According to a Wilmington monthly Quaker meeting, on July 16, 1777, Elijah Musgrave was disowned by the Quaker society: "Hath so far erred as to remove to a distant part without taking the advice of friends and without a certificate, and accomplished his marriage before a magistrate to his first cousin."

Sep- 2-1898,5 buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,5 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.

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.

She married Peter B. Haught, census name Peter B. Haut,[14] in Mt. Morris, Greene Co, PA, b. Sep- -1809,[15] [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,[16] buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,5 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,14,[17],[18],[19] military Jan- -1863 - Apr-23-1864 Pvt, Co B, W.Va. Independent Exempt Inf, Civil War,[20],[21],[22] [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: 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.[23],[24],[25]

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.)

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.

The parents of Ida Belle Leggett are known from the 1870 Census. Her marriage record did not call for parents' names, and her death record identifed her parents as "Unknown." In the 1880 Census of Ritchie Co WV (Union District), enumerated on Jun 11 1880, she was a member of the household of Ezekiel Kelley and wife Mary Jane Stinespring. The Census entry was as follows: Ezekiel Kelley, 51, occupation farmer; Mary Jane, 31, wife, occupation keeping house; Festus, 13, son, occupation works on farm; D. Alice, 9, dau; L.

Mar-11-1912,5 buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,5 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."

Aug- 9-1932 in Oxford, Doddridge Co, WV,[98],59,12 buried in Oxford Baptist Church Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV,5 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."

Much confusion has existed over the years concerning the spelling of his name and that of his father, but his father was Marville (despite being listed as Marvel in his wife's obituary), and he named his son Marvel. Nonetheless, both spellings are often seen for both men, even in official records. Headstone gives name as Marvel L. Haught, and the Social Security Death Index identifies him as Marvel Haught.

Obituary, "Doddridge County Republican," Thursday, November 28, 1918:

JAMES ALFRED HAUGHT WINS GOLDEN STAR

On last Friday night the official message went over the wires to Mr. and Mrs. John C. Haught of Bristol that their son, James Alfred Haught, had been killed in action, Oct. 10, 1918.

The details of his brief career as a soldier are unknown to us at this writing, but from relatives here, we learn that he entrained at Clarksburg about May 28th and that he probably took a brief training at Camp Lee before being rushed to France for further training and for active service.

Besides the bereaved parents, three brothers, W. P., Ora V., and W. C. Haught, and two sisters, Misses Alice and Lillie A. Haught, mourn their loss.

The mother was formerly Miss Anna E. Smith, daughter of William Smith of Nutters Fork, and the father is a brother to David Haught of West Union. Silas P. Smith, W. F. Smith and David Smith, all of West Union, are also uncles of the deceased soldier.

For many years the Haughts lived on Brushy Fork, where this noble young man was born and grew to manhood.

The profound sympathy of a wide circle of friends and relatives goes out to the bereaved family in their dark hour of sorrow. And while their loss is irreparable, may God help them to know and to understand that to their son has come the supreme honor -- that he has accomplished the highest possible mission in this life -- that he has made the greatest possible sacrifice for Country and for God.
