GODFREY posted by Ted Fiedler on Sunday, September 1, 2002

I am researching the family of George GODFREY who resided at 312 McPherson Ave in Lima sometime around 1900. I have several photos and little else to go on other than the fact that Mrs. Godfrey was my Grandmothers 2nd cousin. She (Mrs. Godfrey) had 3 sisters and to make matters worse, the link appears to be maternal although that is not positive. One of the photos refers to a son Charles. I know that this is a slim lead, but I would appreciate ANY information. I would be happy to share the referenced photos with any Godfrey (Lima/Allen/Ohio) decendants.

BLAIR, FREDERICK, HOLMAN posted by Don Coolidge on Wednesday, September 25, 2002

I'm looking for information on William HOLMAN (Feb. 4, 1803-Mar. 25, 1855) and his wife Sarah (Apr. 15, 1803-July 15, 1887). I believe that Sarah's maiden name was FREDERICK and that she and William lived in Ross County, OH, before settling in Allen County. I don't know when they moved to Allen County, but I know it was before 1850 as they were listed in as residents of Allen County in the census. I also believe that they were the parents of Frances "Fanny" HOLMAN (Feb. 26, 1840-Jan. 10, 1887) who married John Arthur BLAIR (Aug. 12, 1832-Jun. 7, 1915) on Apr. 12, 1857 in Allen County. Any info on this family would be greatly appreciated, but I am particularly interested in locating William's will. Thank you so much for your time.
