Selected Families and Individuals


Faust Lorei

There were three Lori/Lorey/Lohrey families in early Fulda Ohio:
Faust Lorei -- 1805 - 1869
Nicholas Lorey -- 1823 - 1887
John Lorey -- c, 1835 - c. 1863
The relationship (if any) between these three men is not known. The age difference between Faust and John is too great for them to have been born to the same woman.

According to Joann Cummings, Faust Lorei emmigrated from Giesel, Hesse, Germany in 1837.

Marriage data for Faust Lori is unclear. Delores Snider indicates that Faust Lori married Elizabeth Betts on 13 Nov 1848 in St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Fulda, OH. However, the children were born in 1834, 1840, and 1844, well before the marriage. The couple could not have been married at St. Marys much earlier than 1848, because church records begin in 1847. Possible explanations are that Faust and Elizabeth had a common-law marriage prior to 1848, or that the children belong to a prior unrecorded marriage of one of the parents.

At the time of the 1840 census, Faust Lory lived in Wheeling, Virginia. (West Virginia did not become a state until 1863.) The 1840 census does not give the names of individual household members, only their sex and age. Living in the Faust home were:
one male, under 5 (?)
one male 5 - 10 (Wendelin)
one male 30 - 40 (Faust)
one female 30 - 40 (his wife)
The census date in 1840 was June 1. Barbara Lori was born on 7 Mar 1840. She should be included in the census. The presence of a male child under the age of 5, and the absence of infant Barbara Lori raise some questions. Possible explanations are:
1) The census-taker incorrectly recorded Barbara as male instead of female.
2) Barbara's date (from Snider) is incorrect... she was born after Jun 1840, and she had a brother born between 1835 and 1840.

In 1850, 44 year old German-born farmer Faust Lorie lived in Enoch Twp., Monroe County, Ohio with his wife Elizabeth (44) and three children: Wendell (15), Barbary (8), and Mary (6). The children were all born in Virginia. The two older children attended school. Adjacent farms in the census belonged to Levi Duvall and John Gerst.

Surname is spelled Lohrey in the Noble County death record.
