I have the following information from a family bible of Ruth McKeever Carlson:
John Flaharty m. unknown Thomas Flaharty m. Hannah S. J. Weikert (Weigert) Mary Flaharty m. John Grey McKeever, Jr. Ruth Irene McKeever m. Fred Albert Carlson
Subsequent research based on the information above, census, and Historical Newspaper Collection from Ancestry.com indicate the following:
John Flaharty b. about 1824 Maryland m. Rebecca Weddle (b. about 1824 Maryland) Frederick County, Maryland May 25, 1843 d. Cumberland Township, Adams County, PA December 8, 1865.Children:Thomas, David, Mary C., Taylor Zachariah, Rebecca, and Joshua.
Thomas Flaharty b. about 1846 Maryland m. Hannah Susan Jane Weikert/Weigert (b. 1847 PA) d. before 1918 Children:George T., Mary R., Moses M.
Mary R. Flaharty b. 1873 Gettysburg, PA m. John Grey McKeever (b. abt. 1864 Washington, D.C.)d. October 28, 1950 Columbus, OH.
Thomas Flaharty was in the 21st PA Calvary and received Civil War Pension Feb. 1891.His widow, Hannah S. J. Flaharty received widow benefits 1917.
You indicate that your George Thomas was also a Civil War veteran.Perhaps he was the brother of my Thomas.Do you know who the father of your George Thomas Flaharty was?
