  42. ROST (John) of Hamilton, OH. Gary Rost, wollbach@worldnet.att.net (Jul 3 1997). I am looking for assistance or leads on my family line surname ROST.

  46. ROUND, ROWND, ROWEN, ROWAN, ROWN. (Also ALLENDORF, BOYERS, DICKERSON, DICKINSON, DROLLINGER, MILLER, SHRADER, WATSON) I read some of the history and was disappointed that the only reference to Surname " ROUND" was Philip Round who donated to Hamilton Jail in 1803. This may be partially due to name being spelled in various documents as Round, Rownd, Rowen, Rowan, Rown. I know that some of the JACOB ROUND family was there as early as 1791.

    Butler Co records show that Jacob and Andrew ROUND signed up for the Symmes (misspelled) Land Grant in 1791. Philip was a scout in the army from 1790-1794 and again in the War of 1812. Jacob was on the Tax rolls as early as 1807. Jacob signed an INDENTURE in 1811 giving money and land near MIAMI RIVER to children: Andrew, Daniel, Jacob Jr, Philip, Merium (aka Martin), Elizabeth, Mary "Polly", and Catherine.

    Jacob JR married Nancy MILLER in 1811 in Butler County and he died in Butler Co. in 1819. His Will showed Jacob ROWAN JR. Abt. 1820 Daniel ROUND and wife Martha (?), sold his land to bro-in-law Philip SHRADER who had married Elizabeth ROUND. Andrew and Elizabeth (DROLLINGER) sold their landand moved to Parker Co., IN, where Andrew took name of ROWEN although one of his sons Philip David, kept the name of ROUND. Philip and Daniel were in DEARBORN CO. in census of 1830. Martin ROUND married Susannah BOYERS in BUTLER CO. in 1805. MARY married Isaac WATSON in 1808. Catherine had married a Fred ALLENDORF earlier and he was killed by Indians . She later married John DICKERSON/DICKINSON who was in American Revolution. Jacob Sr. was also repoted to be in Revolution. - by Charles Round, 7/15/3

  47. ROUND, Ezra (MY GGGRANDFATHER) had stated he was from Butler Co., and born in 1810. I do not know (for sure) who his father was, but Jacob SR. is probably his grandfather. Ezra died in Brown County, OH.
