      Shelley-Quince Families
      No doubt the presence of several French families in this section attracted Francis Quince to this Land of opportunity, but land of privation, want and hard toil, and "it was by faith they sojourned in this land of promise," not knowing of its future as the garden spot of Ohio. Some of our heroic pioneers lived to see the morning glint of the day of promise; others died not knowing or dreaming of the great future of this great country.
      Francis Quince was born in France, May 28, 1816. He came to this country when a young man and settled in Richland county, It was here that he married Catherine Shelley, daughter of Francis and Mary (Shanberg) Shelley, Feb. 13, 1842. She was born in France, Sept. 8, 1822. To Mr. and Mrs. Quince were born six children. Mary was born in Wayne county, Ohio, Nov. 1842, died May 1843. Solomon was born in Richland county, Nov. 5, 1845. Mary Celia was born in Richland county, Sept. 10, 1847, who became the wife of John P. Radenbaugh and is still living. Francis A. Jr., was born in Richland County, Aug. 2, 1849. Laura A. was born July 27, 1852 and died Nov. 8, 1879.

      Mr. Quince came to Paulding county in 1856 and settled on the farm which is now owned by his grandson, Frank Radenbaugh. Here they lived exemplary lives true to their Catholic faith in which they raised their children. In their home the itenerant priest found a hearty welcome and performed his priestly offices. It was on one of these visits that Felicia Barbier now Mrs. Charles Pio was baptized. The children attended what was called the Wiltsie school which was located in the angle between the Paulding road and the Wiltsie cemetery road. The teachers were Mrs. Theodora Merchant, Dr. Cunningham and Aelac Kilpatrick.
      Mr. Quince was township trustee for six years; and treasurer one year. His death occurred July 8, 1879, aged 63 years. Mrs. Quince survived him until Aug. 26, 1898, aged almost 76 years. They were both buried in the Snellenberger cemetery.
      Solomon—whose name was Joseph Solomon Quince was married in Paulding county Feb 12, 1872 to Mary Anastasie Socie who was the daughter of Eugene and Frances (Cholley) Socie and born in Stark county, Ohio, Aug. 28, 1850. Their family was Francis E. born November 22, 1872 and married Viola Smith—no children. Mary C. was born September 28, 1874, and married Christopher Vauble. They have one son Christian now a soldier. Charles J. was born January 4, 1878. Edward F. was born October 20, 1879, died February 7, 1881. Mary Celia married John P. Radenbaugh, December 7, 1866. Their family will be given later in business section of Payne. Francis A Jr., was married January 13, 1873 to Miss Agatha Lothammer, born in France in 1852 and the daughter of Theobold and Mary M. (Gamber) Lothammer. To this union were born Cahterine M., Oct. 6, 1873 and married David Smith, they have two children, Celia and Charles, Mary Celeste born April 11, 1875 and married Charles Speice. They have no children. Morris O., was born June 29, 1877.
      A great tragedy occurred in this family August 19, 1880, when the father working in a clearing started for the house when a storm came up. He had his ax on his shoulder when struck by lightning; the ax acting as a conductor. The widow afterward became the wife of John Pearl to whom was born one son, Vinie Pearl.
