Seeking additional information about my greatgrandparents, Joel
Darius DAVIS and Mary Frances SMITH. Joel is listed in the 1880
census of Portage Co. Kent, OH as a physician and his wife Mary as a
milliner. Children were Claude, Clifton, Ethelbert, Jay, Margaret.
Children born after that census were Janet, Edna, Louise, Bessie.
Janet was my grandmother. Joel was born in Ohio, but I don't know
where, as was his father (name unknown to me). His mother born in NY
(name unknown). Mary born in OH, her father, Samuel Draper SMITH in
CT and her mother in Ireland. According to my family oral history,
Samuel went to CA to find gold and never returned. His wife was
Margaret GETTYS, supposedly from the Gettysburg, PA Gettys. Margaret
is buried with daughter Mary Frances and son in law Joel in Standing
Rock Cemetary, Lot 140, Kent, OH. Need further info on Joel's
parents and Mary's, and any other info that would help. Thanks.
I am interested in info regarding Noble MARTIN and Nancy JEWELL

was McGill JEWELL, relationship unknown. Lookin for any info on the
MARTIN and JEWELL families.

1827 in Ohio. the 1820 ohio census list a John Goss from Portage Cty
