Research Notes

After learning her maiden name was Francina "Sina" Dement, I found out her sister Elizabeth Dement was married to Christian Pryor brother to her husband John Pryor. Her father Vincent Dement was born 1803 in Virginia and passed away April 26, 1870 in Seneca Township, Monroe, Ohio.[3]Her mother Elizabeth was born about 1805 in Ohio and passed away March 11, 1875 in Seneca Township, Monroe, Ohio. [4]I found an international marriage record for Vincent Dement and Elizabeth Carpenter but am not sure it is for these two people. It is a possible lead.

Below are court documents regarding the estate of Vincent & Elizabeth Dement. It also lists Elley Carpenter and Vincent her husband. Note that Sina and John Pryor are listed.

From death records of children I believe her maiden name is Dement. There is a Sinah Dement listed on the Seneca, Monroe, Ohio census that I believe is her in the household of Vincent and Elizabeth Dement.

Sina is 24 degrees from Cheryl Hess, 29 degrees from John Lennon and 21 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
