As part of my work on Ohio, I'm attempting to locate and profile former slaves and place them in their correct communities. I've made good progress on the former "Randolph" slaves and have just begun the former "Gist" slaves.
I'm descended of 1) James and Mary (Lafferty) Stuart/Stewart of Cowpasture, Virginia, 2) Charles and Margaret (Deneal) Stewart of Monongalia, Virginia, and 3) James and Rebecca (Marchant) Stewart of Frederick, Virginia.
Worked on Susanna and Josiah not Joshua Pruitt. Have contacted findagrave creator and referred her to 1860 census where his wife and family are listed. His name is clearly spelled Josiah. There is a Joshua Truitt who is married to a Calista who have a child Dicy Ann. Will continue work tomorrow. Sharon.
Thanks for your work on the Welsh communities of Ohio. My 3rd and 4th Great Grandfathers were the ministers of the Radnor Congregational Church, the first in 1838 and the second in 1858. I have created a profile for the second, Rees Powell, in Wikitree. He died in Radnor in 1893. His profile is Powell-11758. I thought you could add him to your Radnor Township Category. On a personal note, we have 16 degrees of separation by marriage through one of your X-Great aunts who married the brother of my 4th great grandfather Hezekiah Fultz. Thanks for your work.
Relative to your Ohio African-American research, I was interested to note that you didn't have info on an underground railroad location in Yellow Springs, Green (or Greene?) County. My family lived there 1930-1936, when a large home at the edge of town called the Fels House was being used for research that my mother and baby sister were subjects in. Mother told me the linen closets in the Fels House had especially long shelves to hide escaped slaves. The little town is also home to Antioch College, which may also be owner of the "Fels House" building and have more information.
