FOLLIS Families in Fairfield County, Ohio

My second great-grandparents Peter PROUGH 1808-about 1894 Fairfield County, Ohio to LaGrange County, Indiana to Missouri and Barbara Thurston 1821-about 1905 Wayne County, New York to LaGrange County, Indiana to Oklahoma. Thought to have died in 1905 in Oklahoma but cannot be found in the 1900 census with any of their children. Peter is thought to have died in 1894 on the way to Missouri and buried along the railroad tracks which they were following. They were last found in 1893 LaGrange County, Indiana.

Peter's parents George PROUGH 1781-1808 Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania to Fairfield County, Ohio and Sarah WINDER 1789-1860 Washington County, Maryland to Fairfield County, Ohio. Sarah remarried Nicholas SIDENER. Son Peter immigrated to Indiana with a couple of his SIDENER half-brothers.

George's parents were Johann Peter BRACH 1757-after 1830 Berks County, Pennsylvania to Fairfield County, Ohio and Elisabeth BREININGER probably Pennsylvania to 1823 Fairfield County, Ohio.

Genealogy research is never complete, important details might be missing, and often contains errors, so let me know if your research contradicts mine. My Indiana and Ohio family research comes from conversations with relatives, scrapbooks, library research, online records, visits to courthouses, final resting places on family farms and cemeteries. Families in other states rely mostly on the research of others. Links to other web sites often change then won't work, so if you find broken links, have additional information on any families, corrections, photos, or anything to add to the history of our families, please leave a Comment in my Guest book, join my Follis Families on Facebook page for updates and new discoveries, or send an Email. The Wayback Machine archives most old web pages so copy and paste the broken URL address to find the missing 404 pages that disappeared.
