Dear Nancy, My problem is this:My information says that Jonathan Hartsock (my gggrandfather) was married first to Elizabeth Pine (b. 1833 and died 1855, the same year as the birth of a daughter, who remains nameless.)Then he married Elizabeth Lamp (b. 1827) who bore him 3 sons: Noah, Joseph and Jacob.
In my further research I could not find parents for either Elizabeth Pine or Elizabeth Lamp.I did get a reply however from a Genforum query, that there was record of a Hartsough (slight change in spelling which also occured with my ggrandfather) having married a Mariah Jane Lamp, daughter of Jacob Lamp and Catherine Stacker, with the almost the same birth and death dates and a record of a female birth in the same year of her death.The replier noted that this was is too much of a coincidence to be ignored, and I agreed. Could it be that Jonathan first married Mariah Jane Lamp and then Elizabeth Pine?Your records seem to indicate that, although I don't know why the second Elizabeth would have said her name was Lamp when in fact it was Pine.A second marriage perhaps? Any thoughts?
