Mary unknown was born in Province of,Ulster,Ireland. She died on 22 Oct 1825 in Mifflintown,Pa.. She was buried in Bell Cemetery,,Mifflintown,Pa.. She married Richard Bell in Ulster,Ireland.

They had the following children:

F i Martha Bell was born on 21 Jun 1792. She died on 21 Dec 1877. Another site has her dying in Juniata PA 1851.
M ii Nathaniel Bell was born on 21 Nov 1794. He died in 1862.
F iii Rebekah Bell was born on 15 May 1796. She died on 11 Mar 1875.
F iv Mary Ann Bell was born on 13 Apr 1800. She died in 1874.
F v Sarah Bell was born on 5 Jun 1802. She died in 1847.

Other Bell families entering Ohio at their time go back to John Bell from the same place in Ireland.
Solomon Raudebaugh was my great grandfather
Solomon was my 3rd great-grandfather, also. SO we must be cousins. I have Richard Bell's parents as Richard Bell (1695-1764) and Anne Kirk (?-1775). I have Martha's death as in 1857 instead of 1877, but I will do further research on that. How are we related? My Mom told me when I was little that John (son of Soloman and Martha Raudebaugh) and Susannah Soliday(married to John) were brought as babies from PA in covered wagons. John and Susannah's daughter Bertha was my grandfather's mother (Walter Thomas Smith). Bertha married Emmet Quimby Smith. Thanks for the information.

John A. Raudebaugh

This venerable and highly honored citizen of Wayne county, Ohio, was an
interesting man to talk to, for he could tell of the wondrous
transformations he had witnessed in this locality since the pioneer days, he
himself taking no small part in the material development of his community,
and his life, having been honorable and usefully spent, is worthy of
conspicuous mention in this history.
John A. Raudebaugh was born in Juniata county, Pennsylvania, in 1826,
the son of Solomon and Martha (Bell) Raudelbaugh. The parents of the
latter, who came from Ireland, were Richard and Mary Bell, who first settled
in Pennsylvania, where Martha Bell was born. Neither she nor her husband
ever came to Ohio. The paternal grandparents of the subject were Jacob and
Elizabeth Raudebaugh, who spent part of their days in Ohio. Mr. and Mrs.
Solomon Raudebaugh and their four children made the trip from Pennsylvania
with a five-horse team, there being no railroads in those days. They bought
one hundred and twenty-two acres in Plain township, the place having been
nearly all woods, as were most of the farms in Wayne county at that time.
They worked hard and soon had a good start in their new home.
After his marriage, John A. Raudebaugh lived on the home place, which
he had helped to clear in his boyhood days, for a period of sixteen years,
and he built every fence on the farm making numerous other substantial
improvements. He then moved to Ashland county, this state, where for one
year he lived on an eighty-acre farm belonging to his father. After that he
lived in Mercer county, Ohio, for two years, then returned to Chester
township, Wayne county, where he bought eighty acres. Later he sold it and
bought one hundred and twenty-three acres northeast of Overton in the same
township. There he farmed very successfully until 1903, when he retired,
moving to Overton and purchased a home here, where he spent his declining
years in the midst of plenty as a result of his former years of thrift and
industry. His death occurred there on January 11, 1910.
Mr. Raudebaugh was married in 1847 to Susan Soliday, who came to this
county from Pennsylvania with her parents, Jacob and Elizabeth (Rose)
Soliday. They entered land in Plain township which they cleared, living
there the remainder of their lives. To Mr. and Mrs. Raudebaugh the
following children were born, seven sons and four daughters; Mary
Elizabeth, Jacob Winfield, Henry (deceased), John Ford, Solomon Emery, Evert
Lincoln, Bertha, Charles, Elmer, Hattie and Effie. The parents of these
children were blessed by a harmonious wedded life of sixty-three years. No
person in this part of the county was held in higher esteem for his kindly
and generous nature than Mr. Raudebaugh, being honored especially by the
young people. He was a member of the United Brethren church, to which Mrs.
Raudebaugh belongs. Politically, Mr. Raudebaugh was a Republican: he at one
time very ably served as justice of the peace of Plain township, and he was
trustee for two terms in Union township, Mercer county, Ohio. He was always
ready to do his part in any public function that would assist in furthering the
general good.

William A. Solliday

A man who has stamped the impress of his strong individuality upon the
minds of the people of Clinton township, Wayne county, Ohio, in a manner as
to render him one of the conspicuous characters of this locality is William
A. Solliday, well known grocer of Shreve, in the development of which place
he has ever been an important factor. Faithfulness to duty and a strict
adherence to a fixed purpose, which always do more to advance a man's
interests than wealth or advantageous circumstances, have been dominating
factors in his life, which has been replete with honor and success worthily
attained. He is known to be a man of strictly honest business principles,
industrious, pleasant and agreeable.
Mr. Solliday was born in Plain township, this county, June 14, 1862,
the son of John and Susanna (Sparr) Solliday, the father a successful farmer
of that community. These parents were married in this county and have since
made their home here, four children having been born to them, named as
follows: Ida Mary, William A., Sidna G. and Lyman L.
William A. Solliday, of this review, was educated in the common schools
of Plain township and Smithville. He applied himself very closely to his
text books and when twenty-one years of age began teaching, having charge of
the Strauss school in Plain township in 1884 and in 1885 he taught at the
Maple Grove school in Plain township. But not taking as kindly to teaching
as he had anticipated, he abandoned the same although he had a very good
start in this line of endeavor, and, in 1886, following the tide of
emigration then setting in to the comparatively new state of Kansas, he
found himself at Kingman, where he engaged in farming and stock raising,
meeting with fair success. He returned to Wayne county, Ohio, and launched
in the grocery business at Shreve, soon enjoying a good patronage, and he
has continued in the same with increasing success, owning now one of the
neatest and most popular stores in this section of the county, always
carrying a fresh and carefully selected stock of goods, his place of business
being the mecca of farmers from a wide range of territory.
Mr. Solliday has found time to mingle in politics and has aided in
whatever way possible the advancement of his community. In 1907 he was
elected clerk of the local school board, of which he was one of the most
enthusiastic members. Politically he is a Democrat and in religious matters
holds membership with the local Presbyterian congregation.
On December 28, 1887, Mr. Solliday married Agnes J. Lebo, daughter of
Jonathan and Fiatta (Camp) Lebo, highly respected family of Homes county,
this state. Mr. and Mrs. Solliday are the parents of one daughter,Fern
Geraldine, born in Kingman, Kansas, April 28, 1900. She is now attending
school in Shreve, being in the third grade.
Fraternally, Mr. Solliday belongs to the Ancient Order United Woodmen in
Kansas and the Maccabees.
_____________________________________
Soliday, John Birth : 5 JAN 1821 Huntingdon Co., Pennsylvania . Another Soliday, Susanna Birth : 6 JUL 1825 Ohio Death : 13 JUN 1898 Greene Co., Indiana ..Who is the father of William Solliday? There is a Nathaniel Soliday inbetween.

From the BELLVILLE STAR

A quiet but pleasant wedding was celebrated at the residence of A. Raudebaugh in the direction of Pleasant Hill, Thursday, Aug. 31st., the contracting parties being a son Wm. Raudebaugh, and Miss Hallie McMonigal, Rev. A.J. Wagner officiating
http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohrichla/MAR-ANN-1882-BS.ht

Who is A. Raudebaugh? Misprint? You'll notice the Raudebaugh habit of double first names in their genealogy. Solomon very likey was Solomon-Adam. That is why William has two middle initials, probably William-Henry D. Raudebaugh. In some genealogies he is listed as Wiliam AD Raudebaugh. Kinda nuts. It gets worse:

1880 census lists Hallie McMonagle in Nathaniel Soliday's home as a daughter in Jefferson Oh. Adopted?

Hallie Rose McMonigal. Birth: 04 Sep 1865 - Plain, Wayne, Ohio, USA
died 1910 is found by googling.

Betty Hill says she was named Hallie Rice McMonigal and had a miserable life as Soliday family servant. She is listed as a Soliday daughter in the census of 1880. She didn't die in 1910. Betty knew Hallie and lived years with her.
Could Hallie Rose and Hallie Rice be two different people? Probably.

It is odd that Andrew McMonagle's daugter Mary married William C Rice. Early 1840's probably. Could Hallie Rice McMonigal living with Nathaniel Soliday be a descendant or even daughter of Mary McMonagle Rice?

How does Nathaniel relate to John Soliday? I did find a Susan Soliday a generation before the one that married John Raudebaugh could she be the grand mother of Nathaniel and mother of Susana 2?

Betty spent childhood summers at the Solliday farm where Gertrude Raudebagh had found employment.
I've been there twice in my youth. I remember a picture of 30 children/grand children. We had dinner where they had triple tables laid out end to end in two rooms.They had a 10 acre farm S. of Columbus somewhere, dairy, fruit and truck farm. In1968 I visited my Mom‘s cousin, a Soliday married to a man named Goode. They had a modest horse ranch in the vicinity of that former farm. - DH

This is quite a Gordian knot that even my timeline can not straighten. (The Gordian knot perplexed Alexander the Great until he simply cut it off.)
Don Hill
Oops. make that a ten sq. mi farm. That's what the boys told me and it took half a day to walk to the 2nd of 3 barns.
