Note H00347 Index
In Arrasmith book it states he married 3 sisters, Polly Longnecker, Susanna Longnecker and Nancy Longnecker. I know he married Polly first on 3-16-1816. The book states he married Nancy next on 5-6-1819, but she died on 6-21-1862, and Susanna died before her 10-21-1849. So I think he married Susanna second and the date for him and Nancy is actually his and Susanna's marriage date. This is also validated by the dates listed for his and Susanna's children.
Thought this might be my William A's father, but he had a William Reeder Arrasmith born on 1837 and died the year my g-g-grandfather was born? in 1840. Maybe they had another son right after and named him after the son that died?
On October 16-1850, William Arrasmith, aged 58 years, a resident of Washington Township, Preble County, Ohio appeared before a Justice of the Peace declaring that he was a private in the company commanded by Captain Combs in Colonel Johnson's regiment of calvary, a mounted volunteer (of

He moved somewhere in Indiana between 1828 and 1833, but not to Vermillion County until 1851.

Alva was a trustee of the Eugene Methodist Church and Alexander was a life long member.

Note H00354 Index
Not sure where this note came from - "Died on trip to Oregon Territory before reaching Council Bluff - they show date as 1864." (Think from Arrasmith book - but may not be correct based on the following).
Genforum note on 3/3/99 from Carol Wildman (firstname.lastname@example.org) states that when William died in 1862 (Civil War??) she went west from Chillicothe Missouri with 11 children on the wagon train of 1864. It states she homesteaded in Washington state along with two of her brothers.
