Researching COIL line Mercer Co., OH: Nancy COIL b. 7 Aug 1865 Mercer Co., OH, married Joseph Henry BISEL 6 Jul 1886 OH (probably Mercer Co.), and died 22 Jul 1937 Mercer Co., OH. Death cert. lists father as John COIL b. Ohio and mother maiden name as Mary HUNDLEY b. Ohio. Have info on descendants and delighted to share.

HOOPER, NUNNERY posted by Linda Sorrell on Monday, March 16, 1998

William H. NUNNERY md. Olive Mary HOOPER before 1888 in Mercer County, OH. However, we can find no proof of this marriage. They had Edward James NUNNERY in 1888 and Grace Olive NUNNERY in 1890. According to my grandfather, Edward, his parents died in about 1900--leaving the orphans who "did odd jobs and wandered". This little family is now gone, and I would dearly love to find verification of marriage and death of the parents. They are supposedly buried in Montezuma--someplace. Any help would be greatly appreciated with this family.
