Cornelius Voorhies lived in Knox County with his son and wife until his son moved in 1853. Cornelius Voorhies died in October of 1844. Is there any cemetary record of him in Knox county in the local graveyard or obituary about him.

Mary Kate Ludwick



Just a reminder to Mary Kate Ludwick and others

Remember that two (I think just two) townships were given to Morrow county in 1848 when it was organized. Is it possible that your relatives are now in a Morrow Co Cemetery? Mine are.

I have a copy ov the Knox Co. Cemetery book. There are 2 Vorhees burried there:

Oran Chauncey Vorhees b. 1917 d. 1979
Patty (Workman) Vorhees b. 1925

Both burried in Union Twp. Workman-Robinson Cemetery.

Date posted: Tuesday, April 14, 1998

I am searching for information on James Reynolds - James and his brother Lewis were born in Chester County Nottingham T.P. PA. 1787 and 1793 They came to Ohio in 1823 - first Land Record for Coshoctan County Richland T.P. later part of Holmes County.

Lewis married Lydia ? Barnes in PA - they had 3 sons and 2 daughters. Lewis died in 1829. Lydia married John Turner - The 2 sons Levi and Samuel married Mary and Sarah Knox. Evidently the Knox family also came from Chester PA too. The only son of Levi and Mary John W. is listed as living on his Grand Father Knox farm. I have exhausted my search in Holmes County for the James Reynolds - when, where, and who he married and when, where he died and is buried. I know James was alive in 1850 and was 63 yrs old. I only got a quick glance at a Knox County book and noticed there were several Reynolds listed in Knox county. I would like to find if this is where my GGG Grandfather James is buried. Thanks for any assistance. Would like to join the discussion group.
