Most of my Atkinson and Clark research centers around Southern Ohio, in Harrison, Perry, Morgan, Athens, and Franklin counties.

Several Clark Cousins have shared their research, for which I thank them. John Clark moved from Maryland to Pennslyvania, reaching Perry County, about 1820.

My Mansfield, Oyler and Stevens research has been centered in northern Ohio. The Oylers were originally from North Carolina, before moving to the midwest. They spend time in both Peru, Indiana and the Toledo Ohio Area. The research for the Oyler line was started back in the 1930's. Miriam Fredericks and her mother performed much of the orginal research. Curt Gamble is the current keeper of the Oyler research. Also, many of the Oyler releated names have not been added to my list.

Curt Gamble has just finished a book on the Oyler Family, that inculdes some information on the Fifer, Wissinger and Speegle families.

The Gulianio and Juliano surnames are from Caustelmaur, Italy, where my wife's Grandparents were from.
