Much appreciate the help
I am as certain as I can be that the one you found is not the one I seek, like you I found his
parents were Irish and all pointers tell me they are not connected
That is not to say he isn't the one who first married in 1855 in Ohio
I just don't think it is (not to mention hope it isn't <g>)
Thanks again for the help
