Thank you George for your help & the info.
Looks like I need to check census records there for these folks.
I have a will from 1831 from Wash co Pa courthouse records of an Archibald Ralston was a Rev. War soldier under Capt Fite & was buried in the Kings Creek cemetery- in Beaver co PA, he mentions sons William, John & Nathaniel & 4 daughters Mary Ferguson, Jean Kern or Kerr, Betsy Rob/or Robb, Sally & Mary Canton.
I have 2 copies of the cemetery records of Kings creek & one of them says Archibalds wife was Ann McCready..
but Beers history of Wash co Pa says she married to Joseph Ralston of Kings creek in Brooke co VA..? so I'm trying to track more info down. I have her father' Joseph McCready's will & it only listed her as Ann Ralston. A wife wasn't mentioned in Archibalds will so assume she died before him.
Joseph & Ann had 11 kids & we think she died abt bef 1813.
he then remarried to a Sarah Greer of Carroll co OH & had more kids- I'm tracking all these folks too.
THANKS so much for your help on the lookup.
Take care & Happy Trails on all your researching too.
