I am looking for information on Benjamin Oswalt (last name also spelled Oswald) and his family. The information I have on him and his family is as follows:

Benjamin Oswalt b. between 1794 and 1800 in Pennsylvania. He died before 28 September 1861. (I have the administration papers and administration notices in the Huntingdon County newspapers.)

He married Mary (Last name could possibly be ROUGH or ROBB), but the date and place is unknown.

Known and possible children of Benjamin and Mary Oswalt.

John b. abt 1820 d. 1898 m. Juliana HAWN in 1840

Solomon b. abt 1826 d. before Feb. 1869

Eliza (?) d. between 1850 and 1860 m. Thomas King in 1848

William b. abt 1832 d. in Michigan in 1876 m. Eliza MOSIER

Adam b. 15 May 1836 (according to his Civil War pension file) d. 7 Sep 1910 in Michigan m. Barbara Ann Detwiler on 23 Feb. 1861 in Michigan

Margaret b. abt 1837 died in Michigan in 1915 m. 1 Daniel BLACK 2. David ELSEY

Benjamin b. abt 1839 and d. 1872 in Michigan m. Elizabeth (?) FREELOVE

Nancy b. abt 1841

Although I haven't completely confirmed if all the persons named above are Benjamin and Mary's children, my sources and explanations can be found at this article on my blog.

Is anyone else researching this family or have any additional information?
