I am researching my John Platt line of York Co Pa to Cambria Co Pa. From John Platt's Revolutionary War pension file, his first wife was a half sister to Ludwig Wysong.
I believe Old Lud had two wives, the first possibly a Hammer and the last mentioned in his will as Mary.
Platt family history has that John Platt married Elizabeth Wysong and fathered 5 children with her. In researching those 5 children, I came across a biography of William Warnock, the husband of John Platt's grandaughter (Agnes). She was the caregiver of her father John Platt Jr in his later years, so I assume she heard some family stories. The information from the biography says Agnes is the daughter of John Platt Jr. and that John Platt Jr. was the son of John Platt, a Revolutionary War soldier, and his wife Elizabeth Leutze. Also that John Platt came from Rockbridge Co Va to Adams Co Pa and then to Cambria Co in 1801. (In John's Revoultionary War pension file, he states he was born near Littlestown in York Co Pa)
I want to investigate all possibilities here. Including the use of the term "half sister" and the possibility that the biography is mixing up John Platt The Revolutioner with his father, thought to Henry Platt, and found in a single record in Germany Twp in 1755.
Has the name Leutze or Lutz or similar spelling cropped up in any early Wysong Pennsylvania history?
Did Mary Wysong remarry after Old Lud died?
Is there a will for Mary Wysong?
Is there someone still researching the early Wysong records in Pennsylvania or Virginia?
Many Thanks, Jane Tripp
