BADGER, BECK, FRONTZ, LAMBRIGHT, SIGLER, WONSETLER posted by Kathy Helmick on Saturday, January 10, 1998
Looking for LAMBRIGHT, BECK, WONSETLER, SIGLER, FRONTZ, BADGER names with connections to Seneca County. I would like to share what limited information I have with anyone with similar names in their genealogy. Please email me at (I will send a reply if I receive it). I am having some trouble with my connection currently. My home address is 890 Findlay Street, Perrysburg, OH 43551-1669. Thank you for any information, Kathy Helmick

COFFMAN/GRABACH/GRUVER/WHITEMAN. Two of my 2nd Great-Grandfathers, who were early settlers of Seneca County, were heads of their own households by the time the 1850 census was taken, so I could not identify their parents through these records. Levi Coffman was born in PA in 1822 or 23. His wife, Mary, was born in OH in 1825 or 26. They lived in Adams twp. in 1850, but no Coffmans were found in Seneca Co. in the 1840 census. Humphrey Whiteman was born in PA about 1815. His wife, Sarah, was born in MD about 1813. Humphrey as well as a number of other Whitemans were listed as the head of households in Adams twp. in 1840, but only Daniel and Samuel were so listed in 1830. If you have any information as to the identity of Levi or Humphery's parents, their wive's maiden names, or suggestions how I might proceed to find this information, please let me know. Many thanks, Jim Davis [Note! Through contact with several cousins, most of the above has been answered. If you are researching any of these individuals or DALLMAN/GUISBERT/KANAGY/PARKER/SETZLER/ THALLMAN of Seneca County, please contact me.]

BRETZ, HAMILTON, HIESTAND, WILLIAMS, WOLFE posted by Carol M. Jarmin on Tuesday, April 7, 1998
Am needing information on the Philip BRETZ family. Philip BRETZ came to Seneca County from Pennsylvania via Fairfield County, Ohio. His daughter Susannah married three times, HIESTAND, WOLFE and Eli WILLIAMS. I am descended from the marriage to Eli WILLIAMS through their daughter, Sarah, who married Thomas HAMILTON. The HAMILTON's later moved to Brown County, Illinois. Thomas HAMILTON served in the Civil War. I would like to correspond with others who are researching these same lines. I understand that Susannah BRETZ ()WILLIAMS divorced her husband Eli WILLIAMS due to his assaulting a daughter(s) and pressed charges which caused him to be incarcerated in the Ohio State Penitentiary where he died sometime after 1855. I would like to find the court records as well as the penitentiary records. Any suggestions? Thanks!
