I am also descended from Jonathan Neff who was in Hamilton Township in the
1830 census so maybe a dual rep. Karen

Hi Anthony,

I'm not sure if I meet the First Families of Jackson Co., I have these names
in my line of family tree: Fitzpatrick, Boring and Eby ( I think most of the
Eby where in Vinton Co. ?). Please let me know if these are some of the
names your looking for?


Thank you,

Fawn
