Nancy Boon Thu Jan 2, 1997, 13:39:30
My great great grandparents lived in Ohio. I believe they lived in Morgan County. My great great grandmother was Sarah Barkhurst. She was born in Ohio on March 16, 1826. She married Robert Fitch who is supposed to have been born in Glasgow, Scotland on June 4, 1824. They had one child, my greatgrandmother, Nancy Fitch. Nancy Fitch was born October 17, 1846 in Ohio. Sarah Barkhurst Fitch died December 3, 1846 at age 20. She died six weeks after Nancy Fitch was born. Robert Fitch later remarred and moved to Keokuck, IA. He rasied a family and was buried there. I assume Nancy may have been raised by relatives in Ohio, as she married Lysander Asa in Morgan County, Ohio on 11/3/1866. Any help would be greatly appreciated on the ancestors of Sarah Barkhurst or Robert Fitch. Thank you very much.

The shortest branch on my family tree is my father's maternal line, the Pearls. We know her father was William Andrew Pearl and that he married Mary Alice Higgins, who was probably from Benwood, WV, as that is where the family settled and still is today. Oral history tells that William Andrew was born in Springfield (Clark Co.), Ohio. I am hoping to locate a birth date and parents' names. His daughter (My grandmother) was born in 1903, so I would expect him to have been born in the 1870s or 1880s? I also located a William A. Pearl born 17 March 1838 in York Twp. Morgan Co., Ohio. This is an age where he cound possibly be a father, Uncle or grandfather. Any help or links anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated, and I could provide some descendent information.

I am researching the MILLER family. I have located the grave sites of some of the MILLER family in a Morgan County cementary in Neelysville, Ohio. The markers indicate that John MILLER was born in 1799 in Virginia. He died 06-03-1861. His wife was Catherine CALENDINE. No birth date was listed. She died 09-08-1860. She was also born in Virginia. I'm not having much luck going backwards and would appreciate any advice.
Thanks, Stephen Miller

Looking for the LANSING family. A woman LANSING is supposed to be the mother of my ggg-grandmother Henrietta McELROY. According to some old notes Henrietta had an uncle Robert and Eli. I found a Robert and Eli B. LANSING living next to one another in Brookfield Township, Morgan County, Ohio in the 1830 Census. Also according to the Morgan County Courthouse Marriage Index for 1819-1840 Eli B. (probably Bingham) married a Savina DILLER and Robert B. married an Amy Ann Burlingame. I believe my gggg-grandmother's name was Lucy, but there are conflicting sources which suggest it may be Rachel. Henrietta McELROY also may have had a sister Rachel and definitely had a sister Lucy. In any case, a Rachel LANSING married a F.L. Gilbreath according to that same index. I am planning on writing to Morgan County for more information on these marriages, but thought I'd post a query here anyway. If you don't have access to email for some reason, my mailing address is P.O. Box 9943, Stanford, CA 94309-1643. Thank you.

I placed a Morgan County Query on August 20, 1997 and since that time I may have come across something new for my ALEXADER line. As mentioned before my gr grandfather Harry ALEXANDER was born in McConnellsville, Morgan County, Ohio on the 13 May 1866. In a reference book titled THE STOCKER FAMILY I found Harry's name and supposedly his parent's names, Charles and Amanda (DUTCHER) ALEXANDER but I have been researching the parent's names for quite some time and have never been able to trace them at all. Harry's death certifcate didn't list their names. Yesterday, September 26, 1997 I visited the Historical Society here in Columbus and found an 1870 Morgan County Census for a James H. Alexander with a wife Amanda and five children one of them was a son named Harry who was at the time 4 years old which would have put his birth year at 1866. When going over other data in the STOCKER FAMILY BOOK I noticed quite a few errors in names and data that I know were not correct. So I am thinking that maybe Harry's parents were not listed correctly. Is there any one out there familiar with the following ALEXANDER NAMES? James H. ALEXANDER, age 34 in 1870, Amanda, age 38 in 1870, born in NY, William age 12, Charles A.,age 7, Harry St. Clair age 4, Lizzie age 2, and Ida age 3/12 b. Feb. 20 1870. If any of these names look familiar please contact me at I would certainly appreciate any information or suggestions as to how to go about furthering my research on this line. Jadean Hopper

I posted a query in September, 1997 on the ALEXANDER/DUTCHER surnames in Morgan County, Ohio. Since I posted the query I found that I had some data that wasn't correct. I am placing this new query to make the corrections. I am researching an Amanda DUTCHER who married a James H. ALEXANDER on the 19 October 1855 in Morgan County, Ohio. Amanda's father might have been a Thomas DUTCHER age 66,born in New York according to 1870 Morgan County Census. Amanda was born in 1832 in New York. Amanda and James H. ALEXANDER had at least six children William, Charles A., Harry St. Clair, Lizzie, Ida and Alice D. Harry St. Clair ALEXANDER, my direct line, was born in McConnellsville, Morgan County, Ohio in 1866. He married Alice Gerusha STOCKER and then later resided in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. I am trying to further my research on the DUTCHER and ALEXANDER line from this area.

And has there been a registration of the graves at the "Friends Old Burying Ground"? My ancestor, Rachel Miller, was buried there in late November 1881. (Source: Marietta Register Death Notice for December 1, 1881). Also, would an individual have to be in good standing with the Quaker faith in order to be buried in their burial ground?

I am looking for information of my father and his ancestry. His name was Franklin Foster DYE (Sr.?). He was born on January 31, 1901. I believe he lived in Reinersville as a young boy and graduated from High School in McConnelsville. He attended Muskingham College and transferred from there to Ohio State University, Class of 1929. He was raised by his grandmother whose surname was FOSTER. I also believe that for a time he was a teacher at McConnelsville High School. I also know that he graduated from Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia, PA, Class of 1933. He opened his first medical office in Freeport, OH and from there moved his practice to Cadiz, OH. I know the ancestry from that point forward. Am looking for anything to identify my fathers maternal or paternal ancestry. Please respond to my email address. Thank you very much...My E-Mail Address is

I posted a lot of extraneous information to the "Guestbook" before realizing there was a Query Poster! I apologize for this redundancy. At the risk of being tiresome to readers here's a repeat summary of my query. Looking for additional names, dates, and places on my grandmother's side of the family, RAMSEY, Mabel. She was married to HOOVER, Delbert C.. Most of his brothers, Dayton, Lewis F., Andrew J. Cevil and John, lived in Morgan County all their lives - places like Stockport and Chesterhill, and I believe both of my grandparents are burried in McConnesville. She in 1965 and he some time close to 1990. Mabel had a married sister, Net (Nettie) SIMS. The SIMS lived in McConnelsville all their lives. I noticed a query by Teresa Hagans, dated Sun Aug 3, 1997 looking for help with William BURRIS. I also have a BURIS, Susan, born 1839, she is my great great grandmother who married Andrew M. HOOVER, 1834-1863. Susan remarried after Andrew M. Hoover died in the civil war, changing her married name to either Ingle or Angle, I'm told. I'd like to follow-up with Teresa on this, but am unable to bring up her e-mail address at this point! Can anyone can provide additional links to the construction of this family tree?
