This looks like a dormant thread, but I thought I would ask in case someone is monitoring.
I am just starting my research and am having trouble confirming the parents of John Hiram Eighmey born abt. 1866, probably in NY, but possibly in Pennsylvania (reports vary). I believe his parents to be Daniel Eighmey (b. 1828)and Elizabeth Eighmey (Dimmick, b. 1824)m. 1852 originally from NY, later residence of OH, returning to NY. John Hiram Eighmey is father to my grandfather Paul William Eighmey 1908-1959. I cannot confirm that the John Eighmey listed in the 1880 census as child of Daniel is the same person as middle names are not listed.
Any help would be appreciated.
