I just discoverd two obituaries on Ancestry.com
Because of the obituary of John Agnew's daughter MARTHA AGNEW DANNER, I know JOHN AGNEW was from Gettysburg, Adams County, Pennsylvania and moved to Emmitsburg, Frederick County, Maryland in 1814; therefore, this is John Agnew in the 1810 census below.
See obituary below for Martha Agnew Danner and also the obituary for Sophia Agnew Horner daughter of JOHN AGNEW son of David AGNEW & Mary Jane SMITH.David Agnew and Sophia Agnew Horner were half brother and sister of Martha Agnew Danner. Sophia Agnew Horner's daughter Margaret L. Horner married John Agnew son of David Agnew & Mary Jane Smith.
Boy these people intermarried in the 1800's.
Does anyone know the names of the two wives of John AGNEW from Gettysburg, Adams County, Pennsylvania?
John's 1st wife died before 1810.
