Ray Noftsger, formerly of Washington, D.C., a valuable researcher for the Nafz—
. ger Heritage News is now living in Chieti, Italy. He will be living there for a year.
At Grafton, we will miss his frequent telephone calls and letters usually to announce some important find on our herit age,. Prior to his departure he was quick to point out that he expects to continue his search in Europe. He plans to study and search for records in Switzerland and Germany. Ray is an excellent researcher so we are fortunate to have such a fine representative of the Nafzger clan look ing for information on our heritage in Europe
We are in receipt of a nice, long letter from Margaret Nofsiger Dotzler of Suniner town, Tennessee She is a descendant of Valentine Nafzi who emigrated to the U.S. in 1831 and settled in Wayne County, Ohio. She writes that Lyn Franklin Nofziger, President Reagan long time close aide is her father’s younger brother. The name of her father is James. His parents ere Bennett and Rosalyn Curran Nofziger. n had brothers, Jay and Ed. Ed is a car toonist from New York and living in Laguna Beach, California number of our readers have sent cartoons created by Ed to the Heritage News over the past decade)
It has been a busy sunifler for Nafzgers working on the improvement of information of the Nafzger heritage. We know of at least four family reunions that were held in different sections of the United States. We attended two of them — The Hopedale Nafziger family reunion held at Morton, Illinois and the Christian Nafziger clan meeting at Archbold, Ohio
At the Hopedale reunion, general agree ment was reached on the idea of trying to get a more formal publication of the fam ily line printed during the next year. Many members of the family line indicated a willingness to update the material by adding the latest births, marriages and deaths to the records Carroll Nafziger of 507 S. Main Street, Minier, Illinois, 61759 is leading the drive to bring all aspects of the record of this family line to present day. .Persons interested in assisting Carroll with the work should contact him. In addition, we are working on obtaining more records of Christian Nafziger,head of the clan and the one who came to the U.S. from the Castle Weilbach in Germany We hope some of our German friends will uncover more detail on this family when they lived in Germany.
At the reunion in Archbold, we dis cussed with officers of the group the idea of updating all three lines that settled in Fulton County, Ohio, completing wall charts on each line and putting them on display at a local bank in the center of town a week prior to the reunion next year.
In this manner, people could view the charts and study their heritage prior to actual reunion. We are especially inter ested in adding all of the latest informa tion to the Christian Nafziger family line who settled in the area in 1837. In add tion, Johannes Nofziger settled there in 1847 and children of Valentine Nafziqer, who came to the US, in 1831, settled in the county when the c

add to our heritage information.
It would appear that we have the services of some rather talened individual such as Carroll, Ray and Matthtas plus a number of persons from several Nafzger family lines that will be devoting a great deal of time and energy to finding out more about our heritage. It makes for a great genealogical team. Yes, we think it Is going to be a great year for Nafzger heritage.
Matthias Otte arrived from Plettenberg, West Germany on schedule on July 7, 1982 for his six week visit in the United States. He returned to the Cleveland airport on August 18th after visiting a family reunion, making side trips to Portland, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, North Manchester and a host of other mid western comunitles for visits with friends of his family and other- Nafziger relatives, During some of the visits, he had an opportunity to meet some direct relatives of his Nafziger family line.
In addition, he made a rather complete tour of Washington, D. C. In which he had an opportunity to observe our government in action at the Capitol Building. He visited the Lewis Research Center of NASA at Cleveland other points of interest In a number of states in which he traveled. Also, he appeared on a local radio station twice, appeared on a local television channel and was featured in a local newspaper story. Also, he was an active participant In the political campaign of several candadates for public office. All in all, the trip went about as planned
We want to thank all the Nafzgers in the U.S. who helped make his trip a success. He was unable to visit all the persons who had extended an Invitation to him due to the limited amount of money that could be spent on airfare in the U But we do appreciate the many unusued invitations and regret that it was not possible to make all of the side trips

Our thanks to Candy Brown of Columbus, Ohio for her nice letter. We were sorry to learn of her accidents and hope that she is recovering nicely. Candy tells us that she will be sending us some information on her heritage that connects to the Nafzgers.
For a number of years, we have been puzzled by the listing of a Martin Nafzger who married Elizabeth Moyer. Elizabeth was born in 1743. Thus, Martin must have been one of the early Nafzgers coming to the United States,, However, were unable to connect any of the early Nafzger ancestors to his line. We kept looking for some descendants. Ray Noftsger resolved the problem by uncovering a document in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It relates to the settlement of the estate of Henry Meyer of Middletown, Pennsylvania. who died in 1801 The document clearly lists Elizabeth Meyer, intermarried of Martin Nafzger, Henry and George Meyer, all of the Conton of Basel, Switzerland. They were children of Henry, but all lived in Switzerland and not in the United States as some records seem to indicate. Thus, this line represents a Nafzger who remained in Swit zerland although his name appears in some U.S. Genealogical records. Another interest ing note is that Jacob Keim and Henry Nafzger are administrators of the Meyer estate. We can speculate that this Henry Nafzger was a grandson of Jacob Nafzger who emigrated to the U in 1750. If this is true, then one can again connect the Jacob Nafzger line to families in Switzerland although we lack definite documentation
Our thanks to Rosemary Nosker Bryan of Basking Ridge, New Jersey for her nice letter.
Certificate (or Discharge)
The undersigned administration of the estate attests hereby that Christian Nafziger, who wants to emigrate to America, was employed as curator of funds for nine years by the estate named and distinguished himself by faithfulness, diligence, and ethical conduct; there stands no obstacle ininediately in the way of his emigration with his family from this place.
Castle Weilbach on4 May 1840, Belonging to the Count of Spretgsche. Administration Weilbach
The following certificate (or discharge) was signed by Christian Nafziger prior to his departure for the United States. We know that this Christian Nafziger came to America and settled in Hopedale, Illinois, We are trying to secure more data on this family from the German records, It has been suggested by different individuals who have studied the documents and map, that Count Sprety’s estate and that Castle Weilbach is located near Reinheim, Germany. Reinheim would seem to be in Sprety, a part of the district e Dieburg in the Grand Duchy of Hesse,
We hope our German friends will do a little genealogical work in their home country and help us to determine more about the location Df Weilbach and per haps uncover information the Christian Nafziger family who lived and worked at this Castle Weilbach and for the County Sprety’s estate, Please write if you have any information for us.
