Re: Mary Davis
Hello Rick, I am looking for my 2nd great-grandmother, Mary Davis Bolon. She lived in Goshen Township, Belmont Co., Ohio for most of her life. There are many Davis families in Belmont Co., but I can not find any to whom she is related. She was born 7 Aug 1819 and died 21 Nov 1909. Her husband, William Bolon, I don't believe was a Quaker, but they seemed to move from Virginia to Ohio with the Quakers and there are some Quakers married into the Bolons (or vise versa). William died before Mary Davis Bolon. Do you have any personal information about the Mary Davis Memorial 61252121 that you have listed? I see you posted her picture so I hope you do. Is it a possibility that she returned to her maiden name and to the Quaker religion after being married? Grasping for straws, Joanne.

John and Sarah Doudna

hullo, looks like we have duplicate memorials for John and Sarah Doudna. are you a descendant of theirs? I am. what shall we do about this? or should we just leave thing be? I really see no harm in it myself.
