Am looking for information on Lydia Ostander b. 1820 Jefferson County Pa. A
relative found her on the LDS IGI listed as a relative to my Great Great
Grandmother Anne Jane Adams Allshouses mother was named Lydia Ostander, but
have not been able to find any information on her, her parents or siblings,
or the names of her other children.
Is the above named Lydia the one who was married to Samuel Douglas Adams born
February 23, 1811 Indiana County Pa.
Daughter Anne J Adams born Nov 21, 1836 in Indiana County Pa.
Lydia Adams was found Lydia Adams 1840 Pennsylvania Allegheny County Roll

In 1845 Lydia and three of her daughters contracted smallpox as the family
story goes they were put in a straw strewn room to die. Lydia Adams and two
un named daughters died. 9 year old Anne Jane was the only one to survive
watching her mother and sisters die.
Buried in Methodist burying ground where Union Station was built in
Pittsburgh moved for the station, in researching the reburials we may have
located one of the unnamed daughters Amanda Adams.
These burials were supposed to have been moved to Allegheny Cemetery when
Union Station came in. I've been informed they should be in section 29 lot 1
of Allegheny cemetery, which is single interments from the Methodist cemetery
that had been on Liberty St.
We did not locate Lydia, but found an Amanda Adams 5 years 2 months 13 days
old as one of the reburials in section 29 lot 1 of Allegheny cemetery.
We have not yet determined if this is another of Anne Janes sisters or not.
Does any of this connect to the above named Lydia Ostander?
