HENRY, ZBANEK posted by Carolyn Sagar Backe on Tuesday, January 9, 2001

Having just received the death certificate for my gr-grandmother Mary Letitia, it states that she was born in Steubenville, Jefferson Co, on November 18, 1875, to John HENRY and Irene (Unknown). I would desperately love to find out any information on this family - I do know that father John had a sister named Victoria, and that Mary had siblings by the name of Kate H., Ed, and Goldie (believed to have died young). Mary would marry up in Seneca Co. in 1894, but can't find any trace of the rest of the family in that area. I do have a photo of John HENRY taken about mid to late 1920's, so he was still alive at that point. Sister Kate would marry Joseph ZBANEK from Iowa. I would also appreciate any help in determining mother Irene's maiden name.

I am looking for the parents of Lemuel WATTS. He was born abt 1800-1807 probably in the area of Washington County, PA, Jefferson, Harrison or Belmont County in Ohio. William WATT & wife Eleanor, took up land in Harrison County, Ohio, abt 1807. The land document says they were from Washington County, PA. William and Eleanor might be Lemuel's parents. Also found reference to a William Watt being born in that area abt 1775, son of Samuel Watt. Cross Creek Cemetery, in Washington County, PA, has a Samuel Watt, who died 17 Jan 1805, ae 66 yrs. Could he be the father of William? Any help would be greatly appreciated,

CLENDENING, HOUSEHOLDER posted by Karlene White on Wednesday, January 31, 2001

HOUSEHOLDER, CLENDENING Looking for family/info on Harry Householder, my Ggrandfather. His mother died when he was young and he was raised by some of his mother's family. During this time, he used the surname Clendening. The closeset I can come to a birthdate is early to mid 1880s. I have a story book of his in which is inscribed: "Bought December 24, 1898" & "Harry Clendening Knoxville Ohio Jeff Co March 22, 1900" The 1900 penmanship is very ornate so at that time I imagine him to be in his late teens. He married Blanche Klingaman in Richland Co WI and their daughter Lucile was born in 1913. They returned for a time to OH, possibly Jefferson Co, as my grandmother graduated high school in OH. Lucile was married in IL to Earl Nesbitt in 1931. Harry had a sister and 1-maybe 2-brothers. One brother settled in WV. Can anyone help? Will share info with a connection. Thanks.

MCCOLLOUGH, MYERS, NESSLEY posted by Mary Lou McCollough-Eaton on Wednesday, January 31, 2001

Trying to locate the burial sites in Jefferson Co. for William MCCOLLOUGH b. 16 Dec 1786 md. Elizabeth NESSLEY 8 Dec 1818, d/o Jacob NESSLEY and Nancy MYERS. Elizabeth (NESSLEY) McCOLLOUGH b.c. 1800 d. 1879. William McCOLLOUGH d. 28 Nov 1857. They had 7 children: Jacob Nessley McCOLLOUGH , John McCOLLOUGH, Esther McCOLLOUGH, Samuel Nessley McCOLLOUGH, Willian G. McCOLLOUGH, Nancy Elilzabeth McCOLLOUGH and Mary A. McCOLLOUGH. Believe children used the spelling of surname as McCULLOUGH for some unknown reason. They were living in Saline Twp. when William made his will, have copy. Believe the only ones bur. in Jefferson Co. were William, the father; Elizabeth, the mother and 2 sons, Samuel N. and William G. The family owned many acres of land in various locations. The McCOLLOUGH home was around the mouth of Yellow Creek. Have checked "Tombstone Inscriptions and Family Records" by Esther Powell. None of the above are shown in the book. I suspect they had a privately owned family plot on their land. Does anyone know where they are buried? William was my g,g,g, Uncle and was a son of John & Esther (Gamble) McCollough who died in Harrison Co., Ohio bur. Crabapple Cem. Wheeling Twp. Belmont Co., OH. Any help greatly appreciated, all e-mails will be answered.
