ELMER HUSTON MILLER (descendant of Capt. John Baker), born April 4, 1876, in Bellaire, Ohio, married BERTHA MILDRED BOWEN, born Oct. 5, 1889, in Fly, Ohio. I seek the marriage date for the couple, whom I believe married in 1909 or 1910 in Bellaire. I also seek her birth parents' and sibling (two sets of twins, plus two step-sisters) information. The birth mother died of Typhoid fever while carrying a third set of twins. Thus, I also am interested in the family's burial: the birth mother possibly in Fly, Ohio, and the birth father possibly in Bellaire, Ohio.

MACLAIN, MCCLAIN, PETERS posted by Kathleen McClain Williams on Thursday, August 23, 2001

Looking for information on any relatives of my grandfather Charles Chester McClain, born 4/13/1880 in Bellaire Ohio. His father was Charles McClain or MacLain born in Beragh, Tyrone County Ireland in 1855 or 56. His mother was Elizabeth Virginia Peters perhaps of Wheeling WV since she died in there in 1880. We believe that Charles had several siblings but do not know their names, gender or relative ages. My grandfather may have been one of the younger children. He came out to California and worked for the Union Pacific railroad for nearly 60 years. He died at age 89 in Palo Alto, California.

DAMMON, DAMON, DEMING, DEMMING posted by Margie Hinton on Thursday, August 23, 2001

DAMON/DAMMON/DEMMING/DEMING My Rufus Deming, as he finally came to accept the phonetic spelling, was married in Belmont County on 14 February 1821 to Mary Farra (Farrah in the record). He married a second time in Athens County in 1829 so I am assuming that Mary Farra Demming/Deming must have died before then. Does anyone have any idea where I can look to find her? I know there were no records of deaths then, but I am still curious. I am descended through their daughter, Esther Deming Cobb who settled in Lake County, California. Please contact me with any clues. Thank you. Margie
