I just got back from Scioto Ohio where I found that John and Margaret Calloway sold land to Isabelle and Middleton Harmon. I was wondering how John and Margaret Calloway are related to Isabelle Calloway/Callaway Harmon. Both the Callaway and Harmon families came from first Virginia then to Maryland/Delmarva and then to Ohio. Does anyone have any information on them and how they are related. I have Isabelle's parents as Thomas [PeterIII, Peter Jr., Peter], from Delaware. The Callaway Family Association has lots of information on both the Peter and Joseph Lines, but first I need to know how Isabelle is related to John. Thanks so much.

Comments:
I have this family posted as a family tree on Ancestry.com, user name shgire. I am looking for information that can prove Alexander's parentage. He was born 1775-79, I believe in PA, although some evidence says Scotland. He married Mary Kerr in the late 1700s and moved to Ross County, Ohio where they had their family. They moved to Madison County, IN in 1820-21. Mary died there in 1821 and he remarried, and survived until 1848. Can anyone provide more information that would help me with his ancestors?
Thanks,
Sharon

Hello,
I am attempting to find the date of date of death for Ann Elizabeth Armstrong. From the census records, it appears that she died sometime after 1870, and before 1872. She was married to William M Porterfield by Methodist Rev B.N. Sphar in 1854 in Ross County. In 1870, she, along with her husband, and children Lizzie, Mary, Charles, William Jr, and Amelia were living in Chillicothe Ward 1.
In 1880, it appears that she has died, and William has remarried Sarah Jane Collins, on 8 Oct 1871.
Thank you for any assistance that you may provide.

Comments:
Hello:
I am trying to dig into the family history, and have come to a stopping point with my great-grandparents. Am hoping that you can help me find out who the other members of their family were.

Marmaduke Wells (Apr. 10, 1834 - Feb. 18, 1885)
Minerva McFarland Wells (May 27, 1847 - Jan. 25, 1930)

Minerva is buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery in Chillicothe, and I beleive Marmaduke is as well. However, haven't been able to locate his gravesite, it should be in the Soldier's Circle area since he was a veteran of the Civil War.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Surnames I am Researching CARSON
Comments:
My 3rd gg William CARSON was born in PA in 1776 and died in Scioto Twp, Ross Co, OH in 1846. He was married to Margaret Beattie (1785-1869).
His father's name was also William Carson. So my 4th gg came to America from Ireland in 1773, lived in PA then moved with his family to Ohio in the early 1800s. I am trying to document WHICH of the many William Carsons was my 4th gg. I THINK it was William Carson (1745-1823) married to Isabella Gilmore (1747-1811) and a monument with their names, dates...their son Hugh and his wife and 5 of their children. BUT I also found a *recopied* (typed) version of an obit from the Chillicothe, OH newspaper for William Carson which gives a slightly different birth date and death date of 1819 rather than 1829. I haven't been able to find an original of the obit to see whether these are two different William Carsons...or perhaps my Aunt who retyped it from a copy she had back in the 1930s had merely made a typo. The obit was not very helpful since it did not give a wife's name nor the name of the children. It was mostly a "sermon" . Would someone have a way to find out whether there were two different William Carsons in Ross County...one who died in 1819 and one who died in 1829...or if the dates were merely typos and it was the same man. I also found articles from an old Chillicothe newspaper about the huge fire that destroyed so much of the town, including a business owned by William Carson.
I would be very willing to send money to cover any expenses that would be involved in getting this information. I am sitting at a brick wall until I can document whether William and Isabella Gilmore Carson are indeed my direct line...or if it was a different William Carson that I can't find any records for...including a wife's name.

I have verified his presence in his area through the dead letter lists in the Chilllicothe newspaper of the time. The Denslows had left by 1807. I'd like to find whatever land records there are of their presence. Any advice is helpful. Also anyone who knows the records and would conduct the research for a fee is welcome ego contact me. The name has been spelled in various ways: Danzlo, Danslow, Dunslow, Dinslow, Denslaw, etc. as well as Denslow.

Also a son Benjamin Denslow died in the area as an infant. Another son, also named Benjamin, was born in the area c1807.

I'm finding very little information on Elijah Roberts , my 2d Great grandfather. I found the marriage info with Mary Ann Hickle in 1828 but his birth could be either 1791 or 1806 and his death is either 1836 or 1839 depending on who you want to believe. If his Father is William Roberts the 1830 Coltrain Census shows an Elijah Roberts as a seperate entry from William Roberts which would be presumably correct with Elijah being married in 1828. I can't find any birth or death info on Elijah Roberts , he was 33 or younger when he died.

I'm stuck on a Jane Shoemaker who married Samuel Toops in Ross County, OH on 13 Sep 1827. I haven't seen what information exists for this marriage record such as witnesses, etc. I have yet to find parents for Jane.

Some of the Shoemakers in Ross County at the time were children of a David Shoemaker, but haven't linked Jane to him or anybody else.

Jane probably would have been born in the 1790s. She may have died by 1850, because in the 1850 US Census for Ross County, Samuel's wife is listed as Cristina. I have found no marriage record for a Samuel Toops to a Cristina.

My Uncle Edwin R. Hales died 14 Jul 1980 at age 69 in the Adena Regional Medical Center, 272 Hospital Road, Chillicother, Ross Co., Ohio. My father said that he is in a unmarked (pauper's) grave in a Chillicothe cemetery but did not know which one. He was there about 32 years ago. Uncle Ed has a tombsone in the Millville Cemetery in shelby, Orleans, NY next to his first wife and other family members. I have searched our local papers and there wasn't an obituary published.

I am a volunteer for our local county site www.rootsweb.com/~nyorlean and know how much work our dedicated team has put into our site.

I'm willing to pay a modest fee for this information.

Comments:
I am descended from Lawrence Shepherd (b.1737, d.1842) through his son, Abraham, who was apparently the only one of 14 children who chose to stay in Fluvanna Co. VA when Lawrence and the rest of his family migrated to Ross Co. OH in 1809. My mother and cousin, both very good family genealogists, have tried to determine who Lawrence's parents were and where he was born, but have run into a dead end, as I have. We know that he came from Loudoun Co. VA to Fluvanna in about 1787. Records indicate that he was living in the Loudoun Co. area as early as the 1760’s. Does anybody out there know anything more about Lawrence?

I am decended from Denard P. Noles (alternate spellings of Knowles and Knoles). According to Ancestry.com he was born in Ross County Ohio on. 12 december 1816, but parents unknown. My Grandmother told me that Clarissa Knowles Riggin (Mr. Noles' dsughter) was one-half Native American (perhaps Shawnee). Because Mr. Noles wife (Clarissa Maddox Noles) has parents listed and doesn't appear to be a Native American, I am wondering if Mr. Noles was a Native American? Are there local or state documents or resources to research this possibility.

Edgar Craig (1884-1968#,
great grandfather, John Corwin Craig #1853-1907),and
his father, Aaron Platter Craig 1825.

Then I need some confirmation on those who came before Aaron.
I believe the line proceeds as follows and that all of these people died in Ross County. Can you help me find information?

John Craig, estimated 1795-1841
Charles Craig, estimated 1774-1839
Alexander Craig, estimated 1769-1817
William Craig, estimated 1750-1805

I believe they were all born in Northern Ireland, or perhaps, Pennsylvania.

Surnames I am Researching Wilson
Comments:
I am researching a Zachariah Taylor Wilson born circa 1850. He was my paternal great-grandfather.

I believe he may have been the Zachariah Wilson shown in the 1850 Fed Census under the household of James and Elizabeth Wilson. My Zachariah
believed his mother's maiden name may have been 'Packer/Packard' however this may not be true. Both his father and mother were born in Ohio, although he led ppl to believe they were born in New York. I am not sure if James or Elizabeth are his parents first names, however Zachariah did marry my great-grandmother 'Nancy M Nichols' in 1871.
They had several children, four of which I believe lived to adulthood.
My grandmother was Bess Mary Wilson born in May of 1885 in Marietta, Ohio.
I believe Zachariah and Nancy Wilson were estranged at his death, probably before 1908, possibly 1906.
If this is my grandfather, then he had a brother Edward and Charles, however I cannot find any more information on any of them.

Thank you,
Cynthia Young

The family relocated to DeWitt Co., IL where they remained, and this is where the father, Joseph Gardner died, and was buried at Rucker Chapel Cemetery. Wife, Jane then returned to Ohio where she resided with daughter Eliza the remainder of her years. Eliza apparently had already married Lewis Johnson when the family relocated, and she remained behind with her husband and family in Ohio. I believe Eliza to have been born about 1829 in either Ross or Madison County, Ohio. This has been a very difficult research for me. I hope someone may be able to enlighten me with some clues.

Comments:
Does anyone have a copy of the original name change documents for William Bussard Franklin?

Mr. William Bussard did in fact initiate a name change in 1840. During this time period personal matters such as name change and divorce were routinely introduced before the General Assembly. According to the index to the 1840 Senate Journal, the matter of Bussard’s name change was House Bill 231. Original documentation of this bill, should appear in State Archives Series 1217: Printed bills and acts, 1835-1996.

Comments:
An ancestor, William Pierce, was born in Ohio in or near 1805, and died in Iroquois County, Illinois in 1866. I am looking for background on William Pierce. I do not know where in Ohio he came from, but William apparently had a brother named David. Indications are that David (born 1821?) was a son of Thomas Pierce, and that he came to Illinois from Ross County, Ohio. I know that Pierce is a common name, and I cannot be sure if William is part of the same family as the David who is identified as coming from Ross County. Still, it is all I have to go on. Any suggestions?

Comments:
Elizabeth Cutright Ramsey died in 1810 in Ross County Ohio – I have her parents as John Cutright and Elizabeth Subre and her husband as Alexander Ramsey. - I am trying to find the date she died, where she is buried and verify who her parents were.

I show she was born the 5th of January 1776 in Monongalia County Virginia, not sure what City. - Her family came to Ohio after the war – her father fought in the Revolution and was given land in Ohio.

John “The Bear Hunterö Cutright died in Springfield Township, Ross County Ohio on the 24th of December 1830. I have him being born in 1747 on the South Branch of Potomac in Hampshire County near Moorefield West Virginia – I show his spouse as Elizabeth Subre. - I’m trying to verify his marriage, his children and his parents.

I found a death notice in the Scioto Gazette dated December 29 1830 – which mentions both him and his wife who died eight days before him.

In the 1880 History of Logan County Ohio –there is a chapter on John “The Bear Hunterö Cutright. Written by Nathaniel Ramsey - - son of Alexander Ramsey – who married John’s daughter Elizabeth.

I have alot of info to put back on computer coming forward, but nothing back on Charles. He married Harriet Putnam, in Ross Cnty, Ohio. Have had several directions, (NC, KY, PA) but still can not locate parents, siblings or go back. Alot of queries I've seen stop with this Charles, born around 1808. He was killed in Randolph Cnty, IN in the late 1830's & Harriet remarried Nathan Pool. Anyway if someone has figured out what I'm talking about & has ANY info, it would be greatly appreciated.

Comments:
The National Park Service has surveyed the area of the Shriver Circle Mound in Ross county. Named for Henry Shriver (Schriver) who owned the surrounding farm land. Could this have been my G G Grandfather?
My G G Grandfather Henry Schriver was born in Ross County in 1815. He married Elizabeth J. Weaver ,farming and raising a family. Around 1845 he sold the farm and the family migrated to Illinois where he farmed until homesteading in Kansas in 1860. It seems quite possible that GGGrandpa Henry is the namesake for this Earthworks.
Have any of your readers investigated this similarity of circumstances? I would be greatful for any infomation about this family.

Family oral history says that Hugh Stuart (possibly Stewart?) is buried on a hilltop near Frankfort. He died about 1824. The plot was later conveyed to Robert Stewart and other heirs, to remain as a family burying ground. My grandfather described it as a "conelike glacial hill", and noted at one point that part of it later was excavated for its gravel. Does this cemetery still exist? Can someone help me locate it when I visit the area? Thanks for any help. Hugh S. Fullerton, Magnolia, Texas.

Any information on Sarah's death would be helpful. The only children I know for sure is Rachel by Margaret and Curtis Berry by Sarah Curtis. But supposedly she came with seven children.
Christopher Baker was born in Virginia. Around Rockbridge. When he arrived I don't know but he was there by 1812 for the marriage. His parents were Christopher Baker and Katherine Staly.
The census of 1820 has them Richmond, Ross, Ohio. They have left by 1830.

Surnames I am Researching Tracy, Blain, Blaine
Comments:
I have been searching for information on William and Susan (Hitchcock) Tracy. I am related through their son Joshua, who married Mildred Frances Blain (daughter of Charles and Sarah Hess Blain, granddaughter of Charles and Sarah Gaines Blain). Any information that anyone can provide would be appreciated.

I know that William and Susan (Hitchcock) Tracy are buried at Londonderry. Charles and Sarah (Hess) Blain are buried at Omega, Pike County, OH. Joshua and Mildred (Blain) Tracy are buried in Ferncliff Cemetery at Springfield, Clark County, OH. I'm still looking for Charles and Sarah (Gaines) Blain's burial site.

I hope this information is also helpful to someone else!

Thanks,
Susan Thompson

Apparently Anton Baker/Becker died, and his wife and children migrated to Clark Co. Indiana and are found there on 1870 Census.

1870 Census, Jeffersonville, Clark Co. Indiana, 295-445, p. 499, #69-78 Elizabeth Becker age 43, b. Dormstadt, Hesse (they wrote Dramstadt), son John (Baker) age 19, b.

Seeking more information about Anton/Anthony Beiker/Becker/Baker born c. 1818 in Prussia and his wife Elizabeth born c. 1825 Hesse-Dormstadt, Germany.
Would like to know her maiden name, and if Anthony arrived in New Orleans, then migrated upriver to work as school teacher in Ohio, or if he came in through Pennsylvania.

Apparently Anton married previously in Muskingham Co. Ohio,

Muskingum County, Ohio Marriage Book #3, 1835-1848, 977.191 Vo 2m #3, p. 10-Anthony Beiker (Schoolmaster) to Mary Ralph 26 Sep 1843, marriage performed by J. Gallinger.

Mary died and he then married Elizabeth somewhere, would like to find that marriage.
*******

Elizabeth Becker probably died in Clark Co. Indiana, I decend through her daugher Elizabeth Baker who married Anthony Happe in Clark Co. Indiana 2 Oct 1877.

Any help on the above questions would be greatly appreciated.
