In Reply to: Re: John Figart 1802 PA by Sarah Figart-Martin of 73

Dear Sarah,

I am a cousin of Mary Figart Shimojima and I printed a booklet on the John Figart Family back in 1987.

We too are searching for more information on our Figart family.

John Figart was born in 1802, place unknown. His wife, Elizabeth ... was born in 1804, place unknown. They had 10 children: 1) Benjamin Franklin Figart, born on May 26, 1826 at Blair Co., PA.; 2) Elizabeth Figart, born in 1828; 3) David Figart born in 1830; 4) Susan Figart born in 1833, married to Caleb Copenhaver; 5) Mary Figart, born in 1834; 6) Sarah Figart born August 10, 1835 and died on October 26, 1861; 7) Ann Figart born in 1837, married ....McCormick; 8) Margaret Figart born in 1839, married to Christian Walters; 9) John Figart born in 1841; 10) Frederick Figart born in 1844.

It is unknown whether they had any other children or not.

Benjamin Franklin Figart and Elizabeth Jane Miller born July 31, 1827 at Altoona, PA, married on Dec. 25, 1852. They had 6 children. 1) Jacob M. Figart born in 1853, 2) Emma J. Figart born June 5, 1855 at Figart (now Blandburg) PA. married to George Thomas Barr she died on July 2, 1948. 3) Ella Figart born on July 18, 1857 at Figart, PA, married to Domer McCartney. 4) Alonzo Steele Figart (my g grandfather) born Nov. 24, 1858 at Figart, PA (I have much more information on this family), died on Jan. 9, 1940 at Eagle, Idaho; 5) Elizabeth Figart born June 22, 1860 at Figart, PA, died on Nov. 15, 1925 was married to Samuel McMillan who was born in Ayershire, Scotland.; 6) Sarah Alice Figart born on April 14, 1862 at Figart. She died on Aug. 5, 1937 at Blandburg, PA. She was married to William Perry Long. (I have some cousins from this family that I have contact with.)

I also have alot more information on some of these families. My grandmother, Daisy Figart Chase is the youngest daughter of Alonzo Steele Figart and will be 94 in May of this year.

She did talk about another George Figart who could have been the son of one of John Figart's brothers perhaps, whom we don't know anything more about.

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any more assistance at:

Grace and peace,
Charles W. Chase
