M0 - Ray County

The 1830 census of Ray county Missouri lists John McGaugh and Robert McGaugh. John McGaugh, Sr., was married a second time to Jane Bartelson (Evans) on November 8, 1821, in Ray county, Missouri. (The marriage of John McGaugh to Mrs. Jane Evans on November 8, 1821, is listed in Genealogical Records: Midwest Pioneers, 1600s–1800s: Missouri Marriages Before 1840, surnames, M-N, page 144, on Genealogy.com. Children were: Nancy J. McGaugh , John A. McGaugh, and Matthew M. McGaugh. For the reasons I include these McGaughs here, see my page McGoughs and McGaughs in Early American History under William and Ruth McGaugh. Although I don't ordinarily list McGaughs on my US census pages, I have included the entries for John and William McGaugh here, partly because I have a specific instance where John McGaugh, while in Davidson county, Tennessee, was listed as John McGough. There were many McGaughs in Ray county, Missouri, in 1830 and later decades, but I generally list only those whose names have sometimes been confused with McGough.]

'Giney' McGaugh, William McGaugh, Elizabeth McGaugh, Charlotte McGaugh, Thomas H. McGaugh, Robert H. McGaugh, and Evaline McGaugh. This may be Thomas H. McGaugh, who was born on July 10, 1810, in Davidson county, Tennessee, and who married Margaret Wall on June 2, 1836, in Missouri.]

1 female 20 to 30

1 male 15 to 20 [This may be Robert H. McGaugh who was born on December 28, 1812, in Davidson county, Tennessee. He was married three times, and died on October 22, 1880. His first marriage was to Martha Sally Davis on November 6, 1832, in Ray county, Missouri.]
