    1. ♠[WVMARSHA]♠ CLAPPER Family Photograph Album
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph album which is mostly empty now but still contains 10 photographs including photographs of: Howard CLAPPER (believed to be Thomas Howard CLAPPER) Robert CLAPPER William CLAPPER Elias WILLIAMSON Mame ELLIOTT Dr. LARNE Bently GEORGE and his wife Alva LEEDORN Ida SMITH + 1 unidentified girl 4-5 years old All of the other photographs have been removed from the album leaving just the names written below/above the empty slots. The photographs included were taken in Zanesville, OH; Fort Wayne, IN; and Wheeling, WV. Based on limited research I have gathered the following information regarding this family: Thomas Howard CLAPPER was b. 9 Sept 1872 in Salt Creek Township, Muskingum Co., OH to parents George Cedrick CLAPPER (1830-1898) and Mary MCWHORTER (1831-1924). Thomas and his siblings are detailed below. Thomas Howard married Margery Ann MOORE (1878-1958) and together they had 6 children including, Omar E.; Ray; Carl M.; Georgia Mildred; and Edna; and Helen CLAPPER all born between 1892 and 1915. Thomas Howard died in Zanesville, OH on 21 Nov 1961. Thomas Howard was living in Salt Creek, OH during the 1880 and 1900 census; Blue Rock, OH during the 1910 census; and Zanesville, OH during the 1920 and 1930 census. Robert F. CLAPPER was b. 6 May 1858 in Muskingum Co. OH to parents George C. CLAPPER (1830-1898) and Mary MCWHORTER (1831-1924). Robert was one of 8 children born to this couple including, Mary Jane; Robert F.; Nancy Ella; Martha Elizabeth "Mattie"; Louisa "Ida"; Marshall; Thomas Howard; Robert appears to have married twice, first to Jenny (last name unknown) on 16 Dec 1881 in Muskingum, OH and she died 3 Dec 1940 in Muskingum Co., OH and is buried in the Chandlersville Cemetery in Chandlersville, OH. His second wife was Mary Eleanor FRAZEE (1857-1946) with whom he had three children including, Ralph Fayette; Mary Hazel; and Floyd Everett CLAPPER, all born between 1892 and 1898. Robert was living in Salt Creek, OH during all census periods from 1860 to 1940. William Elias CLAPPER was b. 18 Mar 1841 in Ohio to parents Joseph C. CLAPPER (1801-1872) and Mary ECHELBERRY (1810-1890). William was one of 10 children born to this couple including, John; George; Parmelia or Pamlelia; Amos S.; Eunice Amelia; Mariah or Maria; William Elias; Josephine; Catharine; and Converse CLAPPER all born between 1828 and 1856. William died 9 Dec 1919 in Zanesville, OH and is buried in the Duncan Falls Cemetery. Elias Waldaugh WILLIAMSON was b. Apr 1859 in Muskingum, OH to parents William Edward WILLIAMSON (1818-1898) and Susanah A. HUNTLEY (1819-1902). Elias was one of 7 children born to this couple including, Emmeline or Emeline; James H.; Fidella or Fedellia "Della"; Richard Edward; William; Annetta "Nett"; and Elias Waldaugh WILLIAMSON, all born between 1842 and 1859. Some records contradict and suggest that his parents were Isaac Newton WILLIAMSON (1822-1891) and Margaret MCWHORTER (1827-1912) and that he was one of 9 children including, James Henry; Robert J.; Elizabeth; John Ralph; Barbara Ellen; William; Elias Waldaugh; Charles N.; and William WILLIAMSON, all born between 1845 and 1868. Elias was living in Salt Creek, OH during the 1870 and 1900 and 1910 census; Harrison, OH during the 1920 and 1930 census; and Taylorsville, OH during the 1940 census. I believe that Mame ELLIOTT is Minnie M. ELLIOTT the daughter of James H. and Mary A. ELLIOTT who were living in Salt Creek, OH during the 1870 census. Elias married Delilah Jane CLAPPER (1867 or 68-1936) in 1885 in Muskingum, OH. The couple had three children including, Golda or Goldie Lorena; Ethel Mae; and Brian Jay or Jaye Bryan or Jay Bryan WILLIAMSON, all born between 1887 and 1896. Elias died 16 Oct 1949 in Muskingum, OH and is buried in the Duncan Falls Cemetery in Duncan Falls, OH. Bentley T. GEORGE was b. abt 1846 in Ohio and he married Mary M. MURPHY (b. 1852) and the couple had two daughters, Jennie P. GEORGE (1874-1942) and Lona C. GEORGE (1876-1958). Bently died in 1929. Census records have Bentley in Kirkwood, OH in 1870; and Horeb, OR in 1900 and 1910 I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful old album of treasures 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

    2. Charles Dobie
    3. David, Many thanks for pointing me to this site. I seem to remember visiting it a few years ago, but now it has more records. However, it's very frustrating as the records exist in a vacuum. For example -- there is a marriage between John Bowman and Elizabeth Reynolds in 1850. Given the year, John well could be a son of Samuel Bowman and Dorothy Smoke, but who knows -- no other information is given except the marriage date and that it occurred somewhere in Marshall County. Question -- do church marriage records exist for West Virginia? Thanks, Chas. Dobie.

    1. [WVMARSHA] BANE - CLEGG Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" two old photographs belonging to the BANE Family of Illinois. The first is one of Walter BANE which was taken at the L. H. Clark Studio in Wenona, IL. The photograph was likely taken in the 1860's or 1870's with Walter appearing to be 4-5 years old at the time. In addition to his name someone has also written "son of Alfred BANE and Mary CLAUSSEN" on the back of the photograph. The second photograph is one of Melissa BANE WHETZEL and Allen BANE. Brother and Sister, they are noted as the children of John BANE and Rebecca CLEGG. Melissa's birthdate is noted as 26 Jan 1863 and Allen's birthdate as 1 Feb 1864 and Allen's death as 1 Feb 1941. This photograph was also likely taken in the 1860's with Allen appearing to be about 3 years and Melissa about 4 years old at the time. There is no studio or location noted on the second photograph. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this family: Walter S. BANE was b. 29 Nov 1865 the son of Alfred BANE (b. 1836 in Marshall Co. WV-d. 1 Feb 1889 in Groveland Township, La Salle Co. IL) and Mary CLOSSEN (b. 19 Sept 1840 in Barr-Castle on the Moselle, Germany-d. 29 Oct 1894 in Groveland Township, La Salle Co. IL). Walter was one of 2 children born to this couple including a brother Mathias. Walter d. 24 Sept 1892 and is buried in the Dana Cemetery in Dana, IL. Allen or Allan Harvey BANE was b. 1 Feb 1864 in Groveland Township, La Salle Co. IL and d. 1 Feb 1941 in Groveland Township, La Salle Co. IL, and is also buried in the Dana Cemetery in Dana, IL, he and his sister, Melissa BANE b. 26 Jan 1863 in Dana, IL were 2 of the children of John BANE (b. 14 Feb 1840 in Moundsville, WV-d. 1905 or 1908) and Rebecca CLEGG (b. 20 Feb 1841 in Moundsville, WV-d. 1925). Melissa and Allen were 2 of the 9 children born to this couple including, Melissa; Nellie May; Allen; Jason; Lydia; Martha; Martin Thomas; Perry Beeler; and Samuel BANE. Melissa married Harry WHETZEL or WHETZAL and died March 1948 in Dana, IL. Census records provide the following details: 1870 census of Groveland Township, La Salle Co.

    1. [WVMARSHA] EVANS, James and Mary and SMITH, Mary A. - Union Twp, Marshall Co - 1860 & 1870
    2. Nancy Edwards via
    3. A few days ago I requested assistance identifying Mary Evans, wife of James Evans, who is found on the 1870 Marshall Co Census with children, Jane, Elizabeth, Sarah and William. A couple of Listers responded right away (thank you) and both said their findings indicate that Mary Evans is the former Mary Wallace. I've followed up on the info provided, and it does appear that these Listers are correct, and that this Mary Evans is not the former Mary Smith, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Callahan/Callaghan) Smith, as I had hoped. I do think I also discovered who the couple (John and Elizabeth Smith) on the 1870 Census just before James and Mary Evans are. It seems that John Smith is, as I guessed, John W. Smith, son of Joseph and Elizabeth (Callahan/Callaghan) Smith and his wife Elizabeth may well be the former Elizabeth Wallace, sister of Mary (Wallace) Evans. So, something new learned through this even if it isn't what I was initially searching. Now I'm back to square one with Mary A. Smith since I've obviously been traveling the wrong pathway. So - does anyone know where Mary A. Smith is after the 1860 Census for Marshall Co, VA/WV where she is found with parents, Joseph and Elisabeth (Callahan/Callaghan) Smith, and siblings, James, William, Samuel B., John W., Joseph and Lucy? Mary A. Smith was born Belmont Co, OH ca 1845. Her father, Joseph, died in 1862 - coal mining accident. Her mother, Elisabeth, is still in Marshall County on the 1870 Census with children, William and Lucy. Asking for further assistance from sks. Thank you.
