Rhoda DAVIS b. abt. 1836 OH, father Joshua DAVIS, b. abt. 1801 ME, enumerated in the 1850 and 1860 Windsor Twp., Morgan Co., OH census' together. In the 1870 Windsor Twp., Morgan Co., OH Census the Davis household consists of Joshua, Jane, Rhoda, William and Arzula (b. abt. 1867 and daughter of Rhoda) and three CALENDINE children of Jane: John, James and Mary. In the 1880 census Arzula is enumerated as a CALENDINE in the Bartlett HUTCHINS (b. 1802 ME) household, still in Windsor Twp., Morgan Co., OH. Later Rhoda DAVIS married a HALL. Bartlett HUTCHINS first wife also happens to be named Rhoda DAVIS and she is probably the sister of the above Joshua DAVIS.

Does anyone know where the "District of Sands" in Morgan Co., OH would be? I am researching a deed for 41 acres of land for a Nathaniel Fox of Morgan Co., OH dated Oct 5, 1835. My GGgrandfather, Nathaniel FOX, was living in Ohio around Athens Co. in 1831-1837 and I am wondering if this is him. He Married Kitturah McFARLAND in 1829 in OH. If you can help me with any information I would greatly appreciate it.

Would be interested in sharing information with anyone descended from Abraham Smith or his brothers or sisters such as Nathan, Silas, William or Sarah who migrated to Morgan County from Vermont and whose parents were John Smith and Mary Bull from Manchester, Vermont. I am descended from his son, William Reuben Smith, but I know that he also had two daughters: Esther (married an Olney) and Minerva (I believed married Daniel Bishop and moved to either Iowa or Illinois). I have his bible along with William Reuben Smith's bible.

Cornelius HEAD b. 1801 in ? m. to Mary MCDANIEL in Davies Co. Ky.
Their children were Jackson b. 1828, John b. 1831, David b. 1835 d. 1900. and Henry F. b. 1838 and d. 1887. Henry was my g.grandfather and was married in McConnellsville, Ohio, Morgan Co. to Elizabeth HENLEY and lived there with their 2 children, Charles and Florence Elizabeth who m. Raleigh Scott WATKINS who later moved to Ludlow, Ky and had 13 children. I believe Elizabeth HENLEY was born in Zanesville, Oh. Henry is buried in the McConnellsville cemetery. His wife is also supposed to be buried there, but, I have been unable to locate her gravesite there. When on a visit there several years ago, I found an account of Henrys' death in a newpaper in the library. He died while working aboard a steamer "Buddy Boy" in Parkersburg, W.Va. I would love to hear from anyone who feels connected to my line. Betty Bryant, Ky

I acquired a marriage certificate for my stamp collection, I thought if a Morgan County researchers happen to be looking for proof of their ancestors marriage I could send them a copy of it. The documentary stamp was initialed and dated by the minister ( these revenue stamps were required on photos, newspapers and lots of other paper items by the Federal Gov't to help pay off debt from Civil War, etc ) The certificate reads: " I do hereby certify that on the 24th day of dec. A.D. 1867 Mr. Wm.H.H.(?) Smith and Miss Emma Bars (or Barrs ) were legally joined in marriage by me. (signed) Eld(er) E.W. Daniels "
