I don't know about the older Jacob but for the son Jacob (brother to John ) he was b. July 02, 1832 OH d. November 09, 1911 Vinton, Gallia Co, OH.Co A 27th OVI. He was buried in Gallia Co...probably McGhee Cemetery but I don't know.Would love to have a copy of his TS picture for the collection of 27th OVI's that I have.
Now...Missouri and her 2 husbands and dates of marriage don't quite jive with what you are saying....so where are my dates off.
Missouri Dodrill b. May 16, 1850 (TS at Franklin Cem?) d. Bet. 1881 - 1883???No Death date on TS.Her first husband was Henry (Clay) Gheer 1842-1912 who is buried at Franklin Cemetery.They were married 10/11/1867.Now since her husband did not die until 1912 and I know the marriage date is right from them.She HAD to have married after 1912 or been divorced?So when did Missouri Die?I have a James (not sure if it's D) Oiler b. 12/13/1828 d. 6/24/1907 from TS???? in Franklin Cemetery...so 2nd husband dies before the first husband....so there has to be a divorce in here somewhere?I think Missouri and James were married in 1887 but Henry is still alive until 1912.
This James 1828-1907 was first married to Eva Shively Bard (so was she married before?Shively a maiden name? and Bard her married name?)Eva's TS states her DOD is March 05, 1887 and is at Franklin with age of 72y5m2d.So to calculate her birth it would be October 03, 1814...so she was older than James.I have their marriage tucked away some where.
Anyway...if you live in Gallia, maybe we can work on getting this info?
I have zero children fro Missouri so if you can supply more info, I would be most appreciative.
Tell me more about James Elbert....maybe the James above is NOT your James "D" but another James?
