I am not a member of the France family, but I am hoping that one of the Muskingum County France family's descendants is present on this board.
I am considering buying an old farmhouse on Thompson Run Rd., Newton Township, Muskingum County, (Zanesville) Ohio.I found out that the owner of the farm is Emmett France.I'm just curious as to his story, how long he farmed, his family, etc. I am a history buff, and would love to know more!We saw the farmhouse today, and it is gorgeous (although needs work).Someone in the household was an avid canner, as there are still cans and jars in the house.
Thank you for any information, feel free to email me off board if this is not an appropriate post.This is my first time, and I'm becoming a genealogy buff, so I appreciate any tidbits of history anyone can offer!(o:
