QUERY: I am searching for information regarding the family of Benjamin Stover, who came from Hardy County Virginia around 1810. I descend from his son, G.W. Stover & Elizabeth Green. I've hit a brick wall searching for siblings of George. He was born in August of 1826 in Fairfield County. Married Eve Finkbone in 1850. She died a year later & he sold the land in Liberty Twp. back to her family and moved to Licking Co. where he married Elizabeth Green, dtr. of Benjamin and Mary Malone Green. Mary died after Elizabeth was born and he married Barbary Houser. George then, in 1856, moved to Berlin Twp., Delaware County. He was instrumental in starting Peachblow U.B. Church, which is still open today. I grew up in that area and was a member of that church, as was every generation of my mother's family up until the 1990's. The Delaware County Genealogical Society is honoring that church with a program in June. A cousin and I have a wealth of information regarding the family and church history in Delaware County and a fair amount in Licking family where the lived in Etna Twp. and attended the Houser Chapel . That church became the Trinity U.B. Church. According to G.W.'s obit and info in the Baskin's History, he had four brothers and possibly a sister. Baskin's says he was the youngest.

SURNAME: CRAWFORD, CRAFORD
EMAIL: kc7wdq@cox.net
QUERY: Corrected admission The CRAWFORD childrens names are: William 1822, Sarah 1826, George 1829, Joshua 1831, Mary 1833, Amos 1835, twins Rebecca and Isaac C. 1837, Nancy O. 1840, and Robert M[onroe] 1842. William is the only one that i can confirm that was born in Fairfield Co. OH tho the rest are stated to be from OH in almost all Censuses... The Father of the family is supposedly born in MD and the Mother born in Penn. The only CRAWFORD's i can find in the 1820, 1830, 1840, cencuses are in Walnut, Berne, and Violet. I don't know if the family was raised in Fairfield county or if their father was passing thru. Being a farmer i'd think he'd stick around for a few years. I'm still tracking down all the kids in this family and the only ones i've had luck with are William and Robert[my ggrandfather]. If some kind soul would do some lookups for me, I would really appreciate it. You would be on my blessings list forever. Thank you Mary 4/11/2006

SURNAME: HOUSMAN
EMAIL: esieb1987@aol.com
QUERY: I am searching for information about Henry Housman. Page 269 of the 1830 census for Violet Township, Fairfield County, lists Henry and accounts for family members. The 1840 census shows his wife Katherine Housman and her children but not Henry. Records indicate that his estate was being settled in 1841 by his wife Katrherine Housman. I am trying to determine his death information and place of burial. Henry and Katherine had children born as late as 1836, so I would assume that Henry died between 1836 and 1841. I am prepared to offer a special thanks for Henry and Katherines death and burial data. Thanks for any help you can give. Ron. 4-6-2006

SURNAME: SMITH
E_MAIL:  graberschr@aol.com
QUERY: Hardy and Adeline Smith are buried in New Salem Methodist Cemetery. From the picture submitted to Find A Grave by John Bailey it is apparent the 4 sided pillar stone was toppled. Adeline's middle initial was hidden in the dirt on the picture and was not given in the transcription. If anyone goes out to the cemetery will you please check the middle initial for me? The stone is in the old section Row 23 (Joel) 13th stone from the tree line. Adeline was the sister of my ancestor. If any one knows of the Smith side of the family I am somewhat interested. So far as I know, Hardy and Adeline did not have children. I understand Hardy had a niece, Mary Smith, who was in charge of the estates. This is 1880s. If anyone knows John Bailey please tell him thank you from me for submitting the entry. If people are buried in the old section would that mean they were members of the church? Does the church have good records from the 1880s and before? 3-30-2006
