Family Background:
Fairfield and Allied Families
     Lovace Baughman was born in 1777 in Pennsylvania.1,2 She was the daughter of Abraham Baughman and Mary Katharine Deeds.1 She married Daniel Gayman in 1802 in Washington County, Pennsylvania.2,3 She died in 1852 in Washington County.2 She was buried in the little graveyard on the farm of her son Isaac in Washington County.2
     Lovace was also known as Olivia and Livy. In a historical sketch read at a Gayman family reunion in 1921, it is written that "...he Daniel Gayman married Lovace Baughman, who, orphaned at an early age, was brought up by Jacob Swagler, a pioneer settler of Somerset township, Washington County." However, Lovace's father, if correctly identified, died in 1827 at about age 77. Note that in the historical sketch, she is called Olivia throughout, but all three names are included on an accompanying descendant chart. The following quote is from the sketch:
Lovace Baughman was 25 years of age at the time of her marriage to Daniel Gayman, and 20 years his junior, but she proved not to be an old man's darling, but a very efficient helpmeet, supplementing his efforts to add to his cultivable acres, to develop his material resources and to properly care for and rear his family. She was a worthy matron of the old school and together they worked out the scheme of life which destiny had allotted them, training their children in thrift and frugality, to be just and upright in intercourse with their fellow men and, above all, to revere the Bible and to make its teachings the rule of their lives, for they were God fearing people of the good old Dunkard faith.2
