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.

JAMES JARDINE: I am searching for any info on a James Jardine. His address in 1894 was Toledo, Ohio. He was a honored vet from the Civil War. I have many papers on him, but very little to go on. His siblings were Petter, Graham, Robert, and Catherine. He was born in Scotland in 1837. He died on Dec 9, 1922 in Sandusky, Ohio in the Ohio Veterans home. We have very little to go on, and it appears as if this perticular family dropped of the face of the earth. We have no knowledge of James where abouts between 1865 and 1894 when he is reported to been living in Toledo befor he was admitted to the Home the first time. He was discharged from the home in 1895, and readmitted in 1905. It is reported that he was then living in Cincinnati. Any help would be appreciated. Kris Jardine

Looking for any info on an Abraham Lee. Only info we have is he was married to Sara and had a child named Thomas. Abraham died Sept 27, 1855 and Sara died January 1859. We can find no information before this point. We are positive they did live in Wood County but not sure if they were born there.

Trying to find out more about William Winup. He was in the Civil War about 1864 and is listed on the 1860 Census for Wood County. Look for children and spouse to link to William Winup, my great grandfather.
