This is my gg grandfather. He immigrated to Cherry Ridge, PA, and applied for US citizenship on Sept 11, 1868. The 1870 census lists his wife as Anna, born in 1836 in Switzerland, but the 1880 census says her name was Barbara and that she was born in 1836 in Bavaria. The Haggarty children were Katie, Henry, John, Charles, Matilda, Frederick, William (my great grandfather), Hannah, Agusta, and Lizzie. Can anyone help me shed light on the apparent discrepancy regarding the mother? Perhaps I can get definite dates and/or places for either parent's birth or marriage.
Family stories have it that at some time, the surname was changed from Hechrich, but I don't know where or when the change took place, and I'm not sure of the spelling of the original name.
