Events in My Family Tree: January 13

Yesterday I had no deaths, but today I have no weddings.  I wonder if the lack of weddings is in any related to it being the 13th?  Maybe I had superstitious relatives?  I'll have to wait and see what results I get in the succeeding months.

Births

John W. Gaunt, son of Uz Gaunt and Sarah Ann Whitacre, was born January 13, 1837 in Ohio.  He is my 2nd cousin 4x removed.

Eliza Sellers, daughter of John Leonard Sellers and Elizabeth Wenger, was born January 13, 1841 in Allen County, Ohio.  She is my 3rd cousin 4x removed.

Georgina Arlene Feil, daughter of Rudolf William Feil and Jessie Naomi Gaunt, was born January 13, 1943.  She is my 5th cousin once removed through the Gaunts.
