1820 Ohio census places Moses Starr in Hocking Co. OH. Perhaps he came to OH without his family until it was more civilized.

From Jim Starr:

We know that Moses Starr Jr's will dated 13 Apr 1810 gave the property to his son Moses Starr III. So, here we go...


14 Oct 1817 Deed Book 13-443 Moses Starr and wife Elizabeth sold 208 acres to Benjamin Taylor; right hand fork of Beards Run, $450, corner to John and Nutter Webb.

Jul 1821 Deed Book 15-205 Benjamin and Mary Taylor sold 208 acres to Matthew Maddox $200, same details as above.


4 Jun 1829 Deed Book 19-336 Matthew and Mary Maddox sell 219 acres to Levi Martin for $450. I have no idea why the acreage changed, perhaps a survey was done,

Same details as above.


4 Feb 1833 Deed Book 24-211 Levi and Eliza Martin sell 219 acres to William A. Harrison. $450. , same details.

Here the land splits:


12 Oct 1833 Deed Book 23-62 William A. and Anna Harrison sell 93 acres to James Lang. $95., same general details.

6 Sep 1834 Deed Book 23-241 William A. and Anna Harrison sell 219 acres to William Triplett for $450., exclusive of the 93 acres sold to James Lang; that is the way it is written, details about the same.


I will carry on the William Triplett ownership (ONLY):

26 Feb 1849 Deed Book 35-467 William Triplett sells 245 acres to James C. Teter for $1484. Part of this land Triplett had purchased from someone else and also he had sold 60 acres to a G. Kaser. The balance was 185 acres. Details the same, Beards Run, etc.


4 Nov1852 Deed Book 38-157 George W. Teter takes ownership of the 245 acres minus acreage owned by Kaser, per a court case. George was the son of deceased James C. Teter.

Here the George W. Teter ownership is split:


15 Dec1887 Deed Book 74-57 George W. and Catherine Teter sell 125 acres to Jester G. Teter, same area, corner to John W. Bailey, Bassel Wolfe, George W. Teter and next to Jobez Lang and William Late. Sold for $2,232.47.


15 Dec 1887 Deed Book 74-58 George W. and wife sell 55 acres for $600 and $317.53 to Jabez Lang, same area and details.


At this point, I know where the land that Moses Starr owned is located per my map of 1886.

Jabez Lang and G. W. Teters are on the map.

I will carry on the Jester G. Teter land (ONLY):

29 Oct 1910 Deed Book 190-293 Jester G. Teter sells 116 acres to Martha "Mattie" Shields for $721. The sale mentions the 125 acres but 116 is what he has to sell.


20 Jun 1930 Date of will of Martha Shields, leaving 125 acres to son Dayton G. Shields. Martha states that the wife of Dayton is to never get ownership of the land. At the time of her death she didn't really still own all 125 acres.


1 Jun 1954 Dayton G. Shields sells 116.64 acres to Gobel Osborn. Don't have the price.


My 1910 Gas Co maps show where Martha Shields and J. G. Teter lived which corresponds where Jabez Lang and G. W. Teter lived on the 1886 map.
