I'm trying to find information on my ggg-grandmother, Mary Baughman/Bowman/Baumann.She was born 3 Jan 1819 and diesd 8 Jan 1850.According to family legend, she was born in Germany...but after 30 years of doing research, I've discovered that in my family - it's usually some other family's legend that is quoted.Ours is too boring - but, hey!Somebody had to be the peasant, right?
She married a John Charles Belston (b. 21 Oct 1817 - also in Germany, according to "family legend") and died at the birth of my gg-grandmother, Melissa Ellen Belson.(Melissa was raised by a George & Mary Dague of Milton Twp, Wood Co., OH.Discovered yesterday that Mary Dague was originally Mary Baughman so I'm wondering if my Mary was her neice or something)
Does anyone have a clue on who these people were?Parents, siblings, outlaws, inlaws, the dog's pet goldfish - whatever?Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.I'm trying every backdoor I can think of to break through to "daylight"You can reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
