    MCDILL, MCDOWELL, MCGRIFF posted by Carolyn Sichting on Thursday, January 11, 2001

    I am searching for ggggrandfather James MCDOWELL, b 1789 N.C., who came to Ohio sometime shortly before 1808. In an interview recorded in Carroll Co., IN, he indicated he had lived in both Preble and Darke Cos. He married Susannah MCGRIFF, daughter of Thomas MCGRIFF, 27 Sept. 1808 and I have copy of register. He was listed in one book of Ohio marriages as James MCDILL. They had seven children born in Ohio. He may have come with an uncle who was his guardian when he left N.C. as an orphan; however, do not know if maternal or paternal uncle so have no clue as to name which could have been MCDOWELL. Anyone out there have any information re same? Would be most appreciative of any help.

    STOCKER posted by Suzanne Wallace on Sunday, January 14, 2001

    It is my understanding that Andrew(?) STOCKER was my great-grandfather; my grandfather was Elmer Rater STOCKER who I assume was born there. Andrew would have immigrated to the county sometime before 1876 when my grandfather was born--approx. 1850??, as Elmer was supposedly the last of 13(?) children. Other children of Andrew we believe are: Ad, Andrew, Henry, Jake, John, Flora, and Mary. Any information would be much appreciated.
