Is anyone out there researching the RAUGHT/ROUGHT surname?
My gggrandfather, Jacob Alfred Raught, born ~1822 (m. Mary Cathrine
Schaffer from Prussia) was born in New York...somewhere. He migrated to
Marquette Co., WI around 1850-1860. The WI census of 1860 indicates his
father was born at sea, and his mother was born in New York. I don't
know their names, but an older Jacob was living with Jacob Alfred when
this census was taken.
I have seen many records of RAUGHTs from Columbia Co., and was hoping
maybe somebody knew more than me!
Thank you for your time.
