LEWIS, WALKER posted by Elaine B. Favre on Monday, September 13, 1999

I have inherited a number of family photographs, ca the Civil War, and naturally unidentified. The only clue I have to the identies lies in the postmark on some of them which came from Ravenna, OH. These were the type of thing sent to family , and possibly someone in the area would have received them also, and would have a record of who they were. Is there a site on Ohio Genweb (or elsewhere)where I might post photocopies to inquire? Thanks. EFAVRE

FISHER, MCDANIELS posted by Rose Johns on Wednesday, September 15, 1999

Searching for family information on Maria (Mariah) McDaniels, born abt 1812, married Ambrose Fisher, 25 Aug 1831 Portage Co., OH. Believe she had a brother Benjamin married to Lydia Fisher (the Fisher is probably not related to Ambrose), and I believe her mother's name was Mary, who was born in Virginia. Would love to find out who her siblings, parents, etc. were, and where the family lived before Portage Co., OH.


CALVIN, MUSSER, TUTTLE, WHITE posted by Rose Johns on Wednesday, September 15, 1999

Still searching for information on either of these people: Albert Calvin, born abt 1800, married Rebecca Musser, before 1824 possibly in Portage Co., OH. Their daughter Emily Calvin, born 14 July 1824 was married to Alva Tuttle, son of LaFayette and Rebecca White Tuttle of Portage Co. Their marriage date was 13 Sep 1842. Some of Emily and Alva's children ended up in Van Buren Co., MI, but it isn't known if the parents came, too.


BEAN, COLTON, HONEYWELL, NEWTIN, NEWTON, WERT, WIRT, WIRTH, WIRTZ posted by kristi jahns on Friday, September 17, 1999

I am searching for information regarding various members of my family that have lived in Portage Co. Ohio. The earliest of the members I have found in Portage Co. were John Wirt (born 1813 in Pennsylvania) who married Elsie Honeywell on 29 May 1834. Elsie was born 1813 in PA. They moved to Portage Co. sometime before August 1840. They had at least 2 children that I know of. The first was named Westley William Wirt (b. Aug 15, 1840 Portage Co.) and the second was named John Baptist Wirt (born Sep 17, 1843 Portage Co.). Westley William married Ella Bean on 17 Mar 1850 in Portage, OH. Ella was born 17 Mar 1850 and died 8 Jun 1911. Westley William and Ella Bean had 5 children named Silliman Mansfield, Mary, Ida Francis, John Westley and Reasin Andrew Wirt. I descend from Silliman Mansfield. I believe that John Baptist Wirt married a woman named Frances Colton. I know nothing about their descendents or Frances' family. Ella Bean was the daughter of Reasin R. Bean (b. Oct 12, 1822, d. Aug 25, 1863) and Frances Newton (Sep 1, 1832, died April 11, 1858). I don't know if they were each born in Portage Co., but they obviously had moved there by the time Ella was born on 17 Mar. 1850. They were married June 5, 1849. Reasin and Frances may have also had a son named Orrin Reasin. I would love any information about any of the above people. I would be happy to exchange my information with anyone who is interested. Thank you, Kristi e-mail:

BACON, DARLING, GILBERT, THURBER posted by Duane Eggleston on Friday, September 24, 1999

The 1800-1850 history of Palmyra, Portage County refers to Henry Gilbert marrying Fidelia Darling. I am descended from Henry Gilbert and have his ancestry pretty well documented, but know nothing about Fidelia Clementine Darling. When and where was she born? When and where did she die? Where is she buried? Where can I get a copy of the marriage certificate? Who were her parents? Would like any information I can get on them. I also believe I am somehow related to William and Polly (Thurber) Bacon mentioned in the history. I would like any information I can get concerning this couple.
