I sent email just in case went into spam folder. I haven't been able to figure out who those Harrison children belong to but if indeed we might speculate they are Elizabeth's then likely her married name Harrison perhaps? couldn't find anything.

good for you! I was hoping to find all the children and 'reunite' the family. glad you found Margaret. Thanks for letting me know!

I agree, often times the place of birth changes from census to census, as I am sure you've found, this time it gives VA where others are PA. ON 1870 census, I do think Helen is her Sarah Helen and Anna is her Willie Anna, and her Joseph. For more fun head-scratching confusion, take a look at the 1880 Ellen actually Helen and I think William M is daughter Willie who didn't marry until 1882. Also the 1870 census page has several Jackson families near Duncan and daughter Emma married John Jackson. Emma is 4 on 1860 census which would make her 14 on 1870 census. ????

Muldrew hammond
You're right I Mary married Thomas J. Hammond in 1863 so wouldn't be Mary Duncan 14 on 1870 census. That one slipped right by me. thanks! So then who is this other Elizabeth Duncan?

Duncan Muldrew message
Hi Jay, I appreciate your reviewing my info. I went back and looked it over and still feel the 1870 census is correct family. The daughter Helen is the Sarah Helen Duncan listed on 1860 census. And often the census taker uses name given for a parent for all the children. When indeed Mary E. is a Muldrew from Elizabeth's first marriage. It is confusing I agree. Anna and Joseph were born after the 1860 census and Joseph is a Duncan. I wish I could find James Muldrew and David E. Duncan!!! I am glad you are as detailed and thorough as I try to be striving for accuracy. The trouble we often encounter are different spellings and ages on census records, among other variations. Thanks very much!

RE: Hiatt family
Hi Jay,
As I remember this message arrived when I was away from home. Did I ever respond? (that is, send you a transcription of the Deed where John & wife Mary of PA sell their land in England?)

Daniel Craig
I have been researching my husbands family. There is a missing Daniel Craig born between 1820 and 1822. He was the son of William Craig (1786-1850) and Rebecca Story Craig (1792-1862). I just have that he was born in PA. Older siblings seem to have been born in Westmoreland Co and younger in Fayette Co. Parents moved to Clermont Cty, OH and are buried at Bullskin Cemetery there.

Son William Solomon Craig continued westward movement through Ind, Ill, and Iowa before permanently settling in Nebraska where he was buried in Best Cemetery in Madison County just west of Norfolk, NE.

Other siblings of Daniel were James Henry Craig, Andrew J Craig, Curtis M Craig, Hugh Craig, Edward Craig, Samuel Craig. Many are on FindaGrave right now.

I am stuck at this sibling and the parents in my family tree. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Samuel Haggard memorial
I got the information from the LDS database ( You don't have to be Mormon to use it and there is a lot of really good information about family links, dates, etc.

Yes, I have more info about John Hiatt, and his home in England. Could we please communicate directly, not through F-A-G or Ancestry?
