I looked at all four volumes of Ross County families and found nothing. This includes Bicentennial edition . I did look in 1850 Ross county Census and found the following: In Concord Township:
Samuel Wilgus age 63, farmer from Pa.
Catherine age 45
Nancy age 12
Samuel L. age 8 and a Parson Carmean age 23, laborer living in the same household
In 1860 Census , Concord only Catherine , Nancy and Samuel are listed . Samuel is listed as 16 yrs old. It appears he has lost years , was 8 in 1850 and now is 16 , ten years later.
In Ross County marriage records Samuel J. Wilgas married Catherine Carmean August 6, 1837.
Nancy A. Wilgus married David W. Keister Dec 17,1861.
In the Concord Township Cemetery Inscription book it lists the following :
In Day Cemeyery Samuel J. Wilgas died Nov 13,1837 at 76 yrs5mos28das.
NOTE: it appears that death date was read or recorded wrong at time of Compilation. Samuel was still alive in 1850 Census. Based on discription of markers in Day Cemetery it would have ben easy to have misread the markers. They had to be dug up, cleanup and some were found leaning against trees. Cemetery for all legal purposes is abandoned.
Hope this helps. Keep the family alive by remembering those who are gone.
