* The Wise Family Home Page*

Updated November 13, 2006

I am researching the following Surnames that relate to the WISE FAMILY TREE: Wise, Weaver, MacLean, Winegarner, Melick, Field, Milstead,Flinn, Calhoun, and Spoon.

The Wise, Weaver, Flinn, & Spoon families all came from PA to OH
The MacLean family is from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
The Winegarner and Melick families are from NJ & OH
The Field family came from Virginia to Ohio where they lived in Hopewell Twsp. Muskingum Co. OH

Washington, County PA is a center of my family history
Licking County and Muskingum Counties in Ohio are also places very key to the WISE, WINEGARNER, FIELD and MacLean families

A recent major find (February 12, 2001) was my Great Great Great Grandfather, Dudley Field b. bet. 1802 - 1811. His spouse was Eliza Milstead. Update: On March 7, 2001 I found the Martha Field Bible in Muskingum Co. OH and it contained the names of Dudley Field and Eliza Milstead making it very clear that my February 12, 2001 discovery was indeed correct.

An even more recent major find was when my mother Mary Jane (Flinn) Wise received a call from her niece Gwen (Flynn) Gongaware. Gwen said that my mohter's brother Harry Flynn was in the Cleveland Clinic with cancer and that he may not live long. Our families have not had more than a few incidents of contact over the years. Now it looks as though we will have a photo of my grandmother Grace (Cummins) Flinn and we will get to know our first cousins in PA.
