FOUST / FAUST / ENGLE / BURKET / GLASSNER I am searching for Mary FOUST / FAUST who was near 17 years of age at the time of the court orders shown here. If anyone has included this child in their family as step-child or other title or if she married soon after 1792 and there is a record of the marriage, then please let me know. Also, anyone with knowledge of meaning of 'late guardian' as it applies to Michael INGLE please explain to me. I have found that all of the names in these references are quite different from those used at your Reformed Church. I elected not to change the court record. PeterFOUST, dec'd (-1790) Mary, widow. c: Abraham, Elizabeth, John, Margaret, Sara, Susannah, MARY FOUST / FAUST Peter FOUST, dec'd. Mary, widow. Adm: John FISHER Bonds: Clements INGLE, Michael INGLE, all of Elk Lick Twp. (7 January 1791). On motion of Joseph NAWGEL & at instance of John FIKE, surviving administrator of Peter FOUST, Solomon GLADFETY was appointed guardian over Abraham & Elizabeth FOUST, both under 14 years. On the motion and instance, as above, Michael INGLE was appointed guardian over the other children of Peter FOUST dec'd, namely, John, Margaret, Sara & Susannah, under 14 years of age. MARY FOUST, over 14, chose Michae lINGLE as guardian. Approved. (20 February 1792) Upon application by Memorial of Jacob GLASSNER, Jr and on motion of W. NAWGLE the court appointed Jacob GLASSNER, Jr., & George BURKET as joint guardians over John, Peggy, Sally & Susannah Foust, minor children of Peter FOUST, dec'd, in place of Michael INGLE, late guardian.

Looking for any information on the McCAULEY family of Woodbury Twp. Bedford Co., PA. John McCauley is shown as 12yrs old living with the John STUCKY family in the 1870 census.
