Looking for info on the parents and siblings of Margaret Theola Eichelburger b 1889 and died 1912. Also interested in anything on Margaret's children. She married Harry Albert BENNA b abt 1880. Their children were Albert, Nora, and Nellie. Nellie Mae Benna was born in 1906 Cumberland, MD and was placed in an orphanage in Loysville, PA, probably at the age of 6 when her mother died.
The Eichelburgers and Bennas may have moved to Bedford County, PA or may have been from there originally as Nellie, prior to her death in the 1970's, had photos of some Benna family members. Nellie married James Brown, son of Michael D. Brown and Margaret Lodge (died prior to 1940). I have sketchy info on them as well.
I did find mention of a Margaret T. Benna in the will of Amanda Eichelburger, listing Margaret as a daughter. This is pretty much all I have as far as a clue to Margaret Eichelburger's possible family.
Can anyone help?
Donna Fox, ggrand-daughter of Margaret Eichelburger.
