According to the History of Fayette Co., PA.,p. 458, Christian Rist (or Reist) had three daughters, one of whom married Thomas Boyd, and another married Simon Roughcorn. The third remained single. Simon Roughcorn (or Ruffcorn) and his wife (Mary or Catherine) were grandparents of the William Washington in Karen's genealogy who married Barbara Rist. The Simon Ruffcorn above was a veteran of the American Revolution, and his estimated birth date is 1740-50. Are these people a part of your family, Karen, or of others who are corresponding on this forum? Thank you for any information you may send.
