He doesn't seem to fit in any of the resident Ohio families--almost all the 1831 birth slots are taken by others, although Isaac 1793 and Sarah Hunt Kelsey are marginal possibilities. He died in Union Co., Indiana, where a number of Coddingtons lived, yet few of them had ancestors from or who lived in Ohio. He must be a member of one of those relatively few emigrations that established the Ohio and Indiana branches.
