I am researching the descendants of John and Mary Helen (Duke) GORDON. In my database, I have data which I am trying ton confirm and notice that there is some dispute about the GUSEMAN family members and their ancestry. If you can add or correct any of the following information, please let me know.
Elizabeth GORDON (1761-1834), daughter of John GORDON, married Christopher GUSEMAN in July 1777 in Frederick Co MD.
I am wondering who Christopher's father was.
My data shows that they had 2 children:
1) Godfrey GUSEMAN (b: 1779 in MD) - married Margaret Carroll
2) Elizabeth GUSEMAN (b:1781) - married James WELLS in 1799 in Monogalia, W VA. and they lived in Greene Co, PA.
I have found contradictory information about the children of James and Elizabeth (in Leckey and other family trees). I am trying to sort out the fate of their daughter Sarah, born in 1812 in PA.
In some cases, their daughter is listed as Sarah WELLS, married to Isaiah STEELE.
In other cases, their daughter is listed as SARAH ELIZABETH WELLS, married to Jesse WORLEY.
I don't live in PA and haven't found any records to confirm the correct information.
I am also searching for information about Priscilla WELLS, daughter of James and Elizabeth WELLS. I do not know birth or death dates or a spouse.
If you can help with any of these questions, I would appreciate it.
