GIDEON in Ohio

Now this page will probably end up quite large as I start placing my own personal data online, as Champaign County Ohio was a perverbial breeding ground for those Gideon folks. There were also Gideon families in other Ohio Counties (in fact at the moment causing a great research debate in my own lines over two "Henry Gideon" lines, both claiming to be the Henry, son of Peter Gideon of Loudoun County Va has emerged...). At any rate, here are some assorted GIDEON facts and excerpts from the great State of Ohio.

Ohio GIDEON Death Records

Extracts from Ohio Online Death Certificates Index

This great database, just under development by the Ohio Historical Society allows you to look up a name and get the Death Certificate Information. This comes in VERY handy when ordering a copy from Vital Records. Thus far the index only covers deaths from 1913 through 1917 but plans to expand as information can be added to the database.
