Location: Bucyrus, Crawford, Ohio, United States
Surnames/tags: Elton Hamler
Trying to break through an Elton brick wall. My ggg grandfather, Israel Elton has a listed birth year of 1939 in Bucyrus, Ohio in some accounts, Clinton Township Ohio by others. I have found his obituary in the local paper listing his parents as David and Elizabeth. He appears in the 1850 Census of Marion Township, in Henry, Ohio living with an elder couple, Alexander and Mary Hamler, and their adult son James. By the 1960 census, Isreal was an adult and no longer living with the Hamlers. I have not been able to locate cemetery records in the surrounding areas for a David or Elizabeth Elton, I have not yet found any guardianship or probate records. He is but one of three orphans I have found in my tree. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
