Shultz/Empie/Emichen/Waters, William

Sue Van Wie's book shows William SHULTZ as being the third of 11 children of Henrich SCHULTZ born 1750 and Anna Barbara EMPIE. However, Mr. Witthoft in a CD "The Descendants of John Ernst EMICHEN Emigrant to America, Vol 1” shows entirely different children. Please help me discover which is correct.  My father, Charles Ray WATERS, who did research many years ago, based his membership in SAR on being descended from Henrich and William.

Spohn, Isabella

Seeking proof of parentage of Isabella Spohn (1830-1866) who was most likely the daughter of Jacob Spohn and his wife Barbara Rebecca Ansapch. Jacob died of cholera intestate in 1849. Isabella married George Swinehart in 1848 in Perry Co, Ohio only a court record exists with no mention of her parents. After Barbara Rebecca Anspach Zartman Spohn dies in 1875 in Perry County, Ohio, the family lands are divided amongst the children, but no record of any given to Isabella, the youngest child.  We also checked to see if Jacob Spohn received a pension for his service in the War of 1812, but there is no record of that. The only thing we can prove is the Joel was a brother of Isabella and the parentage of Joel can be proven. However, they may have been half-siblings and Barbara Rebecca may not have been Isabella's mother. Any suggestions on a way to get around this brick wall are most appreciated.
