Date posted: Tuesday, February 3, 1998

Hi Again, I'm looking for any information on my family who was from Knox County. Below is some information that I hope someone will recognize. My 2nd great grandparents Christian COSNER July 6, 1819 in Hardy County V., d.Feb. 7, 1891 in Frederickown (Buried in Forest). His wife was Patience SHORT They married Feb. 22, 1840 in Fredericktown. Patience died Nov. 15, 1903 in Fredericktown and is buried next to her husband. My ggreatgrandparents Isaac Norman COSNER b. Oct. 31, 1845 in Fredericktown, d. Mar. 7, 1893 in Mt. Vernon, buried in Fredericktown. I do not know where he is buried there. He's not in the Cemetery Records of Knox County. Married Bertha Helen MILLER Oct. 10, 1868 in Fredericktown. She d. Sept. 16, 1938 in Bucyrus but was buried in Fredericktown. Again, I do not know where. I was given the Lot number of 4934. That doesn't match the numbering scheme at Forest so without being there I'm at a loss. Bertha's father was Rev. J.W. Miller who I believe was a minister for 6 months at the Baptist Church at Fredericktown. If you have any information on the SHORT family or any COSNER's I would love to hear from you. I knowthe Miller's didn't stay in the area so I don't think there is much on that family in Knox County. Thanks, Sandy Cosner Norton

REYNOLDS: I am trying to find the parents of: Elsey REYNOLDS b. 17 Jan 1830, Pennsylvania. Both parents were born in Pennsylvania according to Elsey's census record. Elsey married Thomas Adamson RICE on 1 Jan 1846 in Knox county, Ohio. Their first child was born in Knox county and the rest were born in Licking County. Elsey died in 21 oct 1890 in Smith county, Kansas. In 1850,60 census they were in Licking County, Ohio. In 1870 census they were in LaSalle county, Illinois where her husband died. In future census she was in Smith county, Kansas. I would appreciate any leads on this family.
