Pat, thank you for the suggestion.I will be in Salem to visit my mother living in a nursing home as soon as the weather reports between MD & OH appear to be snow/ice free.The PA mountain roads can be nasty.I have plans to visit the OH Room at the library -- had not thought that New Albany might be in the Farm Directories.
I see you are researching SPATH.My gg grandfather's [Samuel HENDRICKS (1825-1864)] 4th child, Elmira/Almira/Elinor HENDRICKS m. Harvey BLOOM 1881.Their dau. Ada/Maud m. ? SPAETH/SPAITH in Stark Co. OH. ca 1900-1910.They had a son Karl SPAETH (1903-1969).I have no given name or vitals for Karl's father.Karl & mother Ada/Maud died in Wayne Co. MI.Do you have ? , Karl's father, in your database?See pages 78-79 with pictures in my Jacob HENDRICKS Genealogy pub. compiled in 1998 on the shelf at the Ohio Room in Salem.
Thanks again for your suggestion re: New Albany.Barbara
