Zoeller Family History

Ruth Zoeller

Tiffin, OH

 

Grandparents:   Oliver Jackson, b. 07/04/1903    Parents (his SS application)    Parents ( on application) David Jackson and Maude Patton  He says born Blair County

He married (on 07/15/1927):  Sarah Alice Allison b. 04/08/1906 (her SS application--this date is odd, she claimed to her children 04/08/1913).  Parents (on application) father:  Daniel Allsion; mother "unknown."  She claimed born in Osceola Mills, her SS application says Blair.

Not sure what to believe, however, they both or maybe only one was an orphan.  My grandfather died of Black Lung he claimed from working in the mines.  He was very literate as he loved to read (my mother said he always asked her to bring books home for him).
