I am looking for anyone researching Samuel Gamble and Susanna Heavilin. Samuel was born about 1824 in Washington County, Pa. Susanna was born in Harrison County, Ohio in 1828. They married in Harrison County in 1847.

Their children are:
Stephen H. (marries Mary Etta Bishop)
William M. (marries Alice Harriett Bishop)
Annie (marries Joe Epperson)
Samuel H. (marries Viola Jones)
Wilson George

Sometime in the 1870's, they leave Ohio. In the 1880 census, Susanna appears in Kansas. Her two oldest children, Lucy and John, have remained in Ohio. Samuel is assumed to have died between 1870 and 1880, but I haven't been able to find out when or where. I have a family group sheet listing Susanna as dying June 21, 1883 in Bates County, Missouri. I am trying to fill in the details of their move from Ohio to Kansas to Missouri. Does anyone have any information that might help me?

Also, the family group sheet found in the Carroll County Ohio Gen. Soc. was prepared by Kent R. Wells, grandson of Samuel (son of Samuel/Susanna). I have been unable to find him to compare notes. Does anyone know how to get ahold of him?

Please contact me if you want to share information or can help me.
