Happy to hear you found some family information that you did not have. That bothers me when I cannot trace the females in the family, they are always running off and getting married. Dayton, Ohio, huh, that's kind of interesting....born in Iowa and move east. I live up north of you in Toledo. There is no connection to me that I know of, try to post things to help everyone further their research. But then one of your Van Tuyl's married a second time and had a Madeline G. Brownfield as his step-daughter, I was curious about that as to who her father was.
Good to hear from you, if I run across anything else will post it here.
