CHAPMAN, ESTERLINE, KALER, KIRKENBURG, WALLACE posted by Susan Richardson on Wednesday, December 1, 1999

I am looking for the parents of Henry ESTERLINE born June 1821 Hanover, York, Pa. This family shows up on the 1850 census for Sandusky Township Crawford County. His wife's name is Christina born ca 1823 PA. Their children are David born Aug. 1845, married Mary Cathrine WALLACE; Susanna M. (Susan) born 1844 married John KIRKENBURG; Catharine born 1843, married Henry KIRKENBURG; Mary born 1849; Lydia born 1852; Henry, Jr. born 1853 married Hattie; Martha born 1855; Elva born 1858; Mandana born 1860; Emma born 1865; William born 1865. All the children were born in Ohio. This family moved to Millcreek Township, Williams County OH by the 1860 census. I believe him to be the son of Henry ESTERLINE and Mary from Maryland whose other children include Ephiram born 1825 married Martha Ann CHAPMAN; Andrew born 1817 married Martha ?; Eli born 1827 married Mary? I also believe that John ESTERLINE born Mar 1819 married Elizabeth KALER is the son of Henry and Mary. I would also like to find Christina's maiden name and parents and the date of marriage for Henry and Christina. Susan Richardson 3500 Paint Trail, Fort Worth, TX 76116

ADAMS, RALSTON posted by Aileen Brandis on Wednesday, December 8, 1999

My ancestor, Thomas ADAMS and his wife Elizabeth RALSTON, lived and bore children in Bucyrus, Crawford county from about 1815 to abt 1834. Does anyone know when Crawford county was formed and from what counties? Does any one have access to the 1830 census of Crawford and volunteer a look up for me in regard to Thomas ADAMS? There is a possibility that one of his sons from his first wife, Henry S. ADAMS could also be on the 1830 census. Are there any prior census for Crawford? Or if Crawford wasn't Crawford before 1830 what type of records might be available to search for him? Thank you, Aileen Adams Brandis
