Title: ISO Rosanna SMITH (b. 1834) m. John VanBuskirk and William VanBuskirk in Ohio
Post by: cheezz on April 03, 2014, 10:17:07 PM
Rosanna Smith and William Van Buskirk were my ggg-grandparents. I have been trying to find her parents for many years. She was b. abt 1834 in Hudson, OH and died before Jun 1900.
married #1 John VB 1851 Marion Co, OH
married #2 William VB 1873 Marion Co, OH

As far as I know the two men were not related. John was the son of William & Phebe (Slater) VB and William MAY have been the son of Jacob & Elizabeth (Bishop) VB.

Rosanna has been found on census reports in Trumbull Co, OH, Cass Co, IN and Marion Co, OH. John died of disease in 1863 in Warrenton Junction, VA while a private in the 82nd Regiment of Ohio.

The only couple I have been able to find that MIGHT be her parents are George & Caroline SMITH:
George Smith
b. 14 Mar 1800
d. 4 Sep 1874
m. Catharine Smith
b. Aug 1806
d. 19 Apr 1869
both are buried at the German Reformed Cem, Southington, Trumbull Co, OH. On the 1850 Braceville, Trumbull Co, OH census, they have a daughter named Rosanna, age 15.

ANY help on Rosanna would be SO appreciated! Thanks :)
