The son (of John Newbrough-1690/1735) Joseph, had been born in Chester Co .,

Pennsylvania in 1755. He also became a blacksmith. He marrie d Sarah

Hayhurst, a Quaker from Harford Co., Maryland, in 1782. She was the n shunned

by the Quakers for marrying outside of the faith. They also moved t o Winchester

Co., West Virginia in 1790. Some of their children moved west - Ohi o territory in

1819. The others stayed in West Virginia-where there are still larg e clusters of

Newbrough/Newbraugh descendants. I do not know whether this Josep h actually
