On Christmas Eve, 1911 (yes, that's correct "1911"), a man was run over and killed in Coschocton, Ohio by a railroad train traveling from Roscoe to Mt. Brinkhaven. He carried no identification and the only clue as to whom he might be was the presence of a large quantity of shoe strings found around his body. His death certificate (#166) was signed by Coschocton physician and coroner, Dr. J. D. Lower, who listed him as an "unidentified white male; probable shoe string peddler." He was buried in a pauper's grave in South Lawn Cemetery in Coschocton. His gravestone is engraved simply "No. 166." My sister-in-law who lives in Coschocton recently saw this man's grave and, knowing my work in genealogy, told me about it and asked if there might be any way to find his family. So-o-o, somewhere in an Ohio town is a family whose husband and father never arrived home for Christmas in 1911 and seemingly disappeared into thin air. Even though this happened 102 years ago, family memories/stories of him have surely lingered on in his descendants, or the descendants of family friends or neighbors. Please put on your thinking hats, all you Buckeyes out there, and see if we can solve this mystery.

Nathan Stephens born 1813 perhaps in Washington County then the county changes to Morgan County.   I am in need of finding who his parents are and who his siblings are.    

'Two times I thought I had the right parents and they were not correct.

Parents names are NOT  in the Obituary - he died in Weir City, Miami County, Kansas married Alice "Allie" Phillis they moved from Ohio to Illinois then to Kansas.   I believe for almost certain that Nathan is born in Washington County Ohio.  

Trying to secure Nathan Stephens parents.   Could have been spelled Stevens however most of his siblings that I believe are his --- go by Stephens.     I have land records of selling different parcels of land to his siblings.   

Father died in Pitt county Ohio - Father from PA.

Thank you for any assistance you can give me - Janisue Weir Rigel    janisue@aol.com  

Thank you again for any help   ..............  I have been researching this a long time and still just speculations.

Hi, I have an obituary at the Columbus Metro Library in Columbus, Ohio. Is there anyone that would be willing to look it up for me and either send it or email it to me? More than happy to pay for your time or copy/postage.

George Washington JOHN(S), b. 16 June 1823, Ohio (location unknown); md. Mary Ann SMITH 14 Jan 1846 in Franklin Co., Indiana.  (Mary Ann b. 14 Oct. 1826, Butler Co., Ohio).  They had the following children:
1.   Robert Minor John, b. 1848, Union Co., IN; md. Nancy A. Berry
2.   Robert A. John, b. 1850, prob. Union Co., IN; no other info
3.    Phoebe, b. Mar 1850, d. 5 Mar 1912, Union Co., md. WillIam T. Smith
4.   James, b. 1852 (date suspect) Ohio (per 1850 census – he may be a nephew rather than son)
5.   Catherine, b. 1855, Union Co., IN; d. June 1922; md. John Ryan
6.   Isabell b. June 1855 (believe she & Catherine/Kate were twins); d. 28 Feb 1936, Union Co.; md. James Lunsford
7.   Lorenda, b. 1859 prob Union Co.; died after 1936 in prob. Clay City, KS; md. Unknown Slade
8.   Emma R. b. Apr 1862, Union Co., d. 9 May 1924, md. Ennis Veal
9.   Orrel Mary b. 26 Sept 1864, Union Co.; d. 20 May 1930, Goodwins Corner, Union, IN; md. Finley Lattimore Sharp 19 Apr 1888. (my great-grandmother)

I believe Mary Ann Smith to be the daughter of Catherine Smith, who was living with George & Mary Ann at 1860 census, age 71, born PA.  In the 1870 census Catherine was living next door with George’s son Robert M. & wife Nancy.  My roadblock is the parents of George W. – according to his death record, his mother’s name was Elizabeth, born in Ohio per the 1900 census.  Any chance you may have run across this line?  I have a lot of early JOHN research info but so far can’t connect back…any help appreciated!

Looking for information on this family - Orrin moved from Hullett Twp, Huron County, Ontario and married Nellie Clevidence in Cuyahogo, Ohio in 1920.  From that point on, I have been unable to find any information on either of them.  If anyone has any info or ideas where else to search, I would appreciate your assistance.

Hello to all my fellow researchers

I am looking for a David Dailey who married a Elizabeth Hill Dorr from Athens County Ohio. I have several death records on my Dailey ancestors that have David Dailey  and Elizabeth Dorr on them. As I trace David Dailey I find him in Meigs county in 1820 then nothing after that. I believe this David Dailey is the the son of David Dailey and Vanity Matterson. As I further my research I find a Elizabeth daly in 1850 census in Franklin Columbus Ohio in the home of Benjamin Dailey and his wife Louisa ? and a Michael Dorr...This could be a second husband for Elizabeth. I further my research to Illinois where I find one of the children of Michael Dorr and Elizabeth listed as a mother. Then I find a Death Record for Elizabeth Dorr in Cooks County Illinois perhaps this is the the Elizabeth I am looking for. If anyone reading this post is any relationship to the Dorr family from Athens County Ohio I would love to chat with you. Roll Eyes
