With the help of the people who contacted me because of this board, I have been able to track the Ebaugh family to the paternal immigrant ancestor. On the maternal side, I have tracked them to pre-1800. Thank you to all.
At the moment, I have one lingering fact I can't clear up. John Andrew Ebaugh and Viola L. Cox were on the 1910 census of Malta, then Valley County, MT with their son Andrew Clarence Ebaugh. It shows John and Viola as having been married 22 years (1888), and Viola as having 2 children born, 2 children living. From the WWI draft registration, I found that Andrew was born 06 Aug 1890, in Roundup, then Yellowstone County, MT. I couldn't find them on the 1900 census, nor could I read the age of first marriage from the 1930 census. I know John had married before, but I don't know about Viola.
Does anyone know who was the other child born and living in 1910? If the child was born of both of these parents, I would consider it reasonable to guess the child was older than Andrew by about one year. The child could have been a female of 17 or 18 years, already married by the time of the census.
In the book 'Montana, Its Story and Biography', 1921, Vol. 3, page 429, while speaking of Judge Andrew Davidson, the text states "(abt 1914) he came to Wagner where he bought the John Ebaugh farm of 650 acres". That is the only mention I have found of him so far in the published histories.
I have found John's and Viola's separate land patents from the BLM site, showing John as having claimed 147.5 acres on May 2, 1903; 142.25 acres on March 1, 1904, 19.125 acres on December 9, 1915 (at Zortman), and Viola as having 200 acres January 6, 1910. This doesn't make 650 acres, so they must have bought more.
Both John and Viola were born in Williams County, OH.
Any help identifying the other child will be appreciated.
