SURNAMES: ARMSTRONG, KERR, KARR, KAAR
I am tracing my Great Grandfather, Harry Carpenter ARMSTRONG. I believe that his birthname is Henry, and that his parents are William ARMSTRONG and Sarah KERR of Scioto Township, Jackson County. He was born in August of 1853 or possibly 1854. Family myth says he was orphaned, lived with an Aunt for awhile and then headed west. He ended up returning to the Midwest and married Emily Ann DEMAY of Detroit where they resided until they died in the 1920s. His death certificate has proved impossible to find...which would give a clue who his parents were. I do know that he was born in Ohio...and so were his parents. Is anyone researching these families or has knowledge? Are there any historians/genealogists who might help locate his birth certificate or perhaps his parents gravesites?

SURNAMES: JONES, LEWIS, EDWARDS, DAVIS
UPDATE: I am looking for information on David D JONES, born c. 1830 in Wales (possibly died in March of 1917), and his wife Margaret LEWIS, born 1825 in Wales and died on 11 Aug 1892. Their children were William David JONES, Daniel JONES, Ada JONES EDWARDS (married Rees EDWARDS) and Sarah Jane JONES DAVIS (married James J.B. DAVIS). Any information on David in particular would be most welcome. I am hoping to find the exact date and place of his birth, the date and place of his death, what his middle initial stands for, when he immigrated to the US, and the names of his parents (and where they came from in Wales), but I have hit a dead end. He and Margaret may have been involved in the Moriah community, if that is of any use. Here is my genealogy, in Medieval Welsh fashion: My name is Stephen Jones, and I am the son of David Blaine Jones, son of Blaine Burlile Jones, son of Russell Arthur Jones, son of William David Jones, son of David D Jones.

SURNAMES: CHAPMAN, FILLINGER
Searching for Helen CHAPMAN FILLINGER of Oak Hill. My mother, Connie Sue RAMEY, and her identical twin, Bonnie Lou RAMEY, were born and orphaned at the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Huntington, W VA. in Sept. 1953. Gertrude RAMEY took them into her care at 5 days old, and gave them their names. The only proof they have of their birth is the bassinet cards from the hospital which read (Female) BATES I and (Female) BATES II, thier weights and lengths, and Dr. Ratcliff. They later retrieved information that their mother's name was Helen Juanita CHAPMAN. They lived at the Ramey Home until they were 19, and no family ever looked for them, (to their knowledge). Any information was kept confidential, and anytime “the twins” would ask Gertrude questions, she would get irate and deter them from asking. We wonder if Gertrude knew their parents, or may have even been related somehow, explaining why she took this family secret to her grave. After writing a Plea in 2001 for the Herald Dispatch, I received information via an “Anonymous” typed letter that my grandmother, Helen CHAPMAN had my Mother and Aunt when she was in her 30's (in 1953). The person says she already had two other daughters; the oldest (maybe named Judy) about 5 or 6 years old in late 1952, the younger daughter was 3 or 4, but they can’t remember her name. The person also wrote that Helen lived with her mother and father in a house on Buffalo Creek Road in Lawrence County, Ohio up until 1953, (the year the twins were born) when the house became empty. The person says they "heard" Helen CHAPMAN was working in or owned a small grocery store in Oak Hill, Ohio. They "heard talk to this effect as late as 1985." Since receiving this letter, I have now found that Helen (FILLINGER?) owned Osbournes's Grocery in Oak Hill up until the mid 80's, and she died in October 1986. She ran the grocery with one of her daughters, and was possibly married to Dwight N. Fillinger, "Dyne". He is also deceased, and I believe both are buried at Fairmount Cemetery. If anyone has any information if this is my grandmother, Helen, could you please email me? We can keep the relationship Anonymous if you wish.

I looked on a site for Ridgewood and it spelled his name DECKARD. He would have been twenty two. Could you see if he married in Jackson county and who. I would assume it would be between 1905 and 1909. Also he may have had children born before and after his death.

SURNAMES: ADAMS
I have been trying to sort out the George W. and George M. Adams families from Jackson and have not been very successful. George M. Adams was the first Mayor of Jackson in 1847 when it was incorporated. He also was County Auditor and Justice of the Peace for a number of years. I have record of George M. ADAMS, Clerk in Store, living with Joseph and Cornelia ADAMS KILLEN in Jackson, Jackson County, Ohio at the time of the 1880 census. He is listed at the age of 76 making his birth year 1804. He was born in Va. and we beleive it was Winchester. Can you help me with at least a date of his death. I have checked on line sources available without success and would like to have this information in hopes of locating an obituary. Since he was an active City father, I would think that he might have a very informative obituary. Any information that you can supply would be greatly appreciated. [Editor's note: He has info about George M. Adams from Robert Ervin's book "Jackson County, Its History and Its People" and "History of Lower Scioto Valley".]
