After much research I have found that my ggg grandmother Nancy JONES ROBINSON was born in Bainbridge, Ross County, Ohio in 1859.

I am seeking information regarding FPOC and churches attended in Ross County and surrounding areas. Any potential leads from texts or electronic sources would be appreciated.

Nancy JONES ROBINSON (b. 10/18/1859 d. 7/30/1950) was the daughter of John Wesley JONES and Mary (also listed as Martha) ARMSTRONG JONES. John W was listed on the 1860 census as living in Bainbridge, Ross County and was listed as an "M.E. Minister."

I am seeking to gather additional information about him to learn more of his activities and hopefully background information.

John W and Mary's first 2 children were born in PA where Mary was from. Their 2 youngest children were born in Bainbridge, Ross County, Ohio in 1859 and 1860. It seems that John W passed away between 1860 and 1870, but this has not yet been confirmed. Mary JONES and her 3 daughters were living in Lucas County, Ohio by 1870.

Any potential leads regarding religious institutions of FPOC in Ross or surrounding counties during the 1850s-1860s would be appreciated.
