Some information which may be pf use tp you.... Lewis Napoleon Baughman and Lydia Effie Breese were m. in Hardin County, Ohio 10 August,1881. One more of Robert and Lydia Breeceıs children was still alive in 1910. This would be Nancy who m. Jesse Claypool 25 September,1855 d. in 1914 and is b. at Rounhead Cemetery as are Amanda (Breece) GILMORE and her husband Isaac GILMORE. Although the name appears as GILLMAN in some records that is not correct. Isaac is a son of Catherine (Yike) Gilmore (Baughman) by her first m. to Nathan GILMORE.After Nathanıs d. in 1854 Catherine m. David Baughman in 1856. The Lydia Breece who m.Lewis N. Baughman is William and Sarah (Axtell) Breeceıs daughter. I wasnıt sure from your posting as to whether which Lydia was which was understood. Lewis and Lydia Baughman had FIVE children,ALL of whom were married and have descendents throughout Hardin and Logan Counties of Ohio as well as other areas of the US. As you probably know Mabel was the eldest, b.25 July 1885. Their remaining chidren are: William Carl, b.16 December 1887 m. Mattie Evelyn Hites 14 January 1909, Carl,as he was called, d.15 June 1965. Ray Banning b. 24 October 1889 m. Edith Alpha Wren 12 June 1907, Ray d. 11 December 1961. James b. 21 May 1894 m. Mabel L. Houseworth 9 November 1916. ³Jim³ d. 11 March 1958. Robert Breese b.27 June 1898 m.Nancy Pearl Bartlett 4 January 1917 Robert d. 22 September 1968. William CARL was my grandfather I am descended from him through my father Harold Baughman. Lydia and Lewis owned and lived on various farms throughout Hardin and Logan Couties, Ohio as well as operating bakeshops in several small towns in the same areas including a shop in Kenton in the 1910ıs. You will find some fairly accurate information regarding Robert and William Breece in the Warner Beers 1883 History of Hardin County, either in the original edition or in the 1983 reprint edition. I have some further information on Lydia Henryıs family and on Amanda Gilmoreıs as well. Once again I hope this helps you in your research.
