I have James Froman married Ruth Gerard or (Jarret) 22 June 1830 in Switzerland County, Indiana.I have Ruth Dickerson married David Gerard in Switzerland County, Indiana, 12 October 1824I have a David Gerard dying October 1843 in Warren County, Ohio, so I'm assuming a divorce.
So this is my theory, Ruth Dickerson, daughter of Giffen Dickerson married David Gerard, then married James Froman, and then named her first born son Griffen Dickerson Froman.
I know that Paul and Keziah Froman had a son James Froman.But I don't have other than a circumstantial connection that James Froman of Crawford County, Indiana, from Switzerland County, is the same James Froman of Switzerland County, son of Paul and Keziah Froman.
Also Ruth Froman died about 27 December 1884.This is from an entry in the New Albany Ledger Newspaper, date above, page 4 column 5.
So.....I am looking (for at least 10 years now) for more substantation than James Froman of Crawford County, IN is the son of Paul and Keziah Froman of Switzerland County, IN.
Would love to hear more about this family.Please post or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
