" Daniel GEBHART was born in Berks County, Pennsylvania, in 1798, and
was brought here by his parents, John GEBHART and Catherine GESAMON, in
1810. They got aboard a flat-boat at Pittsburg, and came down the Ohio
River, it being so low that they would run on sand-bar occasionally.
They finally arrived at Cincinnati, however. From there they footed it
all the way to Middletown, where Mr. GEBHART remained until the day of
his death. John GEBHART was drafted in the War of 1812, and served as a
private for two years. He took the cold plague and was brought home,
but recovered again."
