I'm seeking help with my brick wall of Raleigh Molohan. I have listed all of the information that I can find on him. I have no information on him before 1798 and after 1806. The marriage to Sabina Schoonover is a conjecture and not proven. The family, less Raleigh is found in Fairfield and Franklin County Ohio as early as 1808. I conjecture that Raleigh either died prior to the family's departure for Ohio, on the way, or soon after arrival in Ohio. There are no identified death records. I have not been able to locate any land ownership records in Virginia or Ohio. Can anyone provide any suggestions on records that I might research to tear down this brick wall. Who were Raleigh's parents? Where did he come from prior to Hampshire County? Was Sabina his wife? Where did he die?
Raleigh Molohan died after 1806. Another name for Raleigh was Rawleigh Mollohan.
