SURNAMES: GEORGE, FUNK, BROWN, BOAL/BOALS
Mary FUNK married Isaac GEORGE in 1866 and they resided in Jackson Twp, Vinton County. I suspect Mary's parents were Joseph and Sarah Miller FUNK, dying in 1840-1850 and 1839-1840, respectively, in Falls Twp, Hocking County. Insight or correction is appreciated! Isaac and Mary had among their children William Ansel GEORGE in approximately 1869. Vinton County records show he applied himself for a marriage license for himself and Dolly BROWN in 1898, they married within that week. Unfortunately there are two Sarah BROWNs at about this time, apparently Dolly was a nickname. One Sarah BROWN was of family of Daniel E. and Sarah M. BROWN in Jackson twp, on same page in 1880 census as Isaac's family including William Ansel GEORGE. That census indicates she was born in 1876. Another Sarah BROWN was of family of Thomas J and Mary A. BROWN of Falls twp, Hocking County, apparently born 1877 per that census. Later censuses show My Great grandmother to have been born in 1877. Once married Sarah and William resided in Starr Twp, Hocking County. Did he marry his neighbor or marry a Hocking County girl and agree to live in a different twp, from what either had before? (or maybe someone else not in area in 1880?)
