In Calhoun County I found within my ancestors 2nd Marriage Record a witness by the name of Jeremiah Walling.

My ancestor was Zachariah Thomas b.1791/NY who married a 2nd time in June of 1840 at Tekonsha, Calhoun County, MI to Mary Robbins. Jeremiah Walling and Zebina Sanders were the witnesses to this marriage.

In researching on Jeremiah Walling, in 1830, I find him living at Mentz, Cuyahoga County, NY in the same county as my Zachariah Thomas, also living at Cuyahoga County NY in 1830.

Jeremiah Walling, we are thinking is the same one as in Calhoun County, MI and who was a witness for Zach Thomas' 2nd marriag.

In 1830 Mentz, Cuyahoga Co, NY Jeremiah Walling was HOH and in his home were the following:
4 Males 20-30 (Born 1800-1810)
1 Male 50-60 (Born 1770-1780)
1 Female 15-20 (Born 1810-1815)
1 Female 50-60 (Born 1770-1780)

Might the Walling families of Calhoun County, MI be children or related to this Jeremiah Walling? Thinking in some fashion he may be related to our Zachariah Thomas who was born at Whitehall,NY in 1791.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
