Henry Ambrose (1762 - 1833) and Susannah Walker Ambrose (1768 - 1843)

Henry Ambrose, my fourth great-grandfather, the eldest son of Frederick and Margaret Ambrose, was born June 20, 1762 in Fulton County, Pennsylvania.  He married Susannah Walker probably about 1789 based on the birth date of their oldest child.  They had eleven children including my third great-grandfather, William Ambrose.  Of their eleven children, four of them married siblings who were the children of John Peter and Anna Maria "Mary" (Mathews) Bitner.  Another four married members of the Welshonse family.

Henry was a farmer who owned land on Coal Pit Run in Ligonier, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania totaling about 40 acres.  This farm had belonged to his father. He was a member of the Lutheran Church.

Henry died January 27, 1833 in Ligonier.  Susannah died ten years later on November 22, 1843 at the age of 75 years, 10 months, 14 days according to her gravestone. They are buried in Old Ligonier Cemetery, Ligonier, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania.
