I am looking for Frank and Mary Neldon. I found them in the 1900 Census, but have nothing before or after that. They apparently moved to Hubbard or Youngstown, OH, because Roscoe lived there most of his life. Frank Neldon was born June 1865 in Perry Township, Coshocton Co. Ohio. He married Mary McGill.

Child of Frank Neldon and Mary McGill is:
+ 2 i. Roscoe2 Neldon, born February 17, 1899 in Perry Township, Coshocton Co., Ohio; died November 12, 1969 in Williamette National Cemetery, Portland, Oregon.

Hi. Do you know if your ADAMS was of German descent? I am searching for a Walter ADAMS who married Addie Elizabeth WALDEN from SC. This would be a very early 1900's marriage. They lived or near Cleveland and had several children, among them: Virginia Mae ADAMS, Howard ADAMS, Jean ADAMS - and a few more. This is my husband's mother's family.

Any info will be greatly appreciated!

Searching for information on my GG GF, James LEAZENBY. Most specifically, where he was born/date, parents/siblings, you know - anything I can get my hands on!

From the 1860 Indiana census, James was 37 years old (born sometime in 1823) and was born in OH. His wife's name was Susan M. (don't have her maiden name) born 1832 in VA. Their sons: Caleb (born 1852 in IN) and Joshua W. (born 1854 in IN - my G GF). From this information, I'm assuming James and Susan married around 1850 timeframe....

An 1850 OH census lists a James Leazenby living in Pickaway Co., Darby Twp., OH. He is also listed on an 1851 OH census, same place and then is in Miami Co., Osawatomie Twp., KS in 1870. Is there anyway I can confirm that this is the same person as listed in the 1860 IN census?

Any help on this family is greatly appreciated.

When my grgrandmother, Joanna(LINDERMAN) wife of Thomas Jefferson SHRIDER died, my grandmother, Molly SHRIDER was placed in the Allen County Childrens Home. This was in 1888 and Molly was two years old. I have not been able to get any information on her placement there or where the other children went, Fanny, Grace, George, Minnie. Bessie, I am told was raised by a family named WHITE (he was a minister?) If family lore is correct she spent 12 years there. Perhaps she was not placed in the A.C. Childrens Home at that young an age?

Still searching for some missing "links"..John Quincy ADAMS, m Rose (Rosa) BUCHANAN Jewett. In the 1900 Fed Census John is listed as a widower living in Ward Twp, Hocking County, OH. Rose is listed as Rose Jewitt(Jewett) employed as a servant and married to Robert H. Jewitt (Jewett). In 1910 census John and Rose are listed as married and living in The Plains area of Athens County, OH. In the 1920 census they are listed as living in Dover Twp, Millfield, Athens County, OH. John and Rose had two sons, Cecil and John Quincy Jr. I do not know when John Q. senior died but it must have been between 1920 and 1934 as Rose is listed as a widow on her death record in 1934. If anyone has access to Athens County obits I would appreciate it if someone would check for John Quincy. I know that the ADAMS line that I am desperately seeking lived in Meigs County, Athens County and Hocking County. Rose was born in Morgan County OH, daughter of Alexandar Buchanan and Amy Harkins.

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.

With the middle name of FINK there surely has to be a connection to the FINK family; perhaps you already have it, if not you might want to look further, try this link: Rhodes Family or http://dttwv01.org/sue/rhodes.htm Both should lead to the same place.

It has been a while, so thought I would try again. I'm looking for information on John G. KRILE b Feb 1856 and Maria C. PELTON. b July 1855 d. 1943. John and Maria were married in Fulton County, Ohio on October 5 1887. In the 1900 census, listed with them were two daughters Retta V. and Leah Pearl.

Retta V. was born Sept 1880 and married a man by the name of STEWART|STUART. They had a son named Donald.

Leah Pearl was born July 1883 and died in 1924. She was married to Clair A Loveland from whom she was later divorced. They had one daughter Shirley Marie Loveland.

John KRILE was married prior to his marriage to Maria PELTON, but all I have is a first name, Kate.

Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Lauri in Idaho

What I know:
These Mason's ended up founding the town Streator Ill.
Ellen Conley's family was in transit when they met:
"James Mason's wife's family in 1776 moved to Fairfax Co. VA where Joseph Warner owned land adjacent to G. Washington's Mt. Vernon plantation. In 1802 he moved to Madison Co. OH and on to LaSalle Co. IL in 1808. Practically everyone stayed in the Streator, Illinois area, and even Joseph Warner is also buried here in Illinois."
We have been searching for fifty years for more information on James Mason. We know he married his wife in Ohio, and their children Joseph, Isaac, and Sarah were all born in Ohio. Practically all were laid to rest in Illinois.
We have always followed the Episcopalian religion.
James Mason told us that he was from Virginia, like his wife.
Madison County, Ohio comes up frequently in Warner records.
The hard part to trace is that we know nothing about James Mason's ascendants, his parents, other brothers and sisters, if any.
Bless your search,

Date posted: Saturday, September 5, 1998

Hi Maggie. I would appreciate hearing from any one who has information about a Mary Martha (HEDGES)-maiden name (CAMPBELL-1st marriage) HUSSEY (sp). I do not know "? Hussey" s first name. Mary Martha Hedges from around Bremen (Fairfield Co.) OH was married to my husband's grand father John Wesley Campbell. They lived for a time in Chillicothe or at least she lived there. I understand from mixed stories from my husband and his brother, who are both deceased now, that Mary Martha was later married a man named Hussey. They lived on the hill (bank side) on Western Ave. and had a bottling business. This would have been in the 1920-30's. I do not believe they were in the bootlegging business, although my husband's father (Grover Wesley Campbell) made bootlegg beer and hid it under the porch when they lived on East Second st below Watts or around that area.

Grover abandoned his wife and two boys and was not heard from until he showed up many years later in Washington CH with another wife. (ANNA?) His first wife (my husband's mother - Mary Maretta (Work) Campbell) took her two boy's and moved back to Lancaster (Fairfield Co.) OH. I don't believe they ever heard from or about Mary Martha Hedges Hussey again.

Grover's sister Stella (Campbell) Waits and her husband Frank lived in Chillicothe until their deaths. Mary Martha Hedges Campbell and John Wesley Campbell were the parents of three children, Grover (my husband's father), Aunt Stella Waits, and James Edgar Campbell who lived in the Carroll (Fairfield Co.) OH area until his death.

John Wesley Campbell(dob-Oct 10, 1865) son of Jacob and
Elizabeth(Fausnaugh)Campbell They both died in Fairfield Co. OH
Mary Martha Hedges Campbell (dob-unk) place of birth believed to be Fairfield Co.
Stella (Campbell) Waits dob- April 28, 1883 born also in Fairfield Co. Died in Ross County, OH
Forest Grover Campbell dob - May 19, 1885 died in Washington CH. (Fayette Co ?)
James Edgar Campbell dob - March 13, 1890 died in Fairfield Co. OH

I would appreciate it if you would put this out in the right dirrection. I do not know the Ross Co. e-mail, webb page

Oh yes: Congratulations to all the 1938 Graduates of Chillicothe High School on the occasion of their 60 th reunion. Sorry I will not be able to be there but had to make a rush trip back to OH (Lancaster) for my son's Open Heart Surgery in Aug.

Hi. I just joined this list about a week ago and have been enjoying reading the posts. The following is from a paper written by my great-aunt, Grace BELL JONES AUSTIN (1873-1965) in 1951.

"The 'Western Fever' was raging in the eastern states 'in the days of old, the days of gold, the days of '49', and Ohio, scarcely out of its own pioneering days, was no exception. When it struck the neighborhood of the Bells and DeLongs in what was then Morgan County, it aroused the same craving for adventure and land of their own in the younger generation, that induced their forbears to cross an ocean instead of a continent.

On a Sunday late in March 1851. relatives, friends and neighbors from miles around forgathered at the Joseph Bell home to say God-be-with-you to a party about to leave for Oregon. George Cyrus Bell and Mary Ann DeLong were "keeping company" and, of course, Mary Ann was there. By this time everyone -- there were exceptions -- was coming down with the "Oregon fever" and at the last moment George Cyrus decided to join the party; that is, if Mary Ann would go with him. They strolled away from the crowd to talk it over, and Mary Ann did not fail him; then or ever. They talked of the fertile country and mild climate, but could they leave home so far behind? There was little or no time to consider or to prepare for such a journey. Notwithstanding these and many other objections, they decided to be married at once and in two days leave with brother John's party for the vast faraway unknown that was called The West. With hopes so high how could they doubt that someday they would return to home, friends, and their dear Brookfield?

In 1934 Mrs. Angie Thrap Nosset of Cumberland, Ohio gave me the names of eleven members of the party. She was ninety-one years old, and still remembered when she went to school for one day to Mary Ann DeLong. She was only eight years old when the party left for Oregon, but she named the following members. There may have been others:

John W. Bell, his wife Lorena Nickerson Bell, and their small daughters, Rebecca and Caroline.
George Cyrus Bell and wife Mary Ann De Long Bell.
Clarissa Bell, their sister, who in 1856 married Nathaniel DuBois.
John Lambert and wife.
David Lambert.
George Lambert.

Partings are strewn all along life's journey. They were leaving home, parents, numerous relatives and the young friends with whom they had grown to maturity. Some hundred years later we found among Mary Ann's things a beautiful shell case that contains a leather-bound autograph album dated 1850. Besides the usual verses from the signers, a lock of his or her hair, braided and artistically arranged, is fastened to the page. A relic of her youth which she could not leave behind, and over which she must have wept when overwhelmed with longing for home and loved ones.

Grandfather George Cyrus Bell was educated at Granville College, Ohio. As they plodded along faint trails or wagon tracks over the primitive plains and rugged mountains that lay between Ohio and the promised land, he kept his diary - kept it as long as he lived. After his death in 1893 and Grandmother's in 1902, the new house he built shortly before I was born was burned and the priceless record with it. In the Fall of 1851 they reached Portland, Oregon."

Excuse my typing tonight, keys in humidity I guess.

OK page 060D Akron Ward 3, Summit Co, Ohio census 1880 did NOT yield data on one of your key questions...the daughter by the first marriage, Anna Ray Noble is not listed..away at boarding school? But the data yields several surprises.

W. A. Noble is listed at 102 Bowery Street - if I'm reading the handwritten entry correctly. WM 28 Machinist. Born in PA (not Mass, as family legend had) Father born New York, Mother born NY.

Kate, wife, WF 31 Keeping House Born OH, Father NH, Mother OH

Josephine B. daughter WF 2

Isabelle G, daughter WF born Nov 6 months (census 7 June 1880)

[that is born Nov [1879]; 6 months old]

And, added census bonus :):

Lydia D., WF 72 born NY, Father NY, Mother NY - obviously W. A.'s mom!

Both daughters born in Ohio.

Also in household: KLINE, Ida WF 17, born Ohio, parents in Germany

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


at 104 lived the next entry:

GOODRICH, B. F. WM 38, Propr. Rubber Wks.

Benjamin Franklin Goodrich (1841-1888) was in the last decade of his short, but productive, life. He died in a Colorado sanitorium of TB - consumption as it was known then - so was not Noble's neighbor in fact during much of the time - travelling between Colorao and the spas of Europe.

Hi, I am looking for the WHIPPLE family. My gg grandfather was WHITMAN WHIPPLE. He died in MI, in 1867, I believe he was born abt 1839-49. place of birth is listed as Ohio. His wife was Ann PAINTER b. Ohio. His parents are listed as William S. Whipple mother not listed. I find WILLIAM S. WHIPPLE wife Bethia, in Williams co in 1850 2 sons Benjamin and Augusta. (my Great grandfather's middle name was Augusta). Frank list his place of birth as MI. in 1865, so I believe they left Ohio about 1857. I have found nothing that links WHITMAN WHIPPLE with William S. except the death records and the fact that in the 1880 census Berrien co. Mi. William and Berthia lived 3 houses away from Ann and Frank. I think Augusta WHIPPLE may really be Whitman. What I am looking for is a special census, or land, school, or marriage records that will help me link WHITMAN WHIPPLE TO WILLIAM S. and Berthia WHIPPLE. My best guess is William Co. but they seamed to move a lot. William was a farmer. I believe Ann PAINTER and WHITMAN WHIPPLE may have been married around 1857 or 1858. I have no information on her family except she is listed a being b. in Ohio. Any help or clues you can give me I would most appreciate.
Thank you

If anyone has any links or information on these people, I would sure appreciate being pointed in the right direction. I know Gaylord and Margaret got married in Oil City, PA.

Mary Ann Widger's parents are Thomas and Sarah WIDGER. That is all we know about them. John and Mary Ann went breifly to IN and had one child, Orphlia abt 1840, then they went to IL and had James Franklin abt 1841 IL, Sarah Abt 1842 IL, Otis Robinson abt 1843, Joseph 14 April 1844 in Greenville Bond Co., IL, Sidney Ellen Abt 1847 IL, Harriet in 1848 IL.

Hello all -

I joined this list a few hours ago and am not yet familiar with the accepted protocol of this particular list.

There are 3 names in my family search that all keep coming back with the answer "born in Ohio". Unfortunately, that is about all I know other than a date (incomplete in some cases).

Perhaps I will get lucky and find someone here who has some information on the following people:

1). Henry PAYNE, b. ca 1826 in OH
m. Melinda Unknown

children: Raymond Sylvester PAYNE b. April 19, 1861 (Crawford Co, WI supposedly)
James PAYNE b. ca1863 location unknown

2). Martha Jane SHOOP b. Dec 25, 1853 in OH to Andrew SHOOP and mother unknown.
About 1856 Andrew SHOOP married Susana LINTNER/LINTKNER/LENTKWER who is documented as the step-mother of Martha SHOOP.

3). Susana LINTNER (also have seen it as LINTKNER and LENTKWER) b. Jul 11 1837 in Crawford Co. OH. The SHOOP family moved to WI about 1871.

I've been reading the sites about how to obtain vital records from the state of Ohio. Unfortunately, I am feeling a bit scared away by mention of the available years. All the dates I need pre-date the years of recordkeeping by the state.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to go about finding more info on these people, I would be most appreciative. Thank You.

Am still searching for a way to place Anna in the family of William Acker Noble & Kate Bigelow of Akron, Ohio. They were married 1877 in Akron, Ohio.
I just reviewed Anna's death obituary and it does say that she was a member of the "Grace Episcopal Church" in Mansfield, Ohio. Can someone please locate the address of this church for me. Maybe I can write and be able to get some more information.
At that time she might of been married to a "Adams", and had three children: George, Dorothy and Natalie. I have no dates, but by 1898 she was married to a Edward Hilbourn and had a son, unknown where he was born. Since she was born about 1867/68 in Evansville, In, I would think that she probably was married to Adams about 1886/88 and he either died or she divorced him before 1897.
Would appreciate any help, and ideas.

I am searching for children of Levi and Almeda Arnot Canterbury. Levi, b c 1797 in VA. was the son of John and Nancy Lowe Canterbury. Almeda Arnot, b 4 Aug 1799 in Monroe Co. VA, the d/o Henry and Elizabeth Truesdale Arnot. Levi and Almeda were married 30 April 1816 in Monroe Co. Va. They moved to Decatur Twp, Lawrence Co. OH in the 1830's and later moved to Gallia Co. where Levi died on 26 Dec 1875.

I have 5 documented children for Levi and Almeda; John, b 1817 in Va; Levi Jr. b 7 June 1834 in Gallia Co.; Andrew, b 1839; Mary E. b 1842; and Eveline, b 1844. I find it extremely strange that no children were born bewteen 1817 and 1834.

Can anyone help solve this mystery? Looking forward to hearing from you if you can.

Hi,

The name Youe, Yone, Youa is the surname of my grandmother, Laura Mae, b. 5/6/1869, d. 4/11/1934, Warren Co., Ohio, married 5/26/1887, James A. Collins, Clinton Co., Ohio.

When written it is usually deciphered in one of the above ways. As the story goes Laura was an orphan from Holland, if she was orphaned at time "Who would have paid her passage to the states"? If she was with parents at time of immigration, and they died on board ship, would she be placed in an institution, children's home or whatever?

Has anyone evere seen a name similar or tell me where it originated from?

Does anyone out there have copies of the Shelby County Geneological Publication "SHELBYANNA?" I am looking for these back issues:

Issue # 3.....and July 1981.

Also, I have been looking in several counties in OHIO for ANY traces of Elijah PIXLEY, Rev. War Soldier, b. 1763. June 1, 1791, he married Thamur Clarissa SHERWOOD in Washington Co. Elijah lived in Adams Co. and Shelby Co. also.
His children, all born in Adams Co. are:
James, b. Jan 1792, d. July 1855. wife, Sophia Carr - June 1818.
Lydia, b. Feb. 1793, d. Aug. 1870. sp. Wm Puntenney - March 1814.
Sally Ann, b. 1790's?, sp. Moses Wiley - June 1816.

Elijah, b. 1790's?, d. April - 1873, LaGrange Co., Oh.
sp. Lucretia Massey, Nov. 1827, Adams Co.
Elizabeth, b. 1803?, d. April 1881, sp. Joseph Thomas
Susannah - b. ?, d. ?.

Elijah died in 1824. He filed for pension in Adams and Shelby Co. both. There were always members of the PLUMMER family anywhere Elijah moved to. I think they moved together.

In Feb. 1793, Elijah was in a party garrisoned at Belleville, Va.(now W.VA) This is near what is now Parkersburg, W. VA. I have heard about the massacre of Shawnee Indians near this area, and his party was involved. Does this sound familiar to anyone out there?

Please let me know if these names sound familiar, or if you run across them in any of your research. I need help from Arkansas to OHIO.

1. Jacob1 Niggemeyer was born 1804 in Paterburn, Germany, and died 1876 in Athens County, Ohio.

Notes for Jacob Niggemeyer:

When the Niggemeyers came to the United States in 1860, other family members migrated to Rochester, New York and others to Wheeling, West Virginia. (Delmar remembers visiting some of the relatives in West Virginia)

Notes for John B. Niggemeyer:

Residence of John Niggemeyer, Carthage Township

...............Need to insert picture here..............


The picture here shows not only the residence and farm of one of the best and most prosperous farmers in Carthage township, but is also a picture of practically all of John Niggemeyer's family. Mr. Niggemeyer, the subject of this sketch, is one of those thriving German-Americans who started with nothing but good health and a strong determination to succeed, and is now enjoying the product of a life time of hard work and strict economy, and is consequently in comfortable circumstances. One of the reasons for Mr. Niggemeyer's success, lies in the fact that he has always put brains into his efforts. In about thirty-five years, he has accumulated a farm of nearly four hundred acres, which is one of the best improved farms in the township. He makes his land pay good returns on the investment.

John Niggemeyer is of foreign birth and lineage, having been born in Paterburn, Germany, June 24, 1843. He came to America in 1860, locating in Carthage township, Athens County, Ohio in 1867. Here, October 26, of this same year, he married Margaret Staab, who was born in Noble County, March 16, 1845. Mrs. Niggemeyer's parents, also, were born in Germany. Mr. and Mrs. Niggemeyer are the parent of nine children. Lena, Mary, John B., Adam, Katharine, Anthony, and Elizabeth (twins), Isabella and Lawrence. All of these children are living. Mrs. Niggemeyer died Sept. 22, 1904.

Hi Maggie:

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.

Thank you Maggie for any help that you might possible be able to give me.

Maria(h) Louise Hale (b.1814) married William Stricker (b.1813 PA) abt. 1835? 36?.

They left for Viroqua, Wisconsin in 1854 or so where they settled, farmed and died. Their son William stayed in Viroqua all of his life also. Is anyone out there familiar with this family? Who were Mariah's parents? Where is Wayne Township? The elder William Stricker is said to be from Knox County, Ohio and I think his father may also be a William Stricker (I found mention of a probate record for a William Stricker in Knox County in 1849...could this be the head of the family?)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi All,

I'm searching for the "missing parents" of my third great grandfather, Christian Peter LEATHERMAN. He was born July 10, 1814 in Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio His parents were probley involved with the Dunkard Church as was many Leatherman's who originally came from Germany. His Obit which is typed below shows he moved to Orange County, IN when he was four.

I don't have access to a 1810 or earlier Dayton Census

The 1830 Orange County, Census I found a Christian and John Leatherman who are probley brothers. I have all of Christian's children and due to the birth dates of Christian's children I have ruled him out as Christian's father. John is a possiblity but I have no proof. Christian and John's father is Peter LEATHERMAN b. November 15, 1757 in Wolfsville, Frederick, MD and married Mary Anna Schwigart. I'm sure I have the right family but who is Christian Peter's parent's?

The 1880 census shows C.P. Leatherman is in the village of Mason, IL age 65. It shows his father as born in OH and his mother in GER. He is shown with his wife, E.?, (Elizabeth probley), born in IN, with father born in KY and mother born in TN.

Obit of Christian Peter Leatherman copied from an old original column that states Farina, IL at the top and no date. I checked with Effingham County and Fayette County, IL and was unable to locate a death certificate. I don't have all the names of Christian's children. Christian Peter Leatherman married Elizabeth KRUTSINGER in Orange County, IN on October 20, 1836. Elizabeth was b. December 07, 1821 in Orange Co., and died April 15, 1904 in Golden City, Barton Co, MO.

CHRISTIAN PETER LEATHERMAN was born at Dayton, Ohio, July 10, 1814. When he ws four years of age his parents removed to Orange county, Indiana, where on Oct. 20, 1936, he married Elizabeth Krutsinger, with whom he traveled life's journey for a period of sixty-one years, four months and twenty-eight days. Twelve children -- seven sons and five daughters-blest this union, three of whom, two boys and one girl, died in infancy. One daughter, aged twelve, died in 1860, since which, thirty-eight years ago, there has been no death in the immediate family until now. Mr. Leatherman professed faith in Christ in 1857, under the pastorate of Rev. Hiram Warner in Gentry County, MO., and united with the Christian church, and for forty-one years in sickness, in health and in all the recessitudes of life he beautifuly exemplified the eminent practicability of the religeon of out Lord Jesus Christ. All through his illness, which con tinued through a period of eight months, and during wich time he was confined to his room and most of the time to his bed; he was patient and wholy resigned to the will of God and when the end came, on March 18th, 1898, he passed triumphantly to his reward, at the ripe age of 83 years, 8 months, 8 days. Seven of eight children were present, [the] oldest of whom is past sixty [years] old, and the youngest thi [.......] The bereaved widow on [.........] her husband's death was 70 [years] [...] months and 11 days old.

The average age of the eight children was 47 years, 11 months and 12 days, including the parents it was 54 years, 4 months and 9 days. Thus the whole family have in aggregate lived a period of time equal in duration to about five and one-half centuries. Two of the girls and three of the boys reside in Illinois, one girl andone boy in Missouri, and one boy in Kansas. The funeral services were conducted by Elder Wm. T. Gordon from the Christian church at Edgewood, Ill., and the reamins interred in the Edgewood cemetery on Sunday, March

But then I find this man on the Internet and I cannot place him at all. He is Henry Wilbert "Bert" Moninger. It says he was born May 22, 1883 in Londonderry, Ross Co. Ohio and died January 4, 1965 in Senecaville, Guernsey Co. Ohio. His wife was Lola Mae Moorehead, 1885 - 1954, born and died in Sernecaville, OH. They had 6 children: Mary Edith, Helen Idora, 1906 - 1986, Bertha Mae 1910 - 1977, Wilbert Arthur 1916 - 1965, Daisy Mae 1918, George William 1920 - 1986.

The last three children were born in Cambridge, Ohio.
I have spoken to Daisy about her dad - she said that there were never any reference made to her grandparents. Do these names ring a bell to anyone?

I am searching for the family of John FOLKS. He was born in Ohio in 1836. His father was born in Georgia and his mother in New York. Sometime prior to 1861, John, and his brother Richard, moved to California. He may have made this trip with the Goforth family (Charles Andrew and Levina), and/or with his parents. The name could have been spelled a variety of ways, including Fooks, Fokes, Folkes, Folk, etc. I do not know the father's name. Apparently John ran away from home as a young boy, which makes him someone's missing brother or son.

If this sounds familiar, please let me know. I'm running short on ideas.

Johann Balthasar Dingeldein b 1793 Germany came to USA in 1830 landing in Baltimore and eventually finding his way to Ohio.

With him came his wife Katharine (b1799) son Johann Georg (b 1830) and other son Johann Sebastian (b 1822). Georg (my ggGrandfather) moved to Pike County while the rest stayed in Tuscarawas Co. In the 1850 census Belehazar, Catherine ,Sebastian , and one daughter Henerietta are listed. By 1850 there should be 4 daughters listed, Susanna (b 1838) Sophie (b 1844), Anna Katharine (b 1836) the last was Wilhemine (b 1852)

In the 1880 census they are all not listed .

In the Ragerville Cemetery I find Sebastian's Family but no one else.

I do know Belehazar d 1868 Katharine d 1846 but where they are buried I don't know but would say in the Ragersville area.

Hi,

I am new to the list and I am hoping that someone will have some expertise on where to head me next. I am desperately searching for a birth certificate for Margaret Marie KECSKES/KESCKES who was born January 8, 1908 in Adena. I have written to the various agencies and they just keep referring me to someone else. Her father was a coal miner and it appears they went next to Mongolia Cnty, WV. I have been unable to get much information on this line and any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. She had a brother Gaza and a sister Isabella.

Thanks in advance,

Gina Hinds

AMERICAN ANCESTORS AND COUSINS OF
THE PRINCESS OF WALES

by Gary Boyd Roberts and William Addams
Reitwiesner, published in 1984.

Actually it turns out I'm double-related as my Thomas FORD connection was through his first marriage to Joan Waye and Diana - according to Ken - I'll have to get the book..was from the second marriage to Elizabeth Chard(e) - BUT I'm descended from Elizabeth Chard(e) through her first marriage to Aaron Cook :)

These were passengers on the "Mary and John" which sailed in 1630, landed in Dorchester, Mass, then many of the inter-marrying Puritans from this landing up and founded Windsor, CT in 1635. And MANY of us in Ohio are descended from subsequent moves by these families into the Western Reserve of Ohio.

I'll appended Ken's comments then shut up about this:)

>This would be Thomas Ford of the "Mary and John"? married to Joan Waye and (2nd) Elizabeth Chard? A child left behind in England?

Yes, Thomas Ford, b. 1587, Bridport, England and wife, Elizabeth Charde, b. 1589, Bridport.

> Does this mean we get invited to Harry's coronation?

I have not received mine yet!!

Hi
Could some one look up in the 1850 Census for Marie BABCOCK born 20 Jun 1847. Her parents are William Babcock and Mrs? both born in NY in 1812. she had an older brother Charles born in1837 PA and a younger brother William born 1850 in Oconee Shelby IL.
This family are my great grand mother and her parents, I found them in the 1870 census of Oconee Shelby IL and it gave the birth place of Marie as IL but she and her husband moved to Lowell Kent MI where most of there children were born and in the 1880 census for Lowell Kent MI it gave Maries birth place as Ohio. I am trying to find Marie's birth place and her mothers name. The census taker for the 1870 census did not record the name of the wife, only Mrs. I could pull his hair out!! LOL.

Does anyone possibly have information on Sarah ARMSTRONG Rogers who was born in the mid 1700s? Sarah ARMSTRONG could be possibly from Ireland, but she lived in Washingon County, PA. She was the great grandmother of George Armstrong Custer, the famous one of Custer's Last Stand at Little Big Horn.

CUSTER'S OHIO BOYHOOD by Charles B. Wallace:
"NAMES OF CUSTER CHILDREN: It has been said that General Custer was named for a Methodist preacher. It is more likely that he was named for a relative, perhaps George Washington Custer, his father's brother who resided at one time in Jefferson County, Ohio, or maybe for his mother's grandfather, George Ward. Doubtless, his middle name derived from the family name of his great grandmother, Sarah Armstrong."

"WARD FAMILY NOTES - General Custer's maternal grandparents were James Grier Ward and Catherine Rogers. James G., a son of George and Mary Grier Ward was born about 1768 in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. His wife Catherine, a daughter of Thomas and Sarah ARMSTRONG Rogers, was born about 1776 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

Hi Everyone!

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. LUNDGREN 1923; James Alfred, b. 16 Feb 1891, m. Rosetta (aka Aunt Rose) Anna Knerr 25 Jan, 1923.

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

Hi

I am new to this area and my local knowledge is zero and would be grateful for any help in the following.

My GGrandfather Grimshaw CROWTHER (also known as James GRIMSHAW in Ohio) was a stonemason who lived at Kent, Portage, Ohio in the 1880's. Would there be much work for a stonemason at that time and how big was Kent in those days. Was it mainly agricultural or industrial. When he died at sea in 1888 the occupation on his death certificate was Contractor?

He owned two properties in Kent, one in Crano Avenue and the other on the corner of Stow and Mantua Streets. (these houses would have been long gone as I believe at the time of his death they were about forty years old.) Do these streets still exist and where can I check if these houses did indeed belong to him.

Also is there a mailing list just for this part of Ohio.

Thanks

Cheers

The second name I am lost with is ODER. 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.. :-)
Thanks ya'll...

Sophia LAW married William COMPHER in Coshocton Co. Ohio December, 1890.
Both were, I believe from Harrison Co. Ohio
Sophia's parents may have been John LAW and ?? GORDON....
William's parents may have been William. someone gave me a date of death for Wm. (Jr) of 1934 but I can't find a death cert for him in Ohio..
Sophia's death cert said: CAMPHER....Sophia's death cert said she was buried in Coshocton Co. ( or her death notice... or both)
Somehow there is a connection to a SHRYOCK family. I think a 1/2 brother of Sophia.

Is anyone else interested in these families?

I know he had many children of which I have Joseph, Ward, and Simeon. There was another know to have lived in Texas, and a sister also un-named. If I can get his place of burial, perhaps I can find more.

Dear Maggie Stewart-Zimmerman-

I am in need of your HELP!

Can you search for a Birth Certificate for my Grandfather:

Charles Franklin BAUMANN, born 12 Jan 1878, Sidney, OHIO

His Father: Christian BAUMANN, born 1840, Bavaria/Germany
His Mother: Ann Elizabeth GEMINN, born 1845, (Where unknown)
Her Father: Daniel GEMINN
Her Mother: WEAVER

All I've found is an 1880 Census listing.
Charles F. had brothers:
Daniel C. BAUMANN, born 1874
John L. BAUMANN, born 1877
and there was a girl named: Ettie M. Carmaham, b. 1866, in that 1880 Census.

In some Miami County Geneology website, there was a database that listed Christian BAUMANN as Head of Household, Census for 1880, Shelby County, OHIO, original Census page of 196B, Perry Township.

I'd also like a Death Certificate search for Christian BAUMANN and Ann Elizabeth GEMINN. But I only assume they died somewhere in OHIO. I don't really know if they did.

Charles F. Baumann wound up in the Northwest, where he married my Grandmother of Laura E. Roberts and she gave birth to my Dad, Robert De Lee Baumann, on 3 Feb 1921, in Eugene, Lane County, Oregon. My Dad changed his name legally to Robert De Lee Roberts in 1943.

I don't want to make this overly long, as I'm sure you are too busy. I greatly appreciate your efforts and will pay for Copies or whatever you need to accomplish my Lookup Request. Best Regards from Drew (Baumann) Roberts, kyack1@ibm.net

Since Joyce thinks the List is to quiet, here is a puzzle. Maybe somebody out there has an answer for me, or saw something, or whatever. John (Johannes) Steinmuller (Steinmiller, Steinmuller, Steinmueller), born 3/25/1798 in the Darmstadt, Hessen area, died 8/22/1884 in Riga. He came to Riga from Germany in 1851. He had with him his son Christian and daughter Armenia. Found them on the 1860 Census. No problem there. On the 1870 & 1880, there is another John Steinmiller, b.abt 1825 same area as the older, and wife Johanna b. abt 1839 from Baden. Then these two drop off the face of the earth. I found their children in Lucas County, Ohio. But lost them. Where are they?
And, the biggest puzzle of it all, who is the younger John? According to the Census they lived close by each other in Riga, came from the same area in Germany. Father and Son?
Neither Christian's nor Armenia's death certificate shows a mothers name. Where is she in all this. Did she not come with them?
Cemetery Records in Lenawee County have been researched, as well as the courthouse in Lenawee County. I have everything they have, as far as vital stats are concerned, with this Surname and its variations.
I am stumped and at a loss and dead end.
If anybody out there knows something, anything, please, let me know. The only thing I have not checked is land records, because I do not know anybody to look this up for me. They supposedly did own the farm they worked, as well as the land.
Thank you for any ideas,

Since she said that Simeon and Phoebe got married in Seneca Co., Ohio I am trying to figure out if he is related to Deliah SNOOK BRISH.

Drew BAUMANN ROBERTS asked for information on Charles Baumann and other Baumanns.

I can't make a connection to her Baumanns yet, but my Baumans go back to Joseph, born in Germany in 1818, married Edna Christina? My greatgrandmother, Eliza is one of his daughters. Many descendents still live in the Lucas, Wood and Defiance counties in Ohio. There is a Charles in our family who recently died in Napoleon, Ohio.

My records are in Family Tree Maker 4.0 and I can't figure out how to get those records on the internet. If you have any interest, I can send hard copies if you provide snail mail address. My sister has been researching census records and may have some information there too.

Please contact me if you can use this information.

Hi Maggie:
Looking for: VONDERLACK/FONDERLOCK
Leonard, Anna/Johanna parents. Married in the German Empire 12/1874 Children and ages as of 1894 divorce record: Catherine 19,Herman 16 Elizabeth13 Gertrude 11, and Hettie 6. I believe the Hettie may have been born in the states circa 1888. hettie died age 14 from Typhoid in Corning OH.
They came from Germany circa 1885. (per family report only) no documentation. Settled in Perry County Ohio. Year unknown. I have a divorce document from 1894 in Perry Co.
I'm sure they must have lived somewhere else prior to Perry Co.
I do not have any NATURALIZATION PAPERS on the parents.
I have a land record of sale in April 1894 from a Steven Ritz to a Anna Fenderlock. for property in Corning OH.
I have a copy of the Perry County Infirmary Records, and found LEWIS FONDERLACK. I think this is Leonard. As Leonard was disabled, supposedly died of TB somewhere. He supposedly left the States and went back to Germany after the divorce.
I need to know definite date of arrival to US, so that Germany can help me begin a search over there.
I have searched the series "Germans to America" without any success.
I have a marriage license for JOHANNA VOSSLER AND STEPHEN REITZ.
Johanna/Anna's maiden name was Vossler. She must have assumed her maiden name again after the divorce from Leonard, IF this is her. Must have married the guy she bought ground from.
I also have a marriage record of Elizabeth Fonderlack and Thomas Murphy dated may 01, 1902, and a birth record of a Lavora Murphy, mother Elizabeth Fonderlack/Murphy.
Perry Co. reports there are no death records for any Fonderlacks.
Ohio University couldn't find anything on them either.
I have written Dept of Mines in Ohio, they never responded back to me. Thought maybe I could get some employment dates at least.
Family rumor has it that Herman may have in an orphanage or some type of protectory for boys. ?????? I have written Catholic Diocese, they can't find anything either. I was going on the hunch of Catholic because Thomas Murphy and Eliz. Fonderlack were married in St Bernard's Catholic Church in Corning OH, however, it was probably Thomas that was Catholic as he was Irish.
I apologize for the length of this message, but didn't want you to look up anything I had already tried.
I am travelling to Perry Co in a couple of weeks, If you have any tips where I should look I would appreciate it.
