The parents of Abraham Gallentine, are Jacob and Christina (unknown). Abraham Gallentine, was born about 1810 in Allegheny Co., PA and died around 1849 in unknown.

Jacob Gallentine was born 1784 in Frederick Co, MD. He married Christina unknown. He moved to Mckeesport, Allegheny Co, PA between 1840 and 1850. He and Christina are believed to be buried in McKeesport, PA. Jacob was a distiller and farmer in Fayette Co., PA.

Jacob and Christina's children were: Samuel Gallentine, b.1812 PA, Abraham B. b. about 1818-1819, Peter no date of birth, and John S.

Jacob Gallentine’s parents were Johann Jacob Gallatin III and Elizabeth Synder. Johann Jacob Gallatin III, the revolutionary soldier, was born June, 22, 1757 in Lancaster Co., PA. and died 17 Sept 1837 in Fayette Co., PA. He moved from Chambersburg, PA to Fayette Co., PA in 1801. Jacob was a Cooper by trade. He married Elizabeth Synder before 1784. Elizabeth was born about 1756 in Fayette Co., PA. and died Oct. 11, 1836 in Fayette Co, PA. Her first husband was George Ritenour.

Johann Jacob Gallatin III, was the son of Johann Jacob Galatin II and Elenora Dorthea Maquinet. Johann Jacob Galatin II, was born 1718 in Germany and died 1780 in Manheim, Lancster Co., PA. He and Elenora were married in 1742.

Johann Jacob Galatin II’s father was Johann Jakob Galatin. Johann Jakob was born 1680 in Germany and died unknown. He came to the US in 1724.

The previous information came from a book in my Uncle’s possession. The book is; “Jacob Galatin and his Family Descendants” by Thomas E. Gallentine.

I am looking for any information on the parents of Louise (or Louisa) McKnight born 1817 and died around 1850 shortly after the 1850 census.
