GOUGH, GOW posted by Pamela Gow on 07/05/98
GOW, Chester. Looking for info on a Chester GOW, b abt 1905-1912 to William Purvis/Purves Gow and Minnie M. GOUGH. He had a brother, Howard William, who was born in Youngstown on 1 Jul 1909. I have located descendants of Howard, but no one seems to know anything about Chester. I heard my father talk about "cousin Chester" when I was little. I know that Chester died quite some time ago but I don't know where or when. Can anyone help?

MCAULAY, MCCAWLEY posted by Jenny Hawkins on 07/11/98
I am trying to find a McAULAY (or variant spelling) family who came from Scotland to Ohio after 1855. My g-g-grandmother Elizabeth married in Salem, Columbiana Co, OH in 1869. Her father was Francis (b abt 1813) and mother Margaret (b abt 1812). There were two other daughters, Janet and Margaret, but they may not have survived (this family had a high infant mortality). I also know that between 1907 and 1914 there were a daughter living in Salem, a daughter living in New Philadelphia and a son living in Youngstown. Is it possible to track them down? Was there a census in this period which might make it possible to find the son?

GODA posted by Peggy Rasche on 07/16/98
I am looking for descendants of Joseph GODA who lived in the Youngstown area in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Joseph immigrated to the United States from Slovakia in 1893.

BRINZA, KAPUSTA, YURICH posted by John Gingerich on 07/20/98
Searching for descendants of "Kathi" YURICH, who died in the Youngstown area in the early to mid 1930's. Her maiden name was probably KAPUSTA. She had a sister, Teresz KAPUSTA, who was married to Karl BRINZA. Not certain of spelling of "Kathi's" first name (pronounced KAHTI). I don't know her husband's name, but she had a daughter named Anna.

COOK, MORROW, SWEM posted by Nancy Dewey on 07/23/98
Searching for father of Sarah COOK, b 3 Nov 1823 and Daniel COOK b 1828. Sarah married Samuel MORROW on 15 Jun 1843. Children were Lauren S.; Rachel E., b Apr 1853; John D., b Nov 1847; Rebecca, b Apr 1853; Phoebe, b Aug 1855; Levi S., b Feb 1860; Charles, b Oct 1863; Mary T., b May 1865; and Lowell, b Apr 1870. I believe that John D. COOK is possibly their father since Sarah's and Daniel's ages match the ones on the 1840 census. Sarah said Rynear SWEM was her uncle. Please contact if you have any info which would help me know who is their father.
