John SHICK was on the personal property tax lists of Loudoun Co., VA from 1802 through 1811. On 18 May 1802, he married Catharine WEIR. This was recorded at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Middletown, Frederick Co., MD. The children of John and Catharine (Weir) Shick were Catharine Shick (1802- ), Elizabeth Shick (1803-1845) m. John ABLE, William Shick (1806-1894) m. Catharine SHAWVER, and Sarah Shick (1809-1905) m. Basil THOMPSON. Catharine Shick's birth was recorded at the German Reformed Church in Loudoun Co., VA and Sarah Shick's birth was recorded at the New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church at Lovettsville in Loudoun Co., VA. Catharine (Weir) Shick must have died between her daughter Sarah's birth in 1809 and her baptism in 1810 because the baptism states that Sarah's father was a widower. John Shick married Catharina SCHLOETZ/SLATES, the daughter of Frederick and Rosanna Schloetz, on 22 Aug 1811 at the New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lovettsville. John and Catharine (Slates) Shick moved to present-day Loudon Township, Carroll Co., Ohio. In 1832, John was elected a trustee at Emanuel Lutheran Church at Kilgore in Carroll Co. John's son William moved to Logan Co., Ohio. John's great-grandson wrote that John died in Bellefontaine, Logan Co., Ohio, in 1841. George SHULTZ (1752-1827) and Elizabeth SHOEMAKER were married in 1784 at Harper's Ferry, VA. In 1810, George received a land patent in Harrison Co., Ohio. It states that he was from Loudoun Co., VA. George's will was written in 1824 and probated in 1828 in Harrison Co. , OH. The children of George and Elizabeth (Shoemaker) Shultz were Mary Elizabeth Shultz (1785-1867) who married Daniel SHAWVER, John Shultz (1787- ) m. Polly Birchfield, Jacob Shultz (1788-1845) m. Anna M. Shoemaker, Catherine Elizabeth Shultz (1794-1898) m. Michael Hoobler, Margaret Shultz (1796- ) m. Philip Miser, Susan Shultz m. Jacob Beckley, Solomon Shultz (1799-1878) m. Rachel Kenouve/Knoff, Priscilla Shultz m. William Aimes/Eams, Rachel Shultz (1807-1876) m. Jacob Grimm, Elizabeth Shultz m. Daniel Riegle, and Polly Shultz m. Benjamin Riegle.

Time I renewed info about my wife's family tree. The family name in Loudoun County was KERN. They lived in the Waterford Area and moved to Carrol County, Ohio, about 1817 when and where they received a land grant from President Monroe. I would assume this was for either Revolutionary War or War of 1812 services, but do not have information about that. In Ohio, the family name KERN changed to KARN and then to KARNS for some reason. Those that went to Ohio Time I renewed info about my wife's family tree. The family name in Loudoun County was KERN. They lived in the Waterford area and moved to Carroll County, Ohio, about 1817 when and where they received a land grant there from President were KERN and those born in Ohio were KARNS. Family tree that we know about is as follows: Abraham Kern married Barbara - no dates. They had two sons. Adam Kern (b. 1785 - d. 9 Apr 1869) was a bachelor. David Kern (b. 20 Jul 1787/88 - d. 3 Jul 1868) married Elizabeth Smith (d. 24 Apr 1815) on 12 Mar 1812 and had two children Absalon Kern (b.4 Oct 1812 in Waterford, VA - d. 1 Mar 1880 Carroll Co, OH) and Margaret Kern (b. 6 Oct 1814) who married a Mr. Lohr. After Elizabeth died in 1815, David Kern married Jane Cunard (b. 1790 in PA - d. 21 Aug 1865 in Carroll Co., OH) and they had 8 children. This group is not part of my wife's family tree so I will not continue it, but if interested, I can provide names and some birth/death info as well as very little marriage information. In Ohio, Absalom Kern married Sarah Ann Best 17 Dec 1840. I have some info on the Best family for anyone interested. Absalon and Sarah had three children, Mary Malinda, William David, and Frederick Melvin. I have reasonably complete information on vital dates for Frederick Melvin Karns - this is my wife's grandfather - and his descendants. As I noted, the name changed to KARNS with this generation. Anyone interested in this family, send me private e-mail and I will provide what information I have. And of course we are interested in any information on the KERN family tree prior to Abraham and any siblings of his

I know my two Starkey's, Joseph and his brother, Isaac, were both Rev War vets, but they were not awarded land. I have records of their transferring their pension records from VA to OH before they left...Lucikly for me, we descend from a son of Joseph who stayed in the great county of Loudoun...... at least until he moved to Jackson Co, WV which is across the river from Ohio! This is a correction to info I sent earlier. Joseph Starkey left Loudoun Co. Nov. 1822 and went to Belmont Co. Oh His brother, Isaac, left Loudoun same time and went to Wayne Co. (He died in Coshcoton a few years later.)

Both gentlemen served in Rev. War

1836-1838 Joseph and Anne King, their two sons, William & Newton, left Loudoun County and migrated to Belmont County, Ohio. Please note that this family is African-American.

Phyllis Yarber Hogan



John Almer LEWIN b. 7 August 1791 (Shenandoah County, VA) migrated to Pickaway County, OH with William Renick. John married Salome CLUTTER (b. 17 July 1791 Loudoun Co., VA). Salome's family were also with Mr. Renick, as were a number of other families. John and Salome's was the first marriage in Harrison Township, on 24 May 1810 by Squire James Denny. I have no other information on Salome (still trying to find her parents/siblings), except the names of her children, the date of her death ( Jan. 1854) and the place of her burial-Warren County, IA.

Ellen Lewin



My Nancy Triplett and James Burgess French were married in 1817 in Loudoun County, VA, and their son Thomas French was born in Muskingum Count, Ohio. According to family legend George W. Wheeler was born in Loudoun Co.abt 1808 migrated with some other families to Muskingum Co. Ohio. He married Hanah or Hanna (last name unknown!) They had children: Louise (my g.grandmother), Ella, Mary J., Caroline, Hanah, Charlotte, Clarissa and George .,Jr. His daughter married a son of James B. and Nancy (Triplett) French. I would like any information on him that anyone might have.

Burr Braden & his wife, Mary D. Jenners, left Loudoun in 1828 and went as far as Dayton, Montgomery Co., OH. They were travelling with Mary's mother, Deborah (Young) Jenners, and her younger brothers & sisters. The family considered staying in Dayton, but finally decided to move on to Lafayette, Tippecanoe Co., IN where several of Mary's older siblings had already settled. These were: Martin (or Henry) Jenners, David Jenners, William M. Jenners, and Sarah (Jenners) Bradfield with her husband, Jonathan Bradfield and his family. There are indications that this earlier group also stopped in Ohio for awhile before continuing on to Lafayette, IN.

My gggrandfather, William S. Wilson, was born in Hillsboro, Loudoun Cnty, VA 1813. I don't know anything about his family. In 1839 he married Minerva Jane McArtor, b. 03/09/1811 also in Hillsboro, dau of Moses Taylor McArtor, in Knox Cnty, OH. (Moses also went to Ohio). My ggrandfather, Harmon G. Wilson, b 02/12/1847 in Zanesville, Muskingum Cnty, OH. William S died in 1850 and was buried in Poplar Fork Cemetery, Licking Cnty, OH. At some point, also buried in the same cemetery are Minerva, Moses and 2 of William's Minerva's infant boys. My gggrandfather, William S. Wilson, was born in Hillsboro, Loudoun Cnty, VA in 1813. In 1839 he married my gggrandmother, Minerva Jane McArtor, in Knox County, OH. In 1843 & 1844 he buried 2 small boys, Thomas and Henry, in Poplar Fork Cemetery, Licking Cnty, OH. 02/12/1847 he had my ggrandfather, Harmon G. Wilson, in Zanesville, Muskingum Cnty, OH. In 1850 he also was buried in Poplar Fork Cemetery. Knox, Licking and Muskingum are all kind of connected to each other. I'm real interested in you alls theory. When my gggrandfather, William S. Wilson came to Ohio I don't know. I have been unable to find out anything between 1813 and 1839. Oh, I might also add that Minerva's father, Moses Taylor McArtor, also traveled from Loudoun Cnty, VA to this area of OH. Sure would like to hear from you all,

I have the Jacob CARNICLE family heading to Tuscaroy Co cir 1832 then found in Guernsey Co by 1841 and Morgan County by 1849 It appears that this family moved with several other families among whom were the FIELDS. Ultimately found their way to IA by 1854...and more or less finally set down their pioneering stakes. With all these various migrations...there is bound to emerge some sort of pattern...perhaps one ingredient may have been the movement of the Quaker faithful further west..establishing MM's along the way. My family had reputed Quaker ties...but have been unable to substantiate it as yet

Hope Freeman Carnicle


The Frantz P. May family lived in the Leesburg area and in 1836 moved to Pickaway Co., Ohio. If any one happens to have any info on this family it would be greatly appreciated. About the only thing I have is that Frantz is buried in Leesburg and that they probably moved to Loudoun Co. around 1790. I hope this still makes me eligible for Loudoun Co. families. Do let me know.



Isaac HUTCHINSON and wife Mary MAUZEY migrated from Loudoun Co., VA to Marietta, Washington Co., OH between 1787 and 1791. This according to records although Loudoun County was probably Fairfax County at that time.

Ted Harruff


Members of the Benjamin Mead and first wife, Hannah Clews and second wife, Ann Pattison(Patterson) family moved to Ohio... Samuel Mead and wife, Sarah Whitacre to Belmont Co about 1816 Christian Mead and husband, William White Asenath Mead and husband Stephen Gregg about 1812 Joseph Mead and wife (Fry or Irey) to Stillwater MM, records noted in 1831 and John Mead and wife, Mary Holmes. Most were in Belmont Co. and wherever Stillwater MM had meeting. Will be happy to exchange data. Samuel and Sarah had custody of Griffith children in addition to their own.



My gt gt grandfather William Allbritain (wife, Mary Daniel) of Loudoun County moved to Muskingum County, Ohio, between 1820 and 1830. He was also a farmer, and a few years ago I found his land in the Rich Hill District. Their Humphrey cousins also moved there. I wonder if they were all neighbors who moved together.



My wife's ancestors, the GREGGs, also migrated from Loudoun county to Ohio. Samuel GREGG, his wife Ann SINCLAIR, and six children moved to Ohio in the 1798-1802 timeframe. The Quaker GREGGs obtained a certificate for removal from the Goose Creek MM on October 30, 1797, and presented it to the Redstone (Pennsylvania) MM in 1798. On February 4, 1802, they obtained a certificate of removal from Redstone and it was accepted at the Concord MM in Harrison county, Ohio, on June 19, 1802. They apparently lived near the border of Harrison and Belmont counties. Five more children were born in Belmont county, Ohio. It is only speculation, but among the reasons for their move may have been the probable need for more land to support the large GREGG families, the harassment they may have endured during and after the Revolutionary War for their Quaker pacifist principles, and their possible disgust for the practice of slavery in Virginia. The Ordinance of 1787 had opened up the Northwest Territory for settlement and the territory of Ohio was established in 1800. In 1812 the family pushed further west to Fredericktown in Knox county, Ohio. In the mid-1830s they continued their westward migration to Alum Creek in Delaware county, Ohio. Samuel (c 1840) and Ann (c 1838) died near Zanesville in Logan county, Ohio. Their children continued the westward migration to Indiana, Michigan, and Iowa.

John Wesley Littleton m. Elizabeth Ann Tavenner 21 Mar 1829 in Loudoun Co, VA They moved to Clark Co, OH (Springfield area) (WHY?) about 1836 and John Wesley died there 6 Apr 1838 (HOW?). Elizabeth Ann then moved with their 4 kids to Hardin Co, OH (Kenton area) in 1839. (WHY?) I KNOW other Tavenners were in Clark CO earlier and I just found in John's Estate papers I got yesterday, a loan he made to Lorenzo Littleton, who is a known relative. When Lorenzo got to Clark Co is a new project. ;-) Did they go there because Littleton's or Tavenner's were already there? Looks like it, but now I have to find them. As I get new info, I'll pass it along.

One of my ancestors William Polen and all his children moved to Jefferson County Ohio about 1830. He traded his land in Loudoun to Adrian Swart who had received the Ohio land originally. The Swarts had also been Loudoun residents and were settled in Loudoun as late as 1850. William followed his twin brother, Nathaniel to Ohio. Nathaniel and William and their families settled near one another . They are mentioned in the book on Columbiana County Ohio. So add,this family to the list

Susan Chiarello


Jackson Williams, born 1784 in Virginia, married Margaret Brawner, born in 1792. I believe they were married in 1815 in Loudoun county. Children were, Charles Fenton Williams born Sept. 16, 1817, Addison M. Williams born Sept. 18, 1819, Margaret-Amanda Williams, James Williams, Washington Williams and three unknown female children. Jackson was said to have made many trips moving people to Ohio and may have run a freight line. He helped move a Noah Swayne from Virginia to Ohio. Noah Swayne was appointed to the U.S.Supreme Court by Lincoln. Jackson and Margaret moved to Ohio in November 1833 with 7 or 8 children. He settled in Coshocton county, Ohio. I am sure Jackson had brothers or sisters. His sons names Fenton and Addison seem to be unique and undoubtedly named after another relative. Margaret's maiden name Brawner may also be a lead.

George Ater and Mary Boyer married Loudoun County 14 June 1774. George was on the Tax Roll for there 1787. His family was from Frederick MD, but they settled in area that was Harper's Ferry and ended up in WV. They left there for Ross County Ohio in 1799. David Boyer and Susannah Christman were witness at a child's baptismal at the Evangeline Lutheran Church Frederick MD.

Philip RICHCREEK (1763/64- 1842) married Sarah ROYER (d. 1856) Oct 13, 1787 (marriage bond posted that day) in Loudoun Co. They had many children, all born in Virginia, but most were married in Muskingum Co., Ohio. Their oldest son, Thomas, was married in Virginia and had 6 children there, with his last three or so children being born in Ohio (MuskingumCo.?). All of Philip and Sarah's children ended up in Ohio (most likely came with their parents and older brother sometime around 1820), in either Muskingum or Coshocton Counties.

My ancestors, Benjamin GARRETT, (son of Thomas Garrett and Margaret FOOTE GARRETT) and his wife, Mary A. BERRY GARRETT left Loudoun County, Virginia about 1800?? with some of their children to migrate "west". Family lore sez that they travelled to Kentucky first.......failed to settle there....then went north to Chillicothe, Ohio. Mary A. BERRY GARRETT stayed in Chillicothe with the children while Benjamin "scouted" for a homestead. He selected a tract of land in what is now known as Deer Creek Township, Madison County, Ohio. This land was once a part of the Virginia Military tract. According to a Madison County, Ohio history book, "Benjamin built a block house on the property to protect his family from the Indians", then travelled back to Chillicothe for them. He and his family were some of the first settlers of this region in 1804/1806.

Thanks for listening,

I have a Bradfield family that went from Loudon to Ohio. Any other people searching Bradfield



Gideon, George b. Loudoun Co VA m. Miller, Elizabeth moved to Champaign Co Ohio abt 1813 Gideon, Henry b. Loudoun Co VA m. Miller, Nancy Anna moved to Champaign Co OH abt 1813 Miller, Valentine m. Sarah Conard b. Loudoun Co Va moved to Champaign Co OH about 1810 (I'm not sure of the POTTS dates but they appear elsewhere in the list...Elizabeth Potts was mother of Sarah Conard) Titus is a really strange one. This is a DUTCH titus line which migrated from New Netherlands to Bucks Co PA...some of them split off (Teunis Titus) along with the Wynkoop line and ventured to Loudoun Co Va. I haven't quite figured it all out yet but later parts of the Titus Line are found in Muskingum Co OH AND several generations later this Titus line married into the aforementioned Gideon line.

My Stephen McPherson family emigrated from Loudoun County to
Knox County, OH, about 1827. Stephen had married Mary Brown in 1817
somewhere in Virginia. They had 12 children, eight born in Knox Co.
Stephen lived in Middleburg and Morris Twp of Knox Co., served as a
justice of the peace for 2 terms, and had been a member of Goose
Creek MM in VA. In Ohio he became a Methodist. Stephen moved to
Michigan in 1849 where he died the next year.



My name is Doug Kreis, I am President of the Muskingum County Genealogy Society, and I am willing to be involved in this project, with some constraint as to my time. We maintain a good library and we get a lot of questions about the Loudoun Ct, connections of peoples ancestors. I personally have Loudoun connections: mainly the Albert and Icy Blaker Francis family, Wm and Susan Blaker Shields, Joel and Harriet Blaker White, Benjamin F Saunders family, settled in Washington Twp Musk Ct, They came in the early 50's with a large group of people, who state on the census that they are from "Eastern Virginia". On my Fathers side the Keist/Kiste, Skiles came in the 30's with another group from the Lovettsville area to Adams Twp, Musk Ct, Some of these names are Vinsel, Werts, Slater, Wenner, Roller, and many more.

I will try to help in any way I can.

William CRAIG, son of James and Jane WETHEROW Craig, and his wife, Deborah HOLMES Craig, moved to Hanover Township, Columbiana County, OH, in August, 1806. They are known to have had at least eleven children when the move was made. None of the children were married at the time of the move. In June of 1814, William's brother, Samuel, entered into an agreement with his nephew, James (son of William), and other family members to join them in a business at Hanover, Columbiana Co., OH. In this contract, Samuel agrees to to deliver a wagon and team to Ohio early in the fall of 1814. This contract resulted in an involved Chancery Suit between Samuel and the other partners. Samuel and Mary HUGHES CRAIG left Ohio and moved to Kentucky with their family within a few years.

Would like to exchange information about these families.

By 1820 this family was in Belmont COunty, Ohio and is listed in the census. I would like to know about their time in Louden COunty. Several of the children died in infancy and should be buried there. ANy leads would be helpful. I have not been able to get copies of the 1790 or 1800 Census for Virginia, the family should be listed in both... Also, I have been told that Card is an old Virginia family. Were there Cards in Louden County at this time? I have no clues as to Mary Card's ancestors.

According to information left by my g-g-grandfather, Julius Miller RICHARDSON, his paternal grandfather, George Richardson, was born in Loudoun County, Virginia. George married Mary MOREHEAD, who was from Ireland. In 1812, George and Mary moved with their family, including their son George, and possibly the Walter family, to Tuscarawas County, Ohio. George, Jr. later married Barbara WALTER in Tuscarawas County. Apparently George (I have no idea which George) was a soldier in the struggle for American Independence and was given a land grant in Ohio, signed by President Madison. This information was published in "History of Ohio", Charles B. Galbreath, American Historical Society Inc., 1925, in a vanity bio possibly written by Julius himself. Most of the information I have on the family is from after their move to Ohio, but there are a lot of gaps. I would be happy to trade/share info with anyone who knows anything about these families. Thank you,

Linnea Caproni:


In 1840 my great-great-grandfather, John Wine, brought his second wife, Elizabeth Vinsel, over the mountains in a covered wagon from Loudoun county to Salem township, Muskingum county, Ohio. His children were: Adam, Washington, Elizabeth, Caroline, George, Armstead, Amanda, Catherine, Michael, Samuel, Jackson, and John Van Buren, the first six by his first wife. All either preceded, accompanied or followed their parents to Ohio, except Adam. My great-grandfather, John Van Buren Wine, was 2 when the move was made. John Wine's 11 children in Ohio produced at least 47 grandchildren.

Bogan/ Bogen/ Boger family: moved all around, Middletown Frederick MD, Cumberland PA, Lovettsville Loudon Co VA, Stark Co OH, Marion Co OH, (Not necessarily in that order) and finally Crawford Co OH. These ppl were all over the map! Some siblings to my Samuel Bogan (1816- 1889): Caroline and Susan were b. Loudon Co VA and christened in New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lovettsville Loudon. Other siblings, Amalia and Dorothea c. Evangelical Lutheran Church in Frederick Co MD. Father Johann Henreich Bogan(1785-1858) christened Middletown MD. Any help on this family would be greatly appreciated!

Christopher BARNHOUSE/Bornhaus came to America from Datterode, Germany where he was born in 1757. He married Rosina Roller on Aug. 11, 1783 in Lovettsville, Loudoun Cty, VA. It is believed she was the daughter of Johan Andrus David ROLLER/Roler and Rosina ? but I have no confirmation of that. She was born June 3, 1759 in PA and died July 20, 1825 in Jefferson Cty, OH. Christopher died May 1833 in Springs Twp, Jefferson Cty OH. Their son, George III, b 1785 in Lovesttsville, Loudoun Cty, VA married Susannah FOX b 1776 in Loudoun Cty, VA on March 21, 1805 in Lovettsville. They both died in Jefferson County, OH - he in 1842 and she in 1833. They had 10 children. Therefore both the Barnhouses and the Foxes. as well as Rollers, may have made the Loudon Cty to OH migration.

DURFLINGER/NEER TO Ross Co./ Madison Co. OHIO Daniel and Elizabeth (NEER) Durflinger moved from Loudoun Co. VA to Ross Co. OH in abt. 1803. They appear together in several Concord Township land transactions, until about 1828 when the family moved to Madison Co. OH, near West Jefferson. Known children are: Mary, m. Wesley Lilly; Philip m. Mary Lilly; Daniel, jr., m. 1) Sarah Riley 2) Rachel Fryberger 3) Martha Fryberger.* I also believe they had a daughter Eva, whose son Calvin is my gg-grandfather. Daniel sr. and jr. moved abt. 1838 to Hamilton Co. IN, near Noblesville. Daniel Sr. died there in 1844. In the 1860 census, an Elizabeth Durflinger, retired, age 88 b. VA is living in Madison Co. OH. In her household is Eva Durflinger, age 44, b. OH and Calvin, age 10, b. OH. I believe this is Elizabeth (Neer), widow of Daniel Durflinger. Daniel Durflinger b. 1773 (Loudoun Co VA) is the son of Henrich and Eva Margaret (HAMMAN) Durflinger. Two other sons of Henrich (Frederick, Thomas) went to Ohio, via Ross and Madison Co.--Thomas at same time as Daniel. Frederick a little later. *Mr. Erik Conard, now of Denver, has info from another descendent, Warren Everhart (1882-1962) that names the children of David (Daniel) and Elizabeth (NEER) DURFLINGER as: Catherine, Daniel, Eva and Barbara. According to Mr. Conard, Elizabeth Neer, b. 1782, is the daughter of Philip Neer, b. 1746 and Mary Elizabeth (POTTS).

Philip BROOKS, born 1800 in Loudun Cty, and his brother, James, born 1802 in Leesburg, Loudoun Cty removed to Morgan Cty OH. Philip married Margaret RUSSELL of VA while in OH and James married Isabel Gamble in OH. Their mother, Ann (maiden name unknown) married to John SPENCE in Loudoun Cty in 1806; therefore their father died between 1802 and 1806. I would dearly love to know who he is. Ann had at least two children by Mr. Spence: Vincent b 1811 and Hensen b. 1812. Both were born in Loudoun Cty and they, too, went to Morgan Cty OH where they ran a hat shop and were hatters. I believe John SPENCE died in Loudoun Cty about 1813.
