thanks for the info.. i know according to her obituary she had six children, what i dont understand i presumed Thomas James Piatt her first husband was dead that is why she married my gggrandfather john lennington and moved to missouri..
the story goes she left her children in ohio because her new husband would not take them with her he took the dogs instead.i always figured her first husband was dead.. her and john lennington married in 1868 the same year her daughter margaret did..
i live near her grave here in missouri. it's a very cute old country cemetery out in the country near an old old church. very peaceful.I am trying to get family and friends to help me add her name to her husband's stone for she has no stone but she's buried by his side. her obituary told me this.her death date is sept. 26, 1913 in pike county missouri her birth august 30, 1828 guernsey co. ohio. hope this helps.
