Onstott Family History

The Onstott Family



This information comes from my Great Uncle Leslie Breeding, who passed 
away last year.  Thank you so much Uncle Leslie.

It is believed that all the Onstotts in the country can trace their 
families to George Onstott (Johann George Anstott).  George was the 
fouth of nine children born to the Johann Peter Anstade family in Bad 
Deurkheim, Pfalz, Bavaria and was christened in 1718.  George Onstott 
arrived in this country on the ship Two Brothers from Rotterdam on 13 
October, 1747.  He likely married in Bavaria.  George and his wife Ann 
Mary had the following children: Henry, Anna Marie, Margaret, john, 
George, Nicholas and Magdalena.  George Onstott died in Frederick 
County, Maryland in 1778.  The Onstotts moved thru Pennsylvania, 
Virginia, Tennessee and then Illinois.  It is known that David 
Onstott, grandson of George, and son of Nicholas, lived at Sangamon 
County, Illinois.  Davidís uncle Henry Onstott also lived in Illinois; 
probably other Onstotts lived there too.  David and Peggy Smick 
Onstott had the following children:  Elmira, Eliza, David, and Lucy.  
The David Onstott family moved to Taney County, Missouri before 1843 
since their daughter Eliza Onstott married my great great great 
grandfather James Coffee Turnbo in Taney County Missouri by that 
year.  Several branches of the family tell a story that is in general 
agreement.  To wit, Abraham Lincoln, long before he was in the public 
eye, made a trip to the Ozarks on horseback and visited his former 
neighbors, the Onstotts.
