George Washington "wash" Cohoon
Birth: Apr., 1836
Delaware County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov., 1908
Fayette County
Illinois, USA

"GRANDFATHER" George was the 7th son of Stephen Cohoon & Margaret Peggy (Cole) Cohoon. George married Sarah Metheny Jul 23, 1857 in Jasper Co.,IL. She died Feb 8, 1882. in Schlusser, Clark Co.,IL. We record ten births to this union:
James Marion , Alexander A , Simon Peter , Ruth , Rachel , Thomas C. , Noah Cornelius 'Neal' and three died as infants.
He then married Sidney A. Johnson on Feb 13, 1883 in Jasper Co.,IL. This union was blessed with Margaret Dellie and Benjamin 'Harry' Harrison.
GRAVE -- Uncle Harry did show me a 'home' made stone in the Old City Cemetery that he said was the grave of George Washington Cohoon and as best Uncle Harry could remember grandfather's death was late November maybe 1908.
