Peter d 27 Dec 1903 in Pleasant Township, probably in Holgate. He was a private in Co. D, 124th OVI and was buried in Pleasant Township Cemetery on Co. Rd. 16 near New Bavaria.
His daughter, Susan, married David L. DAMON on 11 Apr 1895. The only census I can find them in is in 1900 Pleasant, Henry, OH:
head, David DAMON, 41, b Aug 1858, md 5 yrs, OH MA NY, day laborer
wife, Susan, 21, b Jul 1878, 2 chn, 2 living, OH OH OH
dau, Caroline, 4, b Mar 1895, OH
son, Henry A., 1, b Nov 1898, OH
Peter's son, Joseph, married Katie SIMMONS on 28 Jan 1892 in Napoleon and he must have died 1896-1900. In the 1900 Napoleon census, Katie is a widow, living with her brother:
head, Charles SIMMONS, 23, b Jul 1876, OH NY OH, teamster
sister, Katie FOLK, 30, b Mar 1870, widow, 3 chn, 1 living, OH OH OH
nephew, Phares FOLK, 2, b Sep 1897, OH OH OH
brother, Adolphus SIMMONS, 26, b May 1874, OH NY OH, laborer
and a boarder, can't read his name but not Simmons or Folk.
On 12 Sep 1918, Julian Phares FOLK registered for the WWI draft in Tiffin, Seneca, OH. He said he was born 11 Sep 1897, lived at 20 Prospect St., Tiffin, was a taxi driver for the ?Empire Taxi Co. and his nearest relative was
?Corinne Agnes Folk, same address.
On 18 May 1909, Catherine FOLK married John A. CRAMPTON in Seneca Co. OH. The online marriage record is incomplete. He was 37, she 39; her birthplace was Michigan; she was a widow; his father was Joshua Crampton, her father was George W. Simmons and her mmn was Margaret ROLLER.
The Cramptons are in the 1910 Tiffin census and some of the info doesn't add up.
head, John, 38, M2, md 2 yrs, OH OH OH, teamster
wife, Catherine, 40, M2, 3 chn, 1 living, MI NY OH
son, Phares, 14, OH OH MI
dau, Eva, 12, OH OH MI
son, Calvin, 9, OH OH MI
dau, Helen, 8, OH OH MI
dau, Margaret, 1/12, OH OH MI
We know that Phares was Catherine's son and Margaret must have been her daughter, too. Perhaps the other children were John's and his wife was born in Michigan, too! Either that or Catherine mis-understood that ALL of her living children should be enumerated, not just the child/ren from her current marriage.
By 1930, John and Catherine had 2 more children. John E. b 1915, d 1918 and George W. b ca 1922.
In the 1930 Tiffin census, Phares and Carine/Corine had 4 children; Kenneth then 11, Robert 6, Eugene 4 and Mary 2. There is a Kenneth in the SSDI who d 5 Jul 2005 in Tiffin that matches age-wise.
