Anna Maria SCHWANGER, 4/2/1902 in Sandusky Emanual Luthern Church. Have identified Peter G. Johannsen b. 9/21/1843 as his father and Botilda ? as his mother. she was born 7/5/1848 and died 4/24/1928. August's brothers were Christ V. Johannsen, b. 1876 died 1958; Martin Johannsen b. 1879, died 1894 and Hanry Johannsen who married Agatha VonEitzen. Have talked briefly over the phone with an elderly cousin in Huron County, but have not been able to visit with her (health problems). She made a comment that Mason road cemetery could answer some questions. The only cemetery that I could find on Mason road is Sweet's Cemetery and none of those names seem to fit. Have Oakland Cemetery information, but can't find much else. Is anyone researching this name? Is the Sandusky library open on sundays? Is there another place in Sandusky where historical records are kept. Been to OGS, Mansfield last Saturday and pretty much exhausted their materials.
Thanks for your help.

Date posted: Tuesday, December 8, 1998

I have another puzzle in my family tree and wonder if anyone can help?

In the 1870 census on Groton Twp. their is a John Wheat listed. Under his name are a couple of children with last names being different. One of those children is my G-G-Grandmother, Gertrude Sprauge. At the time John is in his thirties.
Does anyone have information on this John Wheat?

When I was growing up I was told that Gertrude was a Wheat and that she was adopted because she was half Indian and half white.But I found out that she was a Sprague and her parents were Ezra and Susan (Baker) Sprague. They came from around Sandusky. I can't find any anything on them as of yet. The only information I have on them is from the death certificate of Gertrude. That information was supplied by her daughter,Natalie White.

Thanks for any help in advance,
Leora

Surnames: DEELEY, WILSON
Researcher: Peggy Lowrie
Email: lowrie@texinet.net
Date posted: Thursday, December 31, 1998

William Eugene DEELEY was my great grandfather. He was born c. 1846. He married Eleanor Virginia WILSON who was from Neshoba County, Mississippi. The Texas census shows the family to be living in Washington County, Texas, in 1880. This census indicates that his father was born in Ohio. It also shows the oldest son, Samuel Eugene, b. 1871 in Austin County, Texas. We have not been able to trace William Eugene back any further than this date.

This family later moved to Comanche County, Texas, where he died in November, 1889. I also located an orbituary about a John Edward Deeley - Comanche County, Texas- dated May 9, 1913. It states that he was reared in Canton, Ohio. I do not know if John Deeley and my William Deeley were related but thought there might be some connection.

We are looking for any connections to our William Eugene Deeley which would give us further information about him. William is really a stubborn fellow as we have continued to hit brick walls in our search.

Thanks for your reply.
