Re: Walden's ...North Carolina & Ohio
In Response To: Re: Walden's ...North Carolina & Ohio ()
Thanks for your response and suggestions. Your statement "the generations who were adults in the 20's and 30's are the most challenging". Related, but how, is nothing but the truth.
I've have Paul Heinegg's book and have searched and searched, read and re-read. I can't seem to directly hook into anyone prior to finding them in Ohio. My "hunch" is a John, the son of a John, who was the son and grandson of two William's. See how confusing it gets.
With these folks, at least mine, was a migration into Ohio and finding them in Census and other court records from the 1820's and 30's their path seemed to take a North and West pattern from Ross County into Pickaway, Clark, Champaign, Logan, Union & Hancock counties.
From Mr. Heinegg's list of surnames there is a fairly large number that connect to my other lines, direct and collateral.
Artis, Allen, Bowles, Barnett, Chavis, Copeland, Dempsey, Dolby, Findley, Francis, Goff, Haithcock, Hamlin, Hawkins, Hubbard, Jeffries, Locus/Lucas, Moss, Mumford, Newsom, Prichard, Scott, Stewart, Taborn, and of course, Walden.
All of these intersect someway with my lines and in the above mentioned counties.
Again thanks, as you can see, I need all the help I can get.
