Re: Eutsey ancestors
My great-grandmother was Bertha's older sister, Annie Mary Catherine (Coleman) Lucas. Who were your grandparents? I have some children for Bertha and Otto, but nothing beyond that.
I have pictures of Bertha and Otto in separate pictures when they were younger, and one of them together were they were older. Also one of Bertha when she was visiting my grandmother with 3 of her sisters in 1946. My grandparents lived in Baltimore City, MD, and Bertha, Margaret, Florence, and Cora came to visit my grandmother there.
The message I was replying to was by Barbara Desjardins, and she had/has a website. I think I left a message on her website, but she never replied. So I thought I would see if she would reply on this Message Board, but she never did.
Barbara is the one who had the maiden name of Margaret Micklas and that she died in Martinsburg on 21 Oct 1881. Also that her husband, Carle (who may have become Charles), died 25 Aug 1849.
The last place I tracked Margaret to was living with her son, Charles, in OH in the 1880 Census. I think maybe when her daughter, Catharine, was widowed on 13 July 1881, Margaret may have moved to WV to live with her.
In the 1840 Census, Carle Youtsey lived in Lurgan Township, Franklin County, PA, just three households away from David Coleman, who was the father of John Coleman.
In the 1850 Census, the widowed Margaret Utzy was living two households away from her married daughter, Catharine, in Lurgan Township.
In the 1860 Census as Mary Eutzy, she was living with her married son, Charles Eutzy, in Lurgan Township, and her daughter, Catharine, lived four households away.
Catharine (Eutzy) Coleman was born in Germany. In the 1860 Census, Catherine said she was born in Germany. In the 1870 Census, she was born in Switzerland, which I just now noticed for the very first time. In the 1880 Census, her son, Harry Coleman says his mother was born in Saxony. I never could find John Coleman and Catharine in the 1880 Census.
In the 1880 Census, Catharine's younger brother, Charles, says he was born in Germany. His mother says that she and both of her parents were born in Germany.
I have some more on the Dugan family.
I possibly have traced the family of Samuel Williamson Dugan's mother, Margaret (Williamson) Small Dugan, back to Willem Davidszen (died pre 20 May 1695) who lived in Flatlands, NY. The Dutch followed a patronymic naming system, and his children all assumed the patronymic surname of Willemson, which became Williamson.
