Surnames: France, Evans, McLain, Ziegler, Rambo, Diltz, Slack, Lowry, Rowens, Rowings
John FRANCE b abt 1768 PA
in VA est abt 1797-1814 maybe longer
in Muskingum Co OH by 1840 or earlier
wife Mary 1782-1863 buried Vinton Co OH - its very possible that she was not his first wife

Likely children but not proven:
1) Sarah b 1797 VA d 1889 Morgan Co OH
md/1 Wm McLAIN 1815 Fairfield Co OH
md/2 Baltzer ZIEGLER 1836 Muskingum Co OH

3) Barbara Ellen b 1808 VA d 1892 Vinton Co OH

4) Jacob b 1811-12 VA d 1880 Muskingum Co OH
md Phebe Elizabeth DILTZ nee SLACK 1833 Musk Co OH
5) Elizabeth b 1814 VA d 1887 Vinton Co OH
md John M. LOWRY 1835 Muskingum Co OH
Elizabeth & John resided in Hocking & Vinton Cos in OH

The 1850 Newtown Twp, Muskingum Co OH census shows:
FRANCE, John 82 PA Farmer b 1768
FRANCE, Mary 64 MD b 1786
FRANCE, Henry 27 VA Farmer b 1823
FRANCE, Sarah 24 VA b 1826
EVANS, Eli 15 OH b 1835

I do not know if Sarah & Henry are siblings or husband & wife
There is a Sarah Ann FRANCE who md John H. ROWENS/ROWINGS in 1851 Muskingum Co OH. This could be her. This family moved to Clay Co IN and later descendants were in Parke Co IN.

Any help appreciated, there are probably other children belonging to this line.

There is a lot of common information between the John France you list and the information I have on my own ggg grandfather, John France & his wife Mary. One problem, however, is that you don't have any sons for this John. My family lore has that my own John France had (at least) one son--also named John. There are also a lot of other inconsistencies but many of the dates and names are similar. Here's what I have:

1 John x France b: Abt. 1770 in PA
+Mary nee? Williams b: 26 April 1791 in PA (she married Jackson Williams after John's death)

...2 John xx France Jr. b: Abt. 1815 in PA
+Susan Louisa Hodsel b: 1 June 1814 at sea

..... 3 John Van Buren France b: 21 February 1842 in Coshocton, OH
..... +Julia Ann Haney b: 22 October 1842 in
Coitsville, Trumbull, OH m: 30 September 1861 in Marion, Grant, WI
............ 3 Cass W. France
............ 3 Hildy Lee France
................ +William Porter Jr. m: 4 August 1861 in Grant Co., WI
............ 3 William James France
................ +Anna Zerilda Wells

My info isn't very verifiable. Do you think there might be a connection?
