CORNELL posted by Bill Wright on Tuesday, June 3, 1997

Who were Tunis and Peter CORNELL? They were in Jefferson Co., Ohio in 1799 when they signed a petition to Congress. Tunis' will is recorded in Jefferson Co. in 1814 and Peter's estate was probated in 1817. Are these the same Tunis and Peter CORNELL who were taxpayers in Hunterdon Co., NJ in 1790 and earlier? Are they related to the William and Peter CORNELL in the 1790 census of Fayette Co., PA? Are they related to the Cornell's of Coshocton Co., Ohio (1820s and following)? My hunch is that Tunis and Peter are brothers. Tunis is the father of William and Peter of Fayette Co., PA and Peter of Fayette is the forebear of the Coshocton Cornells.

BECKETT posted by Bill Beckett on Saturday, June 7, 1997

I am a descendent of John BECKETT (~1770 u 1850) of Virginia, who moved with his family to Ohio from Berkeley Co., Virginia in about 1811. They first settled in Warren Township, Jefferson County, but moved to Belmont County before 1820 and lived in Goshen Township until about 1832, when they moved to Green Township, Monroe County. His children lived in Monroe, Noble and Guernsey Counties. There were several other BECKETT families who came into Jefferson County in the early 1800AEs. One was William BECKETT (~1770 - 1814) who came in 1802 and lived in Warren Township, Jefferson Co. His children lived in Jefferson, Morgan and Washington Counties. Another was Humphrey BECKETT (1782 -1855) who arrived in Ohio in about 1812 and located in Belmont Co. His presumed children lived mainly in Belmont County. I am trying to determine whether these Beckett's were related and where they came from. I am interested in trading information with any one researching them or allied families.

I am looking for the college in Richmond, Salem, Township, Jefferson, Co. that my great grandfather, Williams LEWIS might have attended in the mid to late 1850's. He was born in Tuscarawas County, Ohio on 13 Apr 1839, and according to a personal history in his own handwriting he went to college in Richmond, Jefferson County, Ohio at the age of 17 or 18. I would like to contact that college to see if they have in their archives any record of him. His parents were very orthodox Methodists, so this may have been a Methodist College. Thank you for your help.
