The 1850 Salem Twp. Shelby co Ohio census has:
Ruth Canaan age 66 b/Pa. with her are, Hanah age 31, b/Oh.,
Lennia(Le_ _na age 15, Mary L. age 6, Eli age 34 farmer b/Oh., Caroline age 27 b/NY, John age 8, Emelin age 4, John
age 6. Did Caroline name two of her sons John?
Also, was this about the time or shortly after this family may have headed for the Wisconsin territory.
I'm looking for more info on John and Hannah Williams Canaan, believe Hannah def/b Ohio.
