Re: John Lemley & Barbara Livengood

In Reply to: John Lemley & Barbara Livengood by Kenneth Flowers of 889

On p. 21 of Alvin Headlee's book on the Lemley Family (sorry, (I only have isolated pages)....this is page 21...
John Lemley Sr. married Barbara Livengood. His number is "I1" (eye-one) and the marriage probably going on to children's numbers are "J1-J11". Since I'm not descended from them, I didn't get that grouping.

John Lemley Sr. (who m. Barbara Livengood) was the son of George Lemley (b. 1741; died 6/11/1813) and Catharine Yoho (b. bef. 1745; died 11/5/1825).....according to Headlee.

I'm sorry I can't tell you even the full title of Headlee's book...

There is another book: "The Tenmile Country and Its Pioneer Families," by. Howard L. Leckey, 1977 (Green County Historical society, Waynesburg, Penn.) that states the following:
(Page 430)
...Pioneer George Lemley, trad. says b. Germany about 1741...twice married; wife #2 was Catharine Yoho; settled on a branch of Whiteley Creek near the Franklin Twp. line, in Greene County Penn. He died in Green co. on 6/1/1813 and his estate was probated 6/29/1813. They had 11 children. Child #1 is yours.
John Lemley (b. 1764[?] died 1840. His wife was Barbara Livengood, daughter of Peter Livengood, Sr. They had children, as follows:
--1--George Lemley, b. 1786; died 1862; mar. Christena Shriver, rem. to Monogalia Co., W. Va.
--2--John Lemley, mar. Barbara Bradford, dau. of James Bradford. They were marr. on Apr 3, 1827.
--3--Jacob Lemley, mar. Sarah White, dau. of Israel & Sarah Slater White.
--4--Sarah Lemley, b. 1789; died. 1873; mar. William Miller, and resided in Wetzel Co., W. Va.
--5-- (--) Lemley, marr. Jesse Halfhill.
--6-- (--) Lemley, marr. John Flowers, son of Benjamin & Elizabeth Flowers.
--7-- Rachel Lemley marr. Isaac Rawley.
--8-- Margaret Lemley.

Hope this helps.
