MERCER: Is anyone searching for or have information on a Mercer Family in the Canton area, ca 1827?
My great great grandmother according to a hand written note was born in Canton, Ohio, which I understand is in Stark County.
The census and her death certificate state only Ohio.The death certificate gives father: Joseph and no name was given for her mother: but part of the note has the surname of Nole and notation Anne-on-hill?It is possible her mother's name was Ann Nole/ Noel/Nowell.
ROWLAND: Elizabeth Rowland, my husband's great great grandmother was also said to have been born in Canton, Ohio and her family [surname Rowland] left to become pioneers in Iowa. His great great grandfather was born in 1845 so we assume her birth to be around that time.Her father's name possibly Wm J. Rowland.
