Sarah Goughenour/Gochnauer, born Mar 1831/33 in PA
It has been many years since I posted here about my Sarah Goughenour-- but when I was searching again back in December, I found her in some census records with her last name spelled GOCHNAUER!
Maybe now someone will be able to help us with more information---
Sarah GOUGHENOUR/GOCHNAUER married John H. BEAN and they lived in Lancaster, PA.
Sarah's father was Jacob GOCHNAUER b. 1806 PA and listed in the 1850 Upper Leacock, Lancaster, PA census with the following other children (no wife listed)-
Henry GOCHNAUER b. abt 1829 PA
Jacob GOCHNAUER b. abt 1844 PA
Mary GOCHNAUER b. abt 1846 PA
There is a big gap between kids here- 21, 17, 6, and 4 were the ages of kids....maybe there were others in the middle that weren't home that day?
I wonder if Sarah's mother's name was Mary- she named one of her children after her husband's mother, and Sarah named another daughter Mary- which was her sister's name also---maybe it was her mother's name, too?
I can't remember if I've looked for them in other census reports...guess I'll have to go back and do that.
