The above couple were married Jan. 11th., 1820 in Muskingum Co., Ohio.  They afterwards removed to Richland Co., and settled about three miles south of Ganges, on the Mansfield road.  At this place they both became members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and were connected with a class which held its meetings in a school house not far from where the Franklin Church now stands.  This class was organized about forty years ago.  And after the church at Franklin was built, it served as a nucleus around which to form a church, which seems to be in a prosperous condition now.  But two of the old pioneer class survive.  One by one they have been gathered home.  The funeral services of both father and mother Tooker was attended by the writer on the 6th. inst. at the above named church.  Quite a large concourse of friends and relations from this and adjoining counties were present to pay the last tribute of respect to these departed loved ones. -- O.H.R.
