Notes for Michael C Page and Sarah C Schooley

c 1818 Michael C. Page, son of John Page and Rachel Hartman, was born in Ohio. [1][2]

1820 Sarah Schooley, daughter of Benjamin Schooley and Ann K Ivins, was born on April 11, 1820 in New Jersey. [3][4][5][6]

1837 Sarah's father, Benjamin Schooley, and family, transferred from Chesterfield meeting, Burlington County, New Jersey (certificate dated 1837,4,4), to Cincinnati Meeting, Ohio (received 1837,12,21). [7]

1839 Benjamin Schooley, (NJ) Tailor, lived on Abigail between Syc[amore] and B[roa]d[wa]y. [8][9][Photocopy, 1856 Map of Cincinnati, Near "A" in Cincinnati.][10]

1839 Michael's grand-father, Thomas Page (NJ), lived on George Street between Western Row and John in Cincinnati. [11][12]

1840 Michael's father, John Page, lived in Washington Twp, Clermont County, Ohio with males 20-30 (Michael), 15-20 (Christopher), 10-15 (Asahel) and 5-10 (Thomas) and females age 15-20 (Mary Ann) 10-15 (Rebecca) and 40-50 (Rachel). [13]

1840 Michael C Page and John Page were listed in an account book for the H & S Bainum store in Laurel, Clermont County, Ohio. [14]

1840 Sarah's father, Benjamin Schooley (age 50-60), lived in Ward 6 Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio (age 50-60) with 4 other males and 6 females; two age 10-15 (Catherine and Mary), two age 15-20 (Elizabeth and Rebecca), one age 20-30 (Sarah), and one age 40-50; in the house. [15]

1842 Sarah's father and brother lived at the same address in Cincinnati. Benjamin Schooley, was listed in the sixth ward, tailor, 5th between Western Row and John Street. James R Schooley, cooper, son of Benjamin, had the same address [16]


1842 Benjamin Schooley lived near the second "I" in Cincinnati of this 1856 Map of Cincinnati. [17].


[18] The 1839 address of Thomas Page, the 1842 address of Benjamin Schooley, and the Quaker Friends church were all shown in green, near blocks I and XIX, in an 1869 atlas of Cincinnati by Titus. Perhaps Michael Page and Sarah Schooley met at Quaker meeting, soon after Sarah's father, Benjamin, had moved closer to the meeting house. The 1869 map shows the Quaker church between John Street and the adjacent street named Central Avenue, previously named Western Row.


1843 Michael C Page and Sarah C Schooley were married on 14 September, in Hamilton County, Ohio. Sarah's brother, James R Schooley, attested to the age of Michael C Page. [19]

1844 On October 24, Benjamin F Page was buried, at age 1 month 5 days, at the Old Calvary Cemetery in Jackson Twp, Clermont County, Ohio, son of M C & S C Page [20]. Sarah's father's name was Benjamin. Perhaps this Benjamin was the firstborn child of Michael and Sarah. [21] [Photocopy, Grave marker of Benjamin Page, 1844.]

1845 On 20 November, Sarah Page (formerly Schooley) was reported at the Quaker meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio for marriage contrary to discipline. [22]

1848 On 21 December, Sarah Page (formerly Schooley) was dropped from membership by the Quakers, apparently for marrying MC Page contrary to Quaker discipline. [23]

1850 On November 5, Sarah C Page (age 30) and Michael Page (age 32) lived in Washington Twp, Clermont County, Ohio with daughter Elizabeth (age 5), and Sarah's brother Benjamin Schooley. [24][25]

1850 A biosketch of son John R. Page, written in 1888, reported his birth [26]:

Mr. [John R] Page was born in Clermont county, Ohio, on the 26th day of August, 1850, and removed with his parents to Darke county, Ohio, when quite young, where they built a cabin in the woods in 1851. In 1865 the family moved to near Union City, Indiana, where his mother died in 1868.

1854 Sarah Page's brother, Benjamin Schooley, was committed to a lunatic asylum by her father, Benjamin Schooley Senior, and M.C. Page. [27]

1854 MC Page witnessed James Ferrel's will (relationship, if any, unknown) in Darke County, Ohio. Michael's brother, CW [Christopher William] Page, was named in the proceedings. [28]

1857 M.C. Page was shown as owner of Section 17 NE 1/4 (80 acres), in Jackson Twp, Darke County, Ohio [29]. Nearby was land of brother-in-law or father-in-law B[enjamin] Schooley, cousin WB [William Benton] Page, and brother CW [Christopher William] Page. Sister, widow Sarah Light, likely had land on the plot for the heirs of D Light. Also nearby was land of W.K. Marquess, perhaps where Charles Pickett, future husband-to-be of daughter Elizabeth R Page, was living. [Photocopy, close-up of 1857 Darke County, Ohio atlas map with land of MC Page and WK Marquess.]

1857 MC Page and Robert M Farrell (son of James Ferrel) sold land to John Buff, the second husband of Aunt Jane Curlet Pigman Page (wife of Abner Page). [30]

1860 Sarah C Page (age 40, born in NJ) and M.C. Page (age 42, born in Ohio) lived in Greenville, Jackson Twp, Darke County, Ohio with daughter Elizabeth R Page (age 14), and son John R Page (age 9), both born in Ohio. M.C. was a farmer with $1600 real estate and $700 total estate value. No-one was listed as attending school and all were able to read. Living nearby was Uncle Asahel Page. [31][32][33]

1860 Samuel Norton (age 34) and Elizabeth (age 28)[later to be the second wife of Michael C Page] lived in Washington Twp, Randolph County, Indiana with daughter Malinda (age 8) and son Lewis L Norton (age 6). [34]

1863 MC Page was taxed by the IRS in Lakeville, Union Twp, St. Joseph County, Indiana for special income and as a retail dealer. [35]

1864 MC Page was taxed by the IRS in Lakeville, Union Twp, St. Joseph County, Indiana for income, a retail business, and a horse carriage. [36]

1865 Asahel C Page (likely MC's uncle or perhaps his brother) sold land to M.C. Page and Sarah's brother-in-law, John Hartshorn, in Darke County, Ohio, by a deed which was notarized in Randolph County, Indiana.

1865 On 2 October, Michael C Page was appointed administrator for the estate of Asahel C Page. Wm R. Adkins, I.C. Pickett, and Wm R Marques provided sureties. An inventory was filed on December 15, 1865. The first settlement was made on February 6, 1867. [37] [Photocopy, 1865 A. C. Page estate.]

1865 Sarah's brother, Benjamin, died and the estate was administered by Sarah's brother-in-law, J.D. Hartshorn. I.C. Pickett (daughter Elizabeth's husband's brother) was involved. [38]

1866 MC Page was taxed by the IRS in S. Bend, Union Twp, St. Joseph County, Indiana for income and a horse carriage. [39]

1867 EF&C Straight sold land to MC Page and CT Pickett (daughter Elizabeth's husband). [40]

1868 On March 17, Sarah Page died and was buried at Union City Cemetery, Randolph County, Indiana, on the north side, about 3 streets in from East entrance, with inscription: (unreadable) Sarah; wife to; M C Page; died March 17 1868; aged 47 Yrs 11 Mo; 23 ds; (and); Samuel O; son of M CAS C Page (MC and SC Page?); died April 15 1855; aged 23 days. [41] [Photocopy, Sarah Schooley Page's gravestone, Union City Cemetery, Indiana, 1868.] [42]

1868 Sarah Page's father, Benjamin Schooley, died in November and his estate was appraised by Sarah's brother-in-law, Thomas B Page, and was administered by Sarah's brother-in-law, J.D. Hartshorn, for Probate Judge Meeker.

1868 On 26 December, Elizabeth Page, daughter of Michael Page, gave testimony at the probate of the will of Asahel C Page, whom we assume to be Michael's uncle. Isaiah C. Pickett, older brother of Elizabeth's husband Charles, executed the estate with probate judge Meeker. Elizabeth Page wrote about caring for Asahel in a letter. [43] "M C Page adm of Ashel C Page. Note of Testimony: Elizabeth R Picket states that she was acquainted with A C Page decd. knew him at his last illness. he had a constitutional disease ... don't remember the time he stayed at my fathers house. I was not there at the time he died. Some of the time he was not able to take care of himself. M C Page is my father."

1869 M.C. Page, Mrs E. Pickett, and C.F. Page [sic, perhaps C.T Pickett] were charter members of the Rebekah Lodge No 12 in Union City, Ohio. [44]

1870 MC Page (age 53) was a patent medicine vendor living in Union City, Jackson Twp, Darke County, Ohio in the household of MC Page's sister-in-law, Rebecca Polley (age 48, born in NJ), with Polley's children and Elizabeth Rynensin (age 47, born in PA). Michael's estate was valued at $1200. Son John Page (age 19) was living nearby in the household of Jacob Livingood, the Justice of the Peace. Daughter Elizabeth had married Charles Pickett. [45][46][47]

1870 Elisabeth Norton (age 38) lived in Washington Twp, Randolph County, Indiana with son Lewis L Norton (age 16). In the same household are Alanza (age 22) and Malinda (age 18) Wysonger. Next door are households of Moon and Hutton, both of North Carolina. [48]

1870 On 28 December, Michael C Page and Elizabeth Norton (widow, born Elizabeth Hinshaw) were married in in Randolph County, Indiana by Justice of the Peace Jacob Ectzrath. [49]

c 1871-76 The estate of AC Page [Michael's uncle] was administered by Michael C Page and JC Pickett [sic] [50] These documents would provide a three generation link between great-uncle Asahel C Page and Elizabeth R Page, daughter of Michael C. Page, and husband of Charles Pickett, through Isaiah Cochran Pickett, brother to Charles Pickett.

1880 Michael C. Page (age 62) lived in Washington Twp, Randolph County, Indiana. He was a farmer and had the piles. His wife was Elizabeth Page (age 48, born Ohio, with parents born in North Carolina). Next door was Elizabeth's son Lewis L Norton. [51]

1881 Michael C Page was buried on May 30 1881 at the Union City, Indiana cemetery, lot 497. His obituary reported "M.C. Page, a former resident of this city, and well-known to the residents of the Ohio side, died at his home in Rural, this county, Sunday last. He was buried in the cemetery this city Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. Funeral services were held at the M.E. Church." [52][53]

1907 Elizabeth Norton Page was buried. Her gravemarker at Mt Pleasant cemetery, Lynn, Randolph County, Indiana was labeled "Mother" with dates 1832-1907. [54]

Research Notes:

Benjamin Page, perhaps a son of Michael and Sarah Page, was buried in 1844 at the same cemetery where William Page was buried in 1834. We do not know the relationship, if any, to the family of William Page [55], born 1772 in New Jersey, and died 1834 in Moscow, Clermont County, Ohio, who had a family home at Point Isabel. John and Rachel Page, who we suspect were the parents of Michael C Page, were listed in census records at Laurel, Ohio in 1860 and at Point Isabel in 1870, suggesting a family link. Other census records suggest that the family of William Page lived in Kentucky for a while.

1819 Michael C Page's birth has been reported as listed in the bible of father John Page (born NJ) and mother Rachel Hartman (born Kentucky). We would like to know of this bible.

1907 Mrs. Elizabeth Page, aged about 74 years, died at her home west of Rural, last Sunday morning after a long illness. Funeral services were held at Mt Pleasant church, Reverend Gray of Farmland officiating. Interment there. [Newspaper notice abstract dated May 16, 1907, no citation recorded]
