Michael D. Roush, Pres., PO Box 783, Wolfeboro, NH03896 (PH:603-569-6913)
Due to the vastness of the ROUSH family, the only work I am able to do on it is to locate missing old lines of the family.I am currently working on two lines of the Rev. War soldier, Henry ROUSH.He has two children whose lines have almost nothing done on them.
I am familiar with your part of the family as I have done the Sons of the American Revolution application for Michael SWISHER here in Meigs County, Ohio.I also taught with Joyce (SWISHER) HILL, who is from the SCOTT and SWISHER families, too.
I don't know how much would might be interested, but Solomon SWISHER fought in the Civil War for the Union.That likely makes you eligible to join the oldest women's hereditary society in the U.S.--the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic (LGAR).The organization was formed in 1881 for female descendants of Union soldiers.We have a large chapter of the organization here in Meigs County (and includes Gallia County).Applicants pay a one-time application fee of $10 plus annual dues of $15 per year.Applicants must document their connection to the Union ancestor.If you are interested, I would be happy to send more information and an application to you.My daughter is both local and Ohio president of the organization right now.I am past commander of the Ohio Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the male counterpart.
