WELK Research..Seeking long-lost "cousins"

This is my Grandmother's line...Father William Frederic Welk, son of Henry and Louisa from Germany. William was born in Iowa in 1848 and moved with his family sometime before he married, to Ashland, Ohio.
His wife was Mary Elizabeth Kreisher, daughter of Charles Kreisher from Germany. Would like to find living relatives from this side of the family. Grandmother's sisters: Rena married Will Richards, Carrie married James Corlett,and there were three boys: Isaac, Charles, and
Jesse.

Looking for new Meador researchers

Our Meador line goes back to Joel and Susannah (Clark). Joel was born 1725 in Virginia, settling his family on Indian Run Creek in the Bedford/Franklin area. Our direct ancestor is his first son, Jesse, born 1750. Some of Joel's children moved on to the connecting counties of Allen in Ky and Sunmer/Macon in Tenn. My husband's grandfather Henry Steven Meador moved the family to Florida between 1925 and 1930.

Have a LOT of research, back to England, and up to the present. Also have a myfamily.com website called Meadortrails, where there is history, trees, and lots of pictures for those who are researching this family. Ask for an invitation.

Wenzel Families

My grandmother was a Wenzel, whose father was Caspar J Wenzel. He came to America in 1850 as a 6 month old baby with his parents from
Germany. They settled in Geauga County, Ohio. Grandmother had 3 sisters and a brother: Arline (married Howard Cowles), Lucille, Florence and Leroy. I would love to find some of the children or grandchildren of these. Anyone with information, please contact me.

Searching for Daniels cousins

Our Daniels line came from England both from Robert and William Daniell. From Robert's line Abagail married Peletiah Daniels from William's line..moved to Connecticut, and my great-great Grandfather
Selah Daniels, Sr and his father, Reuben Daniels, took their families to Ohio and settled in Geauga County, on Lake Erie.
I would like to find existing cousins from the family of Max Daniels
and his siblings, whose father was Selah Daniels, Jr. Surnames here include: Novak (Joe), Buchner (Fred), Bartlett (Stanley), and the children of Gerald, Max Carrington, and Elton Daniels. I moved to Florida at age 13 and have lost track of most of these. Any help would be appreciated.

Looking for Dysert families, both past and present

My mother was a Dysert stemming from Johnstown, Pennsylvania,
and later from Northeastern Ohio, where I was born. (Geauga County)
Our ancestor's go back to William Dysert, born in 1812 in Adams County,Pennsylvania, and married to Cordelia Sharretts. From here back we are at a brick wall, not able to find William's parents.
My great-grandfather William John Dysert moved the family to Ohio
around 1907-8 in order to work on the railroad with his brother George. (George was later killed in a railroad accident). The family has pretty much stayed in this area in and around east Cleveland.
