I am searching for a Peter and Elizabeth Knee of Woodbury, Bedford County, Pennsylvania. According to the 1860 census, Peter was born in 1790 and Elizabeth was born in 1800. This is either Peter's second wife or Peter is the brother to Frederick Knee born 1810 Pennsylvania.

Peter Knee died prior to the 1870 census. Elizabeth Knee is found on the 1870 and 1880 census in Bedford County, Pennsylvania living with Walter and Susan Enos. On the 1880 census she is listed as MOTHER, not mother in law. Walter is 47 (born about 1823) and Susan is 48 (born about 1822) both in Pennsylvania.

Frederick marries a woman by the name of Barbara/Barbary who was born in 1814 Pennsylvania. They migrated to Ohio and had 8 children prior to migrating (Peter, Nancy, David, John, Sarah, Jacob, Mary and Phillip - born about 1848 Pennsylvania). They had a son named Samuel in about 1852 Ohio.

Daughter Nancy Knee married Hezekiah Ashby in Clinton County, Indiana on December 4, 1853.

I have photos of Nancy Knee Ashby and some of her children. Her daughter Barbara married Harvey Clawson (they are my great great grandparents), I also have photos of them.

If any of this fits into your research, please email me
