I'm looking for information on the John Knowlton Family who lived in Monroe County Ohio. Pheobe Knowlton, daughter of John Knowlton (b. 1803, d. 1883) and Elisabeth Luckey(b. 1805, d. 1892), is my gg-grandmother. My line is as follows: John & Elisabeth(Luckey) Knowlton Pheobe (Knowlton) Edington b. 1834, (m. Jonathon Edington) John Wil Edington b. 1853, (m. Rachel Jones) Alta Arizona (Edington)Highman b. 1888, (m. Delbert Highman)
I understand there may be a Knowlton/Edington cemetery in Monroe County. If so, is there a listing, with dates, of who is buried there? Would anyone be willing to take tombstone pictures? I also understand there was a courthouse fire which destroyed many records from this time period. Would records of births, marriages, deaths be availble at any other site i.e., churches, state of Ohio, etc? This Knowlton family are decendants of Robert Knowlton who served in the Revolutionary War. I am trying to document my relatives for the purpose of membership in the DAR. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to share my Knowlton/Edington information with those who are interested and perhaps even discover some new cousins.
