I am currently trying to sort out all of the Pughs in and around Brooke Co, VA during the period 1800-1850. I have come across your John and I have nothing concrete to go with but I thought I would post an excerpt from a GED file I found on This could be your John and it has two wives' names for you to look into. There is not much on children but in the 1850 census for Harrison, Carroll, OH I do find John Pugh (b. Abt. 1786 in PA) living with his wife Catherine (b. Abt. 1789 in Ireland). Living next door is a Job Boggs (b. Abt. 1778) and the next farm over is John Pugh, jr (b. Abt. 1816) and family and next to them Hugh Pugh (b. Abt. 1825 in OH) and his wife. The Ancestry GED file does not have an author listed but the name of the file is "v11t320." I have found that some of the information contained in the file is in conflict with the facts I have but I am offering it in case it could give you some additional direction in your search. Look below for:

Children of HUGH PUGH and ELIZABETH DAVIS are:
3. i. JOHN3 PUGH, b. WFT Est. 1766-1795; d. WFT Est. 1822-1878.

I will keep you posted if I find out any more about your John Pugh and I would appreciate it if you could let me know if something develops at your end. Thanks much and good luck in your search. Jeff Pugh

I would like to have a discussion with anyone about the Pugh family
John Pugh Sr was born in Pa 1786/1787 married to the mother of his children (I cannot find her) before or after marriage he moved to Brooke County VA; where John Jr and I am sure other children were born,
In 1815
(John Pugh of Brooke Co. Virginia (now West Virginia) bought (Certificate 5453 ) on January 23 ,1815 land in Range 6 Township 15 Section 10 – Harrison Twp of then called Stark County, later called Carroll County. In 1833 John Pugh in Harrison Twp. Paid taxes on land in Range 6 Township 15, Section 10 and personal taxess on 2 horses and 3 cattle and a lot in (new) Harrisburg.

In 1835 John Sr, married Catherine Leslie b Ireland in Columbiana County--They had no children. John died about 1866.

later: some of this land was transferred to John Jr. who married Jacasta Wilcoxen of Fairfax VA.

Their Children were:

Mary female 13yrs Mary Mrs Francis Maple m 1855 2 boys 3 girls

Catherine female 11 years This is Mrs John Cline houseful of boys

John C male 9 years have not found (Mary Maple’s fisrt child named John C)

Rebecca E. Female 7 years This is initial E for Ellen Fisher "Aunt Ellie "mother of Jennie

Vincent male 5 years m: Nancy Leyde Sep 1870 2 girls

Margaret J(Jane) female3 years This is Aunt Jane, Mrs Philbert Wright

Emeline female 1 year This girl is not in pic of John and five daughters made about 1880/1890 in "Carroll Studio " Carrollton Ohio. In 1854 John and Jacasta had a last child Eliza Ann (Aunt Ann) who married George Marshall and had a daughter Alice Evidently Jacasta died about this time.

It seems that the woman who married Mr Auten was John Jr.'s sister and another child of the unknown first wife of John Sr.born PA 1786/87
