I'm almost certain that Medary is from Ohio. I have some info
on him--somewhere amid this mass of information I have collected
on Lashley/Lashlee's. He does not appear to fit into my line.

Subject: [LASHLEY] Lashley's from Muskingum County, OH and
Hello, I'm new to the list and I'm hoping someone can help.
I have been working on the genealogy of my mother's
Lashley, born 1844, who is listed on the 1900 New Orleans, La.
census as from
I have found 1853 burial records in New Orleans, La. on
Robert Lashley, of Wash. D.C., his wife, Mary, of Virginia,
Lashley,17, born 1836, of Zanesville, Ohio. These might be the
older brother of my mother's grandfather, Medary Lashley.
Does anyone have
any connections to Lashley's in Muskingum County with
relations who came from
Maryland and Virginia that might be related to my line.
