Hi all, I'm new to the SEARLES name but not that far removed. My great grandmother was according to her marriage Essa M. SEARLES b. March 1857 in Ohio. She was married to Salathiel DERROW in Van Wert County Ohio 1874. They were according to family lore cousins maybe even first and since this is not something you would brag about I tend to believe it. They were still living in Van Wert county in 1900 with 6 kids one was my grandfather Charles Franklin DERROW b. Aug 1880. On the census record her name is blurry but definetly longer than Essa something like this EsAmarilets ?? Not sure. Any help on this family GREATLY appreciated my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!!
