BURNHAM, BURT posted by Jane Peppler on Monday, April 6, 1998

Searching for any information on the following: Aden/Adin BURT (b. 1843 Ohio); Alvira or Almira BURNHAM BURT (b. 1846 Canada); Marian/Marion BURT (b. 1868 Wisconsin); Arminta BURT (b. 1870 Ohio); Willis BURT (b. 1873 Ohio); Imogene BURT (b. 1878 Ohio). Imogene is my great-grandmother. This family was found in Cardington, in the Morrow County Ohio Census of 1880, so I assume the last of these children were born in Cardington. Please get in touch if you have information. Jane Peppler, 5301 Cedronella Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27514

I am a beginner researching the surnames of my family. They lived in Marengo and Mt. Gilead in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

My grandmother was Kate WEAVER DEWITT and their children were, Glen, Florence, Paul and Harold Hobart DEWITT, my father. Any help or suggestions on getting started would be appreciated.

ALLMAN, CLARK, ROWAN posted by Anne Benson on Monday, May 25, 1998

Nicholas ALLMAN married Peggy (CLARK) ROWAN in WV. Peggy was a widow with a young son, William CLARK ROWAN. Her first husband was Thomas Cornelius Howard ROWAN. Nicholas is listed in Ohio Land Warrants in 1820 in Morrow County (one is listed as Delaware, so must be in the area where the counties changed) and Family Tree Maker states he is in the 1840 Ohio Census. I do not have access to that census. He is probably in Westfield Twnshp, as that is where I later find William ROWAN. I would like to get in touch with anyone having information on this family. Anne Benson, 352 Woodland Ave., Williamsport, PA 17701-2362
