Need Archibald Somerville and Rebecca Armstrong daughter Margaret Info

+1 vote
Looking for Johnsburg NY Somervilles and Armstrongs. Margaret, daughter of Archibald Somerville and Rebecca Armstrong was born  ca 1818.

 I am looking for  documentation of her birth, baptism, marriage, or death. One source has husband Richard Van Ripper but this name is not known to me.

I have other information that may or may not connect to her. Does the Johnsburg church have these records? Also looking for Elizur Edwards records, also for Johnsburg 1845.

Thanks for any help!

This may help you narrow the search to an extent. According to the Will of her father, Margaret was not married at the time of his death (or at least when the will was written which I believe is 1848) as he refers to her as Margaret Somerville. The other two daughters are identified as Mary Bennett and Jana Keyo indicating they are married. Listed in the will are Wesley, Thomas, Margaret Somerville, John, Mary Bennett and Jana Keyo.

It looks like son Thomas had a daughter named Margaret b 1847 which causes some confusing returns on some searches.

I would do some additional searching in Census records to see if she can be located 1860 whether married or living with a sibling.
