I am related to the other Colstons in Ross county that came from MD in 1804-05. IN MD the name was colson but when they came to Ohio the name was changed to Colston/Colsten depending on how that person wanted to spell it. There were cousin from MD who were JOhn Colson so it could be the same family do you know his spouse? that could help I have most of the marriage records from MD for the Colson's/Colston's. Also a tid bit of info here I have most of the deeds from Maryland that mention colstons and they do contain tons of information. Some of my stuff is in storage but I will soon be getting it out.
