1808 in Fairfield County, Ohio is the earliest known year and location that I have for my ancestors, George, Samuel, and Jacob Coon. In various records the name has been spelled Koontz, Koon, Cone, etc. I have looked for years for some clue to help me figure out where they might have come from before arriving in Ohio - to no avail.

I have turned to genetic research to try to help me link to other lines of Coon, Coonce, Kuhn, Koontz, Coontz, Koon, Koons, Kuntz, etc., who might have been in the area at the same time. People usually moved in groups at that time and sometimes the extended family went along also. I suspect that Isaac Koontz may have been related since my Coon line's name was spelled Koontz in the 1820 census.

He was born in Gemany (most likely the Palatine) and arrived in Philidelphia circa 1730. He came to Fairfield County in about 1800 or 1803 from Rockingham County, Virginia. Some sons took name of Bope and at least one other, the name of Pope. Records in Virginia indicate a surname of perhaps PUP, PUPP or PAUPE.

I am searching for information on my GGGrandfather, Valentine Kastner. I know very little and what I do know is hearsay from a high school paper my sister wrote on family history. The information was given to her by my deceased mother and this man would have been her Grandfather that she never knew. The only reason I am searching in Fairfield Co. is because I do know that a Valentine Kaster of France was granted naturalization in Fairfield Co. in 1842. I traveled to your courthouse to get a copy of this paperwork. It has led me nowhere though. My mother seemed to think that this man had lived in Columbus, Oh and then moved to Springfield OH but I can find no record of him in Clark Co. He was purportedly in the newspaper business, possibly owning a small newspaper. He was a Lutheran and came to US from the Alsace-Lorraine area of France/Germany. He had two sons that I am aware of and they were born here in US. One possibly in Columbus, OH in 1844 (Henry Valentine Kastner). He shows up in Dayton, Oh after the Civil War. I know his unit, when/where he entered military etc. His brother, Charles Emil Kastner b. 1848 where? d. 1917 in Dayton, OH. was my GGrandfather. It was my mother's remembrance that one of the son's of Valentine buried him in Springfield, Oh. I could not find him and am wondering if my mother got Springfield, Oh and Lancaster, OH mixed up. So if the Valentine Kastner that was naturalized in Fairfield Co. in 1842 is my relative maybe he is buried in the area? possibly a Lutheran cemetery?

Also on the same census there is a John Bradley and he is on the same page as Christina Bowman,so I am wondering if he is the father of Sarah Bradley Bowman. I understand there may be descendents of Peter Bowman's 14 children still living in Ohio so I would be interested in hearing from anyone doing research on his family or who share him as an ancestor.

CRONE OR CROWE OR WORK? Martha and Nancy were sisters(?). Some have their maiden name as Crone but I have it as Crowe. Martha Crowe the wife of David and grandmother of Permelia Work was b about 1776 in Pa. I believe her and David were married there too. Because acc to the bio of Wesley Work, David brought his family to Oh. and their son Joseph was b there. She d 10 Jan 1853 and is buried in Zion Church Cem Hocking Twp. Fairfield Co. Oh. She is shown ont he 1850 Census living with her son Joseph in Hocking Twp. FF Co. Oh . Nancy Crowe was the wife of David's brother Joseph. Her birthplace is Maryland abt 1778 ( I need to ask her about the source on that.) She died on or after 22 Nov 1822.(The date of birth of her lastchild). Joseph might have married his cousin Nancy Work. So Martha and Nancy are not sisters? Please help me prove the two women's connection with these 2 brothers! Someone go to that cemetary and check the name on that tombstone to verify Martha's last name.

How can I obtain a list of persons buried at the Fletcher Chapel Cemetery in Liberty Township, Fairfield Co, OH? I recently received an email telling me there is an Idaho Eddington buried there and other family members...this could be the younger brother of my g.m. Catherine H. Edington and her mother and father and/or her grandparents as well.
Idaho Eddington was born in May, 1887 and died prior to 1900. His father was Jacob Edington, born in 1857 and died between 1883 and 1900. His mother was Mary A. Hamilton (Edington) born abt. 1857 and died between 1883 and 1900. His paternal gf was Isaac Edington, born abt. 1835 in Licking Co, Oh and died between 1880 and 1900 in Walnut Township, Fairfield Co., OH. His paternal gm was Elizabeth Edington, born Nov. 1837 (Perry Co.?) OH, died after 1910 in Walnut Township, Fairfield Co, OH. Isaac & Elizabeth also had a daughter, Samantha Edington b. about 1859 (she married a Murphy in Walnut Township, Fairfield Co) she died abt. 1880-1900. Perhaps the entire family attended the Fletcher Chapel church, and that is why they would be buried there? Is there a list of burials that can be looked at for this family? (Especially, Idaho, Mary Ann, and Jacob Eddington?) Exactly when and why this family died is a mystery to their descendants...we'd like to know if there was a tragic accident, or maybe an epidemic of some type that "wiped them out".

Were there annual tax records of any type kept in Fairfield Co. that would list the persons residing in a residence at any given year?

I am particularly interested in Walnut Township, the community of Lakeside for the time period of 1880 through 1899 and trying to varify if Jacob and Mary Edington lived in a home seperate from that of Jacob's parents, Isaac and Elizabeth Edington.

Frank Fisher, born about 1852 in Ohio, was located in Illinois in 1870. Subesquently moved to Nebraska. Upon his passing,he referenced a brother, residing in Illinois.
