Himes Family Genealogy Forum
Nancy Himes may well be the one mentioned in the final record of an involved court case in Montgomery Co., OH, in 1820. The case involved 100 acres purchased by Nancy's father the late John Himes in 1808 from a Levi Dunn of Virginia. It mentions Nancy's siblings as George, Martin, Francis,Thomas and Rachel, all minors, and Samuel, Mary (married to Henry Dickensheets), Elizabeth, and perhaps Catherine. The record of the case (a LONG and complicated one) is in the Montgomery county, Ohio, Common Pleas Civil Records, vol. D-1, pages 715-725. March term, 1820.
John Himes died intestate in 1814. The administration record doesn't mention heirs as such. Samuel, presumably the son mentioned above was administrator.
The case is also mentioned in "Montgomery County, Ohio Common Pleas Law Record, 1803-1849," by Rose Shilt and Audrey Gilbert, Publ. in Dayton. If you live in OH, it may be in your local public library. Also "Early Settlers of Montgomery County, Ohio." by Shirley Keller Mikesell (Heritage books, Inc) mentions John Himes's estate record. I hope this is helpful. It may give you something to work on.
I am descended from Mary and her husband Henry Dickensheets and used these records to prove they and John Himes were resident in OH before 1820 for First Families of Ohio.
