ROSS, STEMEN, DAVIDSON, LAMAN, BLOSSER
Posted by: Dave Koester Date: September 29, 2000 at 15:09:32
In Reply to: Re: Surnames - Allen County Ohio by Shari Morris of 592

My husband's family also includes the ROSS, STEMEN, DAVIDSON, LAMAN, BLOSSER and EMNISINGER lines. I tried to get to the page you listed for your genealogy but was unable to connect to it. Please email me and inform me how to correctly get to your genealogy pages. I would be glad to help you in any way I can. I live only 15 miles from Lima.

With that many surnames being the same, I am very excited to see if we really do relate. I am especially interested in the Laman and Davidson names - since those are the names of my grandparents, both of whom lived in Lima. My mother, Margaret Aileen Davidson b: February 17, 1911 in Lima, Ohio d: July 26, 1990 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania also grew up in Lima. Below I copied a descendency of Joseph Laman which covers my relationship to the Laman, Davidson and Stemen lines. My ROSS connection comes through the marriage of Joshua Davidson, b. June 22, 1813, d. February 06, 1866 who married Catherine Ross, b. November 08, 1811, d. August 19, 1902. They were original land grant owners and Davidson Road is named after them in Amanda Township. The BLOSSER and ENSMINGER lines come in much, much earlier with our earliest known LAMAN being married to a Catherine Ensminger. The BLOSSER line came in through the marriage of Mary "Polly" Blosser to Peter Stemen, Jr.

I suspect that you have all this data, but I am most anxious to hear how your husband and I relate. I have many first cousins and second cousins that I have never known. I'll look forward to hearing from you Shari.
