Hi I am Nancy Crawford Spallinger. I am researching the Yants in Allen County and Stark and Tuscarawas Co Ohio I am linked throught Downing/Beemer My daughter in law is linked through the Yants in Tuscarawas and her maiden name is Yant. I am trying to get straight some information. A source gave me a direct link back to Melchoir Yant, but somehow I think she took a wrong curve along the way. I have read all the stones at the Rockport and Cairo Cemeteries in Allen County.I have a fairly updated Rockport Cemtery Record here at home that I have put out on the web at several places.There are many of the Yants in these cemeteries. But... Somehow I have the line back messed up I think

John Yantb 1755d 1842 in Tuscarawas Co m Mary Eva Schuster 3.Samuel Yant b 12-27-1782 in Ohio d 10-26-1869 m Susannah Runyon 3.Henry Yant b 1784 in Carroll Co Ohid m Mary Margaret Stoody b 1-31-1798 Washington co Pa 4 Noah B Yant b 4-27-1827 Rose Twp Carroll Co Oh d 9-30-1909 brd Cairo Oh m Drusilla Miller b 4-7-1828 Carroll Co Oh(dau of James MIller and Rachel Knotts (grandaughter of Isaac Miller and Drusilla Downing 4 Daniel H Yant m 5-13-1854 Amanda S Pugh

One of the puzzles I have is where does this John Yant fit in ? This was added in to Henry Yant and Magaret Stoody's line.
John Yant b 1805 in Canton Twp Stark Co Ohdied abt 1849 m Lydia Jolly b 6-16-1803 children Daniel Yant b 1-12-1828 Canton Twp Stark Co Ohd 2-2-1895 Pike Twp Stark Co Oh m Sophia Kinney(dau of Peter Kinnet and Elizabeth May children Peter Kinney Yant Sarah Elizabeth Yant William Preston Yant Cordelia Yant John Yant Martha Loemma Yant Bertha Florence Yant Ida May Yant
In the above maze of Yants I am a shirt tale cousin on the Downing side and the Beemer side My daughter in law is a Yant through John Yant (son of Melchoir) Anyhow.. Does any of this look straight or can you see a curve in it where I went wrong.??? Thanks for looking Nancy Crawford Spallinger firstname.lastname@example.org
