Sorry to be so long answering your answer to my query. I've studied Mary A. Best/Bost as listed on 1880 census again, and had decided she must be daughter of Daniel M. and Mary Ann Ridenhour Bost, but still can't figure why she is listed as "step-daughter." Talked to descendant of George E. Badger DeJarnette yesterday, who said she did remember family saying that Mary A. did live with family (and could have been named step-daughter) that she had crippled arms. On census, she is listed as single, school teacher, and the columns marked, there is a mark for "maimed, crippled or bedridden." Any further information on this would be greatly appreciated.

Christopher Henry DeJarnette/DeJournette second marriage was to Alice Margaret McClellan, daughter of Elias. Elias' will names his daughters correctly, Alice Margaret DeJarnette and Sara Jane, who married Jacob Teeter 18 Feb. 1867, Cab. Co. C.H.'s first wife, Matissa Louanne, was daughter of John McEachern and Mary "Polly" Neely. Yes, all these families are connected!
