Does anyone have any further information on a particular Benjamin Covert and/or his wife Elizabeth, née Young? Their information:
Occupation: Ship steward
Born: February 1844, Ohio
Died: probably 1908 or 1909, perhaps in Pennsylvania
Married: 1881 or 1882, to Elizabeth Young, with whom he had a son, William (born 1882)
Born: October 1859 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Died: in or after 1920
Parents: father was from Prussia (now mostly Germany) and Alsace Lorraine. If her father was indeed from Prussia, her maiden name would very likely have been spelled "Jung".
William Covert's death certificate
1900, 1910, 1920 US Census for Pennsylvania
Pittsburgh City Directory 1905-1910
I have been unsuccessful locating Benjamin and Elizabeth's death certificates, finding them in the 1880 Census, or determining if Benjamin left a last will and testament. I have also checked works on Coverts in the US. Benjamin is not mentioned. Any help if finding out anything more about this couple, my great-great-grandparents, would be wonderful. Thank you in advance.
