My gg g mother was Maryann Mowery who married one Mr Carbaugh.
Her dau, Mariah Carbaugh M my g grfather David Lake.Mariah B 1822, M David Lake 1844, moved from Ohio to Illinois 1853 where my grandfather was born.
My understanding is M A Mowery was born in PA.Not much more info regarding her.
It is suspected original surname was either Karsbach or Casebeare.
Mariah and Carbaugh is a brick wall for me.
