Grave marker says she died in 1871, but later court records prove she died in 1874. Middle initial is from official death record. Her birth was calculated from her age at death as recorded on her marker: 90y 3m 28d. The official death record records her age as 90y 3m 23d. Date of marriage is from a transcribed Bible record in Greenville Public Library, Greenville, OH. The Bible apparently came down in her youngest son's family.

They were the parents of the following children: JOSEPH, WILLIAM, JEREMIAH, NICHOLAS, DIADAMA, JEPTHA, LEWIS, REBECCA, and NEWBERRY Jr. Nothing is known of Lewis. My personal line is marked with:*

In the Greenlawn Cemtery (old section called "Black Swamp"), Versailles, OH,
there is a grave marker "William H. York s/o Jacob A. & R. d. 4-11-1853 age 4y
10m 2d" as read by Short & Bowers.  "Jacob A. & R." probably refers to
Jacob A. Burns & Rosetta York.  There is no Jacob -York- among the Darke
Co. families. Could this grave be that of an illegitimate son of
Rosetta.  Or was the date of death unclear and this child died in 1863
at age 4???  I am unable to locate a marriage record for this couple in
Darke Co. records.  Rosetta was living with her father William in 1850
census and the first known child of the couple was Nicholas, born abt
1854.

Jeremiah YORK

           Born -  7 Apr 1809 Preble Co., OH
           Died - 27 Jan 1862 Wayne Twp, Darke Co., OH
           Bur. - Greenlawn Cem, Darke Co., OH
1830 CENSUS, Darke Co., OH: Jeremiah-20/30, female-15/20.

     Davidson-18, F.M. Earhart-5.
Most York genealogists previously claimed that Jeremiah was born at
Wrightsborough in present-day McDuffie Co., GA.  However, Jeremiah's family
probably moved to Ohio before March 1808, thus placing Jeremiah's birth in
Ohio (most likely Preble Co.).  In the 1850 census, Jeremiah's birthplace was
given as Ohio; in the 1860 census it was, unexplainably, said to be Maryland.

Case #1915, Probate Court, Darke Co., OH, concerned minor heirs of Jeremiah,
to wit, Richard, Rachel, and William York.  N.E. York, guardian.  This packet
does not mention the other two heirs (Francis Earhart and Fananaus? Hogan) of
Jeremiah's estate packet.  The Earhart child was buried in Jeremiah's plot,
but what happened to the other child is unknown, presumed dead by the time this
case was settled.  Neither the Earhart nor the Hogan child was mentioned in
their grandfather Newberry York's will of 1862.

Mary's date of birth is uncertain.  The date used in this record is from
June York's information and also from Mary's descendant Debbie Wilson.  Mary's
grave marker shows that she died 8-9-1894 at age 63y 7m 17d or 12-23-1830.
However, official Darke Co. death records (extracted by Jac Baker in his 1988
Death Records of Darke Co., Ohio, 1867-1908, Wayne Twp,, p 9, AND by notarized
letter from the court (in the possession of Debbie Wilson) show Mary's death on
8-9-1894 at age 63y 5m 13d or 2-21-1831.

Benjamin & Lydia are said to have moved to Illinois after 1860.  They could not
be located for the final settlement of Newberry York's estate following his
widow's death in 1874.  This is probably the Benjamin Mendenhall listed as
serving in Co. F, 152nd OVI.

Nancy does not appear as an heir of Jeremiah on the receipt signed by N.E.
York which lists Jeremiah's minor heirs.  The receipt was signed in October
1863.  Short & Bowers report Nancy's dates a 1854-1864, but Nancy must have
died before 1863.  Could her stone have been misread?  1864 for 1861?  An
attempt to re-read the stone in July 1995 was unsuccessful.  The number in
question is at the edge of the stone which is heavily lichen-encrusted and
broken.
