I am descended from the Graham and Ward Families of Knox County: Mount Vernon, Brandon and Miller townships (date range is: 1871 to present)
One of the Grahams married a Clutter and lives in Mount Vernon.
I really appreciate you checking but Nathaniel and Barbara Kenney are not related to me. I am looking my my Grandmother Lucy Alice Kenney Fitz's parents Michael and Mary Jane Kenney In the 1880 census they and their 8 children were living in Zanesville in Muskingam county and I had hoped they may have moved to Knox county where their daughter Lucy Alice and her husband Marion Homer Fitz lived My Father and his 3 siblings were raised in Mt Vernon and my Grandparents are buried there Thanks again Valerie
Thanks for the additional information. I don't know any more about the property, etc. Thomas, of course, died years before Henrietta---he was much older. Henrietta moved to Iowa with her second son, Elias Spry. We have never been able to find out what happened to son #1, Thomas. Did he die at an early age? Or what happened to him? I thought he might have been killed in the Civil War since he was about the right age, but could find no evidence of that. (Elias Spry served in the War from the state of Illinois.) Henrietta is buried in Bourne Cemetery which is about 5 miles north of Wiota, Iowa. Her side of the three-person monolith stone says that she is "Mother of E. Spry; wife of T. Spry." the other two on that stone are Elias and his wife Emily Lambert Spry. If Henrietta ever got any more from Lawrence's estatte, I wouldn[t know. --Maxine
Thank you for the info regarding the Magers family. I have a copy of a court document (somewhere!) that I got at the Court House in Mount Vernon, Ohio, that says Lawrence Magers died intestate, leaving Wm Spry with the tax bills on property that they owned together. Wm Spry was suring the Magers siblings (which included his brother, Thomas, and wife Henrietta Magers Spry) for the tax money on their part of the property. Court ruled in Wm's favor and I think he was awarded the land. Anyway it did list the siblings' names and showed that Henrietta was a Magers, not Meyers as some had said.-Til later, Maxine...
