Daniel Drudge
born July 6, 1834, died November 18, 1858,

Daniel married Cathrine Layman September 12, 1852

From the union were born:

Albert Drudge born 1853 died March 18, 1856
James Drudge born 1855 died December 19, 1856

NOTE: Daniel died November 18, 1858 and the two girls listed below were old enough to have been his daughters.
In 1860 a Cathrine Layman is found in Ashland Co., Ohio, Ashland is the County from which Daniel's wife had came. She had the two daughters listed below. She married Samuel Smith April 22, 1860. They were married by George Witner in Ashland County, Ohio. Samuel Smith was much older than Cathrine, born Abt. 1799.

* It is my theory that this is Daniel's wife and daughters. After Daniel's death Cathrine went back to relatives in Ohio, and married Samuel Smith in a marriage of convenience.

Mary E. Drudge born 1856
Amelia A. Drudge born 1858
