I am trying to find a date of death & place of burial for Maria/Mary KNOCH. We don't have a birth record for Maria but information in our family Bible appears to give her date of birth as January or July 1823. We have been unable to determine the correct spelling of her maiden name, but it may not help if we did as her name is spelled differently on every document we find. Her marriage record shows "Goltatne", her son's death certificate lists her as "Goldney" and her daughter's death cert says "Goltaire" or "Galtaire." Maria married Harmon/Herman KNOCH in Ross Co, OH in 1840. They are together in the Ohio census records until after Harmon's death in 1866. Mary married William A Doyle in 1867 and is found with him in the 1870 census in Huntington Twp, Ross co. along with two of her daughters, Phoebe & Louisa. In 1880, Maria/Mary is living with her daughter Phoebe who has married John WEATHERSPOON. They are in Clinton co, Ohio, and Maria is listed as "Mary KNOCH", mother-in-law to John. I do not find her in the 1900 census of Ohio. If you have a connection to this family, or advice for me regarding this search, I would appreciate hearing from you.
Surnames connected with Harmon & Maria's children are: COX, FRESHOUR, HILLMAN, PURDUM, REASTER/REESTER/REISTER, ROBINSON, ROONEY, WETHERSPOON/WEATHERSPOON
