Re: None Daniel Iman and son Jacob and more coincidence?? (victoriansweetie)
I think the Jacob M., most likely a son of Daniel and his Rebecca Crites died in Ohio, though it had to be a bit later than your 1869 estimate since he was seen as 4 years old in the household for the 1870 census. He did not appear, however, for 1880, nor did his apparent grandfather Jacob. Both seem to have died before the Imans and related families migrated into Indiana.

You lost me on the Bond connections. Was Clarinda as you see it, a sibling of Joseph Layton Jr? And she married into Bond? We had other Imans marrying Bonds in Southern Illinois in these days. It does spin one's head, but it's important to remember that people in those days were never the lonely cowboy individualists that we are today. They almost always migrated as parts of groups. Sometimes they did so as a result of failed experiences with land not working well for them, but many times they'd improved a property and were interested in selling high and at the same time finding some newly opened land that they could develop. These Imans were surely on the move.

I'm not altogether following your dialog about John E of Kanawha and a John in Greene -- but I'm also amazed at the rich intra-family connections and crossed pathways we may not know about. We've been looking down the line from Jacob Iman of Christian. He had an uncle (Peter) who went to Fayette, and who also moved through Ross County. Peter's son George lived in part of Greene county of Ohio and still has descendants around Xenia, including some which migrated into Indiana and returned!
