Have discovered some of my own answers.Sophie was the daughter of Mary Ellen Simmons and Edward Pusey, granddaughter of Jacob Pusey (and Hannah Mendenhall?), and great-granddaughter of Joshua Pusey acc. to the back of some old photos rec. discovered.
Jacob was b. 6-10-1792 and d 3-5-1871.Besides his son Edward, other children included Pheobe/Phebe b.1828, Joshua b.1842, Lydia b.?, Mary, Joseph M. and Sarah Wayne
Still a lot of holes.Can anyone help me trace this back to Caleb or William Pusey?
