I am looking for 2 graves. One is Mary Ringer Rush. She lived in Huntington Twp., Ross County along the Pee Pee Creek. So it's possible she may have been buried in Pike County. She died September 13, 1857. The other was Joseph Rush, her son, he died in Jan. of 1870.

I am looking for any family members. My grandfather was Oscar Coleman and he married Gertrude Bower in Barry April 27th 1902 at M.E. Parsonage with William M. Hailey, Minister. Witnesseswere Dallas Coleman, Mrs.Margaret Colerie and Mrs. Stephen McCarls. I know my grandparents moved to Alberta, Canada but I am looking for any records of their parents I believe both fathers names were Franklin. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
