Crawford Co., Ohio as a preferred first settlement point
From the beginning of my research I have found first indicators that Crawford Co., and especially Bucyrus and its neighborhood had been a center of first settlement of many emigrants from my hometown area. With the great help of lots of volunteers from the Crawford Co. mailing list I was able to establish first links. Thanks to all of you who have supported me in the last years.
After the great success analyzing the cemetery book in Florence Twp., Williams Co., OH I ordered the Crawford Co. cemetery books Vol. 2a and Vol. 3 from the Crawford County Genealogical Society. It was a great source of information and I could find a lot more of emigrants being buried on Crawford Co. cemeteries. Thanks to all the volunteers for their great work they have done.
After a few months of intensive work I have extracted data about 29 emigrants from the cities of Wankheim, Jettenburg, Maehringen, Kusterdingen and Immenhausen and other emigrants from the extended area including Moessingen and Pfullingen giving a total of 76 emigrants and 824 persons in total where I can assume they have died in Crawford Co. or at least are buried in Crawford Co. cemeteries.
