My "brick wall" is my ggg-grandfather Nathan Yocum (spelled 100 different ways) born about 1783 in PA, married a Mary Waters in Irville in 1812 - I can't find anything at all about her family.She must have died before 1830, because in the 1830 census, Nathan had a younger wife andmore children.I believe he had about seven children.He owned land in Hopewell Township according to a deed dated 1828 and another one dated 1834?
He was in the 1810,1820, 1830, and 1840 Muskingum County censuses and then I found him in Darke County in 1850 married to a woman named Francis who was a lot younger than him with two more sons and a daughter born after 1830.
I don't know the names of the children born in Muskingum County except for my gg-grandfather Peter Yocum b. 1821-22, and possible John who was listed with Nathan in the 1850 census, born about 1825 (I've always thought maybe Mary Waters Yocum died giving birth to him????).I have NO idea who Peter's mother was (Mary or Francis or ??)I haven't been able to find any other marriage records for Nathan Yocum other than the one to Mary Waters.
