Searching for parents of William McCollum b. ca 1830 in OH. I believe he is the son of Daniel and Jane Thatcher McCollum, but have no proof. Daniel moved to Tuscarawas from Milton Twp. Trumbull Co. In 1850 census, Salem Twp., William listed as 21, farmer, living with family, and real estate worth $300. In 1860, Daniel is in Iowa without William. Can't find Wm in 1860, but in 1870 census for Mill Twp. he is a cabinet maker, married to Caroline and has children: Ester, Lewis,Thomas and James. In 1880, he is in Urichsville and is an Undertaker with two more children, Edward and Caroline. In 1900, Caroline is a widow living with son Edward. Does anyone know if this William is the son of Daniel and Jane McCollum. Note the different name spelling on the various census years.
Thank you. Ralph McCollum
