I am helping my friend do some NUMBERS family research since she doesn't have access to the internet. Her Grandfather was Joseph Reno Numbers, M.D., who was born in 1864 in Bloominggrove, Morrow Co, OH. He was supposed to have had Pres. Warren Harding as a playmate. Joseph's father was Esau Numbers born 1816 in PA, died 1898 in Idaho. After living in Ohio, they moved to Paloa, Miami Co, Kansas, where I believe Simon A. Numbers also lived. We have not received the information from Paloa yet, but understand that Simon was a Dr. also.
Esau is listed in the 1860 and 1870 census as being born in PA, but in the 1880 census all I could find was an Esau born in 1816 in Ohio and living in Indiana, without the right family group for our Esau. Can't seem to find the right Esau in the 1880 census.
Would like to correspond with anyone that knows about this family.
