In Reply to: Margaret Ashbaugh of Westmoreland County PA posted by Mike Johnston on 09/25/02 at 7:21 PM:
: Looking for information regarding my gg grandmother Margaret Ashbaugh. Margaret was born November 12, 1847 in Latrobe, PA. Her mother's name was Mary, and from the Westmoreland County, Unity Township 1850 census it appears her father was Andrew Ashbaugh.
: On October 27, 1874, Margaret married Samuel S. Smith in Derry Station, PA. It seems Samuel was Margaret's 3rd husband, her 1st husband Jesse Kyle having died, and she divorced John Peterson, her 2nd husband. Samuel's 1st wife (name unknown) died around 1870-71.
: Supposedly both Margaret and Samuel had children from their previous marriages. Around 1880 the family left Pennsylvania and went to DeKalb County, Illinois, which is where I picked up their trail and began back tracking.
: Looking for anyone with a connection or lead that can help me discover more about this branch on my tree.
Do you have a birth year for father Andrew?
