MCCLINTOCK, WARD posted by Muriel J Sherlock on Monday, October 18, 1999

Can anyone help me find information on James MCCLINTOCK , who lived at 1336 Stewart Road, Lima. Ohio 45801 in 1972. He was related to the McClintock's of Auglaize Co., his great great grandfather being Charles McClintock who emigrated from Co. Donegal, Ireland in 1831. His wife is Norma Jean (WARD) and in 1972 he had a son Roger aged 21; Daughter Gloria aged 20; daughter Gloria aged 18. I tried to make contact with him about 12 or 15 years ago but my letter came back 'unknown' I would imagine he worshipped somewhere close to his home, so perhaps someone can give me a list of Churches/ Clergy/ Addresses close to Stewart Road.

I am still researching my BAILEY, KIRACOFE and ROCKHILL line. I still cannot find George Bailey's parents from VA, He moved to Allen County with wife Elizabeth nee Kiracofe from Augusta County, VA. after 1860 I have found listings for Kiracofe so I feel someone may know what I need to finish family line. I have lots on Rockhills so please get in touch with me. I am also researching my GOLDSMITH line. I know my great grandmother Lydia Goldsmith married a Samuel BURKHOLDER after her husband died in Fulton, County. Does anyone know where they are buried. I think it is somewhere close to Beaverdam or Bluffton.
