Marriages are taken mostly from records of marriages at the Painesville Court House located in Painesville, Lake County, Ohio. (Lake County was formed from Geauga County about 1840.)

Deaths are mostly from gravestone inscriptions in the various cemeteries which are not far from where I live. Some info comes from census of various years. Also info gathered from wills, old Painesville Telegraph newspapers starting about 1822, etc.
