Ron- I think we may be on to something! I just posted an answer to your reply to helen about Martha Campbel, then checked your forum history and found this. Martha Nolan was a sister of my ggrandmother, Mellie Noland Wise. She was the oldest daughter of Philip Noland (son of Wesley and Martha)and was born on April 12,1849 at Montra in Shelby County, Ohio. She married William Raymond in Troy, Ohio on August 11,1887. William was also "deaf and dumb". I too have found Martha in the census as a resident of the Ohio school for the deaf. Martha was sent there to school and her sister Jennie went with her for company and to also learn to sign to teach other family members. Jennie raised my grandmother and my own mother often spoke of how Jennie would "sign" as she talked because she had learned in order to help Martha. I have several pictures of Martha (as wellas other family members) It is obvious that we are both working on the same family- I am excited to hear from you and trade info. Susan (Tobi) Graham
