Memorial #77717494 Margaret Hunter Christy
Hi Laurie,
That is so odd to have two women with the same name and birth and death dates. I do not have an image of the headstone. I can also see that there is a James J. Christy also listed with the same dates in the Annondale cemetery. Lois Bates has done a LOT of work on Pennsylvania cemeteries, so definitely contact her and ask her about this.

I can tell you that Margaret #77717494 can be found in her husband James Christy's household in Kinsman, Ohio, in 1880, and that she predeceased him.

I can also find another Margaret Christy married to a John G. Christy in the 1870 and 1880 censuses in Concord, Butler, PA. However, the birth year from the census is 1826 rather than 1822, and Concord township is 11 miles from the cemetery, so you must judge for yourself if this is likely to be the one memorialized in the the Annondale cemetery.

It seems more likely to me that the entries for the Kinsman cemetery are more likely to be correct for the exact dates, BUT ... this merits research.

I live near Seattle, so I can't get headstone pictures for you, but let me know if there is anything else I can do!

RE: Thomas S Wilson
Sorry about just getting back to you now. First off you definitely need a new picture of the monument. I took that photo years ago when I was just starting out. I now work with the light that gives a much better picture. As far as I know that's the only Thomas in that location but when spring arrives I'll put you on "my-to-do-list" and comb the area and see what I can come up with. Cheryl

RE: Thomas Wilson question
I am glad to help you in any way that I can. My source was a notarized, typewritten copy by Harry Switzer in 1969 transcribed by him from an original "WILSON FAMILY" which was handwritten by Amariah Wilson in 1884. It is my understanding that Amariah wrote more than one copy and they were not identical. As for John Wilson, Amariah wrote that he was born in 1810 in Ohio and married "a girl the name of Tidball" and they "had many children".
John's brother Thomas was born "in A.D. 1812 in Ohio, and he married a girl the name of Goochy. They had many children."

Good luck with your research,

RE: Thomas Wilson question
I have Thomas Wilson, son of James Wilson and grandson of Thomas Wilson and Nancy McBride, as having been born in 1812 and married to a woman last name of Goochy (per his Uncle Amariah Wilson). I hope this helps.
