QUERY: My great great grandfather Jobe Evans was born in Fairfield County, Ohio on December 15, 1830. He married my great great grandmother Lydia Jane Tipple in 1861 in Fairfield County. I am looking for any information at all regarding Jobe Evans. I am not having any luck tracing back past him , nor can I find where he was when he missed several censuses. There also seems to be a discrepancy about his age, on some things it was listed as 1841 but on his death certificate it is listed as 1830. I believe at one point he lived with Peter Seifert in Fairfield County. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
