Generation One

 

1. Peter B. Haught, census name Peter B. Haut,[1] b. Sep- -1809,[2] [In the1920 Census, son David Haught stated his father's birthplace as Pennsylvania and his mother's as West Virginia; but in the several censuses that included Peter B. Haught himself, he provided his own birthplace as Virginia. This is likely in present-day West Virginia, probably Monongalia County near the Pennsylvania border.], d. Jun-14-1883 in Doddridge Co, WV,[3] buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,[4] census 1880 in West Union District, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1870 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1860 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA, census 1850 in Barbour Co, (W)VA, census 1840 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA, occupation farmer,1,[5],[6],[7] military Jan- -1863 - Apr-23-1864 Pvt, Co B, W.Va. Independent Exempt Inf, Civil War,[8],[9],[10] [The 1890 Veterans Schedule entry for Peter B. Haught, which was based solely on information provided by his widow Bashaba, indicated that he had served for 1 yr 5 mo, with a discharge date of June 1865. But monthly company muster rolls completed at the time of his service clearly show that he enlisted in Doddridge County for a period of three years on Dec 8 1862 with a muster-in date of Jan 9 1863 at Wheeling, and that he was mustered out in Wheeling on Apr 23 1864. His length of service thus corresponds to the 1890 Veterans Schedule, but with different dates. He seems to have understated his age by ten years during his military service. The two companies of the W.Va. Independent Exempt Infantry were stationed at Wheeling, the state capital, to perform guard and escort duties.].

 

Peter B. Haught, presumably a descendant of Paul Haught of Holland, came into Monongalia Co, (W)VA, from Fayette Co, PA, and purchased a farm of 117 acres, on Statler's Run, on Sep 28, 1837. In 1845 he sold this land and lived in Greene Co, PA, for a short time, later relocating to Doddridge County, West Virginia, near the Ritchie County line. As explained below, his exact parentage has not been definitively determined.

According to the 1948 W. B. Haught genealogy, Peter Haught I was born in Rotterdam, Holland in 1720. He married there in about 1747 and sailed from there on the ship Patience, landing at Philadelphia on Sep 9, 1751, with his wife and daughter Elizabeth. Sometime prior to 1755, he settled near the present town of Moorefield, in what is now Hardy County, WV. His son, Peter Haught II, was born in the South Branch valley on July 1, 1755. (This is presumably the Peter Haut, age 95, listed in the 1850 Census of Monongalia County, along with six other household members.) Peter Haught I had another son by a second wife in 1790.

 

Peter Haught I had three brothers who also came to America: (1) Tobias Haught, who never married; (2) Henry Haught, who had sons John, Nicholas and Peter, the latter killed at Fort Meigs on Feb 23, 1813; and (3) Paul Haught, who is thought to be the ancestor of the Peter B. Haught (1809-1883) of this genealogy.

Paul Haught came to Statler's Run in 1776 and marked a settlement right on a tract of land near the location of his nephew, Peter Haught II, and Richard Tennant. There is no evidence of Paul's return to this settlement right, but two of his sons, John and Jacob, came and claimed the land as heirs of Paul Haught, and had it surveyed on April 6, 1785. Their patent on this tract of 324 acres is dated Oct 25, 1792. On April 4, 1800, they sold 169 acres of the tract to Peter Tennant (son-in-law of Peter Haught I), and on Oct 8, 1804, they sold the remaining 155 acres to Samuel Varner. John Haught and his wife Catherine acknowledged the deed in Monongalia County, while Jacob Haught and his wife Magdaline (Croushour) Haught acknowledged in Fayette Co, PA. John Haught lived in Monongalia County for a few years, owning land on Days Run, and on Dunkard Creek, near Blacksville. His deed for the Dunkard Creek land, to John Johnson, is dated Aug 2, 1806. He moved to Fayette Co, PA. Amos Haught, apparently another son of Paul Haught, was assistant to Samuel Hanway, Surveyor of Monongalia Co, and made two surveys of farm lands in November 1783. Peter Haught, who purchased land on Sandy Creek on March 7, 1815, must have been another son of Paul Haught, as both Peter Haught I and his brother Henry had sons whom they named Peter. [Haught, W. B., "Genealogy of the Haught Family of America," 1948, pp 1, 112 and 165]

Monongalia County marriage records show a marriage between Peter Haught and Elizabeth Jenkins on Aug 16 1803. A marriage bond was issued in Monongalia Co (W)VA on Jan 1 1838 for Peter Hought, Jr. and Rachel Wilson, daughter of William Wilson. The spelling Hought is presumably a variation or misspelling of Haught. ["Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine," Vol 64, No. 11, Nov 1930, p. 705]

Adding to the confusion of the many Peter Haughts in that region at that time is this entry from "Chronicles of Core," p. 5: "Certificates granted by the commissioners for adjusting the claims to unpatented lands on the westernwaters for the county of Monongalia in February, March and April 1781 include the following .... Peter Haught, Senior, 400 acres on Statlers Run, adjoining lands of Henry Smith, to include his improvement made in 1776." Core also makes reference (p. 6) to Richard Tennant, "the ancestor of a very large and important family still living in Monongalia country, came from Glasgow, Scotland, about 1760, selling his time for seven years to pay his passage. About 1769 he married Elizabeth Haught, who was of German descent, at Moorefield, Hardy County, Va.... after serving in the Revolutionary War for a time, came and settled on Jake Statlers Run. His brother-in-law, Peter Haught, came with him." [Core cites Wiley, in "History of Monongalia County, p. 26]

 

Another Elizabeth Haught of that time is also cited by Core (p. 45): "Elizabeth Piles (nee Haught) died March 18, 1834, aged 49 years, 6 months, and 27 days, and was buried in the Price Cemetery. She was the wife of John Piles, son of Zechariah Piles by his second wife, Susannah." Her age at death would put her birthdate at Aug 19 1784.

Very near the grave of Peter B. Haught is a marker for Nancy L. (Postlewait) Britton, who was born about 1853 in Ritchie County, a daughter of Isaac & Mary Ann (Haught) Postleweight. Mary Ann Haught was born about 1819 in Pennsylvania, parents not known, but thought to be George & Jane (Provence) Haught. But the proximity of her daughter's grave to that of Peter B. Haught would suggest a close relationship, perhaps siblings.

Other researchers have reported the parents of Peter B. Haught variously as [1] Jacob Haught (1767-ca 1849) & Magdalena Croushour (1767-1815), [2] Johan (or John) Peter Haught (ca 1786 - ca 1844) & Sarah Sally Carver (1794-1843), and [3] Paul Haught & unknown. For ourselves, until a definitive connection surfaces, the parents of Peter B. Haught must remain an unsolved mystery.[11],[12],[13] Married in Mt. Morris, Greene Co, PA, Bashaba Musgrave, b. May-28-1811 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,4 (daughter of David B. Musgrave and Mary E. "Polly" Jones), d. Sep- 2-1898,4 buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV.4

Bashaba: Spelling of name appears in various forms as Bashaba (headstone), Barsheba (father's will), Bathsheba (1870 Census), Basheba, etc. Birthplace possibly Buckhannon, Upshur Co, WV.

1840 Census, Monongalia Co, Virginia (now West Virginia):

Household of Peter B. Haut:

1 male, age 30-40

1 female, age 30-40

(Note: If this is the correct household, daughter Mariah in not accounted for. See below.)

The adjacent household was that of Peter Haut:

1 male, age 80-90; 1 male, age 15-20; 2 males, age age 10-15

1 female, age 30-40; 1 female, age under 5

A nearby household was that of Jacob Haut:

1 male, age 20-30; 1 male, age 5-10

1 female, age 30-40; 1 female, age 5-10; 1 female, age under 5

Another household in the vicinity was that of Peter Haut:

1 male, age 20-30; 2 males, age under 5

1 female, age 20-30; 2 females, age 5-10

Yet another household in the vicinity was that of another Peter Haut:

1 male, age 20-30

1 female, age 20-20;

1 female, age under 5

(Note: Other than the lack of middle initial, this could be the Peter B. Haught of this genealogy, as it would account for daughter Mariah. Taking all factors into account, our conclusion is that this is indeed the Peter Haught in question.)

Generation Two

 

2. Mariah Jane Haught,[14] b. 1834 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,[15],1,6,[16] [Age 38 at time of 1877 marriage would put birth in about 1839, and 1900 Census states birth date as Jun 1840. But age 15 at 1850 Census and age 35 at 1870 Census would put birth in about 1835. Her obituary states her birth date simply as 1834, as does her headstone. While her marriage record indicates birthplace as Monongalia County, her obituary states the neighboring Greene County, Pennsylvania. The border between the two counties was inexact and changing at that time, and it is not unusual to have both counties reported as a birthplace.], d.

Age in 1850 was clearly 71, putting birth in about 1779, while age in 1860 was just as clearly 73, putting birth in about 1787.] (son of John H. Stinespring and Eleanor ___), d. May- -1869,[22] buried in Oxford Baptist Church Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,18 census 1850, 1860 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA, occupation miller,20,21,[23] occupation farmer.5

Mar-11-1912,4 buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,4 census 1870 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV. First name has appeared variously as Almina and Elmina, although the latter is by far the most predominant. Middle name Ellen obtained from birth record of son James P. Smith. Although her marriage record indicates her middle initial as C, this may be a matter of interpreting the handwritten entry. Headstone clearly reads "Elmina E." Married Jan- 5-1858 in Doddridge Co, WV,[32],16,[33] James Wesley Smith, also known as Wesley Smith,30,[34],5 also known as J. Wesley Smith,[35] b.

Aug- 9-1932 in Oxford, Doddridge Co, WV,[45],44,16 buried in Oxford Baptist Church Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,4 census 1850 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA.

Mary: Identified in her marriage record as Mary A. Gaston and in her obituary as Mary A. Haught, daughter of John H. Gaston and Jane Pritchard Gaston. Basis for middle initial "A" is not known, as her middle name has been determined to be Martha and her headstone clearly identifies her as Mary M. Conversely, the obituary of her son Marvel L. Haught identifies her as Mary Ellen Gaston, and she appears in the 1850 Census as Mary E. Gaston, age 6 months.

 

Her own obituary reads in part: "Mrs. Haught was born and reared and spent her entire long and useful life on the same farm in South West District. She was well known to many of the citizens of Doddridge County and was loved and revered by all who knew her; she was always kind and generous to the poor and was always attentive and helpful to the citizens of her community in times of sickness and distress. She lived a useful life, retaining her memory and optimism of life until a few days before she was called. When her life's work was finished, she fell asleep, assuring her relatives and friends that she was prepared to the change and that all was well with her."

Osborn, and in 1930 as a boarder in the home of Jacob's widow Annetta on Lower Run Road.].

Freda: Identified in obituaries of E. Wilson Osborne and W. Frank Osborne as Mrs. Freda Haught of Akron, a surviving sister. But she was identified in obituary of Frank's sister Rella Osborne Snider as Mrs. Harry (Freda) Haught of Akron, a surviving foster sister, and she was identified in obituary of Annetta "Nettie" Cole Osburn as Mrs. Harry (Freda) Haught of Akron, a surviving foster daughter. It would thus appear that Freda, whose mother died in 1919 when Freda was just 4, was raised in the family of Jacob M. and Annetta "Nettie" Cole Osburn. She was listed in their household as a lodger in the 1920 Census. Relationship between the Davis/Britton and Osborne/Cole families, if any, is not known. Confusingly, the obituary of her foster sister, Mary Osborne Gaston, states that she was predeceased by "three sisters, Rella Snider, Freda Haught and Freda Osborne." No birth record for Freda Davis was found in Doddridge County.

Mrs. Babe Brown

Dear Aunt,

After a long time of delay, I will now answer your letter received back in the States. This leaves me feeling fine, am in good health and sincerely hope for this to find each of you well and enjoying life.

Well, this is certainly a grand country with all its beauty, and my but there are lots of pretty girls here. But I have one back in the States awaiting on me, so I don't try to get acquainted with them here.

This has been a nice bright sunshiny Sabbath, and I have written the most of the day.

Has Chauncey Riddle returned back home yet?

How is business around town?

How is Brown's health? Is he as fat as ever? Tell him I am as I ever was, that Army life hasn't learnt me any bad habits yet and I expect to be the same as long as I live. Tell him hello for me and I hope to see him in the near future.

How are the children?

Well, Babe, don't wait too long to answer. So with love, best wishes to all, I will close.

38. Nancy Lou "Babe" Haught, b. Jan-19-1884 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[355] d. Sep-23-1977 in Coshocton, Coshocton Co, OH,48,193 buried in Lake Park Cemetery, Youngstown, OH,[356] resided (nursing home) in Coshocton, Coshocton Co, OH,48,[357] resided formerly in Youngstown, Mahoning Co, OH,48,193 resided originally in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV.48 Nancy was always sensitive about her age, and no one in the family was ever sure exactly when she was born. The official Jan 19 1884 birth date was provided at the time of the delayed recording of her birth record in 1944 and was based principally on the testimony of her sister Rosa. Age 23 given at time of Dec 1910 marriage would put birth date in 1887, as would age 43 in the 1930 Census. The SSDI reports her birth date as Jan 19 1885, while her headstone shows her birth date as Jan 19 1889, also incorrect. A birth date of Jan 1882 was given in the 1900 Census, correctly placing her between older sister Icy Dell (listed as b. Jul 1880) and younger brother John Homer (b. Nov 1883). An analysis of the 1900 Census data for that household leads to the conclusion that Nancy and siblings Elizabeth, Icy & Homer seem to have shifted their birthdates in later years to make themselves appear a few years younger than they were. In Nancy's case, the shift seems to have occurred at about the time of the 1910 Census (when she was listed as being only 4 years older than in the 1900 Census), as her given age stayed fairly consistent after that. In the end, although we list her birth date as January 1884 to conform with her official birth record, the likelihood is that she was actually born in January 1882 as indicated in the 1900 Census. Married Dec-20-1910 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[358],[359] Addison Avery Brown, b. Aug- 1-1881 in Verndale, Wadena Co, MN,[360],[361] (son of Ammi Almanzia Brown and Almira Sanders), d. Jan-13-1954 in Youngstown, Mahoning Co, OH, buried in Lake Park Cemetery, Youngstown, OH,[362] resided in Youngstown, Mahoning Co, OH,48 resided 1910 - 1943 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,48,245,163 resided 1893 - 1910 in Chehalis County (now Grays Harbor Co), WA,[363],361 census 1910 in Montesano, Chehalis (now Grays Harbor) Co, WA, census 1900 in Satsop, Chehalis (now Grays Harbor) Co, WA, census 1885 in Aldrich Twp, Wadena Co, MN, resided originally in Verndale, Wadena Co, MN, occupation glass-blower (in WV), steel mill worker (in OH).48

Addison: Born in Minnesota in 1881, Addison Brown moved from there to the state of Washington with his father in June 1893. Federal Census data of Jun 5 1900 identifies Addison Y. [sic] Brown, age 19, residing in Satsop, Chehalis County (now known as Grays Harbor County), Washington as a servant and farm laborer in the household of Edward F. Foster, b. Aug 1862 in Idaho. Addison's birthdate was given as Aug 1880 [sic], birthplace Minnesota, father's birthplace Massachusetts, mother's birthplace New York. Edward Foster's wife Mary was shown as born in Apr 1864 in West Virginia. The Fosters' neighbors were the family of Jasper and Virginia Mowry; they and the oldest five of their seven children were born in West Virginia, the younger two born in Washington. We can only speculate that it was through the Fosters and/or the Mowrys that Addison was somehow introduced to Nancy "Babe" Haught and eventually came to West Virginia. This is supported by the fact that Jasper Mowry appeared in the 1870 Census of Doddridge County (New Milton Twp) as the 9-year-old son of George & Mary Mowry, and that Jasper N. Mowry & Jennie (nickname for Virginia) Knight were married in Doddridge County on Mar 10 1856.

Census data of April 19 1910 states that Addison Brown was a 28-year-old laborer living in Montesano Precinct, County of Chehalis (now Grays Harbor County), Washington, with place of birth as Minnesota in 1881, residing as a "hired man" in the household of John C. Smith (age 52, born in Wisconsin) and his wife of 27 years, Jennie C. (age 47, born in West Virginia), and their children. Addison must have come to West Virginia soon thereafter, as he and Nancy "Babe" Haught were married Dec 20 1910 in West Union, and daughter Waneta was born Oct 23, 1911.

1920 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (West Union District), enumerated on Jan 3 1920 at 111 Wabash Avenue:

A. A. Brown, 38, b. Minnesota, both parents b. Minnesota, occupation truck-dray driver; wife Babe Brown, 33; step-dau Clella Haught, 15; dau Jaunita Brown, 8; son Vernon A. Brown, 2 months.

Stated birthplace of Addison's parents is clearly in error.

1930 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (West Union District), enumerated on Apr 14 1930 (location appears to be one of several households at 317 E. Main St.):

Addison A. Brown, 47, b. Minnesota, both parents b. Minnesota, occupation salesman at feed store, age 26 at first marriage; wife Babe, 43, age 22 at first marriage, b. WV, father b. Pa., mother b. WV; dau Mabel W, 18; son Vernon A, 10; son Armond L, 7.

Again, the stated birthplace of Addison's parents is in error. Daughter Mabel W. Brown was better known as Waneta Brown; with her name appearing as Juanita Brown, she had been enumerated a week earlier in Harrison County in the household of half-sister and brother-in-law Clella and Lawrence Ingram.

1940 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (Town of West Union), enumerated on Apr 29 1940 at 304 Cottage Ave:

A. A. Brown, 59, b. Minnesota, laborer; wife Babe, 52, b. WVa; son Vernon, 20, single, laborer at cleaning & pressing shop; son Armand, 17. (Note: It is known from immediate family that in 1940 Addison Brown was employed as a delivery truck driver for the L. A. Hess Transfer Company of Fairmont, WV.)

In an affidavit dated Aug 21 1935 at Clarksburg WV, regarding establishment of Addison's birthdate, Addison stated that his family had moved to Montesano, Washington when he was about nine years old, that the family Bible had been destroyed in a house fire about three years later, that his mother had died when he was about six years old, that his father had died when he was about 18 years old, and that he had no living siblings.

Addison always told his son Armand that his only living relative not descended from him was a cousin, Edith Maria Weeden, whose address was 10 Guernsey Street, Norwich (Chenango County), NY. We have since determined that Edith Weeden was the wife of Archer Lewis Weeden (b. Mar 18 1870) (married May 20 1891) and was born Edith Maria Terwilliger in New York on Feb 13 1873, daughter of Andrew Jackson Terwilliger (1829-1904) and Mary Esther Sanders (1842-1919) (married Dec 12 1871). Census data shows that Mary Esther Sanders was a sister of Almira Sanders, Addison's mother. It was Edith Maria Weeden who in January 1943 provided an affidavit supporting the filing of Addison's delayed birth certificate in Verndale, Wadena County, Minnesota.

After his 1941 graduation from Doddridge County High School, he worked at the A&P grocery store at the end of Main Street near the court house. He had a knack for working with fresh produce, much of which was displayed outside the store to attract customers. One person it attracted was a pretty teenager who walked by every morning on her way to school. Armand happened to be watching one day and saw her grab an apple and continue on her way. He rushed out of the store and demanded that she either return the apple or pay for it. We don't know what she ended up doing, because at this point in telling the story, Armand would always say "And that's how I met my wife. I caught her stealing apples." That teenage girl was Geneva Gaston, and they married a few years later. Although it was never made clear in the telling of the story, there's little doubt that far from being an apple thief, Geneva was simply trying to get the attention of someone special. Married Aug-4-1946 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[382] Geneva Pauline Gaston, b. Nov-15-1926 at Camp Run, Oxford, Doddridge Co, WV (daughter of Ira Dow Gaston and Ida Opal Husk), d.

(1945), Salem College.

Geneva: Graduate of Doddridge County High School (1945) and attended Salem College, Salem, WV, 1945-46. Worked for two years in the office of the Ford garage in West Union. Upon her marriage to Armand Brown in 1946, she moved to Youngstown, Ohio, where Armand's family had moved from West Union while he was overseas during World War II. From 1962 to 1974, she worked as cashier and office worker for A&P food stores in Youngstown and vicinity. In June 1974, with Armand's heart problems preventing him from continuing his job with A&P in Youngstown, they returned to Doddridge County, moving into the house on Oxford Road, at Cabin Run, where Geneva had lived with her family for about five years prior to her marriage. From then until his death in 1985, Armand and Geneva operated what had been her parents' small grocery store adjacent to the family home, changing the name from Gaston's Grocery to Brown's Grocery. With her brother Sam, Geneva was a driving force and principal compiler of this genealogy.

MR Bk 1-A, p. 122, shows that the marriage occurred in Doddridge Co on Jan 5 1858. At first glance, the latter entry looks like July 5 1858, but closer examination of the elegant handwritten entry reveals that what appears to be "July" is actually "Jany," the common abbreviation for January in those days.

Haught, age 78y 7m 18d, dying Dec 28 1924 at Summers of old age. The latter appears to be the more accurate and is the basis for his birthdate of May 10 1846. The Dec 28 1924 date is also given for his death in the obituary of his wife. His headstone gives only the years 1846 and 1924. Birthplace given in death record as Greene Co, PA. DR 4-81 & 2-64A.

(Note: Death date on headstone is Aug 1 1913, rather than the Jul 29 1913 shown in death record. Age at death calculates to a birth date of Nov 28 1891, but to the correct birth date of Nov 30 1891 if the Aug 1st death date is used.

[121] Doddridge County Birth Records, West Union, WV, Identified as Sarah A. (sic) Smith, white female, born alive on Nov 24 1865, dau of James W. and Elimind (sic) E. Smith. (BR Bk 1, p. 26; http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.aspx?Id=2608619&Type=Birth)

This birth record is a ledger-style typewritten log, transcribed from the original handwritten log, and appears to pertain to the same child recorded a few pages later in the same log and identified as Sarah M. Smith, white female, born alive on Nov 24 1866, dau of James W. & Elmina E. Smith. (BR Bk 1, p. 31; http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.aspx?Id=2608371&Type=Birth)

This would also appear to be the Sarah Melissa Smith who married James Reed and whose birth date was given in the 1900 Census as Nov 1865 and in her death record as Nov 4 (sic) 1865. The 1870 Census of her family contained an entry for Sarah M. Smith, age 4, but not for a sibling within one year's age. It is concluded that the transcription process resulted not only in the same birth being record twice, but also in both entries being incorrect in different ways, and that the child in question was Sarah Melissa Smith, born Nov 24 1865.
