I am seeking information on the family of Charles G. and Mary Ann NEAR WILSON. Charles was born 25 April 1853 in Allen Co, Ohio, to Eli and Sarah MILLER WILSON. Charles spent his you in Jennings Twp, Van Wert Co, Ohio, and probably married Mary Ann NEAR at that place about 1875. Mary Ann was the daughter of David and Ann NEAR. By the 1880 census, Charles and Mary Ann are enumerated in Dublin Twp, Mercer Co, Ohio. Charles and Mary Ann raised there family in Mercer Co., and remained there until Charles died in 1932 and Mary Ann in 1948. Both are buried in Riverside Cemetery at Rockford.

CLARK-CUMMINS, COLLINS, HASTINGS, MCDANIEL posted by Margaret Hastings Hendrix on Wednesday, November 1, 2000

I am wondering what information I might find from the probate for Nancy (Sarah Ann?) (unknown maiden name) COLLINS, widow of Solomon. Per her tombstone in Pisgah Cem. south edge of Ft. Recovery, she was b. 1798, d. 1873. She was known to have driven a horse and buggy alone from Ft. Recovery to Cincinnati, so she must have been a very independent woman. (Farm was in Gibson Tp., daughters married HASTINGS, MCDANIEL, CLARK-CUMMINS.) If there are any desc. who see this, I would love to be contacted.

They had seven children: Bro,Earl,Myrtle,Leota, Emery,Mary,and Cora. They also were related to the RALSTON family. I am especially interested in information about Jonathon Sivey and where he is buried. I don't think he was buried in any of the cemeteries but beside a bridge in a field.

Trying to find marriage date for Theodore John HUELSMAN who married Anna BOWELS in Mercer County. Their first child, Anna Marie HUELSMAN (my grandmother) was born 2-15-1882, so I assume their marriage was in 1880 or 1881. Interesting in hearing from any Huelsman's still in the Mercer County area.
