Morehead families in Wash co Pa & Brooke Co VA
Posted by: Kim Ralston Dresser (ID *****3345) Date: June 10, 2011 at 20:48:26

Hello, I'm looking for clues on the Morehead families in Washington co PA & early Brooke County VA/WV & Carroll County Ohio. Also seen the name spelled Moorhead, Muirhead, Moorehead in some records.

I have several Morehead & Ralston marriage in my lines & want to try to find out the connection between the Morehead's if there is one.. I'm sure there is just got to figure it out.

I have a Sarah Ralston married to William Morehead bef 1829, had a daughter Mary who married Rev. John A. Crayton of Westerville OH who was a preacher in the United Brethern Church who died in 1904. I'm sure they had other children according to the census info i've found.

I have a Mary Morehead who married a Joseph Ralston in 1812 in Brooke.
A Martha Jane Morehead married a George Ralston. Martha Jane may have a brother Samuel Morehead listed in one of the census with them one year. Believe she also had a brother Joseph Morehead (listed in a anniv clipping from newspapers & he was living in Ohio)

A Martha Ralston who married in 1841 in Brooke to Abraham Morehead. She has several young children buried near her & His father is buried in the Morehead or Moorehead Cemetery in Carroll County Ohio.

There is a marriage for John Crosier & Sarah Morehead in Dec 5, 1849 in Carroll co OH. They have a William Morehead age 18 living with them in 1860 census, Carroll co OH.

& A Timothy Ralston & Jane Morehead 29 Nov 1846 in Carroll co. OH. can't find them in the census records yet.
A Crawford Morehead buried in Harlem Springs Cemetery Carroll co.. don't have dates.

& A Margaret Morehead (d. 7 May 1889) in Wash co PA who married George Anderson 1809-1875, they had son William Anderson who married Kizah Ralston (1845-1920)

Any Morehead clues treasured.
Thanks,
