MCCUMSEY, MOORE posted by Judy Pohhoe on Tuesday, February 3, 1998

I am searching for my great great great grandfather Thomas MCCUMSEY and his family who lived in Mercer County prior to moving to Goshen County, Indiana. They are shown on the 1850 census records for Goshen, however, I know that they were living in Mercer County, OH, before that. Thomas had a large family. He was married to Phoebe (I am trying to locate her last name). Thomas was born about 1787 in PA, probably Lancaster County.
His father was Robert MCCUMSEY. Robert was my 4th great grandfather. I need to know more about him, too. He came from Lancaster County, PA to Ohio. I am also searching for his wife..I believe he is buried in Mercer County somewhere.
Thomas and Phoebe's children included William, Robert (Born about 1827 and also my great great grandfather.), Richard, Abram, Isaac, Rachel, Benjamin, John, Arameta. I think that Robert was born in Ohio, too, but I am not sure. Robert married Mary MOORE. My great grandfather Luke was one of his sons. I am also searching for Mary MOORE's family.
