Aaron Vananda (ca. 1784-ca. 1831) was the brother of my great-great-great grandfather Cornelius Vananda (Van Enden) by his second wife Catherine Ackley. The brothers were born in what is now Greenwood Township, Perry County, Pa., where their father died in 1800. The mother died after 1804 and Aaron was an early settler in Tuscarawus County, Ohio, where he married Mary Collet in 1811. Jacob married Elizabeth Haflich in Snyder County in 1816 and was in Stark County, Ohio by 1830. Researchers on this family are Nancy Warner of Dearborn, Michigan, Carlene Mock Hartgrove of Tennessee, and numerous others. Aaron had a large family. I have the family researched to about 1600 in the Netherlands.
