Williams Co, OH Common Pleas Gleanings

By Pamela Pattison Lash

I found the following while pursuing more info on divorces and thought I'd post it:

Williams County Common Pleas Court, Journal 15 p113 – Charles L Duroy v Joseph W Back, executor of will of Curtis Cogswell, deceased, 22 Nov 1889

Others involved in this action were:
Frederick Cogswell, minor
Mary Cogswell, minor
Jane Lambright
Eliza Morrison
Joel Cogswell

The entry discussed Erie Cogswell and Laura J, his wife paid money to Jacob Zuver for land from this estate.

Hi Pamela, We have conversed in the past. I am still looking for the parents & siblings of Joseph Dixon/Dickson born feb 1 1813 Phila, pa. died jan 28, 1892 Hicksville, Defiance, Ohio. Had dau lydia ann in lafayette (now pulaski) ohio, than had robert stewart 1840 in COLUMBIANA co, mary, david Perky 1848 & john A. july 22, 1851 (never found john after 1870.) (last 3 kids born in wms co ohio I think).ohio. Joseph married susan Perkey dau of David & Mary Sense. Susan was alive in 1860, but not in 1870 don't know where or when she died.. In 1850, joseph & family were in superior, wms co, ohio 1860 otsego steuben, ohio 1870 joseph alone st joseph twp wms co ohio. 1880 until death hicksville. 1 partial obit in hicksville paper had no info in it, however maybe he had another obit as this one just said his funeral was postponed waiting for family to arrive... he is buried in old forest home cem in hicksville. I traveled there from az. to find him. What would be the cost to find josephs family? With son roberts middle name being stewart, i thought maybe josephs wife? had that surname.. just a thought.. I have researched this till I am nearly blue in the face! Thanks so much Carol
