Mary, was Ambrose Kim married more than once?The only marriage I know of is to Elizabeth Maria Wedge Mason in 1855. (Her second marriage.)She would have been 36 at time of second marriage and I would like to know if they had any children other than John.
Elizabeth Maria Wedge's father was Ira Wedge b. abt. 1791 in Warren CT d. 1824 in Belpre, OH.He was m. abt. 1810 to Elizabeth Leach b. 1794 CT d. 1882 Coolville, OH.(I have this information from a Wedge contributor to genforum.)That's how I found out that Maria's first husband, John Buck Mason d. 1852 and Maria m. Ambrose Kim 1855.
I just discovered the Kim connection this summer and have not had a chance to research it.I posted a query on the Mason forum, so I'm pursuing that line also.A daughter from Maria's first marriage to John Buck Mason was Mary Elizabeth b. 1839 who m. my g grandfather David Chevalier.The Chevaliers came to Meigs County in early 1800's and are well-known and traced back to Normandy.
We need to find out if Ambrose was married previously and if you are descended from his marriage to Maria Wedge Mason or another marriage.Anyway this is a start.It seems like Kims are from Switzerland? and then came to Ohio from Pittsburg??Meigs County rootsweb has been very good, but I get a lot of my information from films at the Family History Center (censuses and other records).I will let you know when I find more stuff.
