I'm looking for someone who may recognize the names James Thomson (also listed as Thomas), Elizabeth Hinebaugh and/or Conrad Show. I'm looking for information on James Thomson. The family story passed down through generations is:
James Thomson was the only surviving member of his family. He was born in Maryland in 1815 and his whole family died of cholera when he was 2 years old. He was taken in by Conrad Show (Shough). They left Maryland, stopping in Pennsylvania where they met up with Elizabeth Hinebaugh. Show convinced her to go with them and be their housekeeper and they proceeded to go to Ohio and settled there in Hardin County, Ohio. James eventually married Elizabeth in Hardin County, Ohio in 1835 and they raised their family there.
My huband's family are descendents from James and Elizabeth. They are buried in the local cemetery along with others I have seen who have the surname Show and Hinebaugh. There are still Hinebaughs and Thomsons around here today.
If any of these names sound familiar, please contact me as I am trying to locate the names of James' siblings and parents. No one has been able to locate them.
I also have a list of names who were members of the local church that James and Elizabeth were constituent members of, some of which I have seen listed on this site.
