Wow! Was I happy when I ran across this group. There is so much information and knowledge here, I spent the better part of last reading through group postings.
Working on my family, both my cousin and I have come to a stop with Charles Pugh. Here are bits and pieces we have so far.
Charles Pugh born 1849. Married to Myrrha/Mara/Mira Boyd/Boyle born 1853. They had a daughter Clara Pugh born 1871 who married Frank Armstrong. Other children were Samuel Pugh born 1871, Barbara Elizabeth Pugh born 1875, Edward W. Pugh born 1877, David A. Pugh born 1879.
They were both living with the Lot Morrow family. Charles was a laborer on the farm and Myrrha was a housekeeper. They lived in Richland Twp in Allegheny County.
We can't trace back to Charles parents. Anyone familiar with this particular Pugh family?
