      Hello Joe Pugh

      My greatgrandfather (John Pugh born abt. 1831) came from Wales during
      the 1850's and lived in Penn (Johnstown area) and married in that area
      abt. 1865. He was naturalized Sept. 18, 1868 in Ebensburg, Penn.

      He moved to Blue Earth County, Minn. and lived close to a brother Thomas
      during 1869. John Pugh returned to Johnstown, Penn. in March of 1871
      where he died on May 30, 1871.

      John had one son (Benjamin, my grandfather) born 16 Dec. 1867. After
      John's death Ben lived with his mother (Mary Ann) in the Iowa City, Iowa
      area. After Ben's mother died (11 Dec. 1891) he traveled to Colorado
      and lived in Cripple Creek working in the gold mines.

      Ben met and married ( 10 Jan. 1900) Nettie Mae Stephenson (she worked in
      a bording house which served gold miners). They had five children which
      included my father (John S Pugh). Ben obtained a homestead east of
      Denver and died 2 Dec. 1944.

      Joe, Do our families have any connect?
