I am looking for ANY clue about who HARRIETT MARCELLUS/MARCELIS may be descended from.SHE WAS BORN JULY 5, 1807, in either NY or NJ.She married CHARLES RHINESMITH abt 1826.CHARLES AND HARRIETT [MARCELLUS] RHINESMITH came to Ohio by 1842, when their daughter, JULIA was born in Sandusky County, Ohio.They had 8 children, and at least 5 were born in New Jersey, [I believe Passiac County] I just cannot find head nor tail of this family--it is a dead end for me, but I imagine the info is out there somewhere.
The RHINESMITH Family is also of both NY and NJ, I think very close to the state line.I found only 1 clue whom HARRIETT could be related to and that is a female last name POLLEY [ this last name also shows up in the CHARLES/HARRIETT family married a CHARLES MARCELLUS, and they lived in Defiance County, Ohio.I really DON'T know if this is a connection or not. In any case I cannot find enough info to connect anyone.
HARRIETT MARCELLUS RHINESMITH died in Fulton County, Indiana in 1883.
The names of the children of HARRIETT and CHARLES RHINESMITH are
JULIA [1. Barton HARRIS, 2.Peter DIPERT, 3. Charles WILBUR]
JOHN LUTHER[Elmira Harvey]
CHARITY [ 1. Oren OLES, 2. Thomas CARTER]
MARY ELLEN [Emmerson SCHALL]
ELIZA CATHERINE[Elijah MILLER]
MATILDA[ Henry WALTERS]
OLIVER PERRY[ 1. Elizabeth BEELER2.Flora POLLEY]
THis is a long standing brick wall for us, having extended back into the 60's when my grandfather worked on this line with NO LUCK whatsoever.
IF there is anyone out there who even has a CLUE about this woman, I will be happy to hear from them!!
