LOWERY, LOWRY, PICHEM, PICHIM posted by Mary Jean Lowry Bivins on Thursday, February 17, 2000

I am researching Robert LOWRY/LOWERY and his wife Ruth PICHIM/PICHEM, married April 29, 1812 in Jefferson Co., OH. I am wondering if/where Robert was buried as he died in 1830 in Jefferson Co., OH. At that time, his wife migrated with #4 son...William, and his wife, Martha, to Clark Co., IL. I don't know in which cemetery Robert was buried or if there is even a record of such death. He was from Washington Co., PA; birthdate abt. late 1780's? I have reached a stalemate on Robert!

MILLER, MOFFAT, MOFFITT, MUNCEY, MUNCIE, MUNCY, MUNSEY, PONTZIOUS posted by Jeff Taylor on Monday, February 21, 2000

I'm researching Levi MUNCY (or MUNCEY, MUNSEY, MUNCIE), born about 1810 in Pennsylvania. He married Mary MILLER in Jefferson Co. OH in 1834. Their children included David (born abt 1836), Ada J. (abt 1837), Moses (abt 1840), Margaret N. (abt 1845), Mary E. (abt 1847), and Levi Jr. (1849). All of the children were born in Ohio, with at least Levi Jr. being born in Belmont Co. OH. Levi Sr. died about 1853 and his wife Mary died about 1860. Levi Jr. eventually ended up in Louisa Co. IA, Mills Co. IA, and Sedgwick Co. CO. He married Georgianna PONTZIOUS (pron. "Poncy"). There was an old Levi MUNCY ("Muncey") who died in Belmont Co. OH in 1850. He may have been the father or an uncle of Levi (born abt 1810), but there is no Levi mentioned as a child in his will. It's possible that my Levi was a son of John MUNCEY and Martha MOFFAT (or MOFFITT). I'm confident my Levi was part of the big Francis Muncy family of Washington Co. PA-Brooke Co. VA/WV-and Ohio Co. VA/WV (all close to Jefferson Co.), but I don't know how he fits in! Thanks.
