Re: Yaw/ Yeaw/ Yaugh lookups - Margaret Yaw

In Reply to: Yaw/ Yeaw/ Yaugh lookups by Lee Ann Morris of 290

Lee Ann,

If you're still doing lookups, could you help me with the following?
- Margaret Yaw - b. abt. 1807 in PA, moved to Franklin Co., IN before 1829. m. Joseph Smart in 1829. m. Thomas Cummins in 1859.
- Isaac Yaw - b. abt. 1818/1819 in PA, living in Franklin Co, IN as of the 1840 census. Living in Decatur Co., IN by the 1850 census.
I assume Margaret and Isaac are siblings. No other traces of Yaw family members can be found in the general area in Indiana.
Does your book show these people or any Yaw families that were in PA? Though it might be a red herring for me to follow, in the 1850 census, several neighboring Franklin Co, IN families came from Westmoreland Co., PA. Supposedly, these people were of Scots-Irish descent.
Thanks!
