Bartholomew Solomon YEAGLEY WilliamsCoOH

  of 186

According to Defiance Co, OH biography Bartholomew YEAGLEY died in 24 Dec 1863. Obituary for Adam YEAGLEY, his grandson, Bart died on Christmas Eve 1876 at home of a daughter near Evansport. On the 1860 census, enumerated with Anthony D. YEAGLEY, is Solomon Yeagley (age 84) whose year of birth is 1776..... the same year that Bartholomew was born according to the obit and bio. I went to Dommersville Cemetery in Defiance Co, OH and read the stone as best as I could, the stone was almost illegible. I could make out Solomon YEAGLEY Died Dec 2_, ___5 age 99? 5m 2_ d. The cemetery was read in 1978 by the Defiance Co. Gen. Soc. They transcribed as: Solomon Yeagley Died Dec 23/5 1895/1905 89y 5m 21d. If Solomon was 99y 5m 21d when he died.....on the date Bartholomew did, Dec 24, 1875/6.......3 July 1776 would be his birth date. I think Bart and Solomon are the same person. Can anyone help me solve this mystery. Things keep getting more and more confusing.
