Does anyone have any further information on a particular Benjamin Covert and/or his wife Elizabeth, née Young?Their information:
Benjamin Covert Occupation: Ship steward Born: February 1844, Ohio Died: probably 1908 or 1909, perhaps in Pennsylvania Married: 1881 or 1882, to Elizabeth Young, with whom he had a son, William (born 1882)
Elizabeth Young Born:October 1859 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Died: in or after 1920 Parents: father was from Prussia (now mostly Germany) and Alsace Lorraine.If her father was indeed from Prussia, her maiden name would very likely have been spelled "Jung".
Sources: William Covert's death certificate 1900, 1910, 1920 US Census for Pennsylvania Pittsburgh City Directory 1905-1910
I have been unsuccessful locating Benjamin and Elizabeth's death certificates, finding them in the 1880 Census, or determining if Benjamin left a last will and testament.I have also checked works on Coverts in the US.Benjamin is not mentioned.Any help if finding out anything more about this couple, my great-great-grandparents, would be wonderful.Thank you in advance.
