A 1902 county history says that he came with his brother George in 1834 (landing April 13 in Baltimore) and that he was a wagonmaker by trade. His 80 acres, purchased in 1834, are in what became the Jefferson Township though at the time was part of the larger Jackson Township. The history attests that his wife was "an old German sweet heart." I trust the claim that she was the Maria Elisabeth Baetzel born in Elsoff in 1816. He was later engaged in beer brewing and butchering. The children seemed to have taken the spelling Gearhart. There may have been additional children but these seven are the only ones I can document.

A centennial biographical history of Crawford County, Ohio, 1902.

Gerhardt Johann Jost [Male] b. 27 JUL 1793 Elsoff - d. 11 FEB 1864 Crawford County, Ohio

Known as Joseph in the U.S. He purchased land in Jackson Township (Range 21-W, Section 14) in 1834. The information we have on his family is confusing. It is quite certain that he sailed to the US in 1834 and came directly from Baltimore to Crawford County. Yet various records show the son, John Jacob, being born in Pennsylvania in 1831. The simplest explanation would be that the boy was Catherine's child from an earlier marriage.

It is also possible that Joseph had preceded the rest of the family to America (viz. Pennsylvania), married and had a child, returned to Germany to fetch his whole family for settlement in Ohio. Catherine Smith/Schmidt in fact came from a family of earlier emigrants from Wittgenstein, so the latter account is at least plausible. However, an exhaustive inventory of Wittgenstein emigrants shows no trace of Joseph before 1834, so I am going with first hypothesis (that the son was Catherine's).
