My greatgrandmother was Mary Elizabeth Daughenbaugh Harrison. Her father was Peter Daughenbaugh, born around 1811 in Centre County, Pennsylvania. Her mother's last name was Behr. They called her Adeline. Peter and family moved to Greene co. WI where Mary E. married my g'grandfather Robert Henry Harrison. They moved to Benton County, Iowa. She died in childbirth in 1879 and is buried in Davis Cemetery, Linn County, about a mile SE of where they lived in Benton Co., Iowa. Not long after, he moved to Woodbury County, Iowa where he died. His son, who was my grandfather was Robert Henry (Bert), my father is Robert Ferroll, b. 1909.

About 400 families or so, at last count...

I am trying to comiple a brief history for a few of my nieces and nephews. My nephew Lonnie is a Daughenbaugh. I am looking for information on his gr-gr-grandfather William J. Daughenbaugh.
He was a Mule driver for the Army in the Civil War. (Not sure which side) Any info will be helpful.

I have a photograph of my g.g.grandfather John with his brother William, William's wife (2) Belle and two daughters Emily and Anna (Maude).

John was in the Civil War, I have his Discharge Papers and copies of other official doccuments.

The William that I have, appears to be William I. Daughenbaugh, B. July 1848 M. (1) Ann Eliza Rodgers and (2) Belle Smith.

My records show 6 children with Ann and only the two daughters with Belle.

My g.g.grandfather John had a son named William J. B. 5 March 1869

If I can find it, I do have a family sheet for a William J. B.1830

Any help for you?

William J. Daughenbaugh B. 1830 (1850 age 20)

When I was conducting my research, I found my g.g.grandfather, John, in:
History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-5; by Samuel P. Bates Vol. V Harrisburg 1871

This book lists the members of each regiment and Company and provides Name, Rank, Date of Muster into Service and Remarks for each member. It also gives a narrative of Regiment History, what they did and where.

My g.g.grandfather, for instance was in 188 Reg. Co. D and was wounded in the hand at Cold Harbor, VA June 3, 1864 and mustered out with his Company Dec. 14, 1865.

Good luck with your search.

I am enjoying all of the messages----Have I told you that I have military records for Absolem, Thomas Jefferson, and Christian? A couple of them are to collect money from the government for support, either widow or a child. Pretty interesting.
I have military papers for Jacob Zentz, as well. Have you ever come across that name in your research? He is the husband of Mary Elizabeth's sister in law, Clarissa Ann Harrison Kirby Zentz.

No I didn''t know
