Alphedus is my ggg-grandmother....her daughter was Mary Magdalene who married Thomas Barnhart and migrated to Oregon, her daughter Ivy Martha Barnhart married James Johnson and settled in the Methow Valley of NW Washington State, Ivy's daughter Mary Susan Johnson was my grandmother. I would be very interested in knowing about this bond that has Jonas Letterman and John Hughes signatures re the marriage of Jonas and Alphedus. Any way to scan that or send it electronically? It also appears that Alphedus had 3 sisters, Mary Polly, Elizabeth, and Hannah. We know that Alphedus' mother (John X Hughes' wife) was Keziah.....what is not sure and does not seem to mesh is whether this Keziah was Keziah Ward.
