I am looking for information on my GGG Grandfather Henry Greider and his wife Elizabeth Howenstine.  I only recently learned of their connection to Noble County.  Had no idea where they were born, but probate records from Noble County told me about Elizabeth's death. Now I am looking for any information about Elizabeth's husband (Henry Greider's) origins, their settlement in Noble, and about Henry's parents who I believe would have been Jacob Greider (born 1769) and his wife Anne Bauer.

Potter-Creigh families

I have noticed the bullitin board gets good results, so I am going to inquire after my Noble County brick walls.  Samuel A Creigh husband of Lydia, father of Sarah Jane Creigh who married Edmond Potter.  Lydia died in 1855 she is buried in South Milford, where did Samuel go after Lydia's death?  Samuel and Lydia moved to Wayne Township from Richland County, Ohio about 1844 does anyone have anymore information on this family?  Henry Potter Edmond's father wife Azuba? also moved from Richland County, Ohio. Edmond's biography states he was born in Onondaga, NY.  I can't find anything more about this family either.  I know Henry died in the early 1860's.  I don't know where he and Azuba are buried.  I think I found Henry living in Haw Patch on the 1860 census name misspelled as Henry Patten. Could he be buried somewhere over there in Lagrange County?  Anyone have any more information on this Potter family?
