Hi, April, Edie and others
These Eamighs are surely hard to sort out. Now I will weigh in to the water. I am the great granddaughter of Geoge W. and Susan Kagarise Eamigh through Mandilla Eamigh Ingram and her son, Kenneth Ingram and here is what I can contribute. In 1973 while on a trip to Altoona, PA I visited Asbury Cemetery with my father and his Aunt Pearl Eamigh Moorehead. Aunt Pearl took me through the cemetery and pointing to three headstones two of which where unreadable said, "that is where father George's first wives are buried". I immediately began looking for information to support what she had said. I found the gentleman who had the records for the cemetery. Unfortunately he only had the plot maps (no other records). The plot map showed that George W. Eamigh in fact owned the plot where those headstones were but nothing else.
After many phone calls to relatives of those first two wives here is what I learned. George was married first to #1 IDA PLUMMER, and their children were Ida May (b. 1859) and Margaret A. (b. 13 April 1863). George then married wife #1 SARAH ROBINS (b. 1842) and their child was Clara Blanche (b. 26 Dec. 1869. This information matches the information from the 1870 Blair County census. By 1870 Ida Plummer had died, George was married to Sarah and they were raising the three children.
I also learned that in fact three children John (d. 1880), Frank (d. 1891, and Anne Margaret nee Short (d. 1936) where children of Susan Kagarise (George's #3 wife) and an unknown father, apparently not George's children. The third headstone at Asbury Cemetery is that of John and is marked "John son of Susan Eamigh" with no dates.
Let's keep in touch all.....there's is so much more to know. Happy hunting, Cheryl
