Bloody Bridge Easters

Dear Terry,

My wife is an Easter descendant.

The James Ayres Easter you mention above is a man of some repute in the local history. James married Harriet Maria Copas in Adams Co, OH, April 12, 1827.

As noted in "A History of Adams County, Ohio from its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time including Character Sketches of the Prominent Persons Identified with the First Century of the County's Growth and Containing Numerous Engravings and Illustrations" by Nelson W. Evans and Emmons B. Stivers, published in West Union, Ohio by E.B. Stivers (1900) at p. 481:

Tiffin Township

"Bloody Bridge." In 1876 the present wooden bridge over Ohio Brush Creek at Satterfield's on the Rome pike was erected,
and its completion was celebrated with a picnic and dance in the new structure, which then was known as the Forge Dam
bridge. During the day Simon Osman and his two sons, who resided near by, and James Easter and his son, also residents of the vicinity, between whose families there had been ill feeling for years, got into a fight in which Simon Osman was stabbed to death by James Easter and he was injured for life by one of Osman's sons. John Easter, the son, was severely stabbed by one of the Osman boys. There was so much blood spilled in and about this bridge in this conflict between the Osmans and the Easters on that September day that it has ever since been known as "bloody bridge."

I have more information on the ancestry and family of James Ayres Easter. Contact me privately for more information.

Sincerely,

Stephen Emery

Surnames: Easter, Nelson, Oster
I was looking for Nelsons in Adams CO OH, but I was wondering if we stem from the same bunch of Easters (originally Osters). My ruts appear to stem from Franz Oster (in the Frederick CO MD area in the 1760s, and apparently related to the George Oster/Anna Barbara Bruner lot). However, there was another migration around 1770 from Germany (Valentine Oster et al). By 1810, most of the people were using "Easter" although my ancestors reverted to Oster when they got to MO.

Do you know if there was an Anna Storer ? I am looking for information on my ggreat grandmother Anna Storer Foster. She lived in Missouri with her husband Abraham Lincoln Foster and 12 children. I do not know where she was born or who her parents were. Her grandson Willard Coontz (Koontz) (aka) Wild Bill Foster (aka) Willard "Bill" Coontz (Koontz)
was a stunt man and movie star in the 50-70's , he was the son of Jesse Ruth Foster Koontz. Have you ever heard of these people? I have hit a brick wall with this side of my family and any information would b greatly appreciated!
