According to an index listing for the 1840 federal census on the Ross County, Ohio Genweb site, there was an Abraham Sly who was the head of a household in Paint Township. I have not been able to obtain the details from the 1840 census, but I would guesstimate that, as head of the household, this Abraham was at least 21 years old, but probably younger than 70, and so probably born between 1770 and 1819. If he was born before about 1795, he was probably NOT born in Ohio but would have possible migrated to Ross County from one of the Eastern states.
Does anyone have any information about this Abraham Sly? If so, please share by posting here, or by contacting me directly at email@example.com.
