I was wondering if anyone has any information on a Reuben Mehurin / Mehuren / Mahurin. He was allegedly born in New York state in 1831, and then moved to Ohio where he married a Maria or Mary or Mariah Mead. It looks like he lived in Mahoning and Portage counties, and possibly Tuscarawas County. He had 7 children: Rhoda (1855), Charles (1859), Andrew (1861), Newell (1864), Olive Thompson (1871), Reuben Jr (1872), and Mary Belle (1874).
I haven't been able to find any documentation as to his parents. There are some references to his parents being Hezekiah Mahurin and Chloe Sabin, but they would have been too old at the time of his birth (over 50), so I doubt they are the correct parents. It looks like Reuben moved to Ohio sometime in his teens, and possibly with an Esther Mahurin who I also can't find any information on. It seems that Esther Mahurin is a relative of Reuben's, and would have been the right age to be his mom or an aunt, but I have no documentation. If anyone knows anything, I'd sure appreciate it!
