ARMSTRONG, BROWN, CAMPBELL, REYNOLDS posted by Maggie Brown Moerdyke on Monday, May 4, 1998

Am working on the BROWN family tree and have indeed worked with Barbara Krooman and Pat who have listed queries on these exact pages - am asking the following: Levi Walter BROWN (certainly a well-known, yet not much written on person in the history of Fulton Co., Wauseon) - need to know where his general store was located and during what years it operated (might have been Burlington?) Any information on Levi Walter BROWN'S parents Benjamin BROWN and Ruth REYNOLDS (I have births,deaths, marriage and location - just interested in tidbits) Daniel BROWN and Sallie Last Name Unknown - parents of Benjamin BROWN - need to confirm death, marriage and birth dates, children, spouses, and dates Daniel BROWN and ? - parents of Daniel BROWN listed above - no idea if they came along with other family members 1835/37 from Vermont Any information you can send my way would be greatly appreciated. Maybe there would be a few newspaper abstracts informative enough to fill in the missing links. Any articles, inscriptions, biographical sketches of the Levi BROWN family please send my way. Also, do you have anything on my great uncle Reas CAMPBELL - he married my great aunt and favorite aunt Ruth ARMSTRONG BROWN (CAMPBELL) who donated her home for the museum - I have absolutely nothing but dates, where he is buried, where he died, not even place of birth is listed, and that he was the retired postmaster (what years?) with two children from a previous marriage. No names given, no ex-spouse amongst all the personal papers I have here - can you help me out, please. Most appreciatively and thank you,

surname of former Fulton County resident: James KAHLE and his wife, Mary GATES (it is my understanding they were buried in the Amboy Township Cemetery in 1889 and 1886, respectively.) I would like any information available on these family members. thank you.


My great-grandfather, Robert Irvine MCKIBBIN, was born in Wauseon on May 1, 1839. He was the son of Thomas MCKIBBIN and Eleanore BAYES MCKIBBIN from Holmes County. He had a brother, Thomas B., a brother, William, and sisters: Mary, Margaret, Catherine and Jane. Robert and William served with Co K, 38th Infantry in the Civil War. My grand- father, Royal Bird MCKIBBIN "Roy" was born in Wauseon on April 27, 1878. Robert MCKIBBIN married Nancy Jane FAIRCHILD in Wauseon on March 3, 1864; they were married by the Rev. Boyer. Roy MCKIBBIN married Beatrice HUGHES of Beaverton, MI and they had two children: Juanita Mae MCKIBBIN COLGAN (no children) and Hugh Robert MCKIBBIN, a graduate of the Unites States' Naval Academy at Annapolis and a career naval aviator. Hugh is still living and resides with his wife Eleanor in Virginia. Hugh had two children: Hugh Robert MCKIBBIN, Jr., a graduate of the United States' Military Academy, who was killed-in-action in Vietnam in 1968. I am his daughter, and I have three children and live in Texas. I have extensive information on the family; however, I wish to find out more about my great-grandfather's brothers, Thomas B. and William, and their descendants. I have the obituary of Thomas B., who had one son, R.B.,by Caroline HIGHSHEW, and six daughters by Elizabeth WEIR. I also wish to find out where Thomas MCKIBBIN I was born and where he married Eleanor BAYES. Any information would be appreciated.

BLAIR, BOURQUIN posted by Bill Bourquin on Tuesday, June 30, 1998

I'm trying to find out what I can about my grandfather Ira BOURQUIN. He owned a grocery store and tile company in Archbold in the 1912-1938 time frame. He is a real "mystery man" to me and I'd like to find out more about him. The Buckeye newspaper may have a "Bourquin Grocery" ad during that time frame.
