MAHAFFEY, MEHAFFEY, SNODGRASS posted by Bonnie Bunce on Saturday, May 31, 1997

Am looking for parents of James C. MEHAFFEY, who was born Feb., 1840, "near Cambridge, Ohio" according to his Civil War pension file. He was living near Little York, Warren Co., IL at the time he enlisted in the Union Army in 1862. From stories passed down in our family, he had brothers Sam and John, and sisters, Sadie, Beckie, Margaret and one other sister whose name we don't have. I believe sister Sadie was the "Sarah MAHAFFEY" who married Jackson Snodgrass in Warren Co. IL in 1849, since James C. Mehaffey, age 21, and John MEHAFFEY age 12, were residing in the household of Jackson SNODGRASS in the Warren Co. IL census. I think my g.grandfather James MEHAFFEY was a grandson of Samuel MEHAFFEY, who settled in Adams Township, Guernsey Co. OH in the 1820s, but need proof.

HAVERSTICK, HOVERSTACK, LEITH, SHARLOCK, SHERLOCK posted by Richard Pangburn on Saturday, May 31, 1997

In Wolfe's stories of Guernsey County, he recounts the traditions in the SHERLOCK or SHARLOCK family, that their ancestor came to study for the cloth, to fight for the British, then changed sides and fought for the Americans. I believe that this tradition, like most fam.traditions, was true at bottom, but the details were misconstrued over the years. I strongly believe that the JAMES SHERLOCK who was the pioneer founder of this family was the JAMES SHERLOCK of the first volume of my Indian Blood series. I have not yet encountered anyone who descends from this colorful family. Isn't there anyone out there who knows this story? I am also researching the LEITH family of the adopted Delaware, John LEITH. And the HOVERSTACK, HAVERSTICK, etc. connection.

SHERRY posted by Dave Sherry on Saturday, May 31, 1997

SHERRY Question on Irish Immigration Patterns in Eastern Ohio I was hoping someone might share their knowledge on Irish immigrants/immigration patterns in eastern Ohio in the period after the famine (1848 to early 1850s). My ancestor Arthur SHERRY arrived in Bellaire in 1854, according to land records, and I haven't had any luck tracing backwards from there. (I've focused on 1850 Censuses and the Glazer Irish Immigration books thus far.) Any thoughts would be appreciated! Please respond by email.
