Looking for a family tree for Preston (Parton) Aleshire born in Meigs Co. Ohio, parents born in VA. He is married to Christine Aleshire they have several children.
Head-Preston Aleshire born January 1827 (name looks to be spelled Pastor or Parton in the 1900 census). However he's listed as a farmer.
Wife-Christine Aleshire January 1824 born PA, Dad born Ire, Mom born PA
Children -Adaline born abt 1854
-Esther born abt 1859
---grandson (Esther's son father unknown) Horace O/Horestus born Sept 1880
-William Clark born 1860
-Lucy J. born abt 1863
My understanding is that he is the son of Conrad Aleshire from Shenandoah Valley, VA. He had one sister named Anna.
I know his grandson Horace O. Aleshire grew up and started his own family. Between 1910 and 1920 they moved from Meigs Co. OH to Delaware Co. OH.
Head- Horace O Aleshire Wife- Eloda Zelda (Spencer) Aleshire born abt 1880, Married abt 1903
Children -Ralph S. abt 1904 -Harley E. abt 1907 -Edith Leola abt 1917 (My great grandmother).
Guess I'm looking for more info on Conrad (if that really was his father). Also who is Horace's father. If any of the members were in a war and were pastors (Family story is one of the members was a pastor with a gun shot wound and he would put pencils and stuff in the head wound. Apparently he took a walk before writing his sermon and never came back it's believed he drowned in a body of water.)
