My Philip Bridgman (1796-1846) and Sarah Ann Carnes (1803-1845) were married arount 1818. I am seeking Philip's parents and other ancestry. His living children indicated in 1880 various places of birth: DE, VA, OH.
I found Philip & Sarah in Deersville, Harrison Co., OH in 1820, 1830, 1840 census. In 1820 they were living next to Sarah's parents, Thomas Carnes and Elizabeth Dunham. I have extensive information on Elizabeth Dunham.
Seeking parents and ancestry of Thomas Carnes.
Philip and Sarah had 14 children. I have located descendants of 12 of the 14. After Philip and Sarah died before 1850 census, the children were placed with various families in the community, many of whom I connected as family. Missing is Joshua Bridgman (abt 1823) and Thomas (abt 1825) Bridgman.

Thomas married Martha Hardin or Harding and had 3 children.
Have papers Philip signed giving permission to marry. 1850 Stock Twp, Harrison Co, OH, 13 Sept 1850 Page634/318 Dwelling 107
Thomas Brisben 25 farmer, Harrison Co, OH; Margaret 25, Harrison Co, OH; Joshua 4 m, Sarah Jane 3 f, Charles 1 m. Children all born Harrison Co, OH. Even though the name is spelled Brisben, they live just five houses from Charles, his brother, and other Hardin girls who are married. I do not find them again. No trace of children. A Margaret Bridgeman married a Richard Mansfield 25 Dec 1856. I didn't find her with the children.
I believe that their son, Joshua, was in Brown Co., OH with Aquilla Lukens in 1850 census. Have never found anything further on him.

I am seeking the ancestorss= of John H. Carnes, born 1854 in Rowlesburg Town, Preston County, West Virginia. His wife's name was Claudia, and his mother's name was Anna L Carnes. I have no further information before this time, and do not know what the initials stand for.

I found them in a link to the 1920 Census on Family Search, when I was looking for ancestors of John Raymond Carnes, born 1888 in West Virginia. He was my grandfather, the father of Donald Caddell Carnes and John Carnes.
John Raymond Carnes married (Beulah) Grace Caddell at some point, and moved from West Virginia to Philadelphia.
I did not know about Rowlesberg until, and my cousin Claudia Carnes, daughter of John, has confirmed the link.
It says John H. was born in August 1854.
I have no maiden name for his wife Claudia.
His mother was Anne L, sorry, not Anne. No husband's name.
Thank you for your help in advance. Craig Carnes
