Re: Manumission Papers Filed In Logan County, Ohio

Thanks for the info Art. Yes, Soloman and his brother David originally purchased land in Stark Co., OH directly from the federal government in 1823. Interestingly I did find them registered in Southampton Co., VA that same year. I will check the lead in Stark, Co. as they probably had to register there in order to purchase the land. I did look through the Turpin transcription and found what you found. I guess the key is Stark Co!

That Jeffery Day has always been on my mind but I have not had a chance to follow the lead yet. Thanks again for your insight!
