Clermont County Ohio Families


When I first started looking for my WOOD ancestors a researcher named Phyllis Gillaspie reached out to me and provided me with a wealth of information. It turned out that Phyllis' MANNING family and my WOOD family intermarried and founded Manning Station (or Wood-Manning) in Clermont Co. Ohio around 1800. These families eventually spread westward to Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and other states. Phyllis has since passed but in 1997 she provided me with 159 pages of family group sheets (FGSs) from her genealogy research for MANNING and WOOD pioneer families including their descendants and a few neighbors. Some of this data has already been incorporated into my database on this website. Unfortunately, there was too much data in these FGSs for me to enter, especially since many of these families are unrelated to me.

After several years of trying, I have finally been able to reliably scan and perform optical character recognition (OCR) on these records and I have saved them in a searchable PDF format. While I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the OCR, I tried to review them closely. I have seen a few dates that did not make sense and I have checked those against the original forms. (There are several entries where the year is shown as "0194" and that is what is on the FGS.) I also have seen more than one entry where the date was 19xx but should be 18xx. These are also faithful to the paper copies. If you see a date that does not fit and you wish to verify it, feel free to contact me.

Note that while this material is searchable, I recommend that you download the PDF file in order to search it as a Google Search may not return complete results.

I also cannot verify the accuracy of the information contained in the FGSs because I did not compile the information myself. There are numerous footnotes and while I trust Phyllis' research, as always you should verify and document any information new to you for yourself.

I have attempted to remove pages that contain information on persons born in 1940 or later under the assumption they could still be alive. (Data from 1940 is already be available on census and many other records.) If you see a surname below and cannot locate that name on a page it could be because I removed that page. Feel free to contact me for more information if necessary or to report any errors.

For the present, I have placed these family group sheets in a single large PDF that can be downloaded and then printed or searched. All I ask is that if you use the information please both verify it and give credit to the source.
