I am in need of some serious help, and am hoping you can help me. My gggrandfather was Samuel Easterday (B. 05/03/1820 supposedly born in Wayne county, Ohio; M. to my gggrandmother, his fourth marriage, Rhoda Monroe on 09/04/1863 in DeKalb county, Indiana; D. 01/12/1905 also in DeKalb county and is buried in Krontz Cemetery with Rhoda). I have been told that his father was Michael Easterday and his mother was Elizabeth Lantz. I have located Michael in the 1830 and 1840 census in Ohio (Wayne county, Mohican township which later became Ashland) and also in various tax records also from this county. I was assuming from the age in the census that he was born between 1770 and 1780 and since I couldn't locate him in the 1850 census that he passed away between 1840 and 1850. Samuel (and his sister Tracey Easterday Topper) have listed his birthplace as Maryland. Now for the big question...Do you have any idea who his parents were, where he was born, or any ideas as to where to look for this information? I cannot seem to locate him before 1830. I've looked in Fredricksburg county, Maryland and also under the various spellings of Ostertag, Osterday, etc. but cannot seem to get past 1830. Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide!
