Williams Co Ohio 1820 history

Postby marciacon54 » Wed Sep 26, 2007 2:33 am

Mary Eliz Daily obits say she was born in the far northwest corner of OH in Williams Co in 1819 or 1821. Williams Co was not created from Darke Co until 1820 and was evidently associated with Wood Co. She then married John Byers in 1835, at either age 14 or 16 in Medina Co. Can anyone tell me of a disaster, disease or event which might have spurred this unusual movement from far northwestern OH back east to Medina Co OH to get married? These families may have been Quaker. Perhaps there was a Quaker movement for some reason?
