    1. ([OHERIE])LOCKWOOD - ROUSH - FERGUSON Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of four photographs including two of Clara Arleen LOCKWOOD and her Mother Elma ROUSH which were taken when Clara was just 4 months old. The photograph is printed on the front of a postcard so I'm guessing it was taken between 1905 and 1920. Elma is identified as the daughter of Emma & Albert ROUSH. The third photograph is a group snapshot photograph identified with the name Helen LOCKWOOD which includes a large family group (18 members) photograph taken on the lawn next to a home. I'm guessing that this photograph was likely taken in the 1920's or 1930's. The fourth photograph is one of Mary ROUSH, Leah ROUSH MORRIS, and Berthel MORRIS which was taken at the Atherton Studio in Reed City, MI. This photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Mary identified as the "Mother of Albert ROUSH" and Leah as "Albert's Sister". Berthel MORRIS appears to be about 5-6 years old, her Mother Leah likely in her 20's or 30's, and Mary ROUSH likely in her 40's or 50's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding the family: Clara Arleen LOCKWOOD was b. 21 Dec 1916 Maple Valley Township, Montcalm Co., MI to parents Charles Francis LOCKWOOD (1886-1932) and Elma M. ROUSH (1898-1979). Clara was one of three children born to this couple including, Clara Arleen; Charles Harvey; and Richard Albert LOCKWOOD all born between 1916 and 1919. Clara's Mother remarried after her Father's death, she married William Charles DICKEN (1887-1971). Clara married Howard F. INSLEY (1900-1983) and they had two children, Lorane INSLEY EDWARDS (1936-2015) and Jeffery Lee INSLEY (b. 1951). Clara died 19 Aug 1995 in Ionia, MI and is buried in the Smyrna Cemetery in Smyrna, MI. Emma Jane BANNEN was b. 13 Sept 1877 in Beverly, Wentworth, Ontario, Canada to parents Richard BANNON (1840-1919) and Margaret ARMSTRONG (1842-1929) who were married on 26 Apr 1864 in Wentworth, Ontario, Canada. Emma was one of 13 children born to this couple including, Edward; John H.; Catherine Effie; William; Robert Alexander; Isabella; Margaret; Emma Jane; James Herbert; Richard Roy; Walter; Annie; and Thomas BANNEN, all born between 1865 and 1896. Emma married Albert Michael ROUSH (1872-1955) on 29 Mar 1897 in Carol, MI and they had two children including Elma M. ROUSH (1898-1979) and Elzora ROUSH (1899-1948). Albert ROUSH was b. 6 Mar 1872 in Hastings, MI to parents Michael ROUSH and Mary FERGUSON identified below and he died 7 Feb 1955 in Belding, MI. Mary L. FERGUSON ROUSH was b. Sept 1844 in Ohio to parents George Washington FERGUSON (1816-1877) and Christina GUENTHER (1819-1885). Mary was one of 11 children born to this couple including Mary L.; James William; Betsey Ann; George W.; John Martin; Aurora Butler; Charles Michael; Franklin FERGUSON and three others, all born between 1841 and 1873. Mary died in 1922 and is buried in the Reynolds Township Cemetery in Howard City, MI. Leah Elizabeth ROUSH was b. 22 May 1869 in Castleton Township, Barry Co., MI to parents Michael ROUSH (1841-1921) and Mary FERGUSON (b. 1844) who were married 22 Jun 1865 in Sandusky, OH. Leah was one of 8 children born to this couple including, William; George E. S.; Leah Elizabeth; Albert Michael; Willard; Samuel D.; William Henry; and James Arthur ROUSH, all born between 1867 and 1883. Leah married John MORRIS and had only the one child. After the death of her husband John Leah married Ruel F. NEWBERRY (1860-1901) on 6 Jan 1900 in Sault St. Marie, MI. Leah died 3 Jun 1908 in Reynolds Township, Montcalm Co., MI. Berthel "Sherry" MORRIS was b. 19 Apr 1887 in Clare, MI to John MORRIS (b. 1820) and Leah ROUSH and she married Samuel Lawrence FLEMING (1878-1963) on 28 May 1904 in Alma, MI and together they had five children including Baby Boy; Wallace Emerson; John Donald; Leah Isabel or Isabell; and Elizabeth FLEMING, all born between 1908 and 1915. Berthel d. 11 Jul 1979 and is buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Alma, MI. I am hoping to return these photographs to the family and would appreciate you contacting me if you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be. Thanks, Shelley

    1. ([OHERIE])EVERETT or EVERITT Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified only as "One of the EVERETTS" which was taken at the Weeks & Hodgman Studio in Sandusky, OH. The photograph was taken in the 1860's with the toddler in the photograph likely about 2 years old. I believe that the photograph is of one of the children of Elijah EVERITT and Margaret Ann JOHNSON, John Edward; Charles Monroe; or Mary Ellen EVERITT. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding this family: Elijah EVERITT (b. 22 Mar 1838 in Sandusky, OH-d. 22 Apr 1901 in Denver, CO the son of John EVERITT and Mary Eleanor NEAL) and Margaret Ann JOHNSON (1837-1930) had three children including, John Edward; Charles Monroe; and Mary Ellen EVERITT all born between 1861 and 1866. John Edward EVERITT was b. 23 Apr 1861 in Huron, OH and married Eva Meora EVERITT (1866-1914) and together they had three children including, Simeon or Simon "Simmie" R.; Edna Meora; and Lura Ardell "Della" EVERITT all born between 1884 and 1888. John died 16 Oct 1949 in Denver, CO. Mary Ellen EVERITT was b. 4 Feb 1866 in Erie, OH and married William Lockwood SKELTON (1868-1913) and together they had a daughter, Hazel L. SKELTON (1893-1964). Mary Ellen died 6 Oct 1938 in Los Angeles, CA. Her daughter Hazel may have married Mr. EDMON. I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that this precious old photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. ([OHERIE])Memorial Day
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my scheduling off. Hope you don't mind... With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has to be an ancestor from this county. :) Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff. Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend! Rick B Admin

    1. [OHErie] Samuel Cook Re: OHERIE Digest, Vol 11, Issue 2
    2. gloria ishida
    3. Jim, Found in familysearch 1850 census, Erie County, Groton Township., Samuel W. Gook, b New York, age 20, labourer on William Horston farm. But this is next door to Chauncey Cook family from New York. I did not see any other Samuel Cook in that census, but maybe the family didn’t register. Familysearch is free, just put in as much information as possible. Do you know where in Wisconsin? There are 3 Samuel cooks in the Wisconsin state census 1855. No birthplace given. You can see the image if you make a user name and password for familysearch. Free.

    2. Jim Cook
    3. Gloria, thank you for the response. The family has not been found in the 1850 census. They are listed in the 1855 Wisconsin census in Columbia Co. My problem is that I don't have good dates for when they left Wales. They are not listed in the 1851 British census. The first place I've found them in the US is that 1855 Wisconsin census. I have no information that supports the family story that they were in Sandusky.

Williams in 1879--------- In 1827, immigration rapidly increased till 1834, when a serious impediment to business occurred by the appearance of Asiatic cholera, wholly suspending, for a few months, all varieties of industry, except for the care of the sick. That year the emigration from Europe, principally Germany, was a perfect flood, and at every steamboat landing there were sick and dying in numbers so great as to drive a great portion of the inhabitants from town.

She was 87 years old. Born in Cleveland, Ohio to Frank M. Bunsey and Edna C. Schwartz, Doris moved with her family to Mansfield in 1940 where she attended St. Peter's High School. She later graduated from St. John's School of Nursing in Cleveland, Ohio leading to a 48-year career as a nurse. Doris married Edgar H. Gesing in 1955 and together they raised 6 children in Mansfield, Ohio. Doris, an early champion of women's rights, believed that a clean house was a sign of a misspent life. Working as a nurse while raising her children, Doris spent her limited free time volunteering as a member of the St. Peter's School Board, and with the Girl Scouts of America. Doris was an avid bridge and tennis player, a voracious reader, and a lifelong Cleveland Indians fan. She was a loving mother, dedicated older sister to her five siblings, and a fiercely loyal friend. She was a role model to her three daughters and to all women whose lives she touched and leaves shoes that will be hard to fill. Doris is survived by sisters, Joan Bunsey of New York, New York and Barbara Walker of Albuquerque, New Mexico; daughters, Catherine (Richard) Wiehe of Mansfield, Ohio, Elizabeth (Brian) Lambright of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and Margaret (Andrew Norris) Gesing of Williamsburg, Virginia; sons, Thomas (Kathy) Gesing of Mansfield, Ohio, Michael (Kim) Gesing of Mansfield, Ohio and Eric (Michele) Gesing of Shelby, Ohio and their son Gabe; along with a host of step-grandchildren, great-grandchildren and long-time friends.
