I have been trying to find information about my Great Grandmother's family and keep hitting brick walls.I finally found a listing for a family that I believe may be hers.It was in the 1880 Federal Census for Mt. Blanchard, OH, Hancock County.This is the information I got from the census page:
H. H. HARPER, b. about 1841 in OH, occupation:Minister Elizabeth HARPER, wife, b. about 1842 in VA Etta L. HARPER, dau, b. about 1861 in OH M. H. HARPER, son, b. about 1863 in OH Elihu H. HARPER, son, b. about 1865 in OH Harlow HARPER, son, b. about 1872 in OH Churby (?) H. HARPER, son, b. about 1876 in OH Clarra M. HARPER, dau, b. about 1879 in OH
I believe Etta L. Harper may have been my maternal grandmother's mother.The age is right and my great grandmother's name was Etta Lula Harper, called "Hettie".She married James Franklin Friesland in 1884 and lived in Ashe County, North Carolina.
If anyone has any information on this family, please contact me.Thank you SO much!
