|Research began many years ago as family members met each 4th of July at the Greystone Farms in central Pennsylvania.The family Bible was located there and it was so interesting to me that two sisters from the LAKE family married 2 BOYD brothers .It was several years later that it was discovered that the preceding generation had also had a brother and sister from one family marry a sister and brother from the McGOGNEY family.|
One family story that has been the center of my research involves the flu pandemic of 1918 in the Mt Lebanon area of the city of Pittsburgh as many of the usual sources of information for a family were snuffed out as the disease destroyed families.
The recent stumbling block has come with the discovery from family sources that my gr-gr grandfather was 'bound out'in the Elizabeth,Pa (Allegheny Co.) area to a family there.Since we do not know the families name we are unable to uncover the parents of MOSES LAKE.
