JEFFERS, KIMBALL, LOW, STEWART posted by Scott Byrd on Thursday, May 3, 2001

I am looking for information on the several JEFFERS women who married in Jefferson County in the early 1800's. My 4th great-grandfather was William JEFFERS, who immigrated from Ireland in 1804 and lived in Jefferson County until approximately 1814-1817. The first individual was Anna JEFFERS, who married Richard LOW on 29 March 1815. The next one is Jean JEFFERS, who married Jesse STEWART on 22 August 1811. The final one is Rebecca JEFFERS, who wed Charles KIMBALL on 10 November 1816. All three of these women would likely have been born in Ireland. I believe Jesse STEWART and Charles KIMBALL were both residents of Warren Township in 1850, but I cannot verify this because I do not have access to the actual census records. Any help on these families would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance.

CRIMM, HUNTER, KNOWLTON posted by Rustin J. Funk on Thursday, May 3, 2001

I am an attorney in Marietta, Ohio I am preparing a partition action with regard to real estate situated in Washington County. The subject real estate was deeded to Charles Edward KNOWLTON, J. N. HUNTER and Marie H. CRIMM in 1937. I represent Deloris KNOWLTON, widow of Charles Edward KNOWLTON. I think J. N. HUNTER may have died resident of Jefferson County, perhaps of Rayland, that he died unmarried and left everything to his sister. Would you, or someone you could refer, be willing for a reasonable fee to search the probate records to see if the heirs of said J. N. HUNTER could be determined and maybe located. I don't know anything about Marie H. CRIMM, except she may have been from Jefferson County, or possibly Columbiana or Monroe Counties. If I get lucky with Mr. HUNTER, I may pursue her name further.

Joseph CAPSTACK, my 3gf, married Mary Jane COLEMAN in Cadiz in 1849 and is listed on the 1860 Jefferson County census; he was a veteran of the 157th OVI when he died in Quaker City 11 May 1896. Jonathan CAPSTACK married Emma RILEY 2 May 1846 and naturalized as a US citizen 28 Sep 1846 with testimony from William BARRON, presumably related to David but I can't prove it, yet. Any and all information related to these families much appreciated!
