I'm trying to organize things a bit so I've made threads in the Discussion Forum for each county. If you know where the people you are researching lived, please post your queries, information, etc. in the appropriate thread/county. If you don't know where in Northeastern Ohio the people you are researching lived or if they lived in multiple counties, go ahead and post to the Comment Wall below. Also, if you feel your post is urgent or you want it to be viewed by the whole group, post to the Comment Wall. As always, everyone is also still welcome to start their own discussion threads.

Since Genealogy Wise doesn't allow the option of displaying ALL Discussion Forum threads, some won't appear below. If you don't see the county or discussion that you are looking for below, click on "View All" in the bottom right of the Discussion Forum and you should be able to
find it there. Thanks!

Sara - regarding your Cook connection, Elva Cook b. NY m. Usner, then Houge lived in Akron, Ohio where my grandmother Grace M. Usner was born and married Raymond Robinson.
Do any of these names sound familiar?

My husband's LEACH ancestors were in Geauga County until about 1850. Look forward to discussions with other Geauga researchers. Sue Edminster

Most if not all my paternal ancestors came from Ohio, though they started in PA or MD. My main line, FRY lived in Stark County, but were also in Summit and Tuscarawas County. My paternal grandmother's parents were born in PA but moved to Ohio. My FREED ancestors are from my paternal great-grandmother's first husband. They lived mainly in Columbiana County.

Some of my paternal ancestors come from or lived in northeastern Ohio. Joab & Marick Rockwell lived in Brecksville, Cuyahoga County first, and Marick lived in Hinckley, Medina County from the mid 1820s to 1855.
Edward Johnston & wife Margaret Timmons lived in Cuyahoga County area from c 1810 & later, their daughter, Margaret married Marick Rockwell in 1824.
Andrew Linman lived in Medina County, I believe the Brunswick area c 1830s. And all the children of these people.
