"One of the early settlers of Randolph township was George Sinks, born in Germany in 1735. He emigrated to America, settling first in North Carolina but not liking it there, he removed to Washington County, Pennsylvania, then to Montgomery county, Ohio, in 1803. His movements have been traced through his removal certificates from one Friends' monthly meeting to another.
"The name of the first wife of George Sinks is not known. In the record of the death of the son Andrew (West Branch records) is given as the son of George and "R." Sinks. The second wife was Mary (Mast) Waggoner, daughter of John Mast Sr. and widow of John Waggoner Sr. She had one son, John Waggoner Jr., born 1775.
"George Sinks died April 1819, leaving a will dated January 28, 1818, and recorded in Montgomery county April 19, 1819 (Will Book A, p. 74), in which he names his wife Mary and the following children: Elizabeth Fouts, Susanna Fouts, Mary Hoover, Eva Yount, Nancy Sheets, Sarah Hoover, Jacob, Andrew, George, 'and my wife's son, John Waggoner.' A daughter, Catherine, probably died prior to the father's death as she is not mentioned in the will. Of these:
