KELLEY, PRICE posted by Gail Kelley on Wednesday, January 1, 2003

Looking for my great-great grandmother's resting place. She was: Annie (Ann) PRICE KELLEY Born in 1841, she married to Philip Barton KELLEY in 1864, gave birth to her son, Thomas Price KELLEY on July 25, 1865, and died two days later from complications due to childbirth on July 27, 1865. Her parents were Michael and Catharine PRICE. They all lived in or around Findlay, Hancock County or Pleasant Township. I found Philip Barton Kelley's headstone at St. Michael's portion of Maple Grove Cemetery, but not Annie's. Thank you very much in advance. I have hit a dead-end on this search.

My grandfather Eber Franklin BERGMAN, was born in Hancock county in the 1870's. He was a school teacher in a small rural school house, location unknown, sometime in the 1890's. He went to work for the Ohio Oil Company. He had at least one brother, name unknown, and one sister Lydia BERGMAN, later married a BIBLER. Eber Franklin BERGMAN married Martha L. WEAVERLING and settled in Helena, Sandusky county, Ohio around the turn of the century. Eber's siblings may have lived in Deshler, Ohio and at least two nepher's Ralph BERGMAN and Lawrence BERGMAN lived in Michigan. I am trying to find out who Eber's parents were and where they might have come from.

BARNETTE, HOPKINS, SEXTON, SORBIE posted by Elinor Sorbie Sargent on Sunday, February 16, 2003

Seeking to gather information on a Joseph SORBIE who lived in Hancock County from 1834 onwards. I have the following information but am trying to trace any descendants from this branch of the SORBIE family. Info: In the 1850 Census for Ohio, Hancock County Union Twnshp Joseph SORBIE (aged 40) was a Farmer. Born in Scotland His wife: Mary Anne BARNETTE, 30 yrs of Age. Born in Pennsylvania children: **Mary Elisabeth 9 yrs Born in Ohio; **Geo. B. 5 yrs Born in Ohio; **Sarah A 4 yrs Born in Ohio; **Isaac B 2 yrs Born in Ohio; 1860 Census: Joseph is out of picture, possibly died within the past 5 years. Mary has remarried to an Arthur G SEXTON (43 Yrs) Born in Virginia **Mary is now 41 yrs. They have the following children: **David Sexton 14 yrs; **John Sexton 12 yrs; **Angeline Sexton 7 yrs; **Etta Sexton 4/12 yr; **Mary E Sorbie 19 yrs; **George B. Sorbie 16 yrs - died aged 18 yrs; **Sarah Sorbie 13 yrs; **Isaac Sorbie 11 yrs; **Quincy Sorbie 8 yrs - married Cortland Runnels HOPKINS - 23 September 1873 - Warsaw Ind. - children Minnie & Mabel - died aged 5 and 6 mths respectively; **David Sorbie 5 yrs; George Sorbie enlisted with the Coompany D 99th Infantry Ohio. He enlisted on 26 August 1862, and Died 17 Dec 1862 at Nashville Tennessee. George's Mother, Mary A Sexton filed claim in 1888 from the state of Indiana for government relief (Disability pension) since she was his mother and had no other source of income. (This leads me to believe that her second husband had possibly died.) There was a land grant for Joseph Sorbie in Hancock County Ohio, 9 January 1841, cash sale. I am particularly interested in any information you can provide on any of the Sorbies. To date I have been unable to retrieve any details about David or Isaac, who may have carried on the Sorbie line.

PAUL posted by Roger PAUL on Friday, February 28, 2003

John PAUL (Gr.Gr. Grandfather) was born in Md. in 1804, moved to Hancock Co. Ohio and married a Margarett from Ohio (Abt. 1831). More than likely she was from Hancock Co. and was Abt. 16-18 at the time They moved to Warsaw Ind. in 1857. I need their date of marriage, Margarett's maiden name, DOB, and parents names. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

BEAMER, BEEMER, GRUB, MILLS, WYNN posted by Barbara Mills on Friday, March 14, 2003

I am looking for information concerning John (b 1793) and Sarah Ann "Sally" MILLS BEAMER/BEEMER. I last found them in the 1850 Hancock Cty Census in Findlay Twp. Listed with them was Margaret Ann GRUB whom I assume is a recently married daughter. I know they were in Hancock Co. as early as 1844. However, after the 1850 census I have not been able to find any of these individuals. Sally MILLS (b ca 1794) is the oldest known child of Thomas and Hannah WYNN MILLS. As such, I believe it possible that she would have inherited the family bible when her father died about 1844. Any information concerning John, Sally or Mary Ann would be greatly appreciated. John and Sally had other children, but they were all out of the home by 1850 except for Margaret Ann.

FOLTZ, THOMA, VOLZ posted by Cindi Stine on Tuesday, April 8, 2003

Looking for any information (but especially pre-1870) info on the Conrad VOLZ (FOLTZ) family who I believe came to Jackson Township, Hancock Co., sometime between 1868 and 1870. Probably came from Erie, Sandusky, or Ottawa counties. Was married to Maria (Walburga) ELMER VOLZ who later was called Mary Foltz. They had the following children: Jacob, Catherine, John, Elizabeth, Frank, Adam, Conrad Jr., Michael Gage. Conrad Sr. died in 1871 of Typhoid, as did son Jacob and daughter Catherine. Maria (Mary) moved to Findlay and went on to marry Paul THOMA. Do you have any info or family records pertaining to the Conrad VOLZ family? I suspect that there are other FOLTZes in the area who may have been related to him, but cannot find the link which goes further back than 1868.
