Is Venice twp., Seneca co., Ohio going to be added to the old maps online? I am also looking for a postcard picture of the Bethel Church of God that was located between Attica, Ohio and Willard, Ohio but in Huron co., Ohio. I was told it burned down in the 1990s.

I was also wondering if there are any lists of teachers from Seneca co., Ohio in the 1850-1880 time frame. My great great great grandparents were John and Sarah (Cummins) Hillis of Venice twp., Seneca co., Ohio. Thank You.

FLEMING, SMITH, STRAUSE, STROUSE posted by Kurt Jensen on Saturday, March 9, 2002
Am looking for infomation concrning James W. Strouse (b. 1860); wife Mable/Mabel (b. 1870) and their two daughters, Clara (b. 1892) and PHALLY Aug. 1887-May 9, 1915). In 1900, James W. Strouse was a plumber living on North Main Street in Fostoria. By 1910, he had either died or wife Mabel/Mable had left him; she was living in Los Angeles wih a William H. Munson (b.1874), who was a salesman. Phally Strouse apparently stayed in Ohio, and was married to a man named Smith. Their address in 1913 was RFD 1, Box 5, Perrysburg. Clara moved with her mother to Los Angeles, and on April 7, 1909, married a Victor L. Fleming. They did not have children, and she left him on July 30, 1911, and at some point returned to Ohio, living with, I believe, her sister Phally. Clara is believed to have died in the nationwide flu epidemic of 1917-19, but I have not seen evidence of this. She may also have remarried. Any further information about the Strouse family, Clara or Phally, would be much appreciated!
