Hello, My name is Lisa Lazasz-Maresh and my mother was an Applegarth from Ohio. I know that my gr-gr-gr grandparents were a George Applegarth and Jane Hethrington (Heatherington) and I would appreciate any information that you have on them.My great great grandfather was Elmer Elsworth Applegarth Sr. I have a copy of his obituary here and it lists his parents as George and Jane Heatherington Applegarth.
