Re: New Guinea/ Stark County/ Ohio
In Response To: New Guinea/ Stark County/ Ohio ()
A few surnames associated with the church leadership there were: DAY, BRACY, WHITFIELD, HAMLIN, DAVIS.
A fellow member of AAGGMV has done "some" work on this area of Stark County, Ohio. Her mother is listed on the membership roster, but unfortunately no email address. I will see if I can connect with her and get back to you.
The names they are primarily working with are DAY & WHITFIELD. It seems Stark county was where these families initially settled in Ohio. They later moved south and west to Logan County, Ohio. Logan is the county just north of where your HAMLIN family was also located.
A couple of early records that may be of interest:
...Elizabeth Day & Abraham Whetsel 26 Aug 1875, Logan Co., OH (?)
