Re: William H. Sayles, 1881, Mentor, Ohio - seeking history
I can not help you specifically but maybe together we can solve both of our mysteries.
In my Nuttle family I have a X great aunt Sara Ann Nuttle b: Jul 19, 1809, in New York.We believe she married a Lemuel Sayles as in 1850 there is a Sara and Lemuel were living next to my 2nd great grandfather and his brother in Milan, Allen, Indiana
The family was living in Milan, Erie, Ohio in the 1860 census.We believe she died there between 1874 and 1880.
It is possible that the marriage to Lemuel Sayles was a second marriage and her first husband was a Haskins.
Your Sayles family is living close enough in place and time to be somewhat related to Lemuel and Sara.I am willing to share what I know about this family if you think there is the possibility of a connection.
