6304 The Squirrel Hunters were Ohio's salvation of the state. They were so named for their dress and mannerisms. These Civilian soldiers were called up in response to Governor Tod's plea for a defense of Cincinnati.

On August 29-30, 1862, Confederate General E. Kirby Smith and his army completely destroyed a segment of the Union army at Richmond, Kentucky. Not until late Saturday night, August 30, did Cincinnati receive word of this defeat. News spread to this northern city that Smith was to invade and distress signals rang out. Ohio's Governor Tod issued this proclamation:
"Our southern border is threatened with invasion. I have therefore to recommend that all the loyal men of your counties at once form themselves into military companies and regiments to beat back the enemy at any and all points he may attempt to invade our State. Gather up all the arms in the country, and furnish yourselves with ammunition for the same. The service will be of but a few days duration. The soil of Ohio must not be invaded by the enemies of our glorious Government."

There was no defense of Cincinnati pertaining to a large force. The only obstacle in the Confederate General's way was a few unmanned guns in back of Covington and the crossing of the Ohio River. Volunteers anxious to preserve their part of their Union answered an immediate response through the State. Men of all walks of life answered to the call of the defense of Cincinnati. Laborers, farmers, mechanics and many other occupational skilled men were to drop their labors and heed to the call. A total of 15,766 men responded from the Buckeye State. Warren County had a total of 436.

"From morning till night the streets resounded with the tramp of armed men marching to the defense of the city. From every quarter of the State they came, in every form of organization, with every species of arms. The 'Squirrel Hunters,' in their homespun garments, with powder- horn and buckskin pouch.

"Half-organized regiments, some in uniform and some without, some having waited long enough to draw their equipments and some having marched without them; cavalry and infantry; all poured out from the railroad depots and down toward the pontoon bridge. "The ladies of the city furnished provisions by the wagon-load; the Fifth Street markethouse was converted into a vast free eating saloon for the Squirrel Hunters; halls and warehouses were used as barracks."

6312 The Watkins Genealogy says that he was "killed in the Civil War," but no date or place are given. There is no Elisha Watkins listed as a soldier from Ohio, but there is an Eli J.Watkins and a Elijah Watkins who are listed with Company D, 95th Ohio Infantry. He might have been one of these two soldiers.

There is an Private Eli Watkins, who served in Company C. 98th Infantry Regiment who died on 2 April 1864. 
WATKINS, Elisha (I117)
 
6313 At least one living or private individual is linked to this note - Details withheld. Family F56
 
6314 The were listed as Henry and Catherine Hanabaum, and his age was recorded at 40. Family F1389
 
6315 The Wesleyan Chapel was built in 1837. An adjacent schoolroom was added later, on land purchased by Robert Wyburn. He was the owner of the Manor at the time and a Wesleyan Local Preacher. The Sunday School operated from this building, and the Superintendent for over 60 years was George Haggett who died in 1921. After many years of service to the community the Chapel closed in the early 1970s...

Slightly further along Causeway, on the right, is the Manor House, now converted to X separate houses. This was the seat of the Lord of Woolavington Manor, originally (following the Norman Conquest) one Robert de Candos of Nether Stowey. The house has been much altered over the centuries, but the existing property is thought to date, at least in part, from the 16th century...

The house in which the Wyburns lived is said to be the house north of the church, known since 1851 as the Manor House, owned and occupied by the Wyburn family after c 1840 but divided by 1909. The Manor House is said to date from the 16th century but has been much altered...

6316 The White Lion is first mentioned by name in 1786 and it served as the main pub of the village until 1913. At that time it was purchased by the Wyburns of the nearby Manor. Miss Rhoda Wyburn was a Temperance worker and after the purchase the licence was allowed to lapse. In addition to being a pub it was the social centre of the village and the local Sick Club, which was established in 1854, operated from the premises. WYBURN, Rhoda (I6121)
 
6317 The will of Peter Kelly, dated 12 May 1854, and proved 6 January 1857, mentioned his two eldest sons Jeremiah Kelly and Henry Kelly, son John Kelly, wife and daughters (unnamed) [Logan co.,OH Will Book A: 302-4, FHL film #534,847] KELLY, Judge Peter (I3449)

6329 There are eight years between Mercy and Eliza suggesting that they may have had different mothers. WESTLAKE, Eliza (I5503)
 
6330 There are two candidates that may have been Rachel Ann Ten Eyck. The first is shown living in East and West Amwell Townships, New Jersey on 30 August 1850. She was 17 and living in the household of George and Hannah Nevins. The compelling thing about this candidate is how closely she lived to Pennsylvania where Rachel Wyburn's first child was born in 1854.

The second candidate was shown living in Hillsborough, Somerset, New Jersey in September, 1850. She was living 16 and living in the household of John (age 50) and Catherine (age 49) Doeharty. What's compelling about this Rachel is that her age is closer to that of the ages of Rachel as shown in the 1860 and 1870 census. 
TEN EYCK, Rachel Ann (I253)
 
6331 There are two sons and two daughter-in-laws listed in the household of Nathan and Lettitia Smith in 1880. It is not clear who is married to whom; so the assumption was made that the older son married the older daughter-in-law, and the younger, the younger. UNKNOWN, Elizabeth (I6049)
 
6332 There are two sons and two daughter-in-laws listed in the household of Nathan and Lettitia Smith in 1880. It is not clear who is married to whom; so the assumption was made that the older son married the older daughter-in-law, and the younger, the younger. HARRINGTON, Adaline (I6050)
 
6333 There is a comment that says, "x Wiveliscombe." WYBURN, Judeth (I6175)
 
6334 There is a Daniel F. Eddy, 19, listed in the 1860 Census. EDDY, Daniel Thomas (I8239)
 
6335 There is a John Shifferly listed as living in the household of John and Barbara Shifferly Hauenstein. He is listed as 45. Perhaps it is this John Schifferly. SCHIFERLI, John (I9985)
 
6336 There is a one year old girl named Henrietta listed in this census. Is this the same girl called Emma in the 1920 Census? DULING, Emma (I7148)
 
6337 There is a question about when Isabella was born. In the 1841 England Census she was listed as seven; in the 1851 England Census she was listed as seventeen. Those ages lead one to believe that she was born in 1834. However in the 1860 Census in the United States she was 24, and in the 1870 Census she was listed as 34. These suggest that she was born in 1836. Moreover, 1836 is the year of her birth on her gravestone in the Heuston Cemetery in Forest, Ohio. WYBURN, Isabella (I3507)
 
6338 There is a record on Ancestry.com showing a George Minson Wyburn being born March 1840 in Bridgewater, Somerset, England WYBURN, George Minson (I3888)
 
6339 There is a record on the Elm Lawn Cemetery roster on the Bay County Genealogical Society's website that says his death took place on December, 13, 1904. TODD, William John (I285)
 
6340 There is a Sarah Butler listed in Jefferson Township, Logan County, OH. She is living with another female between the ages of 30 and 40 and two children (a boy and a girl) less than 5 years. This leads me to believe that Daniel was dead by 1840 and that Sarah had one of her daughters who, in turn, had two young children, all living with her. WATKINS, Sarah (I124)
 
6341 There is a stone marked Capt. H. B. Patterson, (Co. G, 132 Ohio Inf.), which apparently is his as others of his family are buried near it. PATTERSON, Henry B. (I11471)
 
6342 There is an "L. Yost" listed as a student at O.S.U., and since Lytle was not listed as living with his parents, this might have been he. YOST, Lytal Johnson (I13977)
 
6343 There is an Ella Louise Wyburn Mills who died March 6, 1915 whose cremated remains were interred March 10, 1915 in Lot 24131. WYBURN, Ella Louise (I6072)
 
6344 There is little to substantiate this. It is merely that his wife is listed as a widow in the 1929 census. However, often "widow" was the term used by a divorced woman. BRIERLEY, George Cree (I15372)
 
6345 There is little to tie the John N. Swartz to his family except that in this census the birthplace of his parents is correct (father in Pennsylvania and mother in Ohio). SWARTZ, John Newton (I11878)
 
6346 There is no hard evidence that this is the correct Ira F. Swartz; however, his age is correct and his continued employment by the railroad is consistent. Family F1816
 
6347 There is no idea who this was or what became of her. She simply shows up in the 1940 Census as the wife of Richard K. Eddy. UNKNOWN, Georgia (I14763)
 
6348 There is no proof that Willie was the son of William Helm Watkins and his wife, Christena Smith Watkins, but the proximity of his grave to hers and the fact that his name is usually a nickname for William, suggest strongly that he was their son. Could the middle initial 'S' stand for Smith, his mother's maiden name? WATKINS, Willie S. (I11198)
 
6349 There is nothing that will positively tie Rachel to the family of Jeremiah and Elsey Hoagland Ten Eyck. However, in the 1840 Census they had a daughter who was between 5 and 10, and Rachel would have been about five.

She was not listed with Jeremiah and Elsey in the 1850 Census, but several pages later she was found living with the family of John and Catherine Doeharty. Could Catherine have been an aunt? More likely is that Rachel had "gone into service" working for the Doeharty family. 
TEN EYCK, Rachel Ann (I253)
 
6350 There is nothing to support that Pennsylvania Hill was John's wife, but his wife, Elizabeth, seems to have died, and Pennsylvania's name is listed directly after John's. UNKNOWN, Pennsylvania (I10581)
