+3 ii. Aaron VANNATTA Sr. (born BET 1783/1784).

3. Aaron VANNATTA Sr.2 (Unknown-1) died on 5 Mar 1859 in Jasper County? IL. 3 He was born BET 1783/1784 in Washington Township, Warren County, NJ?. 3 Per the 1887 Coles County, IL history book, Aaron and Nancy Vannatta were of Fairfield (probably Fairfield County), Ohio and then emigrated to the Territory of Illinois in 1816 and settled in Lawrence County (southeastern Illinois).
From Fairfield County, OH records: April, 1817---At an election held in the township of Reading, Fairfield County, Ohio, the following township officers were elected on the first Monday of April 1817: Overseers of the Poor, John Mains & Aaron Vanatta.
Per the Lawrence County, IL 1883 History, Peter Pargin was there in 1818 (north of the state road and west of the Embarrass river), followed by Aaron Vanatta in 1820 and he "improved the northwest quarter of the northwest quarter of section 10..." (Note that Lawrence County was formed from Crawford County in January, 1821, so this was really still officially Crawford County at the time.)
Aaron was listed on p. 43 of the 1820 Crawford County, IL census (no township listed) with the following data: Males: 0<9=3 (Aaron & ??); 10<15=1 (Samuel); 18<25=1 (unknown); & 26-44=2 (Aaron & ?); Females: 0<9=1; 10<15=1; & 26<44=1 (probably wife, Nancy). Four people were engaged in agriculture; probably the older males. Elijah Gibbs
(father-in-law of Aaron's son Samuel, who married Elijah's daughter, Lucy) was listed just two houses prior to Aaron.

Aaron Vanatta was a witness to the will of John Pargeon/Pargin on 20 August, 1821 in Lawrence County, IL.
Aaron was living next door to his son Samuel (separated only by John Swick who was later related by marriage to Beems) in the 1840 census. Aaron's family is listed in the 1840 Jasper County, IL census, p. 284, L.W. Jorden Twp., as follows: Males: 10<15=1; 15<20=1; 20<30=1; and 50<60=1 (Aaron); Females: 50<60=1.

Aaron was listed in the 1850 Jasper County, IL census as HH #529, Vanattacen, Aaron, 66, farmer, NJ; Nancy, 65, OH; and Stephen, 21, IL. They were living next door to Isaac Vanatta, 26, farmer, IL.
He was married to Nancy MURPHY on 19 Nov 1807 in Fairfield County, OH. 1 They were married by William Trimble, Justice of the Peace. Nancy MURPHY1 was born about 4 Mar 1782 in NJ?. 3 The 1850 census shows she
was born in Ohio, but this is doubtful, since it wasn't even a territory yet. She died on 6 Oct 1865 in Jasper County? IL.3 Her first name initially came from the 1887 Coles County, IL history book.

The following Murphy men were living in Pleasant Township of Fairfield County, OH in 1806:

I am looking for Nicholas Rodgers/Rogers who married Drusilla Lynch 3 Oct 1819 in Fairfield Co, Ohio. Drusilla was the dau. of Jonathan Lynch and Ruth Springer of Fairfield Co. and was born about 1802. I have very little info on Nicholas Rodgers/Rogers. He has two deeds in Fairfield Co.;, dated 1831 and 1832, both in Pleasantville. Then we have the marriage date of  the parents and a list of the children, mostly girls. These were Sarah b. about 1820 Catherine Rogers b. about 1822 (she married a Richter or Righter) Elizabeth Rogers b. about 1824 (she married Henry Stouder and had dau. Caroline Stouder) Abigail Rogers b. about 1828 (in 1850 Fairfield Co. census is living w. sister, the Henry Stouder family) Margaret Rogers b. about 1831 and married a Wilson A son named either Herbert or Robert Rogers b. about 1840 Caroline Rogers born about 1843.

Frizzell, William born March 21,1851 in North Rushville, father, Jason Frizzell mother Jane Smith. Does he sound familiar to anyone? I do know he moved to Fostoria and became a plumber.

Would like to find parents of Elizabeth Ross Clemens. She married my G.G. Grandfather James Purvis in Cardington OH March 3 1843.  They moved to Rushcreek Township in 1850.She is related to Samuel L.

Grandfather, his grandson James Frank Purvis,my grandfather.

I am gathering information on John Coon/Coons/Cuntz/Koontz who arrived in Ohio in about 1799 in the Ross/Pickaway/Fairfield County area. (The boundaries changed frequently as new counties were formed and re-formed). I am searching for a link between John and my GGGGrandfather, George Washington Coon (1786, PA) George had at least two brothers, Samuel and Jacob, and possibly a third, Isaac. They are in many records in the Fairfield County area
from 1808 to about 1830. John is believed to have settled with his family in the Clearcreek Twp, Pickaway County area. Land records show that in 1813, two sons, George and Samuel bought land in Hocking Twp, Fairfield County. The 1820 census shows George and his family, Samuel and his family, and a Hannah and her family in Hocking Twp. I am assuming that John died prior to 1813 and that Hanna was Johns wife. Two members of her household are adult males and I am guessing that these are Jacob and Isaac. In 1830 there is no Hanna listed but both George and Samuel are still there and Jacob is the head of his own household.
I have a couple of different unpublished histories that tell of John Coons coming from Old Redstone Fort (Uniontown) Fayette Co., Pennsylvania with the Moore, Newhouse and Dillsaver families in 1799 or 1800. John Coon is said to be the brother-in-law of Henry Moore. The records also state that John had been in Fayette County for about 10 years and had come from somewhere on the Schuylkill River about eight miles west of Philadelphia prior to moving west.
John is said to have been a bricklayer or mason and may have been allied with the Dillsavers in
business since they also had at least one bricklayer that was a contemporary of John and a member of the family later owned a brickyard.
The records show almost all possible variations of Coon but I am reasonably sure the pronounciation, at least, was "Koontz"
