  • Relationshipwith Mathias St. John
    Born 8 Mar 1834  Ohio, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Gender Female 
    Name Marguerite Briner
    Marguerite Livengood 
    Died 12 Jun 1904  Portland, Jay, Indiana, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Her death certificate completed by Albert Stroble of Jay, Indiana states her parents incorrectly. I have yet to identify this individual in relationship to her but the information is clearly wrong.

      1850 Federal Census Margaret Briner was 15 years old and listed with her parents Samuel Briner and Elizabeth (Funk) Briner.

      1860 Federal Census Margaret Brinner was aged 25 with her parents Samuel and Elizabeth Funk. Additionally, we find Elizabeth Smith, aged 3 also in the census. This was the Margaret's daughter with her now deceased husband Levi Smith.

      1870 Federal Census Margaret Livengood aged 33 is with her second husband William Livengood and children Elizabeth A. Smith aged 14. Sarah M. Livengood aged 5 and Eliza J Livengood aged 1.

      William Livengood's 1904 death certificate lists his wife as Margaret Livengood.

      Margaret (Briner) (Smith) Livengood's 1904 death certificate lists her husband as William Livengood but incorrectly supplies her parents as James Briner and Mary Briner. Her parents according to the census records at the time of creation were Samuel Briner and Elizabeth (Funk) Briner.


    • In the Will of David Smith, father of Levi Smith, and grandfather to Elizabeth Anne Smith it states.

      Item 3... I give and bequeath to my grandchildren...to Anna Smith now the wife of Jackson Goodson, the sum of two hundred dollars.
