    1. ([OHSandus])Surname Shout Out
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Please be sure to add vital statistics like date of birth, death, marriage, etc. Happy Hunting!

    1. [OHSandus] WILLETT Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of R. A. WILLETT MD of Elmore, Ohio which was taken at the Moreno & Lopez Studio in New York City. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's or 1890's with the subject appearing to be in his 20's at the time. I believe that this is a photograph of Roland A. WILLETT. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Roland and his family: Roland A. WILLETT was b. 14 Apr 1866 in Fremont, OH to parents Peter WILLETT (b. 8 Oct 1833 in Bedford Co. PA-1913) and Maria A. AUGUSTINE or AUGENSTEIN (b. Mar 1837 in Paulching OH-1915). Roland married Marie QUINCKE or QUINCKIE (1864-1899) on 22 Oct 1890 in Elmore, OH and together they had 4 children including, Florence Hathaway; Marie; Gaillard Peter; and Rudolf Edward WILLETT, all born between 1891 and 1897. Roland married a second time after the death of his first wife Marie. His second wife was Emily "Emma" V. BULLIMER or BULLIMORE or BUILMER (1874-1947). He may have been married a third time as well to Emma C. GRIFFIN (1877-1960). Roland died 26 Feb 1942 in Elmore, OH and is buried in the Harris-Elmore Union Cemetery in Elmore, OH. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Elmore Village, OH: Peter WILLETT, age 65, born Oct 1934, married 42 years, born OH, parents born PA, a Physician Maria WILLETT, wife, age 63, born Mar 1837, married 42 years, 1 child/1 living, born PA, parents born PA Rolland A. WILLETT, son, age 34, born Apr 1866, a widower, born OH, a Physician + 1 Servant 1920 census of Harris, OH: Roland WILLET, age 53, born OH, parents born OH Emma WILLETT, wife, age 45, born OH, parents born England + 1 Boarder 1940 census of Elmore Village, OH: Rolland WILLETT, age 73, born OH, a Medical Doctor Emma WILLET, age 63, born OH I am hoping to locate someone from Roland's family so that this wonderful old treasure 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

ROLLERSVILLE CORNET BAND The band was organized in April, 1877 by Francis McDaniels, former teacher from Millersville, and was really named for him, a fact that has been forgotten through the years. Frank Andrews was the second leader, Henry King was third, Jay Munsel was fourth and Albert S Hutchinson was the fifth and last leader in 1889. Charter members were Francis McDaniels, Henry King. Frank Andrews, Obie Russell, Jay Munsell and Albert Hutchinson, all of whom played cornets; Arthur Shively, trombone; John Eaton, snare drum; Harry Green, bass drum; Robert Oberst, baritone; Conrad Oberst and Martin Seiple, bass; John Jennings, Harvey Stover and Leis Keller, alto.

Add 20 yrs to everyone's 1880 age for the 1900 census. I'm not related to any member of this family. Census records do not record the "specific locality" of a person's birth. Census records only record where a person was born - state or country. 1940 is the last available census at this time. Facts you should know about the early census records - All census records [1790 - 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female. NO specific age was stated for any family member NO place of birth was stated - city, state, or country NO city, town, or village is stated - only the county; however some census takers listed the township NO street address was stated NO marital status was stated - single, married, widowed, or divorced NO family relationship was stated - brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc. NO occupation was stated NO parental birthplaces are stated NO race was stated [but assume "white"] 1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces. Step children are not enumerated as "step" children Adopted children are not enumerated as "adopted" Grand children are not enumerated as "grand children" Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan" Immigration date is not recorded 1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces 1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships OH Vital Records - Prior to September 7, 1949, marriages were record at the county probate courts as each county was formed. At that time, an index of all Ohio marriages was not maintained. It was not until 1949, that a statewide index of marriages that occurred in Ohio was created at the state level with the Ohio Department of Health, Office of Vital Statistics. While the state Office of Vital Statistics maintains indexes of all marriages, the county probate courts where the married couples applied for their license is where the official marriage certificate resides. Ohio law established the Bureau of Vital Statistics on December 20, 1908. On that date, the mandatory registration of birth and death certificates occurred. Since that time, all birth and death certificates have been registered through our office. statement source - Mark Kassouf Compliance Manager/State Mass Fatality Planner/Chief Fraud Officer Ohio Department of Health Office of Vital Statistics 614-644-0165 Need DOB birthplaces for - Edward Pierce - Elizabeth Smith - Clyde Pierce - who did he marry??

I don't believe that my great-grandmother has a birth record, which is why I have been hoping to find a baptismal entry at a church. Her name was Maude Madeline Sherman and she was born 6 January 1878, supposedly in Clyde. I haven't been able to find any entry for her birth in county or state records so far. The same is true for her brother, Clyde Pierce, who was born 2 January 1882. Maude's mother was Elizabeth Smith. I'm familiar with her family, but I don't know anything about Maude's father. His name was Charles or Frank Sherman and he was born in Ohio. I have been in contact with the church where her grandmother's funeral was held and I hope that I will be able to look at records there. I don't know if Maude was baptized, but it would be great to find out that was a record made around the time of her birth. I have the vital records that are available for the rest of the family. I'm looking for church records because I hope they'll contain a helpful detail or lead. Thank you again! I would appreciate any info, but I think that if Maude has a civic birth record it is hard to find. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

He came to the United States in Aug 23 1844 aboard the "Agnes" from Luxembourg with his wife and 7 children. They are living per the 1850 census in Rice, Sandusky Ohio. (wife: Anna Maria "Mary", children: Mary Catherine, Peter "Par", Jenette "Charlotte", Barsley "Barney", Stephanus, Maria Elizabeth, & Nickolaus Jr. ) My question is... much research has been done on John Waggoner Sr re: History and Genealogy of the Wagner, Waggoner-Wagoner Family who lived in the same area. My dna results through Ancestry is saying - there is a connection between Nickolaus Waggoner born in 1781 and John Waggoner Sr born 1758 in Alsace-Lorraine, France. Does anyone know more about John Waggoner's Sr brothers? Their father was Francis Antony "Anthony" Waggoner. I would really love to find the connection. I'm thinking the connection might be pretty close since my Waggoners came to the exact spot of John Waggoner's Sr family. John Waggoner Jr's was born 1790 (very close in age to Nickolaus Waggoner 1781) (side note: Nickolaus Waggoner's son : Barsley Waggoner married possibly "back" into the family... marrying Sarah Reed who is the daughter of Salome Waggoner (John Waggoner jr's daughter).... If the previous connection is found - they would of been cousins) Thank you Kathy Eberle Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
