Johan Adam's father's name, Daniel, is known only from the sexton's record at Hill Church (Berks County) which records the name on Johan Adam's death and burial record. His daughter, Catharine had married Captain Lewis Sensendorfer and moved to Berkeley County in 1799. He is buried in the cemetery at the Hill Church, but the site of the grave is unknown, having been lost over the years. All of Nicholas' sons married women from Berkeley County. In the Familiennamenbuch der Schweiz, I find that the Imboden surname (pre-1800) was found in the following locations: Canton Communities Bern Ringgenberg, Unterseen Nidwalden Stans Valais Ausserberg, Embd, Hohtenn, Niedergesteln, St. I visited the cemetery in the summer of 1994 and took some pictures. The most commonly found spelling of the name as determined by the line which descended from each son is used. This land included that on which the Hocking County Fairgrounds once stood and on which the large General Electric plant is now located. Nicholas Inbody and his wife, Ann Margaret, are buried in the old Bright cemetery north of Logan, Ohio.

She was born May 17, 1743, married 1765, and lived in holy wedlock over 60 years. Other versions of the name appear to be variations on that, e.g., Impotty, Imbotty, etc. The name was reported in a marriage record of 1770 as Embody. Child of A: Nicholas served in the Revolutionary War under Captain Lentz in 17 as part of the 3rd Co., 1st Battalion, Berks County Militia. It is not too far to reach to understand how Inbody became the standard for the family name. (The discrepancy of a death in 1769 and a marriage in 1770 is unresolved.) 4. In the early 1800s, Nicholas and his family moved from Berks County PA to Berkeley County, Virginia (now West Virginia), near Martinsburg. Given the location of his daughter's grave (next to the church building) his is likely nearby. Later, all except Catherine moved to Ohio, settling in what is now Logan in Hocking County.


There are several unreadable red sandstone grave markers as well as sites which are probably graves but which are no longer marked. Note that the surnames of his children are changed. He was granted one-half section of Section 1, Township 14, rnage 17, 361.85 acres of land.
