  1. My son and I have purchased land in Decatur township, Mifflin county owned by the Jo Hannns Ritter, Ulsh family. We are trying to figure out the exact spot where they lived on our preoperty and surrounding properties. There are still sites that are existing that may have been a cabin. Neighbor has an old barn which has carved A S Ulsh 1844. He is buried in Wagner church cemetary died 1815. This barn was used to rest and trade horses for a stage coach run.We are trying to figure out how Steininger fits and also a Ruebon Smith.
    WQe are the first to inhabit the property since Smith or Steininger. Thank you.
