Largent Family in Champaign Co OH 1811-1830
I'm fairly new to this family - I believe that my gggg-grandmother was Elizabeth Largent who married James Sibold in Champaign Co OH in 1818 (though still need to confirm whether her last name was Largent or Sargent.)
I've browsed much of the archives here and other online trees but I am finding some conflicting information and not sure what is accurate. Also, before I invest in looking up records in Champaign Co OH it would be great to find out what has already been documented, to see if I can elimiate some possibilities.
It apprears that there were several Largent families in Champaign CO OH beginning in 1811. They are sometimes mistakenly listed as "Sargent" (see examples of misspelling below) but in the census records it appears that the first record of true Sargent families in Champaign Co was in 1850.
From the HISTORY OF CHAMPAIGN COUNTY.
"In 1811, the population of the town comprised forty-five families. Among
these were [...] Randel Sargent."
"The election of Urbana Township, given as the first election held in the township, was held in Urbana October 8, 1811 [voters included] William Sargent, John Sargent, Daniel Sargent, and Nelson Sargent."
With the exception of Randall these names are all listed
as "Largent" in the ancestry census records for Champaign Co OH in 1820-1830. There is a listing in 1820 for "Randal Sargent" but in the actual image this appears to be an "L" not an "S". Also, in 1830 there is a "Vandal Largent" listed, who I suspect is the same Randal Largent of 1820.
So, my working hypothesis is that my ancestor is Elizabeth Largent, born in KY about 1800, daughter of....?
Seems that a good candidate for her father might be Nelson (see below). There is a gap of 9 years after the birth of his first 4 sons all born in KY, and possibly his first wife was named Elizabeth, though I have simply gleaned all of this info from the web and don't know what is accurate. Is there an authorative source for this family? (The link to Lucy Barrons' webpage mentioned in 1999 is broken.)
I have the census details from Champaign 1820-1840 if any one is interested.
