My Sarah was the daughter of David Z. Albaugh of Carson Valley, PA, near present day Altoona. Her grandfather came to the Carson Valley area sometime around 1800, from Frederick County Maryland. Sarah apparently lived in Iowa for a few years in the 1850's, since her eldest daughter was born there. She and her husband Levi then returned to Pennsylvania, probably Cambria County, where her brother had taken their father into his home. Sarah's husband Levi enlisted in Cambria County. After the war, they went to Iowa again, near what is now Cedar Rapids. Sarah and Levi are buried in the Dunkard Cemetery near Toddville, about five miles north of Cedar Rapids. I am sure we are distantly related, if your Albaughs are from Maryland. I happen to live there now, and enjoy stopping by the grave of Anna Dimeda (Demuth) Albaugh, with its small worn stone in the cemetery of the Chapel Lutheran Church on Daysville Road. Anna was the immigrant mother of much of the Albaugh clan, I believe.
