They had seven children, Elizabeth, Catherine, Barbara, Adam, George, John and Conrad. John married Sarah HARPOLE. They had eleven children. The fifth son, Elias R. LOUGH, was born in Pendleton in 1815 and died in Randolph in 1886. In 1843 he married Dorcas, daughter of George and Ruth (MORGAN) WEESE. Children, Angeline, Rebecca, John Vernon, Leslie J. and George Morgan.
