Bill --
We have chatted before -- maybe two years ago. My new theory is that this census (and spelling) is connected to the following 1880 census (and incorrect spelling). This Mathias is my gg-grandfather, Mary(Jane) my g-granmother. Have headstones and a few pictures to verify the Nolf spelling (on graves) and McCoy maiden name, but I've yet to find anything past her father Martin, born 5 May 1822, died 26 Jan 1904 in Pine Twp, Armstrong Cty.

1880 census
Mahoning, Armstrong, PA

Mathias NULPH Self M Male W 26 PA Ore Mining PA PA
Annie NULPH Wife M Female W 23 PA Keep House PA PA
Mary NULPH Dau S Female W 5 PA PA PA
Oswell NULPH Son S Male W 1 PA PA PA

So before DuBois he was in Mahoning. Question is, where are his roots? I find it curious that by census he lives next door to a 50-yr old George Nulf with his young irish wife and her two sons from previous marriage ..... Do you know who this George is?

George NULF Self M Male W 50 PA Farms PA PA
Kate NULF Wife M Female W 36 PA Keep House IRE IRE
George B. NULF Son S Male W 14 PA PA PA
Joseph NULF Son S Male W 24 PA Day Labr. PA PA
John NULF Son S Male W 17 PA Day Labr PA PA
Alex SCHUCKENGOST SSon S Male W 19 PA Day Labr PA PA
Franklin A. M. SCHUCKENGOST SSon S Male W 17 PA Day Labr PA PA

Kathleen,
I think the Mathias Nolf you found on the 1880 Census is another Nolf.This is what I have on the one you found:
Mathias Nolf - b.1853 Pa
Lydia Anna (Annie) Dehof - b Jun 1856 Pa - married 7 Jun 1873,Columbiana Co.,Ohio
1.Mary - dau - b.ca 1875 Pa
2.Oswald - son - b.Oct 1878 Pa
3.Lillian - dau - b.Dec 1880 Pa
4.Edith - dau - b.Jan 1889 Pa
5.Joseph - son - b.Sep 1890 Pa

Have found them on the 1850,1880, and 1900 Census.

As for George and Katie Nulf I have not been able to find a family connection yet.

Best Regards,
Bill Nulph
6.Naomi - dau - b.May 1896 Pa

Kathleen,
You are correct.Mathias b Jul 1853 (Per 1900 Census Allegheny Twp.,Westmoreland Co.,Pa - ED 75,sheet 37,Ln 66) was married to Annie b.Jun 1856.

Lydia Dehof was married to Mathias b 1831 in Pa.( Per 1870 Census Elkton,Fairfield Twp.,Columbiana Co.,Ohio - Pg 61,Ln 16)
Thanks for catching the error.Appreciate the help.

Best Regards,

I think the birth years are a little off here. As I said on another thread in here....

I finally gave up and paid for the death certificates of these GGgrandparents of mine. Mathias' certificate lists George Nolf as his father and born in PA. Unfortunately it does not list a maiden name or even first name for his mother.

He was born on July 10, 1854, not in 1856. Both he and his father are listed as being born in PA (no towns given). He died on May 16, 1933, in Venango, Crawford County, PA.

Anna Rebecca (McCoy) is confirmed to be from Martin McCoy and Ann Sweasey. She was born on June 4, 1856, in Templeton, PA. She died in Duboise (where she lived with a daughter) on Oct 22, 1950, but was buried in Venango Cemetery with Mathias.

Hope this helps. -- K

I came across this old thread and thought I should update it a bit.

Although Ana Rebecca McCoy's death certificate says her mother was Ann Sweazey, we still have not been able to resolve the conflict of all other children (and herself) being of Sarah (Unknown), as shown by several census records. A close examination of the death certificate might indicate that some information was filled in at a later date.

AS of 2013, we are still unable to to resolve this Sarah/Ann issue.

Another Update:
The Ann/Sarah issue over the wife of Martin McCoy, mother of Anna Rebecca, has been resolved.

Sarah Sweasey
Birth 29 Jun 1830 in Marietta, Washington, Ohio
Death 5 Mar 1914 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, PA
