The 1900 Minnesota census states that our ancestor, John GRAHAM, was born in OH in February 1868. Some other sources give the year as 1867 and 1869. Abt 1893, John married (place unknown) Helen DETLING, who was born 1876 in Sheboygan, WI. Helen's parents were Jacob DETLING, born 1844, and Augusta OTTO, born 1847.
The birth record, found at St. Phillips Catholic Church in Bemidji, MN, of John and Helen's son, Robert GRAHAM, born in 1907, has a notation that Robert married Georgianna SHIVELY NINEATH(?) in Greenville, OH. No date given. We're hoping this note is a clue that we should be searching in Darke County for our GRAHAMs.
If a lister has access to the 1870 and 1880 Darke County Census, would you please check for a John GRAHAM who would be age 2 or son the 1870 and age 12 or so in the 1880 census. Who are his parents and siblings???
I understand the birth records prior to 1908 for Darke County have been published in a book no longer available. If a lister has access to this publication, would you check for the birth of John GRAHAM in Feb 1867, 1868, and 1869? (His middle initial may have been F.)
Thank you for your kindness and if I can assist you in Minnesota, please, ask.
HIESTAND, Joseph Myers (1827-1890) married
