Bio Photo IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR ME, EMAIL ME DIRECTLY OR LEAVE A MESSAGE IN THE BOX BELOW. IF YOU GO THROUGH FINDAGRAVE I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER YOU. If you have any questions about the memorials I have contributed to, please feel free to contact me personally. I may have more information. Findagrave does not like it when I post too much.I also try to devote most of my time to my living family. The dead ones have to wait but I think they don't mind too much. They aren't going anywhere.

My name is Steve Lawsongatch,
I am a native of Clermont County Ohio. Most of my lines on my father's side have been in the area since the late 1700's. I am interested in history and I am generally available for look-ups and inquires about the local area. My personal ancestry in this area includes the families Gatch, Barber, McCormick, Curry, Stuntz, Lanham, Langtree,Orr,Aldridge, Paxton,Stiers,Houck,Plummer and Haynes,to name a few.

My mothers side is mostly from Monroe, and Belmont Counties in Ohio and Jackson Co. West Virginia. Those names include Mason, Rayburn, Workman, Crow,Hiett,Ball,Rader,Sommerville and Campbell.

My wife comes from the Lawson and Cox families in Whitley County Kentucky. We do alot of research of that area as well.

Feel free to contact me with any questions of my family lines or the cemeteries I have listed.I am more than willing to do transfers to descendants of memorials I have posted.

I don't know the marriage date to Maebell and Bill Stephens but she had two daughters with him, Betty and Margie. Do you know anything about who Maebell's parents were?

RE: Rachal Mason
Thank you so much for your assistance. I believe I've untangled my family. The only question I have was your Rachal's middle name Susannah? If not than I have located my Rachal. I think the spelling of Rachal, her birthdate, and married surname is what got me off track. Thanks again for helping straighten these families out. See old dogs can learn new tricks. God Bless. Mary

RE: Rachal Mason
My Rachal Susannah Haines Mason married John Mason in Greene County, Pennsylvania. My Rachel was a twin to Margaret "Hannah" Haines. Hannah married Solomon Dillion in 1818 in Adams County, Ohio. She may have been married previously, the family is unsure. Hannah died in Iroquois County, Illinois. My Rachal is spelled RACHAL. I think we may have cousins ? not sisters. Funny how the birth date is exactly the same. My Rachal and her husband, John Mason had three known children; Henry (1816-1837); John W. (1822-1889) and Sarah Jane (1828-1859). There may have been a total of eight children. I will do more searching to see who belongs to who. Thanks for the information. God Bless. Mary
