I have finally found my gr-grandmother Malissa Jane Callentine with her family in the 1850 Perry County OH Census. The name was spelled Callintim in the census index, Ancestry.com had Callurtine, and Perry County had Callentein.Here's the family:
William47b OH Mary32b PA Eliza J16b OH George W14b OH William H10b OH Mary10b OH Harriet8b OH Joseph7b OH Margaret3b OH Malissa J5b OH Adeline A1b OH
Do you know any of these people?
My great aunt said in her diary that Eliza married a Friley or Riley in Hocking Co OH.Mallisa married William Snider and lived in Hocking Co also.The rest of the family went west.Malissa's Uncle Abe supposedly died in Oregon.I did find an Abraham Galentin who m Elizabeth Carpenter 8 Jan 1829 in Logan, Hocking Co, OH that could be William's brother.But I can't trace any of the others.I suspect that most of the Callentines,Callendines, Gallentines, Gallatins, etc, etc, in OH are related.It is so difficult to track them with all the possible name variations.Can anyone help? Thanks, Linda
