Do you have any information on Catherine Meeks who married Aquilla Hardesty in 1816 in Muskingum County? She died in 1839 in Licking County, and I am trying to connect this family with Margaret Catherine Hardesty, who married Jacob Donaker in 1852.

My name is Del Fox and my great grandmother is Alice Viola Donaker (a.k.a. Bonnie). Her father is Jacob Donaker who married Margaret Catherine Hardesty. I am trying to find ancestry information on Jacob and his relatives. I know he was born Sept. 15, 1830 in Muskingdom Co., Ohio, and died Feb. 7, 1904 in Manson, Ia. Although I have attempted in learn more about "my" Donakers
