NAME: Don & Mary Saban EMAIL:dsaban@trib.com SURNAMES: FICKLE, MADDEN, WILSON DATE: Wednesday, August 19, 1998 QRYTEXT:Looking for information on Mary FICKLE. Here is her history:

Parents John FICKLE and Rachel ?
1st marriage - James WILSON who died on a steamboat accident 1850 supposedly is buried in Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio.
Child of Mary and James: Joshua WILSON, born August 1850
2nd marriage - John H MADDEN, 1857 in Putnam County, they moved to Iowa. They had Mary E., Emma E., Rachael, Lydia. One of these girls was known as Lizzie or there was a fifth daughter.

The biography of John H. MADDEN written in 1881 in Iowa says Mary's parents John and Rachel FICKLE were from Perry County, Ohio. I can find FICKLE in Perry County but can't seem to hook up with Mary. The LDS library shows a John FICKLE and Rachel ? in Ohio, with three children -- Eli (1831), Mary (1833), Joshua (1835) and John (1837). If this is our Mary, she was only 17 when she had Joshua WILSON and our family bible says there was an older WILSON brother of Joshua's who went off to Civil War and never returned.

Any help someone can give would certainly be greatly appreciated.

Mary Fickle Wilson Madden died October 16, 1898 in Mills County, Iowa. I am a descendent of Joshua WILSON (g.g. grandfather). We have been hitting a brick wall on James WILSON and Mary FICKLE for far too many years.

Ohio in 1892 to have the land of Charles BENNETT from Jay Co Indiana sold at public auction. Charles bought the Putnam Co land in 1837 when he was living in Wayne Co. Ohio. He died in 1856 in Jay Co. Indiana. This land was not sold until a public auction in 1892 according to the records at Putnam Co. Ohio courthouse. At that time the following people were present, Alexander BENNETT, Charles Henry BENNETT, Catherine M. RODGERS, Harriet R. SWIHART, and Sarah BURNS. I don't know where these people were living. I would guess they lived in Indiana or Ohio. Alexander may be the s/o Joseph and Catherine (JOHNSON) BENNETT of Mercer Co Ohio and a grandson of Charles BENNETT. The others listed may be the children of Alexander.

I know Charles and Phoebe had 5 children: Joseph and John who lived in Mercer Co. Ohio. Sarah (md Joseph Frank), Emeline (md Benjamin R. Johnson) & Washington who died in the war. The latter 3 lived in Wisconsin.

If anyone can shed some light on any of these families...I would appreciate it.

I'm looking for info on the Phenix family. My gr gr grandmother was Martha Ella PHENIX b. 1861 in Weston township. Her father, according to the lead I got, was Reuben, mother Anna DIAMOND. They were in the OH 1860 census, but by 1879, Martha and her brother Levi were in Knoxville IA, where she met her future husband, Nathaniel Macomb. Levi and Martha both married Macombs, Levi marrying Martha Macomb. They all eloped to Stone Co. MO, because the Macomb family disowned Nathaniel for marrying a "black" woman.

Another rumor is that her father may have invented the "Toledo" scale and sold off the rights. I have not been able to find anything on her in Ohio or PA. On Jan 22, 1901 she married my grandfather George Washington SHEETZ, right after he graduated from Drew Theological Seminary as an ordained Methodist minister. I don't even know what state they were married in. I can follow them after that, but can't get a handle at all on the FRENCH family. Anyone know more than me on this ?????

I am researching the surname of MEAD. Jane Cynthia MEAD was born in Luzerne County, PA in 1840, she moved to somewhere in Ohio when she was fifteen (around 1855). I know she was converted in a Free Will Baptist Church somewhere between Ohio and the move to Illinois. She later joined the M.E. Church (Methodist Evangelical) because she could not find a Baptist Church to attend.

Is there an 1840 or 1850 Census that I might find her listed. Her parents were Joseph and Delita (HINKLEY) MEAD. I would like to find the names of her siblings if at all possible. That might just help me in my search for info on the family as there are so many MEADs and I haven't the foggiest idea of what or who to look for.

I dont have alot but my ggrandfather was Rev. William Frank ODER.(b 12/28/1897 d. 8/3/1979) He told me that his family was from Germany and that they had changed the spelling from ODOR to ODER when the family came to the states. I do not know which generation came over. His father was Frank ODER( no dates) married to Laura HARGRAVE. I found him in the 1900 census with William 2yrs old and another son Luther 2 months old. Laura wasnt mentioned. I know that Grandpa moved to Ohio around 1920 and I am not sure if anyone else went with him. Him and Grandma, Clara Elizabeth RIGGS(b.3/14/1906 d.5/8/1995) lived in Fayette Co most of their lives.

My 3rd name is RIGGS: This is Clara's family. I have her Grandfather Noah RIGGS (b. possibly 1841) married to Martha Washburn (b.4/18/1842 d.5/12/1914). They lived in Adams Co Ohio. They had one son I know for sure and that was Rev. John M. RIGGS (b. 1/25/1878 d.12/19/1962). He was married to Lillie INLOW. They lived in Adams and Fayette Co.'s. There may have been one other son George married to Bertha Thompson. My main problem right now is finding information on Noah. There is a possibility that RIGGS is not the right name. My aunt told me that one of them, Noah or before him, came to the states as an indentured servant. He was treated badly so he ran away and changed his name to RIGGS. I have found alot of information on the INLOW and WASHBURN lines. The person that gave me the INLOW info had all my RIGGS down as HURLEY. I am wondering if maybe that may have been the real name..I have death certificates for John and Martha. I dont know if the story on the name change is true tho. If anyone knows anything on these lines I will forever be your best friend.. :-)

I am not sure what all you could look up but I will give it a shot.

Greene Co. OH: birth/death/marriage? of Jacob L. GREEN
same on Anna E. CLINE.
I dont have the actual dates but they had a son born 1/3/1917 James Wilbur GREEN.

Adams Co:
1. Noah RIGGS aprox birthdate 1841.I know for sure that his wife Martha Ann WASHBURN was born 4/18/1842 d. 5/12/1914. She was widowed at the time of her death so Noah had already died.
One of their sons John RIGGS b. 1/25/1878 d. 12/19/1962 He married Lillie INLOW( b.7/24/1879 d. 3/19/1956) they were married in 1899.
It is very possible that the other son was George RIGGS born 1879.
Married to Bertha THOMPSON. No other info on these two.
I do know a good bit after John and Lillie's marriage.
As far as I know they lived in Adams Co then to Fayette co..At least John and Lillie both died in Fayette Co but Martha was born in Adams co.Oh I do have information on Martha's family also.
I have some others but I will wait to see if I did this right before sending them...

I'm new to this list, but I've been immensely enjoying the postings. Here are my addition:

Children Absolom, Elender (or ELLEN?), Abraham C., Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, Sarah Jane, and George W., William, Fairfield County: BRANDT, Elija (b 1820) his wife KOEGGE, Barbara.

Darke County: WESTFALL, John and Mary. (married July 20, 1800) dau Mary married Abe Nicholas 1827.

Meigs County: ROOT, Stephen (born 1777 Connecticut) wife Mary. Children - Electa Fowler b. in Point Pleasant, Meigs Cty, 10-14-1828 - 3-2-22) (married John Wesley HUDSON 12-27-1853), Perry (b. 1824); Henrietta, Stephen Jr. (b. 1822) Peter (b. 1820 ? Mass.) According to front page Dayton newspaper obit. of Electa, Stephen traveled down the Ohio River on a riverboat with Jesse Root Grant, father of U.S. Grant, and she played with future President as a child.)

Clinton County: HUDSON, John Wesley born 1832, married Electa Root in Meigs Cty, died 12-20-1863 Marietta, GA, prisoner of war camp. He is NOT the son of Selby Hudson of Clinton County who was also John Hudson born in 1832. I have not been able to find anything at all about his history. Their children were Albert W (1-4-1855) (Jennie Siles); George Orville (2-16-1856 - 5-17-1918) married Barbara Ellen Bittner in 1880; and John Walter (12-27-1862 - 1946)

Many of these people ended up in Dayton, where I grew up and consider home even though I now live in Mesa, Arizona..

Now - here's where I need some expert advice. I have a SouthWest Airlines ticket that I need to use before the first of the year. It was suggested to me by a friend that I go to the Salt Lake Genealogy Center. Then, the other day I saw a note about the Ohio library on Velma. Have any of you out there in Cyberland been to both places? As so much of my research deals with Ohio, I'm tempted to go the Ohio route. (As well as the urge to see my ancestral home state again!) But I'm told that Salt Lake has just about everything that the localities have.

I could go on a Thursday night and take Friday and Saturday at the research facilities. As a public school teacher, mother of three children currently in college and one in high school, I'll be on a real shoestring budget. Any suggestions for inexpensive lodgings close to either library? What about potential big event weekends to avoid? (Specifically Ohio State home football games.)

I live very close to an LDS FHC here in Mesa and have gone through the census records, and the few Ohio books, but that's about all. Any suggestions?

Please let me know if there are any family connections with what I've posted as well as any travel/research suggestions.

Vshulman@aol.com ------- NAME: Vicki L. Shulman EMAIL:Vshulman@aol.com SURNAMES: NICHOLAS, WEST DATE: Monday, October 12, 1998 QRYTEXT:Greetings Fellow Ohio-philes!

I'm still looking for information on my NICHOLAS ancestors.
William NICHOLAS and son Abraham came to the Dayton area in the early 1800's.
According to Abraham's death certificate, he was born in Pennsylvania. He married Mary Westfall from Darke County in 1827. Their children were
Absalom W. Nicholas (8-16-1828)
Elender Nicholas (12-20-1830)
Abraham C. Nicholas (5-13-37)
Mary Nicholas (5-13-37)
Joseph W. Nicholas (3-19-40)
Elizabeth Nicholas (12-9-42) (married David WEST)
Sarah Jane Nicholas (6-27-48)

He then married Barbara (don't know what happened to Mary)
son
George Washington Nicholas (11-19-55)

They lived in Jefferson Township, Montg, Cty., and I was able to find them on the early maps of the area.

I have a copy of a letter written by a very elderly family member in 1954 which said that in Williamsburg, VA, in the House of Burgess is a history of the Nicholas family "on paper so worn that it is under glass. No one can handle it. Also - in the State Library at Richmond, Va. is the history of the family that you can read." Does anyone have any idea on how I could check any of this out? I did look in a couple of books that mentioned a Nicholas who was in the House of Burgess.

I've been out of Ohio since 1979 and also miss the fall the most of all. I get all teary just seeing pictures of changing leaves. However, I might get to at least see a little fall as I am going to my daughter's graduation from Army boot camp in Fort Jackson, SC, the end of Oct. I sure hope there are at least a few colored leaves to see there. BTW, are there any of you out there who could give me some advice on things to see for a day or so in Columbia? I will then drive her to AIT at Fort Gordon, GA. (Augusta) Again, any hints as to how I could spent the day and a half from the time I drop her off and when I fly back here? Too bad she didn't go Air Force and get stationed at Wright Patt. Then I'd probably move in with her!

I love reading all the Ohio information, and I am amazed at how often the surnames that I see are ones from children that I grew up with.

Keep up with the Ohio memories. Mine is Leo, the lion "that was never, never real" in front of Steele High School, then moved to the Dayton Art Institute.

Best wishes and good health to all. Having a friend who went to bed in perfectly good health, and then never woke up, has made me remind myself that every day is a gift. I now "think of Jack" when I start to put of until tomorrow what I should do today.

Here's who I am researching:

Charles Wilson POE, married Grace FIELDING in 1906 in Columbus, OH? Charles was son of Ebenezer Wilson POE, born 11/11/1846 in Hancock County, OH and Caroline THOMAS (no records for her yet). Grace FIELDING parents were James FIELDING from Columbus? and Katherine (Kate) Maloney(no records for her). James FIELDING parents were William FIELDING and Anne Croisen?. The story is that William came over from Wales around 1820's, up the river from New Orleans and settled in Findlay, Columbus areas. Became a stone mason and built several churches (name is supposed to be on cornerstones). I have been unable to verify any of the above, except that Ebenezer POE was the State Auditor from 1888-1896. Ebenezer Wilson POE parents are George L. POE and Jane Wilson, married about 1845, probably Hancock Co. They had several more children as well. George L. POE parents are Jacob POE and Nancy McKinnis(McInnis?) married in Champaign County OH probably around 1820 or so. (Thanks to Judy Smith). What I would like to find out is where is Jacob from, parents, etc. Also, since I am unable to go to a library or other research facility (I'm in the Panama Canal Zone right now), can anyone help with some online research? I will be getting the FTM deluxe with its CD's, but at this moment, am lost.

As you can see, I don't have much information on this line. JOHN CARPENTER MURPHEY was my gg-grandfather and I know that he came to CA before 1859 but I don't know if any of his siblings or his parents did. I believe they stayed in Ohio as the only Murpheys (mine) I have found in CA are descendants of John Carpenter. He was born in Columbus, OH so I assume that is where all or most of his siblings were born and where his parents died. If anyone can verify any of this, I sure would appreciate it.

I believe most or all of this family was born and lived in or near Cuyahoga Falls or Akron, Summit Co., OH. These are the notes I have:

SIR GEORGE ALLEN was a member of the Masonic Lodge #1824, the Knight's Temple #1832 and Lodges #643 and #805.

ANDREW HARPER ALLEN came to the United States with his parents when a baby and lived in Ohio. He came to San Francisco, CA to the Redwood City area about 1850 leaving his wife and daughter, Mary, in Ohio. Mary died as a child and 11 years after Andrew came to CA, his wife joined him. In 1863 they settled in Bridgeport, CA.

In 1886 "Andy" could be seen riding in a fine buggy from the carriage works of his brothers' W. A. ALLEN and CO., Akron, Ohio.

OLIVE CYNTHIA YORK had two sisters, MARY YORK m. ? McCOY and the other sister's name is unknown but she married H. B. PEACOCK; and one brother, STEPHEN VAN RENSSELAER YORK. I do not have Olive's parents names but her mother was a niece of GEN. STEPHEN VAN RENSSELAER.

Any help on this line would be appreciated. I'm especially interested in finding out death dates of SIR GEORGE ALLEN and ELIZABETH HARPER ALLEN, and the name's of OLIVE YORK ALLEN's parents.

Thanks a bunch,

Sorry I don't have much else to go on but I just can't seem to find him anywhere. I sure hope you can help me.
I would also like to know where your web page is that every one keeps talking about the obits on. I think it is called Maggie's Archives or some thing like that.

Need some help with locating where my Great Grandmother was born and who her parents were. My Grandmother did a lot of research during the 50's and the only thing that she came up with was:

John H. BROWN b. 20 Feb 1846 Richmond,IN. d. 13 Mar 1923 Richmond,IN. m.23 Apr 1873 Mary E. (Mollie) GILLESPIE b. 18 Mar 1853

Since John was born and died in Richmond, IN. my sister and I have been looking in this area, without any success. My Mother who is 82 told my sister the other day: "When I was about 5 years old (1921)her mother had a fight with my grandfather and packed her up and they went for a visit with John and Mary who at that time were living in Danville, IL. She remembers seeing her Grandfather but not her Grandmother. However, they did visit a lady in a BIG house. They met het in a big RED (?) room and she had beutiful white hair. My mother set on her lap while they visited. My mother says that she has always thought that this was Mary. My mother also told my sister that Mary came from Bellefontaine, Logan Co., OH." Since I have just learned of this posible connection with Ohio this is my first attempt at finding any information.

Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated. I do have lots of information on other lines that I would gladly share with anyone.

I have a mystery in Elizabeth's life - she is listed as head of household in 1840 but they had two children after that.

Persia, Susan Mildred and Lucy were born in Va. The rest in Ohio.

Only one son married -Thomas -to Nancy Elliot

Persia m.(1843) and Lucy both married Howlands - I suspect they moved to Columbus.
Harriet m. Chas. Wilkins
Misouri m. George Dailey
Belle Therese m. George Recob

Susan Mildred m. Jonathan Reel (1845)- a wheelwright, Eliz & Achilles two youngest sons, John and William lived with the Reels when the mother died by 1850. I don't know about Achilles - perhaps they both died in a flu epidemic in the late 40's.

My first request is for help with HAZELBAKER. My maiden name is HAZELBAKER and I understand that it originates in the southern part of Ohio. Many of my relatives are located in the Portsmouth, Otway, and Brush Creek Township areas. My grandfather was Elvin Collins HAZELBAKER and my grandmother was Pearl KOCH HAZELBAKER. However, they are my really my great-grandparents but because they adopted my father Dennis Nelson HAZELBAKER in his youth they became my grandparents. His real father is Joseph Jay SHERWOOD. This was found out later in my father's life . Joseph SHERWOOD was borned and raised around Chillicothe area and his last known address is in the northern suburb of Cincinnati around Norwood or Loveland. My father has not heard from Joseph SHERWOOD since he was a child and it has become my dream to locate him or his family so that some voids can become filled.

I am also researching FREEMAN, WAMSLEY, EASTER. LISTON,SHIVELEY, LINCK,COLLINGS/COLLINS.

I'm searching for information on my GGparents who were from Co. Wexford, Civil Parish-Kilcowan, Barony-Forth, Trimmer, Ireland. The family name at that time was O'MOLLOY, but was changed when they came to America. John J. O'MOLLOY (aka. MALLOY) married Katherine (Kate) FAY in LeRoy, NY on May 9, 1893. Katherine may have been from the same area in Ireland)

John J. MALLOY (aka "The Old Gent") d. Feb 5, 1940; his wife Catherine d. 10 april 1925. They settled in Lima, Ohio, lived at 1911 Franklin St., and had 4 sons: John Fay (aka Jack) b. 1 Feb, 1894, m. Eunice (aka Aunt Bea) M. SWEENEY on 30 July, 1912; Charles Frederick (aka Hap -- my grandfather) b. 12 August 1897, m. Agnes Catherine BRUNETTE 26 Dec. 1917; Paul Joseph, b. 11 March 1899, m. Mary E.

I have loads of info on the BRUNETTE side of my ancestry, but practically nothing on my grandfather Charles, his ancestry and any relatives.

I'm a recent addition to the list and have been very interested in all the activity. I need some help in finding my ggfather's line. He was born in Knox County in 1837. Family lore has it that he was an orphan, so my question is - was it common to adopt a child and give him a new surname, or were these children raised with their family name. Second question, he was married in Oak Hill, OH. Does anyone know the county in which Oak Hill was located (it may also have been called Portland Village & if it was, it may have been located in Jackson County). I have in his own handwriting that the ceremony was performed by a J.P. named J. E. Jones, if that is at all helpful to anyone. Thanks. ------- NAME: Johanna C.

In researching the records in Ross County, I was able to find the deed where James Woosley sold property (Section 17, Township 9, Range 20, Ross County, Ohio) to George Stanhope in 1815. This section of land is not in the Virginia Military District, but is on the east side of the Sciota River within the area of land that is sectionalized. I have been trying to find the deed where James Woosley bought the land, so that I can find out where James migrated from. I believe that the land under the original grant was purchased by a John Baker. John Baker died in 1811 and willed the property to his two sons (one was of age and the other was not). However, I have not been able to find the deed where James Woosley possibly bought the property from the Bakers. I looked in the Ross County Recorders Office and the Ross County Archives.

I believe that my 1st grandfather was a part of an emigration from Fayette Co., PA to OH sometime prior to 1843 when he was married to Edith. It seems that there were a lot of FRAME family members who made this trip from PA to OH also and a lot of intermarriages between these two families.

I don't have any information on your families but I would check at the local library in Champaign County as a start. You can get information on that county at http://www.infinet.com/~dzimmerm/mchampaign. I would also suggest you read the information about pioneer routes in Ohio that I have posted at http://www.infinet.com/~dzimmerm/pioneer.html. Somewhere in there is a section with maps of early Ohio and you will discover that at one time Champaign County was a large county. This information should give you some more clues on where to look.

Dear Friend,
I write to you for Italy, I need of your help absolutely. Mygreat-granfather on side of my mother was Angelo MEOLA (b. Montecorice,Ortodonico, Salerno, Italy on 6.6.1860) Married Teresa DILUCCIA (b. in Casigliano, Sessa C., Salerno, Italy) two children:
Teresa jr. MEOLA(b. 6.4.1879)
Vincenzo MEOLA(b. 1.12.1881)

Angelo MEOLA and Teresa DILUCCIA emigrated and they left in Italy Vincenzo and Teresa Jr. On march 1881 Angelo MEOLA and Teresa DILUCCIA left Italy by ship "Vincenzo Florio" and they arrived to USA and they settled in Zanesville, OH (perhaps, later they settled in Columbus). They entered port of New York on the April 8th 1881.

In Zanesville, from Angelo MEOLA and his wife were born Luisa, Giulia, Maria, Angela and Nina MEOLA.

Vincenzo and Teresa jr., when adult, decided to emigrate from Italy to Zanesville and they united to the family.

In 1922 Angelo MEOLA, his wife and his son Vincenzo, returned in Italy for ever. So only MEOLA sisters remained in Zanesville. They married in U.S.A. and there they remained for ever.

About their husbands we know only that Teresa jr. MEOLA married Antonio GARGANO, Luisa MEOLA married a policeman, Angela MEOLA married but she didn't has children.

Vincenzo from Italy wrote always to his sisters Teresa, Luisa, Giulia, Maria, Angela and Nina until 1950, when Vincenzo and his father Angelo MEOLA died and in their town nobody knew how to write English.

Later all the letters and records were lost and so about American relatives we know nothing.

Vincenzo, returned in Italy, married and had 6 children. I am one of 16 grandchildren of Vincenzo and I am looking for notices about the descendants of MEOLA sisters who now probably are all died.

I hope to have been clear, if you have any doubt, contact me. I write you because only a local person can help me. Now I ask you to help me in some way:

1) I need of the e-mail address of some person of Zanesville ready to help me.
2) I need of the e-mail address of possible istitutions to which I can turn.
3) if you can effect personally the researches.
4) if you can give me the e-mail of possible newspapers or video-radio of Zanesville and Columbus.
5) if you can give me any informations thet can help me.
6) if you can diffuse this message for me.

When you give me your help consider I haven't informations over those I send you, and the language and the distance let alone unsuccessful knowledge about places and customs are for me a big difficulty.

I will grateful to you if you can help me in one of these ways.
Thanks for your attention.

Mick TRANOR ------- NAME: Barbara Trautlein EMAIL:btrautlein@hotmail.com SURNAMES: BARRETT, BRAINARD, FRARY, GOTTSCHALK, MAIN, PARMLEY, SWEET DATE: Thursday, September 3, 1998 QRYTEXT:I've been reading the newsletter for awhile & really enjoy the letters. I have been elected "historian" for the FRARY family, descendants of John & Prudence Frary of Deerfield, Ma in 1637. I haven't really gotten into the records yet but have the first volume of the genealogy if anyone is looking. My mother & her branch of the family is from Lake County in Ohio. I've been trying to find information about her mother's family but haven't gotten past my g-grandmother Emma Sweet Barrett and her brother George Sweet. I have a copy of my gg-grandfather's journal from the civil war. It starts out "Preface This little Book belongs to Bob Sweet of XX the 1st Ohio Heavy Artillery and contains all our principled martches(sic) in the state of Tenn and our numerous ups and downs and perilous adventures." I've read the 64 pages several times but haven't learned any other family names. I've been told numerous times that is a link to the Parmleys who owned the Parmley hotel in Painesville, OH but haven't been able to uncover that connection either. I don't know GMa Emma's husband's name either.

I do have some reseach that my cousins have done on the BRAINARD/MAIN side of my family & some for the SCHWAN family (my husband's mother) I would be happy to look up info for anyone if these names are familiar. We are from Lake and Ashtabula county and our ancesters moved to these counties from upstate NY. Thanks for being so helpful & friendly.

I pulled the death certificates on William and Mary Smith. I hope you don't already have them. I was using your request from Feb 4 requesting that information. If you want the copies send a self addressed stamped envelope to 650 N. Drexel Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43219.

William Smith DOD 1/13/1912 is listed as single. This could be because his wife died before he did. His POB is listed as Ohio. He was an assembler. He died on Pulmonary Tuberculosis in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio. Parents say don't know for both. Information was from Richard Saherpf of the St. El Hospital. He is buried in Woodland Cemetery.

Mary Smith DOD 12/16/1909 is listed as married. She died in Chardon, Geauga County. Her DOB is 5/28/1839 in Munson, Geauga County, Ohio. Parents: Henry Smith (born York state) and Lucy McBride (born York state). Informant was Addison Smith of Chardon Ohio and she is listed as buried in Chardon Ohio. She died of aortic insufficiency. I don't know if this is the right one but it was the only one close to the date you gave me.

I also have the death certificate for Joy Maxine Conerly but she died in Portage County not Summit as she was at the Eippert's Home for Invalids. It does note her address in Akron. Parents were: Henry Marvin Conerly (born Gainesville Florida) and Alice Rehberg (born Arcadia Florida). I don't want to put anything else up on the forum due to the rights to privacy. ------- NAME: Catherine Trent EMAIL:kathie@cybertours.com SURNAMES: ACKER, BIGELOW, NOBLE DATE: Friday, August 28, 1998 QRYTEXT:I am looking for information on this family:

~ My name is Jean Nalani Trobaugh. My husband is Gary Andrew Trobaugh of New Albany, Indiana. We are currently living in Bend, Oregon, however Gary's mother - Patricia Ann Neeley is living in New Albany. She has asked me to do some research into the Neeley family. I am also interested in the Trobaugh familty. We know very little as Gary's Father, Charles William Trobaugh died on February 1973 of a heart attack, in New Albany. Gary was only 8 years old at the time. I am looking for information on Charle's siblings and parents. Charles Trobaugh was married to Patricia Neeley and they had four children: Craig, Luann, Anthony and my husband, Gary Andrew Trobaugh.

I do have some limited information regarding the Neeley family. Patricia's Father was Collis Neeley and lived with Patricia for quite some time in New Albany, Indiana. He died in October of 1985 or 86. Collis was born in Harrison County, IN in December of 1902. Collis was married to an Alma Maskbee(?). We are unsure of the correct spelling of Maskbee, but we do know she was from Louisville Kentucky. Collis had step-brothers named Benjamen and Daniel, we think. One of them moved west to Los Angelos and had two daughters. These two daughters, interestingly enough were named "Star" and "Twilight" Neeley. We have no further information on these two women.

I guess a good place for us to start is with obtaining any records of Collis (birth, marriage death etc....) Iknow often times marriage records include both party's parents and birth records will for sure. Any assistance you can provide would greatly be appreciated.

Best Wishes,

This is my first post to the list.

The Leach family moved from MA to CT before coming to Geauga Co., OH. Solomon Leach b. 1814 NY, d. 1892 Arbila, Tuscola Co., MI, m. Harriet Ann FOWLER b. 1812 CT, d. 1846 Burton, Geauga, OH. She is buried in the Fowler Cemetery in Bainbridge OH. They had 6 children: Philetus E. b. 1836 OH, Enard b. 1837 OH, Sylvester b. 1841 OH, Edgar Fenton b. 1842 Burton, OH, Harriet b. 1845 OH, & Francisco b. 1839. All 5 boys served in the Civil War. After the War they scattered. Harriet, Enard, & Sylvester all went to MI. Philetus went to IA. Edgar went to Holt Co., MO. And Francisco stayed in Burton. Solomon married twice more to Mary Maynard in 1847 and had 2 boys Moses and Charles. His third marriage was to Susan Hoard by which he had 5 more children: Allison (M) b. 1857, Susan, Mary, Vivian, & Ulyses S. Grant Leach. Susan is the wife that moved to MI with Solomon.

Solomon's parents are the ones I would like to ask about. Harvey and Irene Van OCKEN LEACH. I have almost no information on them. Harvey was born in CT. And they had the following children: Harvey b. 1806, Solomon b. 1814 NY, Ira b. 1823, Charles, Elias, James, & Nancy. I would like to know if Harvey and Irene migrated from CT to OH. It is the only explanation I can find for Solomon being born in NY.

On Harriet Ann Fowler's line I know her grandparents Caleb and Mollie CHITTENDEN FOWLER migrated from Guilford, CT to Burton, OH. Caleb b. 1755 Guilford, New Haven, CT, d. 1822 Burton, OH, m. 1778 Mollie Chittenden b. 1760 Guilford, CT, d. 1787 in CT? They had a son Anson b. 1787 CT. Caleb married a second time to Olive MEIGS. Caleb served in the Rev. War. Anson b. 1787 CT, d. 1880, m. Lois HOTCHKISS b. 1791, d. 1854. These are Harriet Ann's parents. I have nothing further on them. Any information appreciated.

Harry H. LEGG was supposedly born somewhere in OH about 1840. He showed up in Lawrence CO., IN in 1866 when he married Nancy BEASLEY. They separated (not sure if they actually divorced although both remarried) after having one son Charles Henry in 1869. After the separation he shows up in IL in 1883 when his son Harry is born to his second wife Olive ALDRICH. He was supposedly a telegraph operator. Any clues to Harry is appreciated since he and Charles had no contact after the separation. Charles thought his last name was Beasley until the military told him otherwise.

Thank you for reading this, and for any clues to any of these people.

John W. b.June 2 1846 Sarahsville, Morgan Co., Ohio d. 25 Sept 1908
Orting, Washington m. Frances Viola Perkins 1Sept 1869 Saranac, Ionia Co.,Michigan

Family story goes that John and brother Allen ran away from home 1860. John lied about his age and his name to join the civil war. He used his father's name. From that time on even until death he never gave his right name or age. He stated," I RAN AWAY FROM A MEAN STEPFATHER." Because of his dislike for the name Frances he always call his wife by her middle name Viola.

ANY help with these families would help a number of people who are getting pretty much let down by not finding anything.

Thank goodness I found your site. Sure hope you can help. I will try to keep this as brief as possible, but do want to give some information. I have been tring to find who my gr-gr-grandfather's parent and siblings were. Here is what I know. My gr-gr-grandfather, Ralph HUNT, was born March 19, 1810 in Ohio. That is all I know about him until he marries Nancy Agnes SMITH on March 22, 1842 in Warren Co. OH. Nancy's family lived in Warren Co., Clear Creek Twp. This family was in Warren Co. until 1866 or 67 when they went to Huntington Co. IN. I have the 1850 & 1860 census. Ralph's son and my gr-grandfather, Edward Shannon Hunt, served in the Civil War from Warren County.

I feel that Ralph's father may have been one of four brothers who came to OH around 1805 from South Carolina. One brother was John Hunt, who was in Warren Co., I tried to make him my Ralph's father. He did have a son named Ralph, but I found this John Hunt and two sons, Ralph and John, buried in the Dodds Cemetery in Warren Co. Oh. My Ralph has a little daughter buried in this cemetery also, which leads me to believe that they were closely related. One of the four brothers was Edward, Samuel and Abraham. It seem that John Hunt was always in Warren Co., but I believe Edward, Abraham and Samuel was in Butler Co. for awhile. Edward may have been in Hamilton Co. later, and Abraham may have been in Darke Co. and Miami Co. later. I just can't seem to make a definate connection. One family story, which may or may not be anything , was that Ralph was from a large family, six boys (maybe some girls). His mother died, his father remarried, the boys scattered. Two were said to have gone to Randolph Co., IN.

Other family names from Warren Co. are: Hunt, Smith, Williams, Ward, Fry and Patterson. I would appreciate any help or advice you could give.

I am looking for any information you can provide regarding Ralph HUNT born 1810 in Ohio. I believe the family was in the Miami Valley Counties. He married Nancy Agnes SMITH in 1842 in Warren Co., OH. They had three children, Edward Shannon, Martha E. & Alexander. I have 1850 & 60 Warren Co. census, they are on these census. They left OH in 1866 or67. Martha E. died before she was two years old & was buried in the Dodd's Cemetery between Waynesville & Lebanon. I beleive Ralph may have been the son of one of four Hunt brothers, John, Edward, Samuel & Abraham, who came to OH in 1805 from SC. They were Quaker's and came to the Miami MM Meetings. The John Hunt & two of his son's are buried in the Dodd's Cemetery but he is not my Ralph's father as he had a son named Ralph & this Ralph is one of the son's buried in Dodd's Cem. Is there a centeral location where I could go to do research on all Miami Valley Counties, as my time would be short, I am out of state. Also, do you know of any Miami MM rercords other than the Henshaw Ency.? I don't find much on the Miami MM in this Ency.

I have already checked out the Delaware County Site and had some research done through the Historical Society on my ggg Grandfather, Rufus Atherton. I would like to hear from any of you that have visited this community and anyone that might be researching the Atherton name from this area (Rufus or Israel.) Rufus lived in Sunbury, Delaware County around 1820 and died in 1838 and buried in the Sunbury Cemetary. His son, Israel, was born in Sunbury and in 1840, as a young adult, migrated to Elmwood, Illinois. I am also interested in the DEUEL surname. Mary (Polly) Deuel was married to Rufus Atherton and she died in 1832.

Thank you so much for taking the time so look at my request.
I am trying to find information on my great-grandmother, Julia MONNING FISCHER, as she was known to my mother. However her name may have been Julianne or July Ann with the surname being Monnig.
We know she was born in 1846 and married John Adam Fischer in 1866 in Ironton, Ohio (Lawrence County). After the marraige they moved to Covington, Kentucky. My mother had been told they were married by a Catholic priest in Ironton. We know that she was not an only child, but we don't know of her siblings names or dates of birth or death.
Any information you can provide us with on the Monnigs of Ohio would be wonderful.
I do have a picture of my great-grandmother that I can share with you or anyone else who may be interested in seeing it.

Ebenezer Pearson m. Nancy Keene and had 5 children. only the youngest, Ebenezer, is known to me.

Jonathan P. (aka John P.) Pearson m. Margaret YOUNG and had at least 2 children, Amanda who died young of a bone infection(?) (d. abt 1836 or 8), John Young Pearson 1822-1911, and Sarah E. who may be from Jno's 2nd wife, T. A./E. Davis. there is a sister (name unknown) of John's buried in Bowling Green, OH.

I would be very interested in finding where these people and their relatives are buried. unfortunately, John Y. states that no-one had a tombstone as of 1910.

I believe John Young Pearson to be buried with his wife in Yankton, S. Dakota City cemetery, or perhaps on a hill in Rosebud, S. Dakota. otherwise, he would be buried in Edinburgh.

Sarah is probably buried in Oregon.

Eben Jr. is buried either in Garnavillo or Earlville, Iowa.

T. Davis Pearson is supposed to be buried in Youngstown, OH.

Is there any transcripts of private or public cemeteries of Edinburgh? I would like to know of any Pearson's found in such a transcript, and if William Ross and his wife, Cynthia are buried in Edinburgh. William Ross died in 1857. I assume Cynthia predeceased him, as John Y. had to deal with his effects ('though there is no doubt as to the class of women at that time, so she could have lived past William.)

Thanks for any help, leads or ideas.

It's very frustrating. I feel that if I could get to Portage county, I would be able to untangle the Ross/Bunnell/Pearson puzzle. I can't though. it's as far away from me as Russia, right now.

Gay and Connie Waugh ------- NAME: Melanie Wayman EMAIL:nwayman@viaduct.custom.net SURNAMES: MATTESON, MATTICE, TECUMSEH DATE: Thursday, April 30, 1998 QRYTEXT:I am interested in the information you have on TECUMSEH the great warrior and his families. I have read just about everything offered in reading material, relating to him...

I am interested in who all his brother's and sister's married, and what names they took, as Englishmen...and whatever became of Tecumseh's son/s or children......

I remember reading about the Galloways in the books on Tecumseh...I believe the girl he fell truly in love with was Rebecca Galloway? (If I'm not mistaken, of her first name) I and all my relatives, we handed down the story of my maiden/surname of MATTESON.....

There are many Matteson's, but none we can connect with, except for my first and second cousins....

My grandfather Matteson, used to tell all of us children that we were descendents of Tecumseh the Indian, and had indian blood....in us, but shouldn't be told, and then he'd start the story of the Trail of Tears..how the gov't pushed the indians westward, and if they knew we had indian blood in us, they might move us all over again, sometime....

I have a hard time not believing his story, as if you'd see pictures of my father and all of his brothers, and their father, and pics of his father, you can definately tell there is Indian blood there somewhere. All of them have the dark hair, and the red skin tone, and brown easily in the sun. They also have the very high cheekbones..I found one picture, of one of the Shawnee Cheifs, from OK, and he is the spitten image of my grandfather, my dad's dad...to this day, by dad and his brother's are all elderly, and they still have red cheeks...

I've traced my dad's family back to his greatgrandfather, William T. Matteson....."T" standing for "Tecumseh"..now I've understood, that there were many men in those days, who were given the middle name of "Tecumseh" but did they have the story behind it. During my research, I've not been able to find William T's parents..William died in Pike Co., IN and was buried in the Arnold Cemetery,(his wife's family cemetery)..he has two stones, one reg. headstone, and then he also has a military stone..His wife was Sarah Jane Arnold, her family came up to IN thru KY....I have her families line already traced, by another family member....but Matteson seems to be having a brick wall....

My grandfather, was very determined for us children to know this information, and when I talked to many of the older family members, they remembered that...these would've been his nephews and neices....I'd asked them where they'd heard this information from and they had said their parents, who would have been my grandfather's brother's and sisters. They mentioned that this information came from their grandfather, so this information almost has to be true...

Are you familiar with what Tecumseh's child/children's names are..where they went to after the Battle of Fallen Timbers' or Trail of Tears? Do you know the name of his sister's (Starwatcher)husband, or their children...Wasn't he supposed to be a furtrader? I'm sure they had children? Are you familiar with the Draper Manuscript? or the WaldomOldom Book, both of them are supposed to have personal information in them about Tecumseh and his family.....

Any information you can give me about his family would be of help..... I'd done some research on Tecumseh, obviously, and in one of the books written about him he was supposed to have married a woman named Mattice....that's who his son was supposed to have had as a mother....and if I'm not mistaken she was supposed to have been a little crazy(forgive me for the term, but wasn't sure of the term to use, as this is what was used in the book I read) but I had a theory, and some people think I'm a little touched in the head also, but my theory was......you know how indians and some foreigners named their children, so they can be identified many years down the road....they link names together, so their recognizable....so my theory was.....MATTICE+TECUMSEH=MATTESON.....MAT=MAT.....TE=TE.....SON=the son of Mattice and Tecumseh.... I'm not sure if I can get it any plainer....I think it's a pretty good theory!!

Since I've hit a brick wall, but the years really don't add up, unless I can find his families descendents, then it might all fit together........... I talked with author James Alexander Thom's wife....she is supposed to be a descendent of one of his family member's....and she gave me the run down...but don't see where she can be right....I've also talked with the Shawnee nation's and they don't think I'm right either, but he had many brother's and sister's....and they all didn't go to the reservations... I don't know how they know that we're not....also knowing human nature, and you can't be blind, but that doesn't mean that Tecumseh didn't also have affairs on the side...now how true all of this is, I don't know....but in one book, it was telling when Tecumseh, would come to a meeting of peace, he would be offered a woman for the night, to make him feel comfortable....and we also know how, and not meaning to be offensive to one race or any thing...but we American's know history, and the indians behavior, how they had also raped and kidnapped women and children....sometimes they got away, and sometimes they didn't.....and many of them had indian babies......true??? I feel bad to have to remember history that way....but that's what history says, please don't take offense..I personally don't have anything against their way of life, if that's what they choose, but this is history, and how true history is, it's only a degree, but that's also what we've been taught, be it right or wrong...truth or false.......

Well, if you have anything I can use, please let me know.......

I could sure use some help. I have been faithfully looking for over a year now for a mother and married daughter.

I have been looking for a death record and or burial place of each. Catherine MARTZ (August) and Caroline BECKMAN(Martz)

Catherine Martz (MARRS, MARZ) born Baden Germany husband Ignatius Martz (Marrs, Marz) born France. Can't find his burial either. They married in Stark County Ohio April 9 1833. Their daughter Caroline Martz Beckman born 1835 and son Joseph Martz 1836 were born in Stark County Ohio, The Martz moved to Shelby County Berlin Ohio and were listed as one of the first 54 families at St Michaels Church in Berlin in 1838. Daughter Caroline was married in Berlin to Henricus Beckman in Nov 6 1855. Children of Carolina born Nov 10 1858, Elisabeth Feb 12 1862, Odilla Matilda Dec 12 1864, Joseph October 8 1866, Bernard (Ben) Nov 28 1868, Johann Jan 6 1871 Henry Oft 24 1872, William June 23 1874.

Henry Beckman is buried at St Michaels church cemetery, in Berlin Shelby, Caroline is not buried with him. Children might be in Auglazie, St Mary's, or surrounding areas. Daughter Catherine moved to St Cloud Minnesota, mother is not buried there.

My question is where do I obtain a death record for Henry I tried probate in Shelby, but they couldn't find a record ?

Is there any kind of state death or cemetery index to find Catherine Martz and Caroline Beckman in Ohio?

What does the 1840-50-60 census show and where would I get them?

What luck would I have is I actually look for a researcher to do the work for me? I would really appreciate some advice. I cannot do paper research myself, I am vision impaired.

I am searching for WEAVER's in Columbiana Co. Ohio. In particular, a John Weaver or William Weaver, late 1700's-early to mid 1800's. We have come upon a conflict as to whether my g-g-gfather (Moses Weaver) was from SE PA or from Columbiana County(John Weaver). Any assistance would be appreciated.

Here is the biography of William Weaver from Alvords History of Noble Co.

"This prominent and publis-spireited citizen of Elkhart township was boirn on his father's farm in Orange township, Noble Co, Indiana, September 4, 1855. He was reared on the home farm and secured an education in the district school. After laying aside his books to take up the duties of the farm he remained with his parents until reaching manhood's estate. Marrying soon afterward, he remained one year longer on the home place, when he settled on a farm in Elkhart township, which has since been the principal scene of his labors. His marriage took placae December 25, 1879 to Miss Magdalena Frick, daughter of John and Delilah (Boyd) Frick. Her father was a native of Switzerland; her mother was a native of Pennsylvania, and was aborn December 28, 1832. They were married September 22, 1854, and settled in Elkkhart township. Here the father died February 21, 1870. They were the parents of eleven children, namely; Susan, who became the wife of Cornelius Resler, died in Noble count April 29, 1885; Mardalena, who is the wife of the subject, was born May 10, 1857; William is a farmer residing in Elkhart township; Barbara is the wife of Wesley Weaver, of Orange township; Christian died when about twenty-four years of age; Joseph; Edward; Amanda, a prominent young girl, died at the age of seventeen; Katie died in childhood; and the others who passed away in infancy.

Mr. and Mrs. Weaver are the parents of two children, Cora and Ruth. Mr. Weaver has devoted his years to the vocation of farming, and the strict application of his energies and intelligent thought has brought to him ample return. He has a fine farm located in the eastern part of the township of Elkhart, consisting of two hundred acres of fine land. The well-tilled field, handsome residence and commodious barns, and outbuildings, bespeak the truly thrifty husbandman. Representative as he is among a class of citizens noted for those measures of public policy which bear directly on material interests, he enjoys a high reputation for sagacity and integrity, and his opinions and views are recognized as worthy the highest consideration.

In matters of religion, Mr. and Mrs. Weaver are earnest and active members of the GermanBaptist church, and by their example and precept are influential among the congregation with whom they worship. Mrs. Weaver is especially devoted in the numerous kindly acts which spring from a high appreciation of the duties of the church in promotion the cause of Christianity and that advancement of civilization which results therefrom, and well deserves the esteem in which she is held by her numberous friends throughout the township and county.

Christian Weaver, father of William Weaver, was born in Columbiana county, Ohio, January 1, 1826; Christian's wife was Susanna Towns, a native of Stark Steuben County, Ind. and settled in Orange township Noble count, Ind, where she passed away January 10, 1900. The father still living. They were the parents of five children, namesly: John, who died in childhood; William, the subject; Sylanus is a farmer residing in Orange township; Wesley is also a farmer of Orange township; and Cornelius, who died in childhood.

The life work of this worthy couple is well worthy the emulation of those who seek to so live that theri future years may be rewarded by a competence when the weight of years shall come, and their memory will long remain among those with whom their lot was fortunately cast."

My 5th great grandfather, Daniel LORING, bought a share in the Ohio Company in November 1787 from Rufus Putnam with his Continental Specia and I believe $10.00.

Apparently they are not stored with the National Archives. Could they be in Columbus. If, by any chance, they are stored in Suitland, MD, please advise me how to contact them. I only live about five miles from there in suburban Washington, D.C.

Dear Maggie:

Thanks so much for answering my query. Page 94 of the Loring Genealogy states that on November 8, 1787, Daniel Loring"... gave Rufus Putnam, Agent, the sum of One thousand dollars in Continental Specie Certificates and Ten Dollars which I promise shall constitiute him the proprietor of one share in the funds of the Ohio Company." Obviously, I would like to locate the records so that I might get a copy of that portion if possible.

At that time,Daniel was living in Sudbury, Massachusetts, having been married to a Bathsheba Howe, daughter of Col. Ezekiel Howe of Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn fame. She died and he remarried and moved to Belpre.

Since you know the area, you undoubtedly are familiar with the old Loring farmhouse which was on the property now occupied by Shell Chemical. When I was very, very small, probably in 1928, I dimly remember my parents driving up the driveway to look at the old house. My mother told me that the apple trees around the farmhouse had been planted by Johnny Appleseed. The people at Shell told me that the house had been moved to Blennerhasset Island, although some years ago, my mother told me that she had been told it had been torn down. I didn't have an occasion to go to Blennerhasset then, but am planning to visit and go there later this spring.

Again thanks for answering.
Jean Winters



Jean,

Well I got educated today about The Ohio Company. BTW, I remember the house you are talking about. My grandmas house was right behind where they built the Shell Plant and we used to go there all the time. If you have not been to Belpre in a long time you are in for a pleasant surprise. They have built parks and really cleaned up along the river. Now back to what you wanted. I found the proof you want and copied the pages from "The Records of the Original Proceedings of the Ohio Company." I copied the entire transaction. It may be too much but I always like the entire thing so you go it all. (grin)Send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope to 6085 Wiclif Rd. NE, North Canton, Ohio 44721 and I will send you this back. The copies were $1.25. ------- NAME: Rich Winters EMAIL:mtwinters5@bigsky.net SURNAMES: TANCOS DATE: Saturday, November 7, 1998 QRYTEXT:Looking for any information on the surname TANCOS.

I have 2 questions:

1. Does anyone know of a good Donner genealogy for those that perished/survived in Donner Pass? There are Donner's in my line. They seem to have moved in and out of these counties - Crawford and Seneca. I would like to determine if they are related to the ill-fated Donner's from Il.

2. Can anyone help me with an old adoption? I am trying to determine my husband's genealogy, but I am stuck at an adoption. It seems that Frances Glaser (b. 1906 in Cleveland) gave up her son, Robert Edward (b. 1921 in Toledo), for adoption through Catholic Charities in Toledo. Both people have died, but not before I got what information they would give me. Catholic Charities will not give me any information. The state has given me Robert Edward's birth certificate. (Robert Edward is my husband's father.) Here are the stories I have gotten:

Frances Glaser's parents are supposedly Joseph and Catherine Piringer Glaser (both foreign) of which I can find no trace - no death, no birth, no arrival. The parents are an assumption from the last name, birthdate Frances gave us, Frances' SS number application and their ethnic origin. The birth certificate just says baby girl, Cleveland, and lists a midwife, location, names, ages and birth places of the parents. Frances had said that she was Chech, which made everyone think, including the children she raised, that she was foreign born, which she was not. I can not find the Glaser's in any census in Ohio - 1900 and later.

Frances said that she never knew her father and thought that her stepfather was her father. Frances' mother died, according to her, and Robert Edward was the result of incest, she thought. That is why she gave Robert Edward up in Toledo right after he was born. The last name of her stepfather would have been Walenta according to Robert Edward's birth certificate (Frances Walenta as mother). But instead of listing her stepfather's name, she listed a Raymond Edward Gearhart as the father. His age and occupation were listed, along with Frances'. It seems that Frances told whoever made out the birth certificate that she was 17 and a factory worker. In reality, she was 15. She gave her address in Toledo but it belonged to Frank and Nellie Cleveland in 1920-1922 according to the phone directory for Toledo. They were in their 20's according to the census - Frances was not listed. The hospital where Robert Edward was born has nothing on him or his mother.

Frances went to Nursing school. Toledo's school has no record of her attendance. Local homes for unwed mothers also had no record of her. Frances later appeared in Flint, Michigan, married to Francis Coyne.

I checked most Walenta's I could find in the census soundex index. There were a couple of possibilities but there was no Frances listed.

Regarding the mystery person, Raymond Edward Gearhart, ...He was supposed to be a school teacher in Black Creek, MI. Someone searched for me and found him listed with a large family in that area in 1900. He does not appear with that family in 1910, however, when he would have been 10 years old. For the years he could have been a school teacher, in time to be listed on Robert Edward's birth certificate, the teacher directory/year books are missing (interestingly enough, the only ones missing are for those years). The school system was reorganized and some records burned, so there is nothing else I know of to verify he was there. In searching the SSDIndex, I found a Raymond Gearhard with the correct birth year who died in Iron Mountain, MI, which is not too far from Black Creek, WI. I requested his SS number application 1 month ago, but have not received it yet. Even if I determine he could be the father, I have no way to prove it. My husband suggested paying for a DNA test, but there is no one to test (that I know of)!

Any suggestions of where I can look next?
