CLIFF, DAVIS, EASTLAKE, FICK, FOWLER, GRAY, KEPPLER, WASLEY posted by Toni Darwin on Thursday, June 3, 1999

Subject: CLIFF/GRAY/KEPPLER/FICK/DAVIS Families I am hoping someone has information on the following family: William John CLIFF born 8 Aug 1892 in Alabama, son of William J. CLIFF and Elizabeth Ann FOWLER, married Mary Jane WASLEY born May 1889 in Mayfield, Lackawanna, PA, daughter of John WASLEY and Elizabeth EASTLAKE.

KEPPLER, (in 1979 was living in Bucyrus, Ohio); Isabella born about 1920 in Ohio, married Charles FICK, (in 1979 was living in Hayesville, NC). I know they were living at 851 Walnut Street, Bucyrus at the time of the 1920 census. William died 6 January 1966, place unknown; Mary Jane died 22 July 1979 in Kenton, Hardin, OH. They are buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Bucyrus. According to funeral home records for Mary Jane, she is survived by 3 daughters, 6 grandchildren, 1 foster grandchild and 10 g-grandchildren. I also know that Mary Jane had a sister Rose or Rosina who possibly married a DAVIS. Rose was born in 1880 and died between May 1972 and July 1979. She was last known to be living in Ohio but the town/county are unknown. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I have lots of information on Mary Jane & Rose's siblings and parents who stayed in PA that I would love to share. I would also like to get a copy of Mary Jane's obit, if anyone could help. Thank you for any help. Toni Darwin

BUTTS, COOK, HALDERMAN, KIESS posted by Carolyn Vance on Thursday, June 10, 1999

Hi, all! I'm trying to find out more about my great-great grandparents, who were married Oct 3, 1875 in Crawford County. Does anyone know if there is any sort of way to find the names of their parents from marriage records? The ones from the courthouse don't have them listed. But along that line... how would I find out what church Rev. ?R. C. M. HALDERMAN was at, and if that church has records dating back that far with parents' names? Marion Adelbert BUTTS, born. 1850 in Michigan to Solan and Reveca BUTTS of New York married Christina KIESS (?born 1845 Williamsport PA) to Jacob KIESS and Female COOK. I have found a Jacob COOK in Crawford County in 1844... father of Simeon, who could be Christina's brother Simeon, so the Williamsport PA bit is in doubt. And a first marriage at age 30 seems fishy too. Thank you in advance for any help! I would love to hear from anyone researching these names. Carolyn Vance

CASKEY: Levi CASKEY (born PA) had at least 8 children. I am related through his son Lewis H. who married Sylindia BOGEN. I recently found on the online I.G.I. page that there was a Levi CASKY (and he's about the only one I think) married Rebecca DALE on 3 Sep 1837 Stark Co Oh. This makes sense if this is him b/c his son Lewis H. born June 29, 1843. Also, the parents of Sylindia, Samuel and Sharlottie (BOWARS) BOGEN were married 11/12/1837 in Stark Co OH. Rebecca must have died or divorced before Levi moved to Crawford b/c he married 2nd to Elizabeth STOSE on 4/24/1852.

BOGEN posted by Jodie Shumaker on Tuesday, June 15, 1999

BOGEN: Johann Friderich Nicolas Andreas (and other variants of the name) and his wife Amalia Magdalena had several children, including my Johann Heinrich (1785-1858). In 1840 John Henry and his wife live in Clarendon Twp Marion OH, and in the 1850 census, they live in Whetstone Twp Crawford OH. The BOGENs might have first come to Middletown, Frederick Co MD area, where Friderich Andreas' children were christened. In 1818 a son is born PA. Perhaps they were enroute in 1816 when their son Samuel was born b/c I have found records that he was born in both MD and PA. They later moved to Lovettsville Loudon Co VA by 1824. My line is through Samuel. They were in Stark Co OH and married 1837. This line then moved west to Crawford Co OH.

They had a son Jacob F. who married Anna Maria HOSS, daughter of John Adam II and Christina (GRAUER) HOSS
