Thanks for your response. My information shows that my g-grandfather, Fredrick, was born in Osage Cty in 1895. He married Emma E. Starr in Bedford Twp on Oct 21, 1909. His father is Ruben and mother is Mary Casletta. Not sure where they're from but I was previously told Ruben was from South Carolina. But there are many Ards from the Carolinas and the rest of Dixie!
