I posted the following on the Wesco Forum, but that forum is not used much, so I am repeating it here.
I have been doing a little research on my Wesco line, beginning with my great-grandmother Cora Bell Wesco.Herfather was Reuben Wesco, who had moved to Poweshiek County, Iowa.However, he was born 1 Mar 1838 in Preble County, Ohio.It appears that his father, Jonathon Wesco, died in Aug 1839.Jonathon was married to Catherine Wolf on 23 Jul 1837.Court records in 1841 show that Catharine is his widow and seven children are listed:Francis, Sarah Ann, Elizabeth, Jacob, Reuben, Samuel and Theodore.I am not sure which of the children are Chatharine's, as it appears that Jonathon had been married previously.When final division of the land is made in 1849, Catharine is not given a share, nor is Theodore.Theodore had been granted a guardian in 1842 when he was 4 years old, so perhaps that family raised him as their own.In 1841 all the children were minors, but by 1849, the two oldest were no longer minors.
1850 census shows Reuben (16) and Samuel (14) living with a Henry Wesco, age 66.I am inclined to believe that Henry is Jonathon's father.
I think Henry links us back to the PA Wesco family.It may be that Henry (or perhaps his name is John Henry) was the son of Matthais, which takes us on back to Francious Vesqueau (also known as Francis Wesco) and then to Jean Philip Vesqueau.
I am currently trying to get better info about Henry to make sure this link is correct.
