JOHN & Franklin Rhyan 1880 Vigo Co Indiana Census
Posted by: Joan Cole Clark (ID *****4131) Date: October 27, 2002 at 20:13:08

On the 1880 Vigo Co, Fayette township Indiana Census there is a Franklin Rhyan listed age 45 born in VA. In his household is a John Rhyan age 81 born in 1799 in Virgina listed as father. And also a Winnie Rhyan 75 listed as mother.
My gr gr grandfather John Ryan was born about 1799/1800 in Monongalia Co VA. He married Nancy Lewellen in 1822 in Momongalia Co VA. She died in 1847 and left a baby daughter Catherine Ryan who was my gr grandmother. She was raised by Nancy's brother Ralaigh Lewellen and his wife Catherine.
I am searching for John Ryan and any of his decendants. I found marriage record for a John Ryan and Winne Ryan 20 May 1851 in Peoria Co Illinois. Also a marriage record for Franklin D Ryan and Edith Schell 12 Nov 1857 in Dekab Indiana. Is this my gr gr grandfather with his 2nd wife?
Is John Rhyan and John Ryan the same person? This Rhyan family is buried in the Shepherd Cemetery in Vigo Co IN.
I will appreciate any information about this family.
