FRONT, TIDABACK posted by Leslie Tidaback Hilmer on Friday, August 14, 1998

I am seeking a birth record for my grandfather. The problem is that it is nearly impossible to read his place of birth on his marriage certificate. His name was Perry L. TIDABACK. He was born around 1879--1881. It looks like Pension, Renson, or Rensim Ohio. His parents were John TIDABACK and Carrie FRONT. We know that the family lived in Bucyrus for several years. I am wondering if one of the above name places can be found in old records of Crawford County. I looked everywhere for these names and came up empty handed. We had thought his mother's name was Olivia. We were stunned today to learn it was not thanks to the folks at the Livingston Co., IL Genealogical Society who located his marriage record. This mystery just keeps getting bigger every day, even after years of research. I will be visiting in your area in Sept. and would love the chance to see what you have on record. Anything you can tell me in the meantime will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

MARQUIS, PARKS posted by Marcia MacMullan on Tuesday, August 18, 1998

A Presbyterian Church history (Logan Co) registry of members lists Mary PARKS MARQUIS, "ex,...wife of William V. M. from Belmont Co., died Bucyrus about 1860." I can't find a record of William Vance's death in Bellefontaine (where the church record says he lived.) Did they move to Crawford Co and are they buried there? William was b. 1772 in Washington Co PA. Mary was his second wife

GUNDRUM posted by Linda Scheimann on Friday, August 21, 1998

I believe that my great-great grandfather Heinrich GUNDRUM lived in Crawford County OH between 1837 and 1844. He was born in Hesse 24 April 1816 and arrived in America 16 August 1837. He lived first in Ohio, then moved through Indiana and by 1844 settled in Racine and then Washington Co., Wisconsin. I am very interested in any information about GUNDRUM family origins in Hesse and about whether anyone in Crawford Co. has information about a young Heinrich who fits my great-great grandfather's description.
