Norman Pontius was born in late 1859 or early 1860, as he is three months old in the 1860 census. He is in the household of his Grandfather, Henry Jarrett, in Green twnshp, Summit Co.,OH. His mother is probably Louisa Jarrett, but might be Julia or Rebecca.
On the next page of the census, a nearby farm, lived the family of Frederick Pontius (b.~1809 PA, s/o Nicholas); including his sons, Jefferson and Isaac, one of whom I presume is the father of Norman.
(note: Jefferson m. 1862 to Mary E. Smith, & Isaac m. 1876 to Martha E. Taggert)

In 1870 "Perman" Pontius is age 10, still in the home of Henry Jarrett, although now in Lake twnshp, Stark Co.,OH. As Louisa is still in the household, I suspect she is Norman's mother.

On 5/101877 Norman m. Sarah Kreighbaum (d/o Levi & Sarah). In the 1880 census, they are living in Coventry twnshp, Summit Co., OH. Norman POUNTIUS age 20 b. OH, F b.PA, M b.OH, farming. Sarah is age 22, sons Oliver 3, & Ervin 1.

No 1890 census records survived.

In 1900 Norman, age 45 (?) & Sarah age 44, & children.

In 1910, only Sarah found; she relates that she had 9 live births, and that 7 of the children are then living. These are the children known to me (maybe duplicates, twin, or one born dead?):

Oliver C. 1877-1930
Ervin 1879
William H. 1880
Barbara Ann (aka Lottie) 1883 (our connection)
Hattie E. 188?
Maud 1885
Myrtle 1888
Ralph 1895
Urma ~1897
Vernis 1897

Would appreciate any additional info. on this line.
