  • Note:

    This is my ggg-grandfather.
    He was called Peter. He had a younger brother named John, but it was common among Germans to named all or most of their sons the same first name, then call them by their second name.

    Peter would have been in Westmoreland County, PA during the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794.

    He moved to Stark Co, OH before 1820 with his family.
    1820 in Stark Co, OH, p 187
    PETER HARROLD - 210010 - 2101001
    Peter - 26-44
    Elizabeth - 26-44
    1 son - 10-15 [George-18, John-16]
    1 daug - 10-15 [Maria-14, Sarah-11]
    2 daug - 0-10 [Elizabeth-10, Catherine-7]
    2 sons - 0-10 [Samuel-5, Peter-2]

    There are 2 mentions of Harrold in Stark Co, OH records:
    Elizabeth Harrold - Mar - June 3, 1841 - pg 3 - col. 1
    Mr. J.C. Harrold - Mar - Apr 6, 1843 - pg 3 - col 4 - Summ
    [Mar must mean ?married? since the other kinds of records are ?Div?, ?Dea?, ?Adm?]
    This might be daugh Elizabeth?s married, but can?t find any Freeke in the listing and she mar in 1831. Son John m in 1835.


    He was not in the 1823 census of Wayne Co, Oh

    1830 Wayne Co, Ohio, Lake twp, p. 8 -
    Harrole, Peter - 1110101-00020
    which means:
    son - under 5 (David-3)
    son - 5-10 (?)
    son - 10-15 (Peter R-12, Samuel-15)
    son - 20-30 (John Jr-26, George-28)
    Peter - 40-50 (he was 50)
    2 girls - 15-20 (maybe Elizabeth-20 & Catherine-17)
    woman - 50-60 (Elizabeth was abt 51)

    In the 1830s Peter & his sons moved to Richland County, IL: Peter, George, Samuel and maybe John.
    John married in Richland co, IL in 1835.
    But daughter Catherine married in 1838 in Wayne Co, OH.

    Peter and his son, Peter were both in the 1840 census of Lawrence Co, IL
    1840 Lawrence Co, IL, p 186 -
    Peter Herald - 00000101-000000001
    male 30-40 - (George-38)
    male 50-60 - (Peter-60)
    female 60-70 - (Elizabeth-abt 61)
    [where is David-13???]

    This was his son, Peter:
    1840 Lawrence Co, IL, p 199 -
    Harrold, Peter - 0001-00001
    male - 15-20 (Peter-22)
    female - 20-30 (Maria-22)

    Peter & Elizabeth were living with son George in 1850:
    1850 Richland Co, IL, p. 162 (Oct. 28):
    Harold, George - 46, b OH, farmer
    Harold, Peter - 61 PA, farmer (prob should be 70)
    Harold, Elizabeth - 74 PA

    So, it?s very likely that they both died in Richland Co, IL
    Cemeteries near Claremont --
    Utterback Cem, nw of Claremont (no Harrold etc)
    Crest Haven Cem, ne of Claremont (3 Harrell, Harrolle)
    Antioch Cem, 3 mi E of Claremont [His son, Peter Harrolle?s family was buried here]
    Mount Pleasant, 1 mi S of Claremont (has some Harrolles there)
    Eureka Cem, abt 2 mi S of Claremont (had Heral, Harrolle)

    His sons, David and Peter both named a son Wesley, so it seems likely that they had a close relative named Wesley. Here is one who was surely a relative, but I don?t know how exactly.
    Wesley Harrold, b May 1, 1824, Pa.; m Magdalena Mottinger, Feb 20, 1855, Stark Co., Ohio; d Aug 16, 1891 Stark Co. They had 8 known children: Parmelia Rebecca (b abt 1856), Christopher John (b 1859), Lucy Emeline (b 1862), Clara A. (b abt 1864), Maniah Calvin (b 1867), John (b 1870), William A., and Arthur S.
