Emma Cash from Allegheny, PA

I'm trying to find out more about Emma Cash who we think was born in Allegheny, PA in about 1867. I believe that is now part of Pittsburgh. Her mother was Ellen Gow (probably from Ireland) and her father was Charles Cash (probably from Germany). She and Ellen Cash are listed in the Federal census for 1860 and 1870 in Westmoreland Co PA.

Extended free access

A couple days ago, I posted about free access for records at between Aug 11 and 13. As it turns out this offer has been extended to Aug 18. I've been reading some list emails and some people say they've found useful stuff and some people have less luck. Worth a look, if you haven't tried it yet.
