Re: [OH] Ohio Records & Pioneer Families vol XLVII

Hey Art,

I'd be tickled to find a connection to your people! We have some mystery conncetions in Ohio, my great grandfather, William Bellefield Johnson, would ride the train from Pittsburgh to Ohio to visit family, but no one living knows who or where. We're working on it.

My immediate Morris family lived in Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia (another great grandfather, Joseph Edward Morris, was an AME minister who was posted all over the place) and they all went to school at Wilberforce along with their Woodyard cousins. Their other cousins, the Richardsons and Morris', lived in Frederick County, Maryland and Cleveland, Ohio and they went to Wilberforce too.

I just found a whole bunch of new Ohio photos from the early 1900's through the '20s. My cousin had them. We're going through them now. Most seem to be graduation photos from Wilberforce circa 1916-1919.

I'll let you know if I find anything!
