Covert family lines of Red House Putnam Co W.V.

I am doing the Peter Covert and wife Susan nee Croup family line that lived in Red House Putnam Co W.V.

Peter was br
Sept 9 1824 in Pennsylvania
Oct 10 1907 in Putnum Co West Virginia

Susan was br in

Nov 15 1846 in Pennsylvania Death
March 16 1921 in West Virginia


The Democratic Herald page 3 15 July 1868 Covert CROOP June 23 1868 By Rev J H Furitz Mr Peter Covert of Fairview tp to Miss Susan CROOP of Butler tp

I have found many obits of Peter and Susan Covert's children and will share with others doing this line. Plus maiden names of wives and children of their children

I am trying to prove that Peter Covert was brother to Elizabeth Campbell nee Covert Elizabeth's daughter Rachel Campbell was my G-G-G grandmother. By proving this I hope to find the parents of Elizabeth Campbell nee Covert.

Peter was found in the 1850 census living with Elizabeth and family

1850 United States Federal Census

Going on census info found I believe that the Peter Covert found in this census is the same one that married Susan CROOP.

I have put a Peter Covert family tree on Ancestry to help me in finding out info on him Anyone that can connect to this Covert line in W.V. can contact me to get an invite to view the tree and take from it anything they might need.

Thank you
