Found death index for Lawrence Co.,Oh. An Andrew WAMER age 8 and a Lawrence WAMER age 5,who both died 1896 John's Creek. Cannot find any WAMER families in records in that area. Is it possible the name is WARNER? We have found the names WAMER and WARNER to be often mixed up in records,as 100 years+ handwritting can be difficult to read. We are researching the name WAMER in OHIO and we have found the name as far back as the 1840s from Pa to Athens,Oh. It seems our line comes from Pa.,as we have also found the name WAMER as far back as the Rev. War in Pa. Other spellings also include Weimer/Wemer/Weymer/Wemmer/Werner and of course WARNER. Can anyone verify this death record to include the name WAMER and not WARNER,as my GGrandfather was often indexed under WARNER but the name was clearly spelled WAMER. Thanks for your time. S.Wamer
