 THE FAMILY OF MARTIN EISENBARGER ORIGINATED IN LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA.  THE 1850 CENSUS FOR LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA LISTS THE FOLLOWING:

  According to the obituary of Susan (Eisenbarger) Funk the family removed itself to Wayne County, Indiana in 1852.  It appears that this family moved to Harrison County, Missouri sometime after August 19,1860. I arrive at that date because the youngest son Adam is listed as having been born August 19, 1860 in Terrytown, Indiana. We do know that the 1870 Census list Martin and Martha Eissenberger(sp) in Harrison County, Missouri along with some of their children. We also note that the spelling of the name Eisenbarger in the Pennsylvania census is [Isenberger].  This could have been just a census takers error.
