Roof Family Genealogy Forum
Jonas Roof, as identified in the obituary of his sister, Catherine Roof Pelsor (D. 1872), owned a mill on the Mad River in Ohio. There is a Jonas Roof listed in the 1840 Census of Montgomery Co, OH; 1830 in Miami Co, OH. The other Roofs in these counties seem to have their roots in Westmoreland Co, PA. There is more than 1 Jonas Roof who orginates there - so I assume there is a family connection. The name is German and is spelled Roof, Ruff, Ruhf, and several other variations. Any help would be appreciated!
