I am hoping someone out there may have more information, on my great great grandfathers brother; JOhn Lafferty. As late as 1880 he was living in Peirpont town, and owned a blacksmith shop. He may have been married twice; first to a Sarah (?) born in Chautauqua county, New York. Second in 1859 to a Harriet Chambers/Chamberlain. One daughter, Matilda listed on the 1880 census. According to reference sent by Ohio Genealogical; Matilda married a Charles Jackson in 1894. Also listed on 1880 census; a couple of pages later is Charles Lafferty, wife Ida and daughter Carrie. Charles was 22 and Ida 18, Carrie 7 months. Can anyone help? Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! Just as an aside; John died April 23, 1902 in New Hudson, Allegany county, New York, but was sent back to Peirpont to be buried. So far no luck finding grave or family burial. John had several family members in this area and may have been visiting. He is listed as a widower in death records.
