Need to know the parents of Sarah (Sally) BRYAN who md Charles MILLER in Portage CO in 1816.  They were neighbors in Hudson TWP.  Charles MILLER was the son of Moses MILLER and Sarah HOLCOMB.  They came to Portage CO from Simsbury or Litchfield, Conn.  John BRYAN lived just a few houses away from the Miller's.  Think he is Sarah BRYAN'S parent.  Need to know if he was and if so, who his wife was.  Their son, Charles MILLER md in Portage CO in 1853 Christiana REESE.  Anyone with info on any of these families I would love to hear from and I would share any info I have.

BARBER posted by Don Barber on Friday, February 6, 1998

I am searching for information about the Barbers of Twinsburg. I have seen the History of Twinsburg. The BARBER family is descended from Russell Barber of VT, descended from Thomas BARBER Of CT. Stephen, B 1812 AND George, B 1817 were sons of Russell. But there were also Horace, b 1829, and Lewis Barber, who were supposed to be cousins of the others. Does anyone know more about these Barbers?

GILLETT, MASON posted by Al Dawson on Thursday, February 19, 1998

I've recently found that I am a descendant of Nathan GILLETT (1755-1835) and Lucy Harrison Gillett (1762-1825) who are buried in the cemetery in Tallmadge next to the library. Their daughter Charlotte Gillett - whose deatrh date was c. 1846 - married Elijah MASON of Middlebury - editor in 1825-1827 of the "Portage Journal" Their son Milton Arthur Mason (1846-1924) was a Civil War vet - wounded at Chickamauga - enlisted from Twinsburg, he is the Arthur Mason on the monument. Peter Holman of Twinsburg and I are trying to see if the Nathan G(illett?) Mason, same age - 18 - different company was his Twin brother. Milton's grandson Henry Werts Mason, born in Akron in 1895 was my maternal grandfather. After moving to Berea from NC in 1994 I started using WRHS Library to track the Masons which lead to Gilletts - they were from CT - descended from Nathan Gillett who came over on the "Mary and John" in 1630. I've written to the DAR and SAR in Simsbury CT to tell them their lost Rev War Gillett (Fife Major, 6 Conn Regt) has been found.
