I am seeking evidence for the wives of Jacob Defibaugh of Bedford County PA, son of Caspar the immigrant.
Jacob and his brother Adam were taxed as single freemen in Colerain Township in 1783 (Devebaugh) & 1784 (Tevebaugh). Jacob seems to have married about 1785, as the 1800 census for Providence & Colerain shows him with 2 males 10-15. He ran a distillery and was indicted (with brother Adam) for treasonous activities during the Whiskey Rebellion, according to the National Register of Historic Places nomination form for the Defibaugh Tavern.
In 1800, Jacob Devebaugh's household includes one female 26-44. In 1810, there is a female 45 and over. In 1820 (Jacob Devebough, Providence Twp), the oldest female is 16-25, suggesting a second wife born 1775-1784. In 1830 (Jacob Devibaugh, Bedford Twp), the oldest female is 40-49, suggesting either same wife born 1781-1784, or a third wife born 1781-1790.
In family trees on Ancestry.com and elsewhere, Jacob's wives are given as Mary X, Barbara Dibert, and/or Margaret Dibert. Are these names conjectural, or is there any evidence for them?
