    1. ([OHHANCOC])HORNEY - WADE Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Bell HORNEY WADE which was taken at the J. J. Millikin Studio in Bellefontaine, OH. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with Bell likely in her teens or 20's at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Bell and her family: Mary Belle HORNEY was b. 10 Apr 1865 in Richmond, IN to parents Joel HORNEY (1825-1866 son of Solomon HORNEY and Elizabeth SANDERS) and Sarah Bacon MATHER (1825-1911). Bell was one of 7 children born to this couple including, Albert; Helen H.; William; Edward Jesse; Emily Emma; Richard M.; and Mary Belle HORNEY, all born between 1853 and 1865. Bell married James Crue WADE (1863-1933) on 1 Oct 1890 in Logan, OH and they had a daughter, Edna Earle WADE (b. 21 Aug 1892 in Findlay, OH-1981). Bell died 14 Jan 1894 in Zanesfield, OH. Census records provide the following details: 1880 census of Wayne, IN: Sarah B. HORNEY, age 55, Keeping House, born OH, parents born PA Albert HORNEY, son, age 27, a Farmer, born IN, parents born IN/OH Hellen HORNEY, dau, age 25, Teaching, born IN, parents born IN/OH Edward HORNEY, son, age 23, a Teamster, born IN, parents born IN/OH Emily HORNEY, dau, age 21, at Home, born IN, parents born IN/OH Mary Belle HORNEY, dau, age 15, at Home, born IN, parents born IN/OH Lucy HORNEY, dau-in-law, age 22, at Home, born IN, parents born IN Clara HORNEY, dau, age 8 months, born IN, parents born IN I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. Yes, I am descended from Mary V. I think I've had trouble interpreting the older census records, but maybe I should return to them (as you suggest).  I confess, it has been a while, but I also have been doing this research for around 30 years.  So you'd think I'd have it sorted out by now! Thanks for your pointers.

    1. ([OHHANCOC])Re: Surname Shout Out Hancock County - Hales/Hale
    2. There were lots of Hale/Hales families in and around Seneca and Hancock counties - always start with the known, usually that is your own generation, then parents, grandparents and so on - you seem to be starting pretty far back so presumably you know which wife of ggg gf you are descended from, find him and the wife on all the censuses where family is named (1850 on) and identify every member of the household, for wife Mary V a child mary e appears 1850 as newborn, in 1870 she is 21 "without occupation" and apparently married to a "tinner". 1860 there are other Joels but none I could find of the right age. Is Mary E the child you descend from (you need to find the child you descend from). From what I could find he could have married 3 times, always go to the image rather than the index as it may have age and home town, etc. The 1835 marriage to Rebecca Thomas may not be him, see if you can find that family and track them to see if they are different households from Joel/Mary V in 1850 on. Census records should be your best friend, also the images of the marriage records. If you get stuck start with yourself and your parents and work back. And keep an Ohio county map handy. -----Original Message----- From: Kim Golding [mailto:kg@nventure.com] Sent: Thursday, May 31, 2018 4:24 PM To: ohhancoc@rootsweb.com Subject: ([OHHANCOC])Surname Shout Out Hancock County - Hales/Hale Okay, I'm in.

    1. ([OHHANCOC])new data on Cook tree
    2. Kathy Strine
    3. I have been reviewing the information about Dwight Cook's family.. with his wife Elizabeth Blue. She had been married before to a Wm Scott.. and evidently he died in 1851 and a daughter Emily H. Scott was one yr old and she evidently died in 1851 too because she does not show up married with a child in census with Dwight, whom she married in 1852. What I had asked of you was to see if you could find a daughter by name of Susan or Susanna Cook because it gave that name on the birth records. And it gave her name in the census. But then the following year she is no longer mentioned, but a new name came up as Della Opal Cook. born in 1860 where the other girl was born 1859. Where I finally found that they did have Susan was in the census records of 1900. It showed the mother as having six children with only four of them living. I know Samuel, Floyd, Abraham, and Della were the ones living because Chester died of consumption and is buried in Zoar cemetery in Jay co, IN. I expect that Susan Cook is buried there in Kraut Cemetery or whatever one was close to their home. I really don't think they would have a mother joke about having six kids and then give that only four were still living. They didn't just change the name of the child, which is what some thought was why only Della's name showed up in the next census. Not when the mother gives information to the census taker that they had six children and only 4 were still living. So now we know the reason why everyone thought that Susan just changed her name. Perhaps you can go have a look-see at the 1900 census and read the report she gave on her children. Kathy

    1. Hancock Cty, Ohio List Walters, Carnahan, Breitigam
    2. Kathleen Miller via
    3. I am trying to trace the whereabouts of Carrie Viola Walters, born March 2, 1902 In Findlay, Ohio. Her father, David Clifton Walters and Elizabeth Maude Carnahan, lived in Mount Vernon, Ohio. In 1907, Maude left David and moved to Detroit, Michigan to be with another man, taking their two year old son, Chester with her. Carrie was left in the care of her father. David came home to Findlay for a few weeks before going to Detroit and murdering his wife and an unsuccessful suicide attempt. This is recounted in many newspapers. I have him serving time in prison in Michigan in the 1910 and 1920 census. Can't find him in the 1930 census, but he is in Indiana, not far from his sister, in the 1940 census. According to a Findlay newspaper article, Carrie was left in the care of Mrs. Viola Braitigam (Breitigam), however, she is not with James Blaine and Viola Breitigam in the 1910 census. I have been in contact with a grand-daughter-in-law of Viola Breitigam who can shed little light on Carrie. She did mention that she had once met a woman that Viola helped raise but was unsure of her first name as they called her Mrs. Welch (Paul). She did say that the Welch's had a son who lived in Middleton, Ohio. Can anyone help me find Carrie and her brother Chester Gerald Walters (born 1904) near Findlay. Chester may be living with an elderly couple in the 1910 census - John Snavely (who is in his 80's at the time) in Mercer County and is listed as the couple's great grandchild. This murder was followed by many newspapers. I have found accounts of this crime of passion in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan papers as well as the Washington Post. Maude's lover, a man by the name of Kirkpatrick from Mount Vernon, committed suicide a week later, saying he couldn't live without her. Maude may have been the daughter of William R and Ella Carnahan. I can find no obit for her. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
