I am hoping that I may be able to find some info concerning my great-great-grandparents. I have pursued them for almost a decade with little luck! I am certain that at least some of the answers lay in Lorain Co.! I know that the families originally came from New York and Maine. George Washington Porter (no dates) and his wife Martha Wallace (no dates) were mar. in Elyria, Lorain Co OH, Apr. 30, 1862. I have obtained a copy of their marriage license but unfortunately there was no additional family info on the license. In the spring of that year, 1862, they moved to Hancock Co., IL, where they resided for approx. 16 yrs. George W. was an apparent scoundrel and Martha divorced him in 1891, in McDonough County IL. The grounds were desertion, adultery, fraud, and possible bigamy!!! They had the following children: George Grant PORTER and Reuben PORTER.

I am trying to find info on where my Great grandparents came from in Germany. His name was Jonas (Johanas) Kothe. He was born 17 October 1846 in Germany. He was in the Franco-Prussian War and immigrated to US in 1871 or 72. He bought a farm in Kipton, Ohio and died there in 1911. He is buried in the Kipton cemetery along with my Great Grandmother Katherina Bechtel (Kothe). She was born 16 February 1849 in Germany and died in Kipton in 1929. They may have come over on the same ship. I wrote to the German military about his war records, but was informed they were destroyed in a Feb.1945 bombing of Berlin. The 1900 Lorain County (Camden Township) census lists his immigration as 1871 and hers as 72. One of these could be an error. The census shows he was naturalized - it's blank under hers. Their son, John, inherited their farm and he died in 1979 or 80.
