I have a Kough Bible, purchased from an online dealer, that lists the initials and birth dates for the Edmond Kough family. I believe Edmond may have been a brother to Washington (1832-1913) and Alexander Kough, sons of George Kough and Phoebe Chambers. I would like to exchange information with anyone with an interest in these families.
The family record lists Edmond born 19 December 1835, M. A. born 27 May 1836, J. W. born 8 Sept 1856, B. J. born 9 September 1858, J. (or I) B. born 19 October 1860, M. E. born 29 April 1863, S. A. born 30 October 1865, M. A. born 1867.
I believe this Bible belonged to this family listed on the 1870 CENSUS, CLEARFIELD CO., Beccaria Twp., : Edmund B. Kough, age 34, Jacob W. 14, Barbara 11, Oretta B. 10, Mary E. 7, Sarah A. 5, Martha A. 3 and a housekeeper, Harriett Smith 25 and her two sons, Andrew W. 8 and David 5.
Records in the Coalport, PA Library of the Crossroads Cemetery, Beccaria Township lists Mary Kough, wife of E. B., died 28 September 1869.
Also recorded in the Bible - " E. B. Kough married Caroline Grumian in Clay Twp. 2 March 1876. Witness J. Wagoner, Eli E. Shore, J.P."
The 1880 CENSUS, HUNTINGDON CO., Clay Twp., E.D. 203, page 349A lists E. B. Kough 45; wife Carrie Kough 38; stepsons, David Griman 14 and Wesley Griman 13; his daughter, Alice 11; their daughter, Ella 1 and son William 3 months.
