      1. The following notes are from 23 Feb 2004 Rootsweb.com Worldconnect database ":480580" by Donna Shell with email dani5322@netzero.net:
      a. Paper on "John & Ludwig Wampler, Sons of the Immigrant Christian Wampler (1718-1765), with Notes on William Wampler (1813-1886)" by Roy H. Wampler, dtd. 15 July 1988. Pg. 28. [Kerry's note: I reviewed this book at FHL in Salt Lake City - FHL book 929.273 W181wr.] b. A.k.a. Senseney, Sanchwich.

      2. Many databases list her maiden name as Senseney which is actually the surname of her first husband. The book, "Wamplers in America," by G. M. Shouse - 929.273, W181 -sh, pg. 6 indicates a Mary Sanchwick Susseny without substantiation; however, this same source places Catherine Ingler as a the second wife which is of course wrong. I use Sanchwick for a maiden name but without confidence until further information can be found.

      BIOGRAPHY:
      1. FHL 929.273 book "A Wampler Family History," by Roy H. Wampler, 1999, pp. 30, 47-50:
      a. "David Wampler, b. 1765, PA; d. 25 Mar 1842 (at age 77), Montgomery Co., OH; bur. at Dunkard Cem., Taylorsburg, Randolph Twp., Montgomery Co., OH. mar. (1) MD, Catherine Englar, b. 27 Jul 1763, PA, d. 14 Jan 1824, MD; bur. at Ambrose-Leatherman Cemetery, near Myersville, MD.; md. (2) 1824, Montgomery Co., Oh, Mary ( - -) Senseney, d. 9 Sep 1848, Montgomery Co., OH; bur. at Fort McKinley Cemetery, Madison Twp., Montgomery Co., OH. David Wampler lived in Maryland until 1824 when he moved to near Dayton, Montgomery County, OH. David's first wife, Catherine, was the eldest dau. of Philip Englar (1736-1817) and his wife Margaret Holverstot (1742-1819), natives of Europe who settled in Maryland in 1764. David's second wife, Mary, was the widow of Isaac Senseney (ca. 1766-1804) of Carroll (then Frederick) Conty, Md. Isaac and Mary Senseney were the parents of five children: John and Isaac Senseney, Mary who married Jacob Cook, Elisabeth who married George Winter, and Catherine who married George McGee. David Wampler bought a tract of land in Frederick County, MD, in 1793, and his name appears in other Frederick Co. land records up to 1822. Tax assessment records of 1798 show that he then owned land in present-day Carroll (then Frederick) County. When he sold a tract called 'The Range' on Little Pipe Creek, near New Windsor, on 5 Apr 1822, his wife Catherine relinquished her right of dower. He had purchased this tract in 1817 from the heirs of Isaac Senseney among whom was Isaac's widow Mary. The same Mary Senseney would later become David's second wife. A history of the Englar family states that "David Wampler was deacon of Pipe Creek (church) before he moved to Ohio in 1826 (sic)." The German Baptist, or Dunkard, church known as Pipe Creek (organized in 1758) was located close to Little Pipe Creek, between New Windsor and Uniontown. In 1824 David and Catherine Wampler were living in the Middletown Valley of Frederick County, MD. A month after Catherine died, David had a public sale of his livestock and farming utensils, and soon afterward he moved to Montgomery County, Ohio. His marriage to Mary Senseney took place in Ohio later in 1824. He was listed as a taxpayer in Montgomery County, Ohio, in 1825. His will written 13 Aug 1841 and recorded in Montgomery County, Ohio, in April 1842, made bequests to his wife Mary, his granddaughter Margaret Wampler of Montgomery Co., OH (dau. of Samuel Wampler, deceased); his granddaughter Amanda Wampler of Montgomery Co., OH (dau. of Daniel Wampler, deceased); and granddaughters Julia Ann Johnson and Ann Maria Brown of Frederick County, MD; he stated that he had already given his son Philip Wampler by way of advancement his full share of the estate. The will of Mary Wampler, David's widow, was recorded in 1848. She left her estate to her five children by Isaac Senseney, and she made a conditional bequest to a granddaughter, Eliza Cook. Her son, Isaac Senseney, was named to be her executor."
      b. Issue by Catherine (sequence unknown):
      i. Phillip E. Wampler, b. 10 Jan 1790, MD; d. 1 May 1878, Montgomery Co., OH; bur. at Ft. McKinley Cem., Madison Township, Montgomery Co., OH., md. 27 Apr 1815, Baltimore Co., MD, Catherine Royer, b. 21 Feb 1797; d. 28 Sep 1867, Montgomery Co., OH; bur. at same cemetery; dau. of Peter Royer (1775-1842) and his wife Anna Roop (ca. 1775-1858) of Carroll Co., MD. Philip was an elder of the German Baptist (Dunkard) church. In 1825 or 1826 he and his family moved from Carroll (then Frederick) County,MD, to Montgomery Co., Ohio. [The book has a transcription of an 1830 letter from Catherine Royer Wampler to her mother with many relatives listed including her brother-in-law: "Daniel Wampler is in very poor state of health since last summer and its very doubty if he will recover." The book also lists issue of 12 children and 112 grandchildren of this couple.
      ii. Samuel Wampler, d. by 1841, md. 1824, Montgomery Co., OH, Mary Priddy. The 1830 census of Ohio lists a Widow Wampler in Jefferson Twp., Montgomery County. Probably this was the widow of Samuel Wampler. The book also lists one child of this marriage.
      iii. Daniel Wampler died between 1830 and 1841., md. 29 Jan 1824, Frederick Co., MD, Mary Brown. Moved to Montgomery Co., OH, by 1830. The book also lists one child of this marriage.
