Hello, I hope this may help. I notice you are crossing some of the information from other families into your basic research notes. Until you have established a link to the record you are using to build from, your research will not produce results. I would find the Virginia connection first, then try to make the Pennsylvania connection.

(A) The Montgomery,County Map dated 1851 shows Daniel Reasorís farm on Section (1) to be in the hand of his heirs at the time of this publishing, and his son Henry lived on the farm just east. And just south was a Daniel Kinsey. And Jacob Wolf between them. This land became the Solders Home in Dayton for the Civil War Vets by the time the 1869 Map was published. Section (1) was originally purchased from the government by Henry Kinsey on May 11, 1804. So by 1867 they had moved. If you like to read about the farm and how Henry Kinsyís wife was kidnap by indians when she was seven. And the old log house Jacob Wolf had lived in became the first headquaters for the Solders Home and the large red barn adjacent furnished the home its first dinning room. Further reading can be found in the History of City of Dayton and Montgomery County Ohio by Drury 1909. It should be also noted that the very first house of worship built by the United States Government was built here.

(B)The record below come from; A Genealogical Index of Miami Valley Pioneers, Ohio.
