BARRETT, MORTON, SAYRS, SEARS, SING, SYNGE posted by Elizabeth E. Freeman on Thursday, January 1, 1998

I am endeavoring to trace the Jonathan SEARS/SAYRS (born in PA) family back to arrival in America. He married Susan/Susnnah SING/SYNGE (born in Chester Co.,PA). They are placed in Harrison Co., OH in 1809 when their third son was born. They were methodists; they had six children (Jonathan, Lemuel/Lamuel, George (born 5-8-1809 Harrison Co.), David (born 6-22-1815 Harrison Co.), Hannah, and Susan). He was a tanner by trade. They both died in Harrison Co. in 1839. George married Rachel BARRETT and is believed left Harrison Co. David married Margaret MORTON and they lived and died in Harrison Co. I have extensive informatoin on George Sears line. Am seeking information on any of the others. Thank you.

VANEMMON, WILLIAMS posted by Stan Wolfe on Thursday, January 1, 1998

Am trying to find ancestors of my g-grandfather William A. WILLIAMS and his wife, Catherine (VANEMMON). They were married on April 12, 1851 in Coshocton County, OH, and their son John Edward WILLIAMS was born in Newcomerstown in that county. It is thought that William A. WILLIAMS was born in Cadiz, Harrison County, OH. Their children went on to live in Pocahontas County, Benton County, and Lee County, Iowa. Haven't found any birth or death dates for William or Catherine. Any help in finding William A. WILLIAMS and/or Catherine VAN EMMON's Harrison County, Ohio connections is appreciated.

Samuel BEATTY was born abt 1824 in PA. On 14 Feb. 1850 he married Eliza Jane GIBSON in Harrison Co., OH. (Harrison Co., OH Marriage Records, Bk. C, pg 583). He appears with his new bride in the 1850 census, and in the 1860 census he appears as follows: Samuel Beatty, W M 26 born in PA Eliza Jane Beatty, W F 21, born in Holmes Co., OH John R.

Although there were *many* Beattys living in Harrison County, OH in the 1850's, I can not document Samuel's parentage. Does anyone have *any idea* who his parents were?

GREEN, HATTON posted by Susan Kellar Ratcliffe on Thursday, January 22, 1998

Richard HATTON and Sarah GREEN (possibly the sister of Allen GREEN, husband of Mary) were married in Barnesville, Belmont Co. and eventually moved onto Henry County, Iowa. They had a son, Frank HATTON, who became US Postmaster General.

COX, HAVENER, WALLAR posted by Carlene Johnson on Sunday, January 25, 1998

Seek information on Zebediah COX Jr., son of Zebediah COX Sr. who died in 1825 Harrison Co. OH, naming in his will wife Charlotte, sons Zebediah, Elijah, youngest son Harrison, daughter Ziporah and Sheridan, elder son of Zebediah. The 1830 census, Archer Twp. shows a Zebedee COX b. 1780-90 with a female of same age and a family of 3 younger males and 5 younger females.
