My GGGrandfather died in the 1860s. His widow Harriet Carr Holt married Mark A. Yerger. According to his pension papers Mark was born in Montgomery CO PA. When he applied for a disability pension in 1876, he lived in Crooked Hill, Montgomery Co. By 1879 he had moved to Philly. In a family Bible, his birth date is shwn as May 27, 1843. Strangely, the other people listed are all Smiths! Andrew Smith born January 7th 1827, Elizabeth Smith born March 25, 1830, Jacob Smith born Marh 16 1833, Mary Smith born April 16, 1835. Another entry (these are just written on the front end papers) says, Jacob Smith and Catherine Watt was marit on the 9th March in the year of our lord 1828." I presume that Jacob and Catherine were the parents of all of the above. I have no idea how Mark Yerger fits into the Smith family. If anyone needs info on Mark's later life, I can provide some--he lived with my grandparents William and Rebecca Holt in Collingdale PA until his death.
