The 1884 History of Wabash County, under Charles C. Aughinbaugh, is found the following:

"CHARLES C. AUGHINBAUGH, farmer, P.O. North Manchester. Charles C. Aughinbaugh was born at North Manchester, Wabash Co., Ind., March 21, 1855.

His grandfather was a native of Lancaster, Penn., and his grandmother a native of York County, Penn. Their parents were Germans, who came to the United States in the troublous times of 1776. The father (John Aughinbaugh) of our subject was born in York County, Penn., in 1814. He was a man of literary tastes, although he only possessed a common school education. He removed to Tuscarawas County, Ohio, when twelve years of age. In 1828, he was accidentally shot in the shoulder, from which he suffered for a number of years. In 1830, he was married to Susan Gary, who died in 1833, leaving one child. Some years later he started a saddle and harness shop, which he conducted successfully, though he had never learned that trade. Subsequently he spent some five years among the Wyandot Indians, whom he learned to like, and found it a task to part with them when they were removed by the Government to another locality. In 1844, he came to Wabash County, Ind., and purchased the farm in Chester Township upon which his widow still resides.

He owned two other farms--one in Chester and one in Pleasant Township. He was married, August 30, 1844, to Ellen Vanarsdale, who bore him fifteen children, eleven of whom are now living--Alice M., Lucy M., John R., Henry P., Charles C., Franklin P., Ida A., Hattie A., George W., Orpha A. and Effie B. The father died October 15, 1876. The mother survives him. Mr. Aughinbaugh was a member of the Christian Church, and one of its Directors. His brother was a soldier in the Union army, and died in the service. Charles C., the son, was reared a farmer, and received a good English education. He is now engaged in the pursuit of farming at the old homestead, and is an energetic and enterprising young man."

Your reference to the "decendants" of John Aughinbaugh are a match, and I would be interested in obtaining a copy of the information which you have to fill in this family a bit more. Thanks for your help.
