After graduating, he returned to his native town, and engaged in mercantile business, dealing in groceries, glassware and crockery, and has achieved a success which speaks well for his ability, judgment and fair dealing. His reputation in financial circles is one of the best, and in local politics he is among the formost, being an influential worker in the Democratic party in his vicinity.

Hello, My name is Tina Dowhanek. I am looking for information on relatives dating back many years. I am trying to trace the Carrick line (my father's family).My dad's aunt gave me his Great Grandfather's name and his wife's name. That was all she could remember. I do have the place and date of birth of his son (my dad's grandfather). I was doing research on the internet and entered Abraham Carrick ( my dad's great grandfather) and came up with a goldmine of info if the Abraham Carrick I found is my relative. The best part is that the one I found on the web and the one I have in my info as fact both have spouses named Elizabeth Dumond. (I find it hard to believe that there are 2 Abraham C. that each married Elizabeth D.) One more interesting bit of info is this Abraham Carrick died in the same place that my dad's grandfather was born. My question is.. Is there some way I can find out if Abraham Carrick on the internet.. that was born about 1825 in Stark Co. OH. and died in Portage Twp. Wood Co. OH. and was married to Elizabeth Dumond.. is my Abraham Carrick? Is there a survived by line on his gravestone or in the county records? Do I have to pay for this info? I live in Canada. How do I access this info? Please HELP! Sincerely, Tina Dowhanek
