She was in the infirmary from January 11, 1859 to discharge in 1867. Eight years????

Looking for origins of James TARBERT, early pioneer in Harrison County, Ohio (before 1820). He was born April 4, 1784 in Pennsylvania (what town or county?) Who were his parents?

MCFADDEN, MOORE posted by Debbie Moore on Monday, June 22, 1998

Am researching MOOREs in Harrison County, Ohio, prior to 1840 and trying to sort them all out. The only positive info I have is my ancestor, Samuel MOORE, says he was born there in 1827 to Albert MOORE and Margaret MCFADDEN and that his parents were both born in Ireland. It is possible (through family tradition) that he was orphaned. I cannot find proof that Albert ever existed. There is a clue in the McFADDEN family line in the county history that a Margaret married a -- MOORE. I cannot find a marriage record in Ohio or Pennsylvania (the McFADDENs stayed in Pa for a brief time between immigration and settling in Ohio). The 1840 census shows a William MOORE (age 70-80) with a male (10-15). Perhaps Albert migrated as a child with father William, was married to Margaret either by a circuit rider minister or in a courthouse that burned down somewhere, and they both died by 1840, or even 1830. He never shows up in a census record by name, or with land transfers, or on a tombstone. Samuel was in the Civil War and I have built quite an extensive biography on him, but I would certainly like to go back further on this line. Anyone have any clues? Thanks, Debbie in western Ohio.

SPENCER, SPRINGER, SWEARINGTON, WORLEY, WRIGHT posted by Amy Noorian on Tuesday, June 23, 1998

Mary Ann WORLEY was born 1824 in Harrison Co. OH. She married Isaac SPENCER and a sister, Catherine born 1831 in OH, was living with her in Fulton Co. IL in 1850. From a biography of John B. WRIGHT of Carroll Co. OH, I believe Mary Ann is from the family of John WORLEY and Mary SPRINGER who had children Daniel, Michael, Joseph, Jacob, Akey, Catherine, Nancy, Mary Ann and Rebecca Jane. John WORLEY was from the family of Achor WORLEY and 3rd wife Elizabeth. One of his brothers was Akey WORLEY, born 1797 PA and died 1861 Carroll Co. OH. Akey's wife was Jane SWEARINGTON. Would like to know more about John WORLEY's family.
