Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Peter B III VAN GUNDY

Residences & events:

1800 Mercer Co, PA, was his place of residence at census time, the only Gundy in the county.

1810 Mahoning Twp, Mercer Co, PA. That year there was a David Gandy living in the same area as Peter. Peter Gundy was 26-44 years of age and his household included 2 males under 10, 2 females under 10, 3 females at 10-15, 1 at 16-25, and 1 was 26-44.

1816, 1817, 1818 Green Twp, Ross Co, OH. Peter was listed there in the state census all three years.

1830 Same place. He was 50-60 years old and lived alone. Brother Samuel was next door followed by Peter Ring and Jacob Van Gundy farther down the road. Other neighbers were Mays and Sidenbenders.

1840 Green twp, Ross Co, OH. At census time Peter was 60-70 years old. The only other person in the house was a female aged 15-20 (Henrietta). Three doors down was Michael Van Gundy with Isaac and Jacob 6 and 7 doors farther down.

7/31/1850 Same place. In that census Peter was 75, a farmer with real estate valued at $3900. Living with him were young wife "Henryetta", 25; Charley N, 4, Francis M, 7/12, and Ring inlaws, Peter, 68, Mary, 65, Martha C, 21, along with Hamel Lewis, 13, Henry White, 35, and 18 year old Christina ?, all without occupations.

6/23/1860 Still there, PO Chillicothe. That year the census taker listed Peter "Gundy" at age 84, a wealthy farmer with $5000/700 worth of property. Wife Henrietta was 36 and the children were Charles, 14, Franklin, 11, Jerome, 8, Benner, 6, and Lafayette, 3. Also living there was Solomon Seymour, 23, no occupation, Elizabeth Dumond, 17, domestic, and Lewis Seymour, 14. They lived between 2 young Henry Seymour families.

Some say he died 2/15/1863 but the date posted is from cemetery records.

His will left the estate to wife, Henrietta, until son, Charles Nelson, came of age. A petition filed by the administrator of the estate verified the wife's name and also listed children Francis M, Jerome, Benjamin F, and James L.

Was Peter really buried there if he died in OH or IL?
