Johan Elias Ours (Auer)1

M, b. between 1700 and 1720, d. between 1788 and 1790
     Johan Elias Ours (Auer) was born between 1700 and 1720 in Singen, Baden-Durlach, Germany.2,3 He married Catherine Barbara Matthias on 21 January 1738 in Singen, Baden-Durlach, Germany.1,3 Johan Elias Ours (Auer) died between 1788 and 1790 in Hardy, (West) Virginia.4

Children of Johan Elias Ours (Auer) and Catherine Barbara Matthias

     In West Virginia and neighboring states, the Ours surname begins with the arrival of the ship Edinburg in Philadelphia 14 Sept. 1753 [Captained by James Russell]. "Johannes Awer" and other Germans with names familiar in the South Branch entered the colony. Johann Auer (pronounced Our), wife and child were given permission that year to leave the principality of Baden-Durlach. Their village, Singen, is by the Black Forest and near Karsruhe. It typically required 3-5 months to complete a journey down the Rhine river to Rotterdam and an arduous Atlantic crossing aboard a crowded tiny sailing vessel.
Johann Elias Auer married Catharina Barbara Matthias 21 Jan. 1738 in Singen. A son, Johannes Auer, was born and baptized Nov. 27, 1739. Today, as then, the Lutheran Church stands on a rise above the community which, itself, has not changed greatly over the years. Why leave Singen to live in the frontier wilderness of Virginia? Severe economic conditions and lack of opportunity were surely motives. "By 1755 they had traveled up the Shenandoah and crossed the mountains, perhaps via Brock's Gap, to settle at the junction of North and South Mill Creeks. A son, "Sigmon" was born that year in "Hampshire" County.
John Our and family lived thru the dangerous times of the French and Indian Wars on their South Branch Manor leasehold John died 1788-1790. According to the records of the old" German" North Mill Creek Church, "Catherine Ours" (b. 1716) wife of John O. died Feb. 2, 1802. Most likely they were buried in the cemetery next to the Brake Church in the row of unmarked graves adjacent to Sigmon and his family.
John Godfrey Our, who had traveled with them from Singen, was restless and over the years lived in Hardy, Rockingham, Monongalia and Harrison counties. He married Anna Maria "Weatherholt" of Rockingham, 12 Jan. 1776. Her family lived up in Brock's Gap. Their children included Nicholas, John, Henry and Sarah. The boys may have been born in Rockingham or Hardy, but the family was living near Buckhannon in 1795 when Indians massacred the Bozarth family. John and Henry served with the militia during the war of 1812. Nicholas and Henry resided near Buckhannon. Sarah lived in Mason Co. and John crossed the Ohio into Meigs Co. Godfrey and Anna Maria probably remained near Buckhannon. John Godfrey's death was after July 1801 and Anna Maria about 1810.
In 1780 Sigmon Our married Mary Simon. Their children included Catherine, Ann Maria, Elizabeth, Eve, Sarah, Jacob, Susanna, Solomon, John, Andrew and Jonathon. Were there others? Sigmon served with the militia during the Revolutionary War. His grave in the old North Mill Creek Church Cemetery is marked with a very worn stone (5 Sep. 1844). A marker recognizing his military service was dedicated in 1988. Mary (d. about 1854), his wife, was living with Jonathon in 1850. Sarah married William Weese. His family was probably also from the area near Singen. Jacob traveled to Harrison Co. and in 1816 married Nancy Crislip. The younger brothers puchased land above Rough Run (Conway Ours' place) in 1835. Solomon (d before 1870) married Sallie George and Johathon (d 190 1) Catherine Rice. . Both families remained on this tract. John (d 1864 in a Home Guard Skirmish \\ith McNeills's Rangers at Johnson Run) had relocated to North Mill Creek and Married Elizabeth Kimmel, possibly his second wife. Andrew (d 1885) moved to the Hopeville/Smoke Hole Cavern area. He married Elizabeth Skidmore and later Mary 1. Kimble.
There are many spellings of the family and individual names. Our in all it's variations appears as late as 1850. Yet Ours is noted early, appears increasingly in the records and becomes the accepted name later in the 1800s. Ours families living near Petersburg descend from John Our but the connections for many are not yet established. Surely John and Catherine had other children.
Submitted by Elliott Ours, Shepherdstown, WV.2,5 Johan Elias Ours (Auer) was also known as Johannes Awer.2 According to "Immigrants in Pennsylvania from 1727 to 1776", he went to Pennsylvania.6 Johan Elias Auer, aka Johannes Auer, took the Oath of Allegiance in Rotterdam, Germany, on September 14, 1758.5
