I've mailed several requests, but maybe it's been lost. I am
seeking information on John and Elizabeth Klein of Randolph. They
immigrated to Randolph from Germany in 1832 with their son Adam (b.
1/12/1832 in GER). John died in 1888 and Elizabeth in 1841. The
family were farmers. I would like to find information on other
children of John and Elizabeth Klein. I believe my great
grandmother, Anna Mary Klein Neff (b. 1836 in Randolph, d. 1907 in
Akron) was the daughter of John and Elizabeth and sister to Adam.
The homestead of Adam and his son's (and perhaps began as John and
Eliz. homestead also) was on Ranfield Rd. Any written information or
copies ofphotos would be appreciated.

Jewett, who was married to Sophia Lance (or Lanz) about 1843 in
Perth County (formerly Brock District) Ontario. They had one

called Middlebutry [Summit County]—it’s possible she was born in
Morgan Cty, OH) . Samuel is purported to have died on the Great
Lakes (between 1843-1846). Sophia and Cynthia went to Kirtland, OH
and then west with the Latter-day Saints. I have no records on
