Note: It is only speculation that the father of Mary Greenough/Greenhoff/Greenho was a sibling of Michael Greenhoe but she did live in Hartley Twp., Union Co., Pa., which is where some of the Greenhoe family lived for a time (Hartley Twp. includes Mifflinburg). Reportedly the death certificate of Peter and Mary's daughter, Anna Miller Showalter, indicates that her mother was "Barbara Greenhoff" while a family Bible belonging to Susan Slater (a descendant of Anna Miller Showalter) reports that Peter's wife was "Polly Greenho." Various census records refer to her as either Mary or Polly. Her headstone reportedly says Mary, wife of Peter. It is of interest that a letter written by a grandson of Samuel Greenhoe (son of Andrew Greenhoe who is believed to be a brother of Michael Greenhoe) reports that "As I remember my grandfather [Samuel Greenhoe] said the name was originally 'Greenhofe' a dutch name and his first people came from Holland and settled in Eastern Penna. They were carpenters and farmers but did not own large farms or if they did could only farm a small part as the country around Bucks Co. is largely hills and mountains. After Grandfather and his bro. Jacob came to Ohio they dropped the 'f' from the name and Jacob's family dropped the 'e' too, so they spell it Greenho now..." (Note that German families were referred to as "Pennsylvania Dutch" but that does not mean they came from Holland).
