I am a lifelong resident of the Great State of Ohio as is my wife, Sylvia (nee Divine). We both were born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. Our sons, Jason Eric(Liz) and Andrew John (Tracy)
live in Ohio and Virginia respectivly.
Our grandchildren include Ruby, Sean and Elissa.

I have been searching and recording family history since 1963. I try to document and source all "finds" with at least two references. The family names most prominent on my side are Piatt, Pyatt, Peatt, Peyatte, Hays, Hayes, Heise, Gillilan, Gilliland, Lane, Ours, Howell and Harman or Harmon.
On Sylvia's side the family names are Divine, Devine, Devane, Pence, Shidler, Scheidler, Penn, Iams, Beh, and Leonard.

Our ancestors are quite a mix of national origin, religions,occupations and military service. Both my wife and I claim pioneer ancestors in Ohio, from the great migration west from New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Our national origins are from Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Germany and Alsace-Lorraine. Our religious origins include Quaker, Anglican, Roman Catholic,
Methodist,Lutheran,Episcopal and Methodist Episcopal and many other Christian Denominations.

We have battled nearly every American war and served in peace time as well.

I welcome inquiries,and should I have a mistake, I am open to correction on unsourced information or a correction of my sources.
