The Monroe, Ohio, County digest of old newspapers put together by Mr. Gina M Reasoner, includes the following advertisement:
"Sept. 28, 1853 - REWARD for relatives of John Catlett, aged 16, apprenticed to John H. Goodhart of Calais."
Several Catlett researchers have concluded that John Catlett, his brother William who was in the Mortimore Triplett household in 1850, and his brother, Henry, who was in the Winemiller household in 1850, all migrated to Sullivan County, MO., along with sister Martha Jane Meeks sometime after 1860. It is believed that these Catlett "children" were orphaned when their parents were killed by Indians. However, the proof is circumstantial at best.
Do any Goodhart family researchers have knowledge from family stories, etc., of John H. Goodhart and his young charge, John Catlett? The Goodhart family along with John Catlett are in the 1850 census for Monroe County. John Goodhart is listed as a 30 year old blacksmith who was born in VA.
