SURNAMES: DIETRICH
Charles A. DIETRICH died in a Wellston Nursing Home in 1954. This is my husband's grandfather. We know where his grave is, but cannot find any other info regarding his stay in Wellston or how he came to be there. The funeral home was of no benefit other than letting us know where he died. He was born in 1864. Other than the fact that he married my husband's grandmother and they had 7 children. This is pretty much all we know of him as he left and never returned. Any help would be appreciated.

SURNAMES: COX, ELLISON, REDFEARN
I am looking for researchers of the COX family in Jackson Co, OH. Specifically for 1820-1844 time frame. I think my Samuel COX who later was in Dallas Co, MO and his wife Elizabeth and their children Solomon, Thomas, Samuel Benton, James Redfearn COX and Janis C were all living in Richland or Riley during that time.

SURNAMES: CRABTREE, GRAHAM
I am looking for information on the children of Thomas & Phoebe (nee GRAHAM) CRABTREE. The 1850 US Federal Census shows them living in Scioto Township of Jackson County, Ohio, however the others listed are confusing, as there is mention of a 2 year old male living with them. I would think it more likely this is a grandchild, but the census that year does not identify relationships. Also there is an older male who is 24 years old who's name is not ledgible. I believe it to be Lewis or something similar. The same is the case for the 2 yr old male.
