RE: Slaybaugh
Wow! Thanks for the information! You've done some impressive tracing! I didn't pursue the Slaybaugh line since it's not my direct line, but I do see that name a lot in the Adams's County newspapers of old.

Happy hunting to you!

I read now in your profile that you're researching the Slaybaugh family. I have numerous lines originating in Adams County. I have a Slaybaugh ancestor you might be interested in--Howard Jesse Slaybaugh, born in 1852 in Adams County, died 1922 in Hershey, buried in Bendersville Cemetery. FindAGrave memorial 49700891. He married my 2nd great-grand aunt, Mary J. Stahl, in Gettysburg in 1893. They had 2 sons, Elias & Jesse.

I have a bit more if you're related to these Slaybaughs.

Amos and Anna Maginley
Thank you so much for these photos of their headstones. I really appreciate the time and effort you had to put into taking these photos.

Is it possible that you could read how old he was when he died. It is important because I am trying to match him to someone in my McGinley family. Anna's surname was McGinley, not Maginley. I suspect the same will be true for Amos as the McGinleys used the name Amos for the late 1600s through the 1800s, as did the families they married into like mine, the Miller family.

Hello again Erica,
Thank you so very much for your generosity in transferring Margaret E. Taughinbaugh Deatrick to my care. I have now successfully "reunited" her, & as more information is found I will add it to OUR memorial.
Your willingness to share is much appreciated.
With regards and sincerest thanks,
