Note: [MyNote: I have "thrown together" all of the Wiseman's in Switzerland County under the "umbrella" of Jacob and Elizabeth Weisman so that there could be a "centralized" point for storing information on all of these people. It is NOT my intent to state that Christian is the son of Jacob and Elizabeth but rather that there is likely some kind of relationship between them all. They are lumped together here for the convenience of this researcher.]
