Privately Held Resources

  • Owen County Cousins by Rosemary Fulk Lovell -- I have a copy of this in my possession. It contains the lineage of several families that originated in Pennsylvania and moved through North Carolina and on to Owen County, Indiana. Some of the main surnames are: VOLCK/FULK, FISCUS, ARNEY, CONDER, HAUSER -- Fiscus-32
  • Descendants of Benjamin Courson, Sr.: A record of their Westward movement through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois by Steve Courson -- This is a pdf version of a lineage that one of my distant cousins put together. At least some of the people contained in this lineage are people who were created by the infamous DeCoursey GEDCOM that you'll run into sooner or later. -- Fiscus-32
  • Monroe, Licking, Ohio Resources. Hi, Dave Dardinger I'll be glad to check anyone you want in any of the documents you want and you get the credit! To get to the site, go to the top of the page and click
