I am searching for parents of both Elizabeth Hepler and William Davisson m. 17 May 1824 in Ironton, Lawrence County, Ohio. A Wm. Davisson acquired 80+ acres of Congress Lands in Lawrence County 13 Apr 1824, just one month prior to above marriage. Unsure if Elizabeth descended from the Hepler line that settled in western Virginia in the late 18th Century (Rockbridge, Botetourt or Alleghany Counties) or from the Heplers who relocated to western Pennsylvania from Upper Milford Twp., Lehigh County, PA. Other Heplers in Lawrence County during this period (1815-1830) include J. Hepler, Anna Hepler, Obediah Hepler and Christina. The Wm. Davisson farm adjoined properties purchased earlier (1806-14) by Amaziah and Andrew Davisson. Amaziah also noted in Scioto County before acquiring lands in Lawrence County.
Any assistance or suggestions with either of these lines will be greatly appreciated. We have a "field trip" scheduled to Lawrence & Scioto County in July, 2004!
