Dear Jeff,  my name is Bill Harry and I am from NW PA.  I have been doing some research and as asked to review possible connection for Margaret Williams who was the daugther of Abraham Martin Williams and Sarah Elmira Harry.  She had a sister named Mary Lacressa Harry.  Your record reflects a birth date for Margaret of 1870's.  My Margaret is 1879.  I have no further information about either other than the lineage to Daniel & Margaret (Yarnell) Harry from Deckkards Run in Crawford County, PA.  1800, though, Pennsylvania incorporated from 4 counties to 67.  I believe it was originally part of Allegheny County prior 1800.  Thanks. Bill

Allegheny Co., was very large before 1880 and included where Crawford Co., was.  From "Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censusses 1790-1920."

From Ohio Marriages 1800-1958, Maggie Williams born Cochranton, PA in 1879 married Henry J. Reno on 13 Aug 1901 at Mahoning Co., OH. The bride's father was Abraham Williams and the groom's parents were Herman Reno and Julia Morell.
