Jacob France was the son of John FRANCE b.1768 PA m. Mary ??? b.1785 MD.Jacob was b.ca 1810 in VA.The only other children of John and Mary I can identify are Henry b.ca 1823 in VA and Sarah b.ca 1826 in VA.Other researchers have attached other children but with no proofs. Henry and Sarah both show on the 1850 Muskingum Co, OH census living with John and Mary.John died between 1850 and 1860 in Muskingum Co, OH.Mary was living with Jacob and Phebe in the 1860 census and was gone by the 1870 census.
Jacob FRANCE m. Phebe DILTZ nee SLACK in 1833 in Muskingum Co, OH.According to Henry S. FRANCE b. 1838 son of Jacob and Phebe, Jacob lived for a short time in Logan Co, OH.The 1830 census shows a Jacob FRANTZ in Logan Co, with a wife and children.Unless the wife and children of Jacob FRANTZ died, e is probably not Jacob FRANCE of Muskingum Co, OH.
Jacob and Phebe had the following children: John b. 1833 m. STONEBURNER Mary b. 1836 m. BASH Henry S. b.1838 m. DUGAN Lorenzo D. b.1846 m. ANDERSON George W. b.1847 m. CALLAHAN Samuel b. unk died young Rachel b. unk died young William b. unk died young
John, Henry, and Lorenzo moved to Vermilion Co, IL.Mary died after having 6 children with her husband (bef 1880).George W. was known as Washington and never left Muskingum Co, OH.
I cannot tie your George to this family. Nothing in the census records show any relation between John, Jacob, and your George FRANCE.
Were they related?Possibly.How were they related?That is anyone's guess.I don't think George was a child of John and Mary because he would have shown up on the 1840 census record.There are 2 sons on the 1840 record, 1 is 20-30 yrs of age and the other is 10-15 yrs of age.The 10-15 yrs of age son is probably Henry although it could be your George BUT if it is your George, where is Henry in the 1840 census since he is still there in the 1850 census.The 1840 census also shows 2 daughters 15-20 and two daughters 20-30.I have no information on these daughters. I can only assume that Sarah, age 24 in the 1850 census is one of the younger daughters.
