George and Elizabeth France Maryland, OH
Posted by: Donna Wolf (ID *****4646) Date: June 27, 2011 at 09:15:11

I'm looking for information on the family of George and Elzabeth France who resided in Clark Co. OH in the 1860 census. George was born in Pa and Elizabeth in MD. In the household were: Henry, Martin, Mary, Matha, Kate, Susan, Nimrod, George and Charles.

There is a story in the family indicating that some member of the family was a jockey in Maryland. There was betting on a quarter horse race. He won enough money to go to California and bought a large house.

Susan married Joseph Nelson. Pelmico race track in Balimore was only established in 1870.

Any help appreciated,
