Surnames: McNall, Zimmerrman, Moody, Hawk

William McNall born abt 1824 according to the 1850 census.

In a listing of the Old Settlers of DeKalb birth date given as 1819 in future Ashland Co., Ohio.

He married caroline Zimmerman in DeKalb.
Lived in Concord twp, at least for the 1850 census.
Children John, Almira, David, ?

Elizabeth McNall, old enough to be his mother, lived next door with John and Sophia Moody

I ahve seen some property records from 1860 and later, but don't find him in any census.

Daughter Almira married my Gr-gr-grandfather JM Hawk.

Does anyone know where Willaim came from, or what happened to him later?
I have seen a death record indicating that his son David lived in Van Wert, Ohio. This suggested William might have been born in Ireland.( poor handwriting Irel or Ind )

Thanks for your help!
