Note: The dates for "Left Washington Co PA" are the Deed dates in Jefferson Co Ohio, so the person/family could have actually left the county years earlier and not had their Ohio deed Recorded for some time.

No other information is known except the names listed and the Deed dates.  If you know other details about these persons (date of birth, death, place of origination before Washington County PA, who they married/when/where, please send that to me so I can include the information. PLEASE PUT THE PAGE URL IN YOUR EMAIL so I don't have to guess or search for your family's name. The columns "Entered Washington PA (date)," "From," and "Comments" will ALL be web-user submissions; the contributor will be listed under comments.
