States: Ohio: Stark
I am researching the names Labus and Baxter in the Stark county area of Minerva,OH. I believe the families to have been from this area,yet Minerva is also part of Carroll and Columbiana counties. some of my information indicates Carroll county, yet, nothing fits. I'm looking for any info on these names prior to 1888 when my grandfather Fred Labus was born up thru 1951 when I was born and how he may have gotten together with my grand mother Myrtle Baxter,who was apparently his second wife. However, I do not know if my grand father was her first husband or not.I am told that my grandfather was raised by an uncle(Cecil or Jessie)because his father died at an early age and he never told his children anything about who their grandparents were, or where the family originated. Any help would be greatly appreciated even if it's a passing cross-reference.
