This is a wonderful PA Eargood family piece, and a very unusual surname. We found many spellings of the German / Germany surname in census records such as Ehrgatt, Ehrgood, Ehregood, Ergood, Earegood, and Eargood, and often for the same people in different years. We could not find Aunt Elizabeth directly, but believe we have found her daughter Lizzie, who married George Kongher as Elizabeth Eargood Kongher.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
