Research Notes:

Possible son Benjamin 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, born 1772 in New Jersey, and died 1834 in Moscow, Clermont County, Ohio, and had a family home at Point Isabel. Our notes for William Page are at our Genealogy Page at this website. John Page and Rachel, suspected parents of this 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 was reportedly listed in the bible of father John Page (born NJ) and mother Rachel Hartman (born Kentucky). We would like to know of this bible.
