I live close to Northumberland County, PA and have done a lot of research in that county. Dauphin is next to it, and many families from Upper Paxton Township, Dauphin Co., Northumberland Co., and Cumberland and Franklin County left this area by wagon train for OH in 1826...many of those families settled in Crawford Co., e.g. Wert, Nye, Miller, Ditty, Shoop.
I don't have much on Staley...in one line a Johann Adam Wert b. 23Feb1843 in Crawford, Wyandot County, OH...his parents b. in Crawford Co., OH, d. 09Jun1925; married to Susan Emily Staley on 20Dec1866 in Newton, Jasper Co., IA; she was born on 13Nov1846; d.03Apr1938.I never tracked her parents.Other Staley's that I have are more recent and may not be connected to the ones in OH.All I know is that Whitmore/Whitmeyer (various spellings) was in early Lancaster County, Lebanon, PAand Cumberland County.
