QUERY: Searching for the marriage record of JOHN COMPTON to LUCINDA UNKNOWN and the death record of LUCINDA (UNKNOWN) COMPTON. I am guessing JOHN COMPTON was born around 1780, married about 1800-1805. Had children named Sarah, John, Job, Samuel. John and children moved to Indiana by 1830, but not Lucinda. Possibly died in Fairfield Co. Thanks so much, Catherine Shaughnessy, Michigan

QUERY: The surname Thinnes, Thinis, or even occasionally Tennis bears a close resemblance to the Thimmes family name, commonly found in and around Lancaster, but is a separate family. Bible records, and some at St Mary\'s, support the fact that Joseph Thinis and his wife Katherine died near Sugar Grove in 1845 and 1844 respectively, but we have been unable to locate their stones. Perhaps someone who knows the Thimmes history well would know if any of those records possibly these first names and death dates, making it suspicious that the surnames were recorded incorrectly, and might actually be Thinnes. As these dates correspond possibly to records lost from Elmwood or the earlier pioneer cemetery that formerly sat beneath today\'s firehouse in Lancaster, any expertise there much appreciated as well.

QUERY: I'm trying to find out more info on Phillip and Catherine MOSIER who are buried in Greenfield cemetery.There's a query about his son Henry and two wives both named Catherine(DAVIS who's my relative and then SWAB) archived in section 5. I'd like to know when Phillip was born and where. When did he die? He was born in Virginia but any idea what town? I've seen your excellent listing of common Va. and WV. counties that most early residents of Fairfield county originally came from. Henry was born in Va in 1810 but came to Lancaster supposedly in 1830 and married Catherine Davis there in 1835 before going on to Hancock county in 1842. I'd like to know about the DAVIS family history as well.I believe that Phillip may have arrived in Fairfield earlier than 1830. I did come to Lancaster once and did research suggesting that Phillip may have had an older son and therefore Henry would not have inherited the land as was the custom then, I'd also like to know where in Fairfield county Philip's land was,Greenfield?. I'd also like to know about Catherine(Phillip's wife) and any other children she had besides Henry. My name is Mark Mosier and Phillip and Catherine are my GGGG grandparents.6600 Woodland Place Oakland Ca. 94611-510-891-1019.Thank you, your website is great!

QUERY: Noah Heft married an Effie Stoneburner in Fairfield County. However all the family records list her maiden name as Fisher (daughter of David Fisher) They were only 20 when they got married so I wonder if it is a second husband for her. But given that they are so young I question it. They married around 1860. I would like to see the census for 1840 for David Fisher to see if she is listed there. Sincerely, Jan Morey
