PICKERING posted by Kurt Pickering on Sunday, May 2, 1999

There is a Martin PICKERING heading a household in Twin Township of Darke County in 1850. I'd like to pursue him as a possible father of my mysterious great-great grandfather Joseph F. PICKERING, but my access to Ohio censuses is very limited down here in Tennessee. Supporting evidence would be that Martin, or his father, was born in Virginia - or that Martin has a son named Joseph. Any help appreciated!
