Here is what I have on SHROUFE:
Sebastian Shroufe married Agnes OWENSThey had a son named Adam who married Hannah ?Adam and Hannah had a daughter Nancy b abt 1796.MILITARY:Sebastian was employed as a spy during the Rev. War around 1780. (from "The Tenmile Country and its Pioneer Families:a Genealogical History of the Upper Monongahela Valley" by Howard L. Leckey).Nothing further on this line.
Nicholas Shroufe b abt 1800 m Catherine MC GOVERN or MC GOWAN abt 1826 in Adams Co, OH.They had children:Catherine b abt 1827 m Jacob/Joab SHICK, Elizabeth b abt 1828 (this may be the Elizabeth living with David SHICK in the 1850 Brown Co, OH census.), Lavina, Margaret b 30 Aug 1834 m Rev Peter Woodruff SHICK, Francis b abt 1844.
