MARQUIS, LOWRY:  The 5th child of William MARQUIS and Mary LOWRY was William MARQUIS Jr.
born 11 Jan 1838, d. 6 Sep 1838 at Meigs Co., OH, and buried there?  The
family lived on a farm in So. Beaver Co., PA, and from that one would
assume since Mary had five living children 3 thru 10 yrs of age, that
the children may have traveled with her.  Also, one might assume that
there was a relative living in the Meigs area.  I would so much
appreciate any of you root diggers helping me find the place of burial
for William Jr. and/or family ties. Since Mary was born in Ireland, she
had family and this is the closest that I can come to anyone.

BROWN, BECK, MCKNIGHT:  I am searching for the parents of Samuel B. BROWN,born 1821 in Ohio, died 
(was murdered) Jan. 1853, possibly in Meigs or Athens Co. Samuel B. married 
Harriet McKNIGHT, born 1819 in Virginia, died 1893 in Ohio. This couple had 
four children who reached adulthood and all of them moved to southwest Missouri 
in the late 1860s. I have the names of these children and their spouses for 
anyone who would like them.

Family tradition is that Samuel B. was killed due to his participation in the 
Underground Railroad but we have never found a written account of this event. 
Does anyone have such an account of these activities in Meigs county?

Another thing in our family which has puzzled us for almost 100 years is a 
strange phrase in our family Bible...." John F. BECK was". Who is John F. BECK, 
and how does he fit into this family? Could he be the grandfather of Samuel B.
on the maternal side? Who, oh, who has the answers to our puzzles? How can I 
thank you for helping me?

WAGGONER, GREGORY:  Researching WAGGONER, GREGORY surnames in Meigs Co., OH, approximately 
1860-1869.  I believe my gg grandfather, Oliver C. WAGGONER, wife, Sarah 
Katherine GREGORY and child may have been living with other WAGGONER or 
GREGORY relatives in Meigs Co., OH at the time the 1860 census was taken.  
They were married in 1857 in Vinton Co., then I can't find them until 1870 in 
KY, though I know they resided in OH prior to 1870.  I also believe Oliver, 
probably born in MD, migrating through Greene Co., PA, was acquainted with 
Enos CHANEY, who was a resident of Meigs Co. at about the same time.  Please 
e-mail me if you have any info regarding these individuals or surnames.

REEVES, IRWIN:  Looking for information on the Reeves.  There were too may Williams, Solomons,
& Richards to keep track of.  I am a ggggranddaughter of Solomon Reeves & Elizabeth
Irwin in Scipio Twp.  He was born 1805, as a twin to Lydia (there were a bunch of
those, too.)  Their son, Jerimiah, then Winfield T., then Gerald L. Reeves is my
line.  I believe Walter (b. 1652 in Burlington, NJ - d. 1696) married Ann E. Howell
was our beginning in this country.  I'm thinking - William, William Jr., Solomon,
Richard, then my Solomon & Jerimiah is my lineage, but not positive.  Jerimiah and
W. T. are buried in Wells Cemetery there.
