John Wirt (born 1813 in Pennsylvania) married Elsie Honeywell on 29 May 1834. Elsie was born 1813 in PA. They moved to Portage Co., OH sometime before August 1840. They had at least 2 children. The first was named Westley William Wirt (b. Aug 15, 1840 Portage Co.) and the second was named John Baptist Wirt (born Sep 17, 1843 Portage Co.). Westley William married Ella Bean on 17 Mar 1850 in Portage, OH. Ella was born 17 Mar 1850 and died 8 Jun 1911. Westley William and Ella Bean had 5 children named Silliman Mansfield, Mary, Ida Francis, John Westley and Reasin Andrew Wirt. It is believed that John Baptist Wirt married a woman named Frances Colton. I know nothing about their descendents or Frances' family. Ella Bean was the daughter of Reasin R. Bean (b. Oct 12, 1822, d. Aug 25, 1863) and Frances Newton (Sep 1, 1832, died April 11, 1858). I don't know if they were each born in Portage Co., but they obviously had moved there by the time Ella was born on 17 Mar. 1850. They were married June 5, 1849. Reasin and Frances may have also had a son named Orrin Reasin.
