The Weersing/Arick Homepage

Updated February 21, 2002

I am researching these lines:
ARICK/ARRICK, LEE, PETTY, FAULKNER, LINN, CHENOWETH, KALER, DUNKLE, FOREMAN, CAREY, SAGE, PILCHER (who all came together from Virginia or Pennsylvania to settle in Ohio)__________________________________________________

I am also researching these family lines:
WEERSING, NIES, NIEWENHAUS, LOOJENGOED (from The Netherlands and Holland, Michigan)
I am searching for the descendants and ancestors of William H. Lee, a branch of the Lees of Virginia, who was born May 14, 1752. I believe his children were Catherine, Joseph, William Henry Lee, Sarah, Elizabeth, ASEL*, Jeremiah, and MARY ANN**. __________________________________________________---*Asel Lee was born June 14, 1778 in Pennsylvania or Virginia and married Mary W. Rollins. He died Feb.18, 1857 in Perry County, Ohio. They lived for a time in Batesville, Noble County, Ohio.----**Mary Ann Lee(1789-1885)married Travis Petty (1776-1848) on Feb. 14 1807 in Prince William County, VA.
Travis and Mary Ann Lee Petty died in Noble County, Ohio. If you are any way related, no matter how distant, I would be interested in hearing from you.
