John H Aughenbaugh, b 22 July 1818 in PA, blacksmith was in Hepburn, Lycoming Co., PA in 1850 with wife Rachel and sons John and James. He and family were in Williamsport East, Lycoming Co. in 1860. In 1870 the family was in Corry, Erie Co., PA as follows: Aughenbaugh, John 51 blacksmith; Rachel 46 keeping house;James T 21 blacksmith;Regina 18; George 17; Suse 10; Ada 9; Sallie 6;Oscar 2.All born in PA. George Aughenbaugh, son of John H. was in Ravenna, Portage Co., OH in 1880, and his descendants in the line I am seeking are well defined. The next I found of the family was that Ada md A.B.Simmons, and that Mrs. Rachel Aughenbaugh died in Feb 1893 at the home of her son-in-law A.B.Simmons in Williamsport, PA.
In the 1900 census John Aughenbaugh was living with his son James and family in Columbus, Franklin Co., OH. Then a record of burials in the Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, OH shows: John Aughenbaugh b 7/22/1818 d 5/25/1902 father Henry Aughenbaugh ; James Turner Aughenbaugh b 4/18/1849d 3/30/1913father John Aughenbaugh. This was the first indication I had as to John A' fathers name. If anyone has any information as to John H Aughenbaugh's place of birth, his wife Rachel and/or his father Henry, I would be interested in corresponding with them. Any help would be appreciated.
