I am looking for more information on my 3rd great grand uncle's, John and James. They moved to Madison Co. from Meigs Co., OH. between 1830 and 1840. Pioneer History of Meigs County, page 55. "Adah Ogden, daughter of Alvin Ogden and wife, was born March 7th, 1799, and was married to John Conner. They moved to Indiana. To them were born six children."
I have found John and James on the 1840 U.S. Census, Indiana, Madison, Unknown, page 216. They are living very close to one another. I have found John on the 1850 U.S. Census. Two children missing... probably married?James Conne and family was not found.
1850, Indiana, Madison, Richland, page 61. John Conner, 57, Pennsylvania Adah, 51, Ohio Eliza, 22, Ohio Levi, 18, Ohio Neal, 18, Ohio Nancy, 13?, Indiana *Note: Samuel and Alain Conner, both married, are living very close and probable some relation.
1840 U.S. Census, Indiana, Madison, Unknown, page 216. John is listed very close by. James Conner 1-male 5-10 1-male 40-50 1-female under 5 2-female 5-10 1-female 10-15 1-female 30-40
I have also found record of John and Adah's death and burial at Richland Twp., Madison Co., Indiana, Nelson Cemetery. Other relations possibly burried here too.
I still have more to discover, but here is what I am trying to answer.... What happened to James Conner and family? The Ohio probate record for the Conner Boy's FATHER (James) states that James (Jr.) died in Indiana. Probate took place in 1858 OH, Meigs Co. I can't seem to find anything on James after 1840 and I am in hope that somebody else might have a clue.
