Help! My g g grandfather, his wife & son lived in Seneca County, Ohio around 1860. His name was Lewis Colombur (But the family spelled their surname in various ways.) His wife's name was Mary Elvira Frink (Daughter of Theodore M. Frink of Big Spring Township)
I have volumes of information about the Frinks, all the way back to 1631, BUT I have not had any luck finding information about the Colomburs. Lewis served in the 101st Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Company K, during the Civil War. He died in the battle of Chickamauga. The Civil War Stone in the Kansas, Ohio Cemetery lists him as "Lewis Cullumber". I have some of his letters to his wife, Mary, in which he refers to his mother but no mention of her name. The letters were addressed to "Seneca County" and to "Kansas Village", Ohio. I do not know for sure where Lewis was born, but his Company Descriptive Book says he was born in Seneca County, Ohio. He had a brother who is almost as elusive as Lewis. The brother's name was William Collumber (his spelling) who had a wife named Sara and perhaps a son named Edy.They had a return address of New Dover on a letter to Lewis's wife, Mary.
Since I live in Denver, Colorado and am on full-time oxygen, my days of doing extensive research are gone, so I certainly will appreciate it if somebody can provide any information, or tell me for sure where I can find it.
I will be most happy to share whatever information I have about Lewis Colombur's descendents and Mary Elvira Frink's ancestors and/or descendents.
