MCKELVEY, MOTT posted by Nancy Mott Lawson on Saturday, October 2, 1999

Looking for grave of Ezekiel Mott (d. 8 Jan 1825) in Deerfield Twp., Portage Co., Ohio. Would expect he would be buried in Deerfield Cemetery. I believe Mottown Cemetery did not exist until 1879 therefore too late for him to be buried there. Also looking for grave of Jane McKelvey Mott (d. 16 Nov. 1838). She was wife of Ezekiel. Ezekiel and Jane came to Deerfield in 1807. He was a Revolutionary War soldier. I am coming to Portage Co. (from Chicago) at Thanksgiving. Hoping to photograph all family head and foot stones.

JOHNSON, RICHARDSON posted by Jack Richardson on Saturday, October 16, 1999

LYMAN RICHARDSON of Portage County, Ohio is buried in Kent, Ohio. He died Jan 13, 1892. He had been married to Nancy nee Johnson in May 1837, and had 7 or 8 children. Lyman disappeared from records for over 35 years, from 1856 to 1892, where was he? Also, where in Massachusetts or Connecticut was he born? Who were his parents? Lyman's burial record says he was 78 at time of death, if this is correct, he was born between Jan 1813 and Jan 1814. He and Nancy are in the 1850 census as a family with 7 children, this record shows he was born in Massachusetts. But we have no proof that he ever came from there. I need your help.


BOOSINGER, PHIPPS posted by Deronda Phipps on Thursday, October 21, 1999

I am looking for information on the PHIPPS and BOOSINGER surnames. Susan Boosinger born April 3, 1820 in Brimfield, OH. I have found an IGI Record which gives Susan Boosinger married James Phipps on Sept. 24, 1848 in Summit, OH. My husbands great Uncle Orson Phipps was born 1858 in Summit Co., OH and is buried in Morenci, Lenawee Co., MI, which is where my husband's grandfather was born. Also buried in this same cemetery is Susan Phipps born April 3, 1820 "Bumfield, OH". My husbands father told me that James Phipps' spouse was "Sally Bussinger". After finding Conrad Boosinger in the Portage/Summit area I came to the conclusion that her name was not Sally Bussinger but Susan Boosinger, that is when I was able to locate the IGI Record showing her marriage to James Phipps. I also found a Susan Boosinger married Sept. 9, 1846 to a John Cobb in Portage Co., OH. (This may be the same Susan, perhaps John Cobb died and she married second to James Phipps). Parentage is not given for Susan Boosinger, however I feel she is of the correct age to be a daughter to a son of Conrad Boosinger b. 1752. I am very excited about this information, anything that you can add would be greatly appreciated. Sincere Thanks, Deronda Phipps
