died before 1850 but he her children can be found in the 1850 census in Baltimore, Liberty
Twp., page 193, with his second wife and her first child, Henry Clay ALLSPAUGH. J.H.
Allspaugh was born 25 Feb 1815 in Lancaster, Fairfield County, so I suspect that his first
wife was from there, or they married there. But I cannot find any reference to her, so I
do not know her name. I believe their first child, Emily, was born in Baltimore, Fairfield
Co., OH on 26 Feb 1839. She married Edward F. EWING in Butler Twp., Knox Co., in 1862 and
later moved to Kansas. About 1840 they had twin boys, Samuel and Harrison ALLSPAUGH, then
the first wife died. J.H. married his second wife, Mary Jane REEDER, in 1849 in Delaware
County, her birth place. He's buried in Mound View Cemetery in Mt. Vernon, Knox County,
OH, with Mary Jane. Can anyone find a lady whose married name was ALLSPAUGH (that spelling
is uncommon but is almost certainly correct), born about 1815-1820, who died between 1840
and 1848? She is probably buried alone or with her parents. I would really appreciate a
clue. I am also interested in discovering the parents of J.H. ALLSPAUGH. They may have

WEBB, MOREHART, LAWRENCE - Thomas Webb born April, 1849 in Pickaway
County, married Anna Elizabeth Morehart November, 1872, and resided in Greenfield
Township, Fairfield County. Thomas Webb's parents were Matthias Webb (born in Virginia in
1825 ?) and Elizabeth Lawrence (born in Pennsylvania in 1827 ?). Matthias and Elizabeth
were in Pickaway County on the 1850 census with son Thomas and on the 1860 census with
sons Thomas and Francis and daughters Eliza and Mary. After the 1860 census Matthias and
Elizabeth and their children disappear from the records until Thomas shows up in Fairfield
County in 1872. Does anyone know what happened to Matthias and Elizabeth and the other
three children - Eliza, Francis, and Mary, and whether there were any children born to the
couple after 1860?
Looking for information on the parents of John Lafayette WILSON.
Born 1827, near Lancaster. Was orphaned by either his father, or both parents by age 10.
Supposedly raised by his mother's family. Was a school teacher in the public schools by
age 16. Married in Perry County around 1850 and moved to Bluffton, Indiana. Served in the
Civil War, became a lawyer, became a Judge. Was living when he died in Morrow, Warren
County, Ohio. Supposedly related to John White GEARY through his mother. She could be Anna
Barbara GEARY WILSON, stated in the will of Gideion GEARY around 1832. Copy I have is VERY
HARD TO READ. Who was his father? I suspect John WILSON. But I don't know much else.
I've found a few other lines of WILSONs in Fairfield county. Is he related to them?

Raker (Born 1810 in PA) came to Fairfield County, Ohio with his parents Martin and Sarah
RAKER after 1815. They left FF in the 1830's and settled in Fulton County Ohio. John Raker
married around 1830 to a woman named Sarah Bixler. Their first child Daniel was born in
1832. I presume they married in FF Ohio, but haven't been able to confirm it. Also, Ii
