Thank you Tom, I've been at this 24 years. First time I was aware that Ohio Birth/Death records started in the 1880's
Have you tried this link:  http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohmedina/lookup.htm?  Perhaps on older census will provide you more details?  How about his death certificate?

Just curious...do you know if Coral Peck was related? http://us-census.org/pub/usgenweb/census/oh/medina/1830/index.txt Westfield Township is very close to Lafayette, Ohio.
