Hi, My name is Sid Haddon (HDSIDNEY@AOL.COM). I am researching information for William C. Haddon b. 1790 near Harpers Ferry , Va.He married Eliza Favor in 1815 at Frederick, Md. They moved to Muskingham, County Ohio shortly after the marriage. William was living with his son Valentine in 1860 in Washington township, Hocking County , Ohio
I am trying to find out Williams parents names as well as any information about his life in Ohio . I believe he died about 1865 in Hocking County as Valentine moved to Missouri about this time.
Also living in the household at this 1860 census time was William Turner who was the father of Valentines wife Nancy (Turner). He would have died between 1860 and 1865 also I believe. Any info on his parents would also be appreciated. William Turner was born 1785 in Maryland . Info on where they are buried would be great.
Thanks, Sid Haddon
