I would be thankful for any information (and its documentation) that you could provide. Here are some of the branches of my family that I am researching:
George MOWEN (b. 1846 in OH)--descendants lived in Cadillac, Wexford Co., MI; William H. ORSER (d. 1950 in Owosso, Shiawassee Co., MI); Andrew W. GAILEY (b. Oct 1859 in OH, m. Laura BLAIR in Wells Co., IN, 1888); Benjamin J. RICHARDS (1871-1939 in MI); and Isaac GILBERT (Union Loyalist, 1742-1822).

I'm also interested in these Northwest Ohio surnames: RIFE, RENSHLER, RUDOLPH, and KARG/KARSCH. The Kargs are believed to have come from Hessen-Darmstadt.
