I am Nancy Crawford Spallinger.
I am researching the Yants in Allen County and Stark and Tuscarawas Co Ohio
I am linked throught Downing/Beemer
My daughter in law is linked through the Yants in Tuscarawas and her maiden name is Yant.
I am trying to get straight some information.
A source gave me a direct link back to Melchoir Yant, but somehow I think she took a wrong curve along the way.
I have read all the stones at the Rockport and Cairo Cemeteries in Allen County. I have a fairly updated Rockport Cemtery Record here at home that I have put out on the web at several places. There are many of the Yants in these cemeteries.
Somehow I have the line back messed up I think

1. Melchoir Yant b 1707 d 177
2. John Yant b 1755 d 1842 in Tuscarawas Co
Mary Eva Schuster
3.Samuel Yant b 12-27-1782 in Ohio d 10-26-1869
Susannah Runyon
3.Henry Yant b 1784 in Carroll Co Ohi d
Mary Margaret Stoody b 1-31-1798 Washington co Pa
4 Noah B Yant b 4-27-1827 Rose Twp Carroll Co Oh d 9-30-1909 brd Cairo Oh
Drusilla Miller b 4-7-1828 Carroll Co Oh(dau of James MIller and Rachel Knotts
(grandaughter of Isaac Miller and Drusilla Downing
4 Daniel H Yant
m 5-13-1854
Amanda S Pugh

3.Phillip Yant b 1791 d 1874 in Allen County Ohio
3. Michale Yant b 1788 d 1871 in Allen County Ohio
3 John Yant jr
3.Margarete Yant
3 Elizabeth Yant
3 Mary Yant b 1797 in Pa
m9-23-1819 in Tuscarawas Co Ohio
Isaac Beemer
3 Susanne Yant b 3-1-1799
John Stoody
3 Harriet Yant

2.Valentine Yant
2.Phillip Yant
Mary Magdalena Rehrig(dau of John Rehrig)
3 Catherine Yant
3 Frederick Yant
3 John Yant
3 Abraham Yant
3 Henry Yant
3. Daniel Yant
3 Elizabeth Yant
3 Phillip Yant

One of the puzzles I have is where does this John Yant fit in ? This was added in to Henry Yant and Magaret Stoody's line.

John Yant b 1805 in Canton Twp Stark Co Oh died abt 1849
Lydia Jolly b 6-16-1803
Daniel Yant b 1-12-1828 Canton Twp Stark Co Oh d 2-2-1895 Pike Twp Stark Co Oh
Sophia Kinney(dau of Peter Kinnet and Elizabeth May
Peter Kinney Yant
Sarah Elizabeth Yant
William Preston Yant
Cordelia Yant
John Yant
Martha Loemma Yant
Bertha Florence Yant
Ida May Yant

In the above maze of Yants I am a shirt tale cousin on the Downing side and the Beemer side
My daughter in law is a Yant through John Yant (son of Melchoir)
Anyhow.. Does any of this look straight or can you see a curve in it where I went wrong.???
Thanks for looking
Nancy Crawford Spallinger
