Valerie, I can't even begin to thank you for replying to my message. I have been looking for you for so long.John and Magdalena BAIR were my 2g gp's.I am descended thru their son Jacob.The BAIR Family has been my brickwall....forever!!!
You're timing couldn't have been better.I will be in Stark Co, OH the end of April, and am hoping to spend at least one day each in the Mahoning and CB Co courthouses.
I originally began tracing the KINDIG's as a way to find the parentage of John BAIR. Still can't prove anything. The fact that Magdalena's sister-in-law Rachel ends up living with Mary BEAR; I was hoping was more than a coincidence.
I have Magdalena's siblings as: Susanna, Martin, John, Henry and Eliz.
I have their parents as Henry KINDIG and Elizabeth MEYER.
I'm just beginning to piece together the documentation onHenry KINDIG, ie:wills, tax records etc. Any help with the KINDIG's ancestry and locations of records would be a great time saver as this trip to OHIO is a last minute thing. It didn't give me much time to research and prepare.
Since I couldn't get anywhere with John BAIR's ancestry I've spent my time researching his children and grandchildren.I'll get a compilation together for you.
Again, thank you for the response. Kathleen Bair firstname.lastname@example.org
