Re: Welcome All Colebaugh Researchers
I've been researching Colebaugh for 25 years. Mine come from Bedford Co PA and the original spelling was Kohlbach which means dark complected.The orginal ancestor was supposedly a Hessian mercendary.
There was a Michael Colebaugh in BedfordCo
in 1790.In 1830 there were three, I think,
John, George and Jacob. There was a Peter who lived in Philadelphia.George is mine.
Married Sarah Stiger and moved to Miami Co, OH and then on to McLean Co, Ill.
There is also a Coolbaugh family from Bradford Co.There is also a Cobaugh/Colbaugh family from Tenn.
My own family spelled it Colebaugh, Colbaugh and Cobaugh.
Would love to correspond.
