|William Long||RE: Margaret Donahey Huff Galbraith|
Thanks Anna for your reply. There were several Zacheus B. Huffs. My Zacheus was born in 1798 and was married to Margaret Donahey in 1820. There was another Zacheus born 1829, who was a nephew. And then this one appears to be another one.
I don't know about sons of the older sons of William Huff who may have also named their son a Zach B. I would have to look this other Zach up who married Temperance.
I doubt he was divorced from Margaret as she continued to have children by the name of Huff after 1832, including my great great grandfather, and she is mentioned in the Huff family bible, "my dear mother Margaret Galbraith" with same exact death date you have. My gg grandfather Martin V. B. Huff is listed as a Galbraith in the census, but that was probably census taker error in 1850. And if Charles D. Galbraith had a child with Margaret in 1840, then it was out of wedlock because they didn't marry until 3 MAY 1842 by Ephriam Sears, J.P. I think I remember encountering that record of this other Zacheus B. and wondering to whom it belonged and I may figure that out some day. I have copies of a Huff genealogy from the Library of Congress done in the 1950s that contains first hand account from one of the Johnson relatives of this Zacheus and how he married Margaret "Donehy".
I would love to be placed in contact with relatives of Charles D. or some who may have a photograph of him.
Zacheus Biggs was the cousin of these Zacheus B. Huffs, and was a Federalist appointed by President Adams as a Treasury Officer. He was accused by Republicans of not making timely remittance to the Treasury. He later became Surveyor General of Ohio and surveyed the Seven Ranges and was appointed as the first Receiver of the Ohio Land Office in Steubenville.

My ggg grandmother was Margaret Donahey Huff Galbraith, daughter of James Donahey. She married (1) Zacheus Biggs Huff and (2) Charles D. Galbraith. Zack Huff died in 1840 while Margaret was pregnant with daughter Mary Ann. In 1842, she married Charles D. Galbraith, who became Mary Ann's stepfather. Maybe Mary Ann Huff did assume the name Galbraith, but the other older siblings kept the name Huff. My gg grandfather was Margaret's son Martin V. B. Huff. I have never seen a photo of Margaret or Charles and would love to see one. It seems like there must be photos of her somewhere. Margaret and Charles had a son Alvin Victor Galbraith, who was a Methodist minister. Governor Alvin Victor Donahey was named after him. I am interested to find more about Alvin and would enjoy seeing a photo of him also, and any of the other relatives. I think Charles father may have been Robert Galbraith? who names them in his will. Charles and Margaret cared for him in his later years.

You put that she was a cousin and I was wondering if she is the daughter of Lloyd Todd and was she born in Oklahoma?

Hi Anna I just gave them to you.
|Richard Wesley||JAMES & CATHERINE BARRET|
Hello Anna!! My g.g. grandparents are Henry Evan Garden (1835-1906) and Mary Barret (1842-1926). both buried at Witten Cemetery. I was going through my Grandmother Garden's papers and photos which have been buried in a storage shed since 1995. I found a photo of Mary Barret Garden (which I will scan and post on her memorial) and on the back it states there is a monument for her father James Barret (who married Catherine Clark) in Sistersville, West Virginia. I checked out the cemeteries of Tyler County, but did not find a James Barret. In fact there are SEVERAL cemeteries on the Sistersville area....Do you have any idea where James' monument might be located?
