    1. [OHSUMMIT] LISENBEY or LISENBY - BOYER Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Della LISENBEY of Canton, IL which was taken at the Moran Studio in Canton. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's or 1890's with Della likely about 2-3 years old at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Della and her family: Della Marie LISENBY was b. Jul 1891 in Canton, IL to parents Reuben or Ruben M. LISENBY (1847-1917) and Jannie or Jennie E. WHITE (1849-1923). Della was one of 9 children born to this couple including, Oscar; Kossath; Daisey; Lulu A. M.; Ornona; Lucius or Lucas Alemrian; Freddrick or Fredrick Cornellison; Nettie; and Della LISENBY, all born between 1872 and 1891. Della married Charles A. BOYER (son of George A. BOWYER and Katie SCHLAMORRY) on 23 Aug 1919 in Summit Co., OH and she died in 1974 and is buried at the Globe Mills Cemetery in Globe Mills, PA. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Lake City, Florida: Reuben LISENBY, age 53, born May 1847, married 31 years, born TN, parents born TN, a House Painter Jane LISENBY, wife, age 50, born Oct 1849, married 31 years, 10 children/6 living, born IL, parents born IL Oscar LISENBY, son, age 27, born Sept 1872, born IL, a House Painter Lucius LISENBY, son, age 19, born Dec 1880, born IL, a Farm Laborer Fred LISENBY, son, age 16, born Apr 1884, born IL, a Day Laborer Nettie LISENBY, dau, age 15, born Sept 1884, born IL, at School Della LISENBY, dau, age 8, born Jul 1891, born IL, at School I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family.

    1. [OHSUMMIT] RICE - HALL Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Beatrice RICE which was taken at the Henry J. Reynolds Studio in Eugene, OR. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Beatrice an infant at the time. Based on limited research I found two possible matches: OPTION #1: Beatrice Dorothy RICE b. 3 Mar 1906 in Springfield, OR to parents Jay Clair RICE (1884-1963) and Una DAVIS (1884-1918). Beatrice had one sibling b. 1905 and died in 1906. Beatrice married Robert Harrison SEARS (1906-1952) and they had a son, Richard Roland SEARS (1926-2004). Beatrice married a second time to Jack Ralph HALL (1888-1969) and she died 10 Mar 1972 in Akron, OH. OPTION #2: Beatrice C. RICE b. 2 Jul 1899 in Myrtle Creek, OR to parents James "Jim" Austin RICE Sr. (1868-1948) and Lillian M. DUNNAVIN or DUNNIVAN (1874-1915). Beatrice was one of 5 children born to this couple including, Via or Vie Elizabeth; Bernice or Berenice Lillian; James Austin Jr.; and Winton S. "Ted" RICE, all born between 1897 and 1906. After their Mother's death their Father did remarry and have another child, a son William L. RICE b. 1929. Beatrice married Adam Mathias WILHELM (1899-1973) and together they had two children including a son Roger Mathias WILHELM (1931-1981). Beatrice died 3 Nov 1981 in Eugene, OR. Her sister Bernice or Berenice married Mr. REYNOLDS. I am hoping that someone from one of these families can confirm Beatrice's identity so that the 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. [OHSUMMIT] BARTLETT Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified only as "Mrs. BARTLETT" which was taken at the G. J. Snook Studio in Akron, OH. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's or 1890's with the woman in the photograph likely in her 30's at the time. I'm hoping to locate someone from this BARTLETT Family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. Based on limited research I believe I've been able to determine that this is most likely Emogene J. BARTLETT who was the wife of Albert BARTLETT. Census records for this couple provide the following information: 1865 census of Pomfret, NY: Albert W. BARTLETT, age 26 Emogene BARTLETT, age 22 1880 census of Akron, OH: Albert A. BARTLETT, age 38, a County Recorder, born NY, parents born MA/Canada Emogene J. BARTLETT, wife, age 36, Keeps House, born NY, parents born NY Mary E. BARTLETT, dau, age 19, Works in Records office, born NY Jennie A. BARTLETT, dau, age 17, at Home, born NY + 1 Servant 1910 census of Stanton, FL: Albert A. BARTLETT, age 69, married 52 years, born NY, parents born MA/Canada, a Farmer Emogene J. BARTLETT, wife, age 65, married 52 years, 4 children/1 living, born NY, parents born Germany/NY + 1 Servant I am hoping to be able to return the photograph to its rightful place, with family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [OHSUMMIT] ZELLERS - WEYRICK Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Grant Lincoln ZELLERS which was taken at the F. L. Goff Studio in Elkhart, IN sometime in the 1880's. Grant appears to be in his teens at the time the photograph was taken. In addition to his name, someone has written the name "Nettie" at the bottom on the back of the photograph as if this might be the person to whom the photograph belonged at one time. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Grant and his family: Grant Lincoln ZELLERS was b. 21 Jan 1865 in Lebanon, PA to parents Isaac W. ZELLERS (b. abt 1839 in Pennsylvania) and Amanda SARGE (b. abt 1842 in Pennsylvania). When Grant was 7 years old the family moved to Elkhart, IN, and then at the age of 17 with his Mother he moved to Winston, MO. Grant worked for the Railroad and evidentially ended up on Goodland, KS. Grant was married more than once, first to Clara B. JACKSON (b. 16 Mar 1867 in Illinois) on 14 Nov 1888 in Carrollton, MO; Clara died in 1913 in Goodland, KS. His second marriage was to Helen Mildred BROWN (b. 13 Jul 1889 in Circleville, KS to parents Charles Lincoln BROWN and Florence L. BORDNER) on 19 Oct 1921 in Goodland, KS with who he had two children, George W. and Paul Brown ZELLERS, twins born 29 Aug 1922 in Goodland, KS. Grant died 22 Sept 1922 in Goodland, KS as a result of an apparent suicide by gunshot and is buried in the Holton Cemetery in Holton, KS. Grant's obituary lists one brother John ZELLERS of New York, NY; sisters - Mrs. Clara DEAN of Elkhart, IN; Mrs. Hattie BISHOP of Cassopolis, MI; and Mrs. Cora WEYRICK of East Akron, OH; a step-brother R. J. KIMBERLING of Winston, MO; and a half-brother Ralph KEMBERLING (spelled differently here) of Three Forks, MT in addition to his wife and two infant sons. Census records provide the following details: 1880 census of Elkhart, IN: Amanda ZELLERS, age 37, Works in Paper Mill, born PA, parents born PA Grant ZELLERS, son, age 15, Works in Paper Mill, born PA, parents born PA John ZELLERS, son, age 7, born IN, parents born PA 1900 census of Wellington, KS: Grant ZELLERS, age 35, born Jan 1865, married 10 years, born PA, parents born PA, a RR Trail Dispatcher Clara J. ZELLERS, wife, age 33, born Mar 1867, married 10 years, no children, born IL, parents born Scotland I am hoping to locate someone from this ZELLERS 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. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Harry TRESCOTT which was taken at the Griffin Studio in Wilkes Barre, PA.

    3. It's a free look up but you can't view it unless you are subscribed. What is written in the print out isn't always what is actually IN the census. However I think I've found him. Possibly ........ Elmer J. Nichols......... (maybe later went by J.E. Nichols) or visa versa......... HURON county. Age 20. This could be my guy. The license says he is 29 (maybe 27) hard to read........ in 1937. So in the 1930 census in Huron Co. this Elmer J. Nichols is 20 But this is why I need to see the actual image. I may need to just go to my library where I can use it for free Janean -----Original Message----- From: ohsummit-bounces@rootsweb.com [mailto:ohsummit-bounces@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of Christine Gray via Sent: Thursday, June 11, 2015 10:15 PM To: OHSUMMIT@rootsweb.com Subject: Re: [OHSUMMIT] Census The 1940 census is *free* at ancestry.com The censuses are also free, along with many other records/images at familysearch.org Christine Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.
