I received this e-mail from a guy on June 8th. I'll post what he said, but I'd have to ask his permission to give him your e-mail. I will tell him about this website.
<I was looking in the Preston Family Genealogy forum for some connections and
I came across your response to a Sarah Preston. In it you indicated that
you have a lot of Prestons from you mothers side that came to Licking Co.
Ohio at the turn of the century.
I am looking for connections to four brothers born in Maryland moved to
Washington Co. Pa and then to Licking Co. Ohio 1810
The brothers are:
Nathan Preston b 1777 Maryland d 1846 m Mary Belt
Samuel Preston m Rachel Frost abt 1810
Jonathan Preston m Harriet
Jacob Preston never married
They lived in Newton Township around the town of Chatham Ohio in Licking
Nathan is my connection he had a son named Jacob Preston b
March 9, 1814 d May 10, 1866 m Elizabeth Sophia Harding
Jacob and Elizabeth had eleven children Mary,
George, Martha, William, Calista, Sarah, Althea, Samuel, Jacob, Henry,
The parents of Leona (my maternal grandmother, great aunt Martha, great uncle Walter, and great uncle A.M. Preston came to Utica, Ohio around 1800 and built a self-sufficient farm. Leona was the only one that married. She had Ruby, Edward, and M. Isabel (my mom, deceased). Ruby had Raymond and Twila; Edward had Timothy; Isabel had me and my brother, Brian. Neither of us has married or had children.
The fellow that e-mailed me is going to be in touch with my cousin Tim because it sounds very much like we have relatives in common. I'll keep you posted.
