, I also bequeath to her one horse and one cow. I bequeath to John Wiley one hundred and sixty acres of land, to be purchased for him out of this estate where on I now live. I appoint my sons Michael Stoneburner and John Stoneburner as my executors. I allow my Executors to purchase the said quarter section of land for John Wiley and give him the deed for it so as soon as he is of the age of twenty one years. My wife Susanna Stoneburner shall have all I mention to her in this will: but if she should marry she shall have nothing but the third, the remainder shall be divided equally among my children. I appoint my executors to manage and conduct this plantation to the best advantage. I allow my wife Susanna Stoneburner to leave the third of this property to whom she pleases. If John Wiley’s time should not be elapsed at my death he shall serve his time until he is the age of twenty one years with one of my executors, and if he does not put up his time or should run away before he is of age of twenty one years, he shall get no land.

In testimony of the within I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 29th day of September 1821.”
