Pg 206 Portage, Palmyra 1850 OH Census
GANO, David age 75 male farmer born what appears to say New Jersey land value 1400 cannot read or write
GANO, Elizabeth age 68 born NJ cannot read or write
There is a David Gano buried at Whippoorwill Cemetery in Palmyra Twp Row 8 who died 28 Dec 1859 aged 85 yrs. a Veteran of the War of 1812
There is also a mention on pg 402 of The Portage Heritage A history of an Ohio County 1807-1957 that states:
David Gano, who came from Virginia in 1807, was also a little out of the ordinary. He gained fame as a bear trapper and wolf killer. If anyone aspersed the name of Virginia in his presence, he was ready to fight and on one occasion took on a dozen men in defense of the Old Dominion.
There are other Gano's in the area.
Hope this helped.
