This is not my line, but in the Wood County History book, published 1897, there is a bio on A. L. Muir. John Muir, grandfather of A. L. married Mary Prentiss and had John Muir, Jr. (and 6 others). John Muir, Jr., married Catharine C. Pember, daughter of Carlisle Pember. The portion as pertains to Carlisle and family reads thus: "He (John Jr) married Miss Catharine C. Pember, a member of the old pioneer family for whom Pemberville was named. Her father, Carlisle Pember, was a native of Pennsylvania and came in 1832 to Wood county, where he located on the "Dutch Fields" at the forks of the Portage river, now Pemberville, and erected sawmills and gristmills. He married Elizabeth Radabaugh (this is the way it is spelled in the book) and reared a family of four children." John Jr. and Catharine were still alive when the book was published. They had 7 chlidren: Elizabeth, the wife of James H. Muir; John, a guard in the penitentiary at Columbus; Robert, a collector at Toledo; Mary, the wife of Frank Cook of Chicago; A. L. (the person the bio is on); Charles, a farmer in Webster township and James P. the assistant superintendent of schools of Pemberville.
