Eileen, first let me apologize for mixing up my Frederick's.
I have a Frederick Slentz that was married twice. The families are connected. Secondly, I seem to have miss placed the name of the woman who sent me the following. I don't have her name amoung me E-mail addresses either. The Schallenbarger Family in Wayne Co. by Charles J. Schollenbarger. I am shortening this up abit. Jacob Shallenbarger, a millwright and trustee of Congress Twp. in 1830, grandfather of Gene Stratton Porter, and cousin to Frederick. Jacob seems to have induced Isaac Fickes, brother to Rebecca S., and Frederick to come from PA to Wayne Co. or to finance building a saw and grist mill, now near Wooster, OH. Isaac Fickes died in 1851 and John S., his brothers Henry and Isaac purchased the mill.
Henry S. bought land in 1848 in Milton Twp. Wayne Co. OH., called Highland Farm. Rebecca and his children must have come from Cumberland, KY about this time. Frederick is believed to have died before the family came to OH.
See if any of this matches with what you know about your Isaac. Childern: Euthemia, b. 25 Sept. 1863, d. 14 Oct. 1884, buried in Canaan Cem., Winfield, b. abt. 1865, Ellen, b. abt. 1869, Mary Jane, b. abt. 1871, mar. Alfred Fellaboam(?), Clinton, Silas, mar. Sonela from Dalton, and a newborn.
Traditonal story was that father, mother, and newborn all died of TB within a few days of each other. The other children were brought up by relatives and friends. Euthemia and Jane lived with John S. - 1880 census.
I have a lot of info I haven't had time to check on, that I got off the Internet. All I have for Frederick are his parents: Hans Jopple Schallenbarger and Susanna Stover. My line is their daughter Mary Ann that married Eli Slentz.
I have come across the Woolem/Woolam name in my reseach. I will have to go through my stuff again and find it to be sure just where. I will admit that I haven't kept real good track of where I have found things. I hope I haven't confused you too much.
