My ggfather was supposedly born in Wilkesville, Ohio (looks like Willsville on the hand written death record). His name was George Washington RIFFLE. The best I can figure is that he was born around 1871 or 1872? His father was Will RIFFLE. He later lived in Mason County West Virginia and died in Charleston, WV. I would also like to know who his parents and 3 brothers and 2 sisters were. He had a son named John Franklin RIFFLE in 1889. Don't know if he married Mary SNYDER in Ohio or WV or if they weren't married. He remarried in 1897, so I thought she might have died or divorced him. She had two daughters before she married George named Mae and Effye or Evvie or ??? Snyder. I thought Mary Robinson SNYDER might have also gotten married to George in Ohio. That is all the info I have on them.

I have from a Vinton Co., History and Families (Copyright 1996) "...Margaretha EBERTS (16 August 1839- 10 May 1926) married John NEWMAN 25 September 1864 in Vinton County.

I am a Great Grandson of Stephen (Eleven) Might, whom I believe died in Vinton County (possibly in Wilkesville), Ohio, on 23 August 1910. Stephen Might's birth date is 2 April 1843. I believe Stephen may have lived earlier in Meigs County, OH. I am trying to determine the parents (grandparents, etc.) of Stephen Might. Stephen Might is known to have married Rebecca (Eliza) Davis (1844-1925) on 15 September 1864. According to the 1880 Wilkesville, Vinton County, OH, census, the following persons lived in the household of Stephen Might: Stephen; Eliza (his wife); Lucy (born ca 1865); Cassius (born ca 1866); Lillie (born ca 1868); Nellie M., my Grandmother, (born 22 January 1871 - died in Marion, IN, 15 September 1951); Harriet (born ca 1873); Mary (born ca 1878); Charles (born ca 1880); Blair; Viola; and George. Stephen is believed to have had a brother Samuel Might. I found a Samuel Might (age 68) who was listed as (Head of Family) in the 1910, Meigs County, OH, census. Living with Samuel Might were his wife, Olive M., age 68. (Her maiden name is believed to have been (Davis,) and she was probably a sister of Stephen Might's wife, Eliza); Samuel's daughter, Mary (age 46); and his niece, Delia O'Connor (age 24). I would really appreciate if someone could research newspaper obituaries, death records, etc., to help me determine the parents, siblings, birthplace, and burial place of Stephen Might. I would be very happy to provide reimbursement for any expenses incurred.

I believe Anne died shortly before Margaret died in 1875. They were originally Catholic so I believe they attended St. Sylvester's. Does St. Sylvester's still exist? Has the cemetery ever been listed? Is there a Madison Township Cemeteries book published and for sale? Is the Ferguson Cemetery close by? What archdiocese does St. Sylvester's fall under?

I have a copy of a picture that was in a Vinton Co. Newspaper (sorry I don't know which one, but probably the McArthur Democrat Enquirer). It is a picture of what Haburn School (near Puritan) pupils looked like in 1910. It was taken by Rufus H. DYE, the teacher, of his elementary pupils (first thru ninth). He also developed the picture and gave it to Mella POTTS as a reward for getting the most head marks in the spelling class. Listed under a picture that was taken February 8, 1910. Among the pupils listed are: "Ortha POTTS, Leo POTTS, (deceased)Willie HABURN, Mildred POTTS KRIEBEL, Blanche JOLLY ADCOCK, Mella POTTS MURDOCK, Bernice EBERTS FRAZEE, Harley POTTS, Edna POTTS FRAZEE, Eva JOLLY STARK, Faye ROOF KIRKENDALL, Hazel HABURN, Blanche GARRETT, Eva POTTS FRANK, Marie CARR, Raymond EBERTS (deceased), George MALONE, Grace JAYJOHN BETHEL (deceased), Florence POTTS BAKER (deceased), Ella HABURN, Elizabeth JOLLY, Meda HAYBURN, Virgil BOLTON, Levi JOLLY, Guy POTTS." Mella married Lawarence MURDOCK who is the son of my husband's great great Aunt on the Paternal side of his father. Also in the picture is his Great Uncle on the Maternal side of his father. I am trying to untie the Potts in this paticular picture. Are they all related from the same family?? We seem to be related to many of the pupils but haven't been able to sort out the Potts. If you are able to help I would appreciate. I would be happy to scan and send this picture to anyone interested as well.
