I'm not related.

I assume you mean Mary A. Talor who died in Wayne County, OH in 1912. Her Ohio death certificate indicates her parents were Henry Koons and Ester Ruch ( You can also find Mary's sister Lovine Stetler's 1915 death certificate too. Knowing the mother's maiden name can help a great deal.

Henry and Esther Kuhns appear in the 1880 census of Norton Twp., Summit County, OH. Marya appears with them in the 1870 census of same under the name Koontz (misindexed as Kooritz in Ancestry). The 1860 census of same has the surname as Coon. They appear in the 1850 census of Bloom Twp., Columbia County, PA under the name Koons.

Here is where Henry and Ester are buried:

Here is someone who believes they found Henry's parents:

The Easton Area Public Library is an excellent source for doing genealogical research in Northampton County. It has a wealth of church records, family history, court and other records.
