Hi Barbara,

John Goldrick & Diantha Maxwell were also my great great grandparents through their daughter Hannah who married Seth Fernand Van Dyke. I am the researcher that Janet told you about in her reply to you. Hannah & Seth had 2 daughters Ada & Elsie Iola Van Dyke(my grandmother). Elsie married Clark E. Zumwalt Sr. I don't know who Ada married, I am hoping to reconnect with her family. Are you a descendant of Ada Van Dyke or one of John & Diantha's daughters? John & Diantha had 6 daughters Eva, Enolla, Esta Jane, Edith, Sarah, & Hannah(my great grandmother). We have a family picture of John & Diantha & daughters. I have found John's parents they are Peter Goldrick & Hannah (maiden name unknown). Peter was born in Ireland,8,Apr,1791 died Muskingum Co.,OH 4,July,1832. Hannah was born in Pennsylvania. I found a land sale record for a Peter McGoldrick,
wife Hannah in 1823 in Belmont Co. OH. I believe that Peter dropped the Mc from the name. I understand that sometimes this happened
because they wanted to hide that they were Irish. They're was a time
when it was not popular to be Irish in the United States. I am still
trying to determine if Peter came to the U.S. as a young man or came
here as a child with his parents. I will let you know if I find
anything else. I hope this helps.

a Cousin,

Cheryl Zumwalt Ayres
