As I find old photos or historical documents, I will post them here.  Perhaps these will turn out to be what you are looking for.

Update: Elizabeth's GGG-grandson made contact with me and now has the album + photos.  If you are related to this family and would like to contact him, you may do so via email:

The following is from an email I received a short time ago:

"Donna [Maugherman] could not identify the photos and had seen the newspaper clipping some years ago. She told me how Elizabeth Maugherman walked many a time from her home at Ellis Corners to Angola, a distance of abt five miles.

Elizabeth was a gr.gr. aunt of Kenneth Maugherman (Donna's husband) who died this year.[2007]
From the Steuben Co. In. Cemetery Book by Audree Lewis;T he Pleasant Lake Cemetery; Adam Maugherman, 3-15-1882---Elizabeth Maugherman, 6-8-1913.T he base of the Monument is inscribed MOCHIMER.
Elizabeth was married first to John Conway, who was injured, had a leg amputated and died the next day after they were married.

After talking to Donna Maugherman I went to the library here in Angola to see what I could find since this is where Elizabeth made her last home with her daughter, "A Remarkable Woman"Steuben Republican, 12-25-1968, (this has the same photo as your newspaper clipping)her birthday celebration in 1911 (with photo)and her obituary 6-8-1913. 

Donna Maugherman is close to ninety and volunteers at the local hospital every day at the coffee shop."


All the photos and the news article (1908 Cleveland Newspaper) were in an old album I purchased at a resale shop. The subject, Elizabeth Maugherman, is reported to have been born in 1805, her father served in the American Revolution but his name is not listed nor is her maiden name.

In the news article, Elizabeth's great-great-granddaughter, Leona Hardinger is mentioned. I found 3 census years for Leona:

        Year: 1910; Census Place: Waterford, Erie, Pennsylvania; Roll: T624_1343; Page: 4B; Enumeration District: 138; Image: 1014.

        Year: 1920;Census Place: Millcreek, Erie, Pennsylvania; Roll: T625_1567; Page: 5B; Enumeration District: 128; Image: 552.

         Year: 1930; Census Place: Erie, Erie, Pennsylvania; Roll: 2036; Page: 22B; Enumeration District: 86; Image: 1078.0.

There is a post card at the bottom of Earl D. Ehlinger, listed as Carrier #2 and it addressed to the Smothers Family, Flint Mich. There isn't a date but I located his WW1 draft card dated 1917.( Registration Location: Hillsdale County, Michigan; Roll: 1675663; Draft Board: 0.)  He was born 4 Nov 1894 and is 22.

While there are no names on any of the photos, I can't help but think this is the family of Mrs. Maugherman.

If you are a direct descendant of Mrs. Maugherman, please contact me about obtaining the album.
Please see the "UPDATE" above.


If you read the home page, you know that I am a volunteer with www.findagrave.com
One of the many reasons I love that site is that these people are just wonderful and help each other.  I just received the following from a fellow member.

"I found in (Mortuary Notice)
Date: 1913-06-14; Paper: Wilkes-Barre Times Leader

Bryon,O. Mrs. Elizabeth Maugherman who for years has smoked nearly all the time while about the home is dead at 108." -- Labyrinth
