I have gotten several emails regarding my email I recently sent regarding the Moreland
family. Instead of writing to each of you, I thought it best to combine all
of my info in ONE email.

The message below is basically all that I have on the Moreland family .I received this
info from Tammy H. Marchewka, RR l, Box 2938, Connellsville, Pa 16425) in 1993
so perhaps you could write to her. She was tracing the Huff family. (could also be
spelled Hough).

I live in Garrett Co., and notice that there are 28 Moreland families listed in the
C & P Telephone directory.

My husband's grandfather was m. (2nd wife) to a "Widow Huff". His name was William
Mahon Goldsborough I. I am finding
relationships among the Huff, Goldsborough, and Twigg families!!!)
