I am reseaching the genealogy of Thomas Gearhart, born about 1781 (probably in PA).He was living in Cumberland Co., KY in 1810.He married Hannah Allen (perhaps a second wife) in Cumberland Co., KY in 1814.He was living in Adair Co., KY in the 1820 and 1830 censuses.I don't know where and when he and/or Hannah (Allen) Gearhart, his wife, lived or died after 1830.He is said to have had three daughter born between 1800-1815 (by his first and/or second wife(ves)) who married Dillinghams who were Sally Gearhart who married Irvine Dillingham, Harriett Gearhart who married Joshua Dillingham and Peggy Gearhart who married William Dillingham.
Does anybody know anything else about any of these Gearhart women who married these three Dillingham men?Where did the marriages occurWhere did there couples live in the various censuses?What are the names and birth dates of their children?
So far I have found nothing on Joshua or Irvine Dillingham.I think that William Dillingham may have moved to either Lafayette Co., MO, or Lincoln Co., TN.I found a William Dillingham in the 1860 census in Lafayette Co., MO, age 52, born KY, with no apparent wife and with children, the oldest listed being Elizabeth, age 23.The Lincoln Co., TN, for 1860 lists William Dillingham, age 58 and Peggy listed just below him.Peggy's age is not readable so she could be his wife or possibly a daughter. In the 1870 census of Lincoln Co., TN, William Dillingham, age 68, is listed and just below him in the household is listed a Margaret, age 23, "keeping house" (probably a daughter). I did not see another Peggy/Margaret in the 1860 Lincoln Co., TN, census household who might be the daughter at age 13, but the page very hard to read.
