Point Family of Allen County, Ohio
I am seeking information on two children of Daniel and Esther Meeker Point who lived at least for a time in Allen County, Ohio.Their sons, William G. and Charles, married Anne and Hannah Patton, daughters of John and Rachel Clawson Patton.It appears that both Anne and Hannah died young, and both brothers remarried.From the census, it appears that William and Anne had at least two children, Rachel (c. 1847) and William (circa 1851).It does not appear that Charles and Hannah had any children.Hannah had previously married William Manning/Mannard.
Does anyone know more about these brothers?I know that Charles went to Iowa and had a large family with his third wife.I believe that William probably died in or near Delphos, Ohio.
On a related note, I'm interested in Esther Meeker Point.I descend from James Meeker who lived in Delaware Co, Ohio in 1850, through his son Orange Meeker who married Rebecca Young.Given that both Esther and James lived in Delaware County, I wonder if there could be a connection.I know little about the Meekers.The Meekers also came to Allen County, Ohio in the 1860s.
Any information is appreciated.
