My New Year's Wish is that someone on the Darke County page will help me fill in some blanks for some
ancestors who at one time lived in Darke County.
My great-grandfather, Abraham NESBITT (Nisbit/Nesbit) married Elanor GILBERT in Darke County in 1847
(Darke County Marriages, Book 3/Page 134).  I find them in the 1850 Darke County/Brown Township Census
along with two children - William I (age 3) and Mary E. (age 2).
Abraham NESBITT moved to Auglaize County by 1860 and to Van Wert County around 1890.  Elanor
GILBERT is not found in the 1860 census so I am assuming that she died some time between 1850 and 1860. 
Abraham NESBITT married two times after his marriage to Elanor GILBERT.  He married Mary Preston in
Auglaize County and after her death, he married someone named Susannah.
Any information that someone has to share about this family would be much appreciated.
