Researching Family who lived in OH, PA, VA and WV
I am researching my family line. My father's families - Wilson, Foutty, Cox and Ruble - all originated (by research so far) in OH, VA, WV, and ?PA. His family was here before the Civil War. Both of his g-grandfathers fought for WV during this war. They settled in Ritchie, Wirt and Wood counties. They have also lived in OH before settling in WV, some born there.
My mother's family - Kowalski and Melewski(?sp) came here in the early 1900's. They settled in Cleveland OH. They arrived from Russia-Poland via Baltimore.
I am also researching my husband's family line. They include his father's line - Bakaitis and Doboschynski(?sp). They originally settled in Freeland, Luzcern County, PA then moved to Cleveland OH. They came seperatly to the U.S. from Lithuania and Poland[b/]. His mother's line - Przybyzewski (Pryber) and Rosicki (Roski) came from Russia-Poland. I am not sure of there ports of arrival. They came seperately and settled first in Fairmont WV[b/] where they were married then moved lastly to Clevleand OH.
