Eliza Pitsenbarger's of Nicholas County, WV

  of 85

I have been researching an Eliza Pitsenbarger of Nicholas County, WV and have run into a bit of a problem. The problem is that there seems to be 3 of them.

1. Eliza Pitsenbarger, b.Oct. 3, 1851, d. Feb. 1, 1925. According to her death certificate, she was the daughter of Abraham Pitsenbarger and Nancy McClung and married Richard Martin on July 30, 1874.

2. Eliza Pitsenbarger, b. Dec. 1, 1839, d. July 1, 1930. According to her death certificate her parents were also Abraham Pitsenbarger and Nancy McClung. I have been told that her parents were actually Peter Pitsenbarger and Elizabeth Amick and she went to live with Uncle Abe after the death of her mother. She married Jackson or Jacob Trout.

3. Eliza Pitsenbarger (???). She is said to have been born in 1830, but according to the 1870 census, her age of 45 would put her birth about 1825. She married John Nutter after Dec. 1847 and in 1897.

I believe after everything that I have found, the first two Eliza's are correctly (for the most part) documented. However, I would like to know who this third Eliza "Pitsenbarger" who married John Nutter is.

If you have any information, please, please help me out.
