Title: Unknown town in Ohio
Post by: pbasso1954 on July 23, 2010, 10:56:53 AM
I have a distant cousin, Frank Ellis Stinsman, who listed Gastown, OH, for his birthplace on his WWI draft application.  I have not been able to locate the town, references to the town, or even a brief mention of the town.  Does anyone have a reference book listing Gastown, or ever heard of it?  I'm getting rather frustrated with this.  Why would my cousin put it down if it didn't exist?
