States: Ohio: Scioto
Census record for John Craighead in 1840 gave location as Wayne Township, Scioto County. Ancestry.com has this index record as Portsmouth, Scioto Co., Ohio. I found a Wayne in Wood and Ashtabula counties but none in Scioto County. John Craighead, born 1799 in Cumberland Co., Pennsylvania was a merchant in later years in Iowa. I’m not sure if he was a merchant while living in Ohio or not; therefore I do not know if the “Wayne” area was urban or rural, even though the census had “Wayne Township”. Does anyone know anything about this location they could share with me? Thank you, Mary
