We are searching for any information on my G-g-grandparents John and Mariah (Shallenberger) Howenstine. They had several children who died in 1862 from an epidemic and John died in 1863 from tuberculosis. We have a letter his mother sent him from Donnalys Mills PA (her home) shortly before his death in 1863. We know he had only one child Andrew Jackson Howenstine b.1852 d 1928 that lived to adulthood. He was my G-grandfather.
We want to find where and when they might have been married; how and when they migrated to Ohio from PA; any church records; deed records, etc. We know they have a gravestone of the family at Fredericksburg East Cemetery where their son A.J. and his wife Mary Etta Spencer are also buried. We would appreciate any help.
