    Lists Simeon Beisheir's parents as Christopher Beisheir and Hanora Laman

  • Notes 
    • The identity of Christopher’s wife is conjectural at this point. However, Christopher Beysher and Hannah Beysher are each listed in the York Co, Pennsylvania Clerk of Courts Quarter Session Dockets for September 1798 with criminal cases and a charge of Larceny. And there is a Hannah Bisher in the 1836-37 Cincinnati City Directory Page 20: “Bisher, Hannah, Mrs.) Race bw Canal and 12th, Cincinnati, Ohio (Female)”.

      There is a marriage record in St. Louis, Missouri in 1879 for a Simeon Beishier and Margaret Stevens (nee Wilkerson) that lists Simeon’s parents as Christopher Beishier and Hanora Laman. (There are Lamans in Mongahan Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania in the 1790s.) Simeon was born 1818 in Ohio, and first appears as a butcher in an 1840 Cincinnati city directory, and his descendents claim his family was from Alsace-Lorraine. If the Hannah Beysher listed in the 1798 criminal case is the same person as Hanora in the 1879 marriage record, she could be the mother of all of Christopher’s children, including Simeon Beisheir. DNA evidence is mounting that would support this connection.

      Questions

      Why did Simeon and his mother appear to never have gone to Warren County or Highland County with the other Bishirs? They both appear to have remained in Cincinnati, although we can find no record of them in any census. Was there a separation between Christopher Sr. and Hannah?

      “Elihu Park s/o William Park, rev war vet, lived in Monaghan, York Co., Pa. He was born about 1780 somewhere between Chester Co. and York county Pa. He married Elspy Lamon. They are both buried
      at the Monaghan Cemetery near Dillsburg, York, Co Pa. There is a Peter Lamon also living in Monaghan twp at the same time, could he be a brother to Elspy. Elspy is of Irish and Welsh extraction. The Irish is probably Scots-Irish and her name could possibly be Elizabeth of Alsbeth, as Elspy is a common Scottish nickname for Elizabeth.”

      Post by Emalu Dunlop Hart, March 26, 2002, genealogy.com:
      “Sorry, my John Lamon was born c 1750, he died about 1820 in Cumberland County Pa. His son Peter, and daughter Alsbeth, inherited all his assets. I think this might be the Peter Lamon living in Dillsburg, [Monaghan Twp.] York Co., Pa in 1800. An Elspy Lamon wife of Elihu Park is living in Monaghan, next to Dillsburg, in that time period.”

      Peter Lamon appears in Monaghan Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania in the 1798 tax lists. There is a Peter Leamon in the 1800 Pennsylvania, Septennial Census in Monaghan Twp., York Co. and in 1807 as Peter Lammon. He is listed as a distiller in 1800.

      There is a John Lemmon in Monaghan Twp in 1800. John is 26-44 and has a wife and an older woman living with them. They also have a little girl under 10.

      There is a Philip Lemon in Monaghan Twp in 1800. Male and Female 26-44 and one female under 10.
