Surnames: Sinclair, Mishon, Elwood, Mays, Fenner, Lamb, Lewis, Olinger, Canaday, James, Sincler
I'm interested in making contact with others who are descended from the Sinclair families who lived in Highland County, Ohio, in the 1820's and 1830's and 1840's. My line is from John Sinclair b. abt. 1770 d. abt. 1826 and his wife Sarah Mishon b. abt. 1775 d. bef. 1840.

The children of John and Sarah Sinclair that I know of to date were: 1. Sarah Sinclair b. Feb. 14, 1798 in Fayette Co., KY. d. September 05, 1866 in Monroe, Jasper County, Iowa m. Henry Shaw Elwood December 12, 1816 in Ross County, OH. 2. Ann L. Sinclair b. Abt. 1799 in Kentucky d. Bef. May 1822 in Ohio m. December 09, 1817 in Ross County, Ohio to Littleberry Mays, Jr. 3. Mahala Sinclair b. 1800 in Kentucky d. July 20, 1866 in Derry Township, Pike County, Illinois
m. May 23, 1822 in Highland County, Ohio to the same Littleberry Mays, Jr. who married her younger sister, Ann, after Ann's death. 4. John W. Sinclair b. August 29, 1813

There were undoubtedly other children of John and Sarah, according to the 1820 and 1830 census records of Ross and Highland County, Ohio.

Other marriages in Highland County, Ohio, in the 1820's and 1830's, involving other Sinclair individuals were:

Abner Sinclair m. Elizabeth Fenner Aug. 10, 1826
Everet Sinclair m. Edith Lamb Sep. 10, 1833
Huldy Sinclair m. Thomas Lewis Dec. 7, 1826
John P. Sinclair m. Nancy Olinger May 24, 1832
William Sinclair m. Anna Canaday Feb. 21 1839
Maranda Sincler m. George James Feb. 2, 1837

Any information on these people would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks!

I'm afraid I don't quite understand your message here. You said John P. Sinclair is your line, and the person who the marrige records of Highland Co., OH., listed as Everet Sinclair is actually Edward Sinclair and he was a brother of your John P. Sinclair. That I understood.

I do not understand the rest of this tho. You said you would "list my family" and you listed a bunch of names, but I'm not sure who these people are. No dates, no relationships, etc. Then you asked if I know "who there father & mother was". Whose father and mother? Then you say you think the father and mother was James and Rachel??? I do not know of any James or Rachel Sinclair. I'm afraid I just don't get your meaning here. It is just not very clear. Sorry.

I am sorry about that. I think I was listing John P. Sinclair brothers and sister. I had a land record that had there names on when the land was sold. It listed James and Rachel as father & mother. The children was listed in Clinton Co. and Highland Co. Ohio. I was just telling you that it wasn't Everet,it was Edward Sinclair.

No, as I mentioned in the first message in this thread, the children I listed as children of my Sinclair ancestor were the children that I knew of "to date".

Then I listed "Other" marriages in that area that also involved Sinclair individuals. I made no mention of any connection between John P. Sinclair other than to mention the fact that he was married in the same area where my Sinclair ancestors lived. I have no idea if he's related or not.
