Re: Yolton Family Tree
Thanks John for your note,
I found the marriage of Maggie Ralston 24 yrs old & John S. Yolton 26 yrs old m Sept 19, 1894 in Hancock co WV marriage records.
They were listed in a note on her mother Sarah's 62nd birthday party as Mr. & Mrs Sherman Yolton of Frankfort Springs PA.
I'm trying to determine who her father James Ralston parents were- I think a Joseph Ralston & Mary Morehead. James obit in 1909 listed he was born in Greene Co PA..
so looking for proof on that- He had a sister Mrs. Susan w/o Thomas Lowry of Burgettstown & a sister Mrs. James Ayers of Hickory PA. Sarah's ob dated 1916 listed a sister Mrs. Margaret Craven of Cincinnati Ohio.
I have a Jane Ralston b abt 1795 who married William Wilson b. abt 1787, They had abt 5 kids- one of whom was a Sarah Jane Wilson who married Alexander Morrow, Sarah Jane 1813- d. Dec 31 1886 with 7 kids- I think this is the connection that had the grandaughter Ann Morrow Lindbergh. Still looking for clues on this info.
Jane Ralston & William Wilson had kids Samuel W. 1817, John 1818 m. Elizabeth Owings, Robert & Sarah Jane & Daniel who may have married a Jean Ralston- (cousin of Jane Ralston above)This Daniel may have been a sheriff of the county & maybe went to Calif & died there- still digging on that..
I have names & dates on Samuel, John & Elizabeth, Sarah but don't have alot of info on these Wilson's yet, they lived around New Manchester,Hancock co, maybe had a motel/hotel ?& or saddle shop there. I haven't found out when this William Wilson died but think I have a copy of Jane Ralston Wilson's will 1867 that's where I got the names of her kids.
Jane Ralston & William Wilson got land on Kings Creek from her parents Samuel & Martha Tucker Ralston in 1829.
I think Jane was a sister to my GGG grfather Samuel Ralston b. 1801 d. 1881 & wife Elizabeth McConnell they are also buried at the Three Springs cemetery, along with my GGgr parents Alexander Andrew Ralston & Rachel Whitson.
My GG Alex got a part of the dower land of Martha's in 1876 so think he was from the family lines of Samuel & Martha Tucker Ralston.
Samuel & Martha Tucker Ralston had 4 sons & 8 daughters, Samuel had a brother Joseph who married Ann McCready then Sarah Greer of Carroll co OH, this Joseph had 16 kids listed in his will. So I've been tracking down all these kids & looking for info on all the branches there from Kings creek.
Both Joseph & Samuel named sons Joseph, Samuel, John & Andrew. both of the 3rd gen of Samuels married a wife named Elizabeth....one of them is my 4th gr grfather.
Thanks for your note, It made my day brighter.
I'll send you an email too, but wanted to post abit more on my Ralston searching incase others might have some connections to them too.
