To all intersted.................Mu great grandmother's sister Evangleine Amanda WEST married Ralph DUTCHER in Ottawa County, OH, in 1873. Ralph was the son of Ira and Mary Ann Veeder DUTCHER. They had five kids, most of whom ended up in southern California. I have group sheets, pictures, and contacts and would be delighted to share all of it. ......Bill C
Dutchers are a distant\par connection, but I have some of the descendants of Ira S. DUTCHER of Catawba Island, Ottawa Co., OH. He was the son of Ruleff (or Ralph) and Almira (Waring) DUTCHER and was born 13 March 1814 at Dover, Dutchess Co., NY. He spent his childhood in Auburn, Cayuga Co., NY. After spending some time in Rochester, NY, he married Mary Ann VEEDER in 1838 and moved to East Oswego, NY. They moved to Sandusky, OH in 1852 and to Ottawa County in 1855.............His son Ralph married my Eva WEST. It is this family for which I have substantial info and contacts with direct descendants.
