Ohio Project Members
- Marj Adams - focus on husband Thomas Green's 2nd gr grandfather, Ira Green. Possibly born 13 April 1820, location possibly Franklin County. He died there in 1898, burial info of wife "Eliza, wife of Ira Green" d. 1889 on the gravestone in Reynoldsburg Methodist Hill Cemetery. Ira's death notice in Columbus Dispatch by 2nd son John omitted Ira's parents' names. birth date was calculated from death date.
- Daniel Amon - My Great-Great-Grandfather immigrated from Slovakia to the United States and later settled in Columbus, Ohio. I still have family that resides in Ohio even though my parents moved to South Carolina in the 80s.
- Steven Bohlen - Areas of interest include research of my paternal Bolin line, as well as several other families that at one time lived or still live in Franklin, Ross, Fayette, Highland, Greene, and Fairfield counties. Member of Ohio, Fairfield Co., Ross Co., & Fayette Co. Genealogical Societies. Main surnames of interest with connections to Ohio include Bolin/Bohlen, Goldsberry, Garner, English, Mountjoy, Stermer, Creed, Uncles, Fogle, and McCoy. Looking to help the project any way that I am able.
- Joelle Colville-Hanson - I got lots of Scottish immigrants in Washington County. If that’s of interest to anyone I’d love to work together.
- Sandy (Doutt) Garner - Most of my family still reside in Ohio. Counties of interest include Cuyahoga, Erie, Huron, Lorain, and Tuscarawas. Surnames include: Doutt, Donohoe, Willoughby, Vining, Banks, Higgins, Moroney. Especially interested in information regarding ggrandfather Thomas Donohoe, ggrandfather William Vining, 2nd ggrandfather Lorenzo Devaro Vining (this lineage dates to colonial Mass.).
- Diane Hildebrandt - Focus on Muskingum County. My third great-grandfather was Dr. Increase Mathews (aka Matthews). With the assistance of his uncle, Brigadier-General Rufus Putnam (appointed the first Surveyor-General of the Northwest Territory) and Levi Whipple, he founded a settlement called Springfield southeast of the juncture of the Licking and Muskingum Rivers. This name was changed to Putnam in 1814 because there was another settlement by that name. The town of Putnam was annexed by Zanesville in 1872. Dr. Increase Mathews built a stone house in 1805. The Dr. Increase Mathews House is now a museum owned and operated by the Muskingum Historical Society. Dr. Increase also built the Stone Academy. Increase's brother, John Mathews, was one of the first 48 to Ohio. His sister, Susannah, and brother-in-law, Jonathan Stone, settled in Belpre. Jonathan was also one of the 48. Sometime after 1776, this branch of the family dropped one T from their surname. In fact, the Revolutionary War records for their father Daniel Mathews Jr. uses both forms of their surname.
- Dan Hood - I live in Southern Ohio and am interested in the territory and early statehood settlement of Southern Ohio. I am initially from California, but have discovered several family members who lived in Southern Ohio. Counties I'm interested in include: Adams, Brown, Highland, Pike, Ross, Scioto, and surrounding counties. Surnames include: Records, Hughey, Finch, Fenton, and Elrod among others.
- Carole (Kirch) Bannes - My family has deep roots in Knox, Coshocton and Tuscarawas counties in central Ohio. When I retired in 2004, I started a Knox County Families project and ended up with over 92,000 names, all linked and sourced. Unfortunately, it was stored on the old RootsWeb (World Connect) site, where it was available to anyone who wanted to see (but not download) it. As most of you know, that site went belly-up several years ago. The research now resides on TribalPages (WikiTree couldn't absorb a GED that large), but the sources are not showing up there. :( At any rate, I'm really good at finding anyone who ever lived in Knox, Coshocton, or Tuscarawas County. My family names from Ohio are Kirch, Mizer, Baker, Russell, Fry, Snyder, Yearous, and Wiggins. The Russells go back to the Mayflower; the Mizers (Meiser/Miser) to the Palatine Migration.
- Emily (Loy) Martinez - I have family all over the state. My family started in Muskingum and Perry Counties. Then some moved north into Allen County. They spread from those. I was actually born in Licking County. Mordecai Edwards who was my 3rd great-grandfather started what I believe was the 1st Methodist Church in the state in Muskingum County. My family lines are Edwards, Shirer, Shroyer, Binkley, Sturtz, Bagent, Bainter, Buker, Gaumer, Barrett, Bell, Lecky, and the list goes on. Some ran newspapers, some were farmers, some ran funeral homes, some were doctors, some were teachers, some were builders. I lived there until I graduated from college. My brother still lives there. I think that the majority of my extended family still lives there. I am an Ohio State grad. I am definitely here to help!
- Mike Moriarty - Focus on Perry County. During the 1830's and 1840s, my GGG-grandfather (Kircher) and his family came from Geispolsheim (Bas-Rhin) and lived all around Perry county (Somerset, Saltillo, Harrison, McLuney). My gg-grandfather (Slinger)/mother(Kircher) both died in the Cholera epidemic of 1849, whence the family moved on to Saint Louis, New York and elsewhere. In addition to two decades of farming in the county, the family was active in the Dominican order of priests and nuns, with three OP's in one generation who worked in education in Ohio, Boston, New York and elsewhere.
- Saundra Stewart - Ohio was once the wild frontier for the new United States. So, I'm attempting to cover the history and first settlers of all counties and their townships in order to track individuals and families during their westward movement. I'm also profiling those of specific ethnic settlements like "African-American Settlements", "Welsh Settlements", etc.
- Raymond Stokely - The Stockley/Stokely's emigrated to the Eastern Shore of Virginia in 1636. My 6x Great Grandfather John Stockley John Stockley founded a 2700 acre homestead in Accomack County (1664), Virginia. John's decedents. Woodman, Oliver and Prettyman settled in Sussex County, Delaware. My 3x Great Grandfather, David Stokely David Stokely, upon the death of his father Prettyman (1790) moved westward from Sussex County via Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and the Ohio River arriving in Marietta, Ohio in 1795. In the spring of 1799 David Stokely came up the Muskingum River from Marietta to Putnam, a part of present-day Zanesville. He built a cabin on “Congress Land” near the site of the Putnam foundry. In 1797 Stokely was deeded 100 acres of land in Newton Township in the Bear Creek Allotment, Eighth Range, and Lot 36 of the Third Township and Lot 31 in the Fourth Township. In 1805 Stokely moved to his land in Newton Township, south of Jonathan Creek. Stokely built a log cabin that year and the family occupied it for the next ten years. The cabin was torn down in 1815. The back wing of the existing homestead was built on the site where the cabin once stood.The larger front portion of the house was added in 1840. Stokelys lived in that home until 1981. The Homestead was a station on the Underground Railroad and was visited by Gen Morgan's men during his raid into Ohio in 1863. I am researching the histories of the Civil War Regiments my ancestors were in, the 32nd, 62nd 56th and 73rd OVIs and the Underground Railroad in Ohio
