Date: 29 Aug 1997 From: D. Dunham Searching: OWEN, MCCASKY, SHORTESS, SMITH
I am looking for information about Levi OWEN, from Wales, born 1744. He settled in Rye Twp., later Wheatfield. He was married to Anne SMITH. I know that they had a daughter named Margaret, born 1770, who married Alexander SHORTESS. Margaret died 24 Jan, 1815. Alexander SHORTESS was born 25 Feb 1769. His parents were Thomas and Mary SHORTESS. I have found the name Shortess in some records and it states that they worked at a sawmill. If anyone has census records from 1810, 1820 and 1830 for Perry County, I believe they are mentioned there. I have not found them in any of our local libraries. I am also searching for Frederick MCCASKY also of Wheatfield Twp. Pg. 306 in the 1830 Perry County Census. He was married to Magdalene and they had a least one child, Barbara BORN 2 April 1812. MCCASKY was also in Sawmills. Barbara McCasky married John SHORTESS on 1 Oct 1833. Seems they should be the ones I am looking for, since it would really be a coincidence that they were all in the same place and not be my ancestors. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
