My grandmother, Lucy Van Deman, nee Johnsonbaugh, was born in Caroll County Indiana in June, 1863. Her father was John H. Johnsonbaugh born April 11, 1831 in Pennsylvania and died September 13, 1913 in Monticello, White County, Indiana. John was married four times. His first wife was Sarah Shaferby whom he had four children. Elizabeth "Lib" (Mrs. John Hoagland and Lucy Ann (Mrs. James W. Van Deman) survived him. His fourth wife, Mrs. Eliza Shaw, were married in May, 1907. She was a civil War widow that he met at the Indiana State Soldiers Home outside Lafayette, Indiana, near Battleground. John was a veteran of the Civil War (Co.B of the 142nd Indiana)
Does anyone know his relationship to Henry Johnsonbaugh whose biography is listed in the book entitled, "Counties of White and Pulaski, Indiana, 1883?"
Also, does anyone have any recor of his second and third wives? Any additional information will be appreciated.
James E. Van Deman
