Seeking information on the family of Thomas Horton HARE, b. 1839 in Tarentum, Allegheny Co., PA; d. aft 1900.Thomas may have had two or three wives. His first wife seems to have been a Margaret Johnson who died before 1865 and we do not know IF they had children.
Robert Horton Hare is the great grandson of Alexander NEGLEY (thru Felix, and Margaret) of Pittsburgh, PA
His secondwife was Jessie ORINS, b. Abt 1845 in Missouri.With Jessie, Thomas had four known children:Margaret Negley Hare (1866-??);William Lafayette Hare (1868-1955);Jessie Orins Hare (1870-1872); and Ollie/OttieMilton Hare (1876- ??).
The 1880 censusfor Hamilton, CALDWELL Co., MO reports that the first twosurviving children wereborn in Pennsylvania, but Ollie/Ottie was born in Missouri.And itgives Thomas’ wife as AGNES, b. 1845 in PA (Could this be Jessie with a different name?)
Who was Margaret Johnson?What were her birth and death dates?Who were her parents?When (and if) did she marry Thomas Horton Hare?
Who were the parents of Jessie Orins?When and where did she die?Could she be the same person as Agnes, last name unknown, who was married to Thomas Horton Hare at the time of the 1880 census?
Finally, what happened to Margaret Negley Hare who shows up in the 1880 census, but not after that?Who did she marry and when?
