Elizabeth Calvert MOSSMAN b 12 October 1808 d 14 May 1835, buried Rocky Glen Cem, Adamsville, Crawford, Pennsylvania (Records of Rocky Glen Cemetery and Nathaniel Calvert's will dated 11 May 1848, reg 14 Aug 1848, Crawford County Will Book B pa 312)
Elizabeth married James MOSSMAN. Presumably he could be a descendent of John MOSSMAN and possibly of William Herdman Mossman and Sarah Gillis.
However, I have no real data on this James Mossman intermarried with Elizabeth Calvert. I did find this in the 1850 census:
1850 U S Census, West Salem township, Mercer, Pennsylvania page 409 taken 1st day of -------- [unreadable from my copy, possibly Sept]
Dwelling 2252 family 2274 James [T; or I?] Mossman age 50 [about 1800], malefarmer$400 value of real estateborn Ohio Sarah Mossman age 34 [about 1816] female, born Ohio Asher Mossman age 14 [about 1836] male born Ohio Sylvester Mossman age 13 [about 1837] male born Ohio Leander Mossman age 4 male [about 1846]born Ohio Robert Mossman age 2 male [about 1848] born Ohio
Note: To me, this has the look of a second marriage complete with two more children being born as the wife is younger and the span between births is 9 years, a bit unusual back then. Well, now that I just put in the calculated birth years, it would appear that these cannot be Elizabeth Calvert's children. That leads me to wonder how accurate the ECM tombstone reading is, and/or the recording of the boy's ages. This may not be the correct James Mossman either, but it just seems to fit the circumstances of a deceased first wife. The will of Nathaniel definitely mentions "my daughter Elizabeth's heirs, which is now dead". Has anybody else seen another candidate for the right James Mossman?
