Am looking for info or ancestry on Mary Margaret Peffer born 1822 I believe in Germany or possibly Pennsylvania. She married Sidney Mountain born abt 1826 and lived in Grant Twp, Indiana Co, Pa. Apparently she went by Margaret as this is how she is listed on the 1880 U.S. census.
My name is Angie Leasure Mullis and I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania. I have been researching my family tree and it may be taking me to Mary Margaret Peffer through Sidney Mountain. My grandmother was Mildred Mountain (born Erie, PA around 1916 and died in Erie in 1975 - she married Ted Leasure) her father was Jesse Lee Mountain (born Grant Twp., PA 2/22/1898) I believe his fater is Sidney mountain who was the son of Mary Margaret and Sidney Mountain. Thats where though, i'm not sure and trying to find more information. I'm trying to find out if the Sidney Mountain that was born in/around 1858 had a son named Jess or Jesse Lee around 1898. I asked my grand mothers youngest sister who was born in the late 30s and all she could tell me was her grandfathers name was Sidney and grandmother was Anna. I have been unable to find more so far.
Do you have any connections past Mary Margaret and Sidney, possibly on their children like Sidney?
My grandfather was Jesse Glenn Mountain b. 1894 I believe in Grant Twp., PA married to Alice Mumau b. 1893 again I believe in Grant Twp. Jesse's father was Jerome Roy b. 1863 in Covode, Indiana Co, PA married to Etta Ella Daugherty b. 1866 in East Run, Grant Twp. PA. Their children were Grace b. 1887, Albert Earl b. 1888, Lester Stanley b. 1890, Lewis Hal b. 1891, my grandfather Jesse Glenn, Laura Rosline b. 1897, unnamed son b. and d. 1899, Harvey Edward b. 1901, unnamed son b. and d. 1904, and Cyrus b. 1907. Jerome's father was Sidney R. b. 1824 who married Mary Marget Peffer b. 1822. Their children that I know of were Catherine b. 1848, Margaret b. 1851, Elizabeth b . abt 1854, John M. b. abt 1856, Sidney b. abt 1858 (criminal record for raiding smokehouse and chicken house), Andrew A. b. 1860, and my g-grandfather Jerome. This Sidney b. 1824 is the farthest back I have found records/data on. My uncle told me he believed he originally may have come from Somerset County, PA and was an illigitimate child. I have a couple generations further back on Mary Margaret Peffer but that is all. I don't know if this is any help or more confusion but hope it may be helpful. If you find out any more, I would appreciate hearing from you. If you want documentation/data for what I have I will try to see what I can do for you.
