Subject: Death Records CUNNINGHAM St. John's Cemetery Bradford County
Date: Sun, 09 Mar 2008
I am trying to find a death record for a William Cunningham who is buried in the St. John's cemetery in Troy, Pennsylvania. I have contacted the parish in Canton, who has parish records for St. John's, but the death records do not go back that far. On their advice, I contacted the Diocese, both in Philadelphia and Scranton. But, so far, I have not been able to locate any records. Does anyone know if the records exist andwhere they are kept?
I am particularly interested in William Cunningham who died in August 1859. He is buried next to Henry Cunningham in Row 28. Henry Cunningham is the brother of my husband's great great grandfather, George Cunningham. We believe that William Cunningham is Henry and George's father, but do not have records that would help prove or disprove the theory. Any death record for Henry Cunningham who died in 1886 would be helpful.
Henry Cunningham came to live in Columbia around 1856 or 1857 from Fallsburg in Sullivan County, New York. We do not know if William Cunningham came with him or came from somewhere else to join Henry Cunningham. I don't have the dates for when the Cunninghams came to America from Ireland. We believe they came from County Roscommon, but have not been able to find them in the records in Ireland (despite three trips to Dublin).
Any information on any of the Cunninghams in Bradford County would be appreciated. We leave for another trip to Ireland in early April and I am trying to locate any and all information before I go. I have reviewed the census records and any available information on the wonderful Tri-County site.
Thanks! Kathleen Wheeler Ashton, Maryland
Hello, I am searching for the parentage of my gr.gr. grandfather, John Doing/Dowing/Dewing who lived in Bradford County in 1840 Ridgebury Census. I found him listed in 1850 in the Cussewago Twp., Crawford Co., Pa. tax rolls for 1848, along with David Doing, and J.F. Doing. John was listed in the 1850 - 1853 Crawford Co. tax rolls, and died on 20 Sep. 1853 in Crossingville. He is buried there.
I am trying to establish a connection to David Dewing/Doing who was listed in the 1850 Smithfield Twp., Bradford Co., Pa. Census next to a Hosley family from Vt. because David Doing was listed in the Crawford Co. tax rolls with John Doing. I believe David's wife, Sybil was a Hosley. According to the 1850 Cussewago, Crawford Co., Pa. census, John Doing was born about 1815. His wife was named Nancy, and they had one child, Francis aged 7 yrs, b. 1843. After John and Nancy Doing died, my gr. grandfather, Francis Doing b. 1843 was raised by Hopkins Stone, who was found in census and tax records of Cussewago Twp. at the same time as my Doing family lived there.
When Francis Doing (b 1843) grew up, he enlisted in the Civil War, fighting in the Battle of the Little Round Top. Francis or Frank as he was known, returned from the war, married, and is buried at Edinboro, Pa. His military papers state that he was born in Bradford County, so I am reasonably sure there is a connection to the Doing/Dewing families who can be found in records on your website but can't find proof.
If anyone has any information about this family, please contact me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hopefully, Shirley Thompson

Subject: ANGEL,. ANGELL
In 2003 Florence Ellis submitted information about the Peck Hill Cemetery in Windham, adding, "Reportedly, there are at least Pecks, Angels, and Rockerfellers, buried there." Does anyone know whether the Angels were Stephen Angel or Polly Angell or any of their children, who were neighbors of the Pecks in the 1850 US Census for Windham, Bradford County PA?

Subject: Bradford County Courthouse
I have been tasked with writing the 100 year history of the Peru, Indiana Courthouse. This courthouse was designed by Lehman and Schmitt of Cleveland, Ohio. I have supporting documentation that indicates that the Bradford County Courthouse was also designed by Lehman and Schmitt. If this is the case I intend to come to Bradford County to compare the design elements of the two courthouses. I have searched your web site for this information, but have come up empty handed. Is it possible that you can answer this question or forward my E-mail to someone who can.
Any Assistance you can provide will be much appreciated

Hello Ms. Tice....what a wonderful website you have put up!!
I am seeking information on Fred C. Lathrop (married Luella Rhone) , buried in Glenwood Cemetery in Troy.....i am seeking his parentage and was wondering if you had any information, if any, on the whereabouts of his folks. His daughter, Fannie Lathrop (married to Howard Hicks) was my great grandmother, she is buried in Canton (Teaberry Hill). I have been searching for Fred Lathrop's parents for many yrs now with no success. It is my understanding that his legal name was Charles Frederick Lathrop, but for whatever reason, he preferred to switch it around, tho that is based family chat.
If you or anyone you know may have a possible lead on his parentage, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
Thank you for your assistance
Reply from Ivan Hild:
though I do not know anything specific about Charles Frederick Lathrop, I would suspect that the family goes back to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, an important coal town in the last half of the 19th Century. A Judge Daniel Lathrop Rhone was born in 1838 and was elected to the Orphans Court in the 1880s. His daughter may have been Rosamond Dodson Rhone, author of several books circa 1900. She was married to a Dan L. Rhone. If you would wish to follow up on this lead, there is an excellent historical society in Wilkes-Barre with, I believe, a website.

Looking for any information on George B. Wells who was "supposedly" born in Terry Twsp., Bradford Co., PA in 4/1891 per the 1900 census. His father was Burton Wells (1859 - 1907) and Jessie Pratt (1860 - ?).
Any information on this person would be greatly appreciated as I am afraid of going down the wrong path with another George B. Wells I found in Sandy, Clearfied Co., PA in the 1920 census which is quite a distance from Bradford Co. and shows up in the WWI database with a birthdate of 6/26/1888. My George B. Wells shows a 4/1891 birthdate from the W. Pittston, Luzerne Co., PA 1900 census.

I'm researching one of my ancestors, a second great-grandfather named Amos Coburn Merrill (1824-1904). He was born in Warren Township, Pennsylvania, the son of Henry Leonard Merrill (1794-1875) and Polly-Marie Dewing (1792-????).
I know the ancestors of Henry Leonard Merrill but know nothing about Polly-Marie Dewing's ancestors, or how my Merrill ancestor acquired the name "Amos Coburn". In reading your Tri-Counties website, I see in your discussion of the history of Warren Township has references to an Amos Coburn and an Alexander Dewing. I suspect these are ancestors of Polly-Marie Dewing and that Amos Coburn Merrill is named after Amos Coburn, but I have not been able to prove these connections.
Can you help?
Thanks. Clay Stubbins
