Subject:NOBLES of Brookfield township, Tioga County Pa.
Date:Wed, 22 Jun 2005 02:02:19 EDT

I am seeking information on where my 4th Great Grandfather AZEL NOBLES is buried. I have located every forefather going back to Connecticut in the early 1700's but for him. Azel was a patriot soldier of the revolution and a pioneer settler of Brookfield township in 1812 or 1815 (records vary). I have located him in the Deerfield 1820 census but then he is gone by the 1830 census and not found anywhere thereafter.

Any information anyone can offer is greatly appreciated. Thank you to all of you wonderful people, especially Joyce for a great site.

BUTLER, Almon --
Looking for any information on Almon H. Butler, his wife Elvera (Elvira?) and their children. According to his Civil War Military Record, Almon was born in Monson, Ma. in 1828, married Elvera in Ma. in 1847 and had two children, Josephine and Marcius, before leaving Ma. in 1854/55 for Delmar Township, Tioga County, Pa. Children Imogene, Oscar (my grandfather) and Mary were born there. Almon's Civil War Pension records seems to indicate that he died in 1887 and Elvera's death is listed in the newspaper as Dec. 1890 in Delmar, Tioga County, Pa. I don't know where they were buried.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Dale Butler

I am a descendant of John MAYNARD. I visited the Maynard Family Cemetery at Marshlands two weeks ago (June 2005). It is completely taken over by the forest and overgrowth. I would like it to be saved or restored. I have no knowledge of political and or legal aspects of township responsibility regarding this or mine. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Looking for baptism record for Sarah E. ROKENBRODT, born 1843


Church records copied by Hilda Chance for the Friedens Evangelical Lutheran Church, Liberty Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania has the baptism of Rosina Elizabeth ROKENBRODT, born 5 December 1837, listing the parents as Michael ROCKENBROOT and Eva Wallner. Also listed is the baptism of Joseph Augustus Belch ROGGENBRODT , born 11 March 1840, christened 3 May 1840 with the parents listed as Michael ROGGENBROD and Eva ULMER.

Believe that Sarah E. ROKENBRODT, born 19 August 1843, is a child of Michael ROGGENBRODT but am seeking verification.

Does anybody have access to the baptism records for that time and that church and if so, willing to check for subsequent baptismal records for Sarah E. ROKENBRODT?

Joyce...have been searching your site now for a month or so with no luck! Maybe you can help.Andey Thorpe was born May 5,1850 and died July 13,1914! Adney lived in Pennsylvania, probably the Potter Brook area or Elkland or Westfield! Adney was married to Mary Race Thorpe, born 1851 and died May 19,1910! Mary Race Thorpe was a full blooded Cherokee Indian! Adney & Mary Thorpe would be my Great Great Grandfather & Grandmother! Adney & Mary had two sons, Charles Thorpe, born Oct 7, 1874 and died in 1956 and Jason Thorpe who was born Sept 7, 1877 with date of death unknown! I am trying to determine where Adney & Mary are buried so I can get a death certificate from the town they died in! A death certificate will or should list Mary Race Thorpe's parents and possibly her tribe! When I was small (now 59) I use to visit the Potter Brook, Elkland area with my aunt & uncle to visit Carl & Hildra Thorpe! Carl passed away and Hildra lives in Elkland but I am unable to contact her as she may be in a nursing home or hospital. My uncle (79 now) was at the graves of Mary & Adney only once many years ago and he remembers them as being in the Potter Brook, Westfield or Elkland area up on a hill. Wish I were more help but that's all I have! Anything you can do to help would be appreciated.

Many Thanks, Earl Lergner..Rochester N.Y.

Dear Joyce,
My name is Cheryl Robertson. I live in Pepperell Mass. My father was born in Morris, Pa in 1930. His great grandfather was Alanson B Robertson. You have him listed in a town census for 1908-1909. His son was Frank Robertson and wife was Grace Blackwell. My grandfather, Lee n. Robertson was a carpenter and my grandmother ran a boarding house and drug store in Morris in the early to mid 1900's. I am trying to find out where Alanson came from and who preceded him. I am trying to trace my ancestors back to Scotland.

Do you have any information on him, or know how I could find out? I would appreciate any help you can give me as most of the older members of the family are deceased and I have no one to ask.

Thank-you. Cheryl Robertson

From: (norm west)

I am looking to find out about Jonathan WEST who is listed as the father of George Washington West on pg 762 of the History of Tioga County. Which states that G.W. West was a son of Jonathan West a Baptist Minister and was born ( G.W.W.) in Southport on Dec 12, 1818. It also states that G.W.W. moved to Troy, Bradford County before reaching manhood until he was 26 years of age (1845) When her then moved to Wellsboro, Tigoa County. Supposed G.W. spent his whole life in the Tri-County area but I can't locate him prior to 1845 in any of the records or his father ever.

I have looked at everything out there on you website that I thought was applicable. If I am not mistaken Southport in 1818 may have been part of Elmyra and I have not looked at 1820 Elmyra census for Jonathan West. Are there records out that would indicate Baptist ministers during that time ( I have looked in the Southport and other histories on your website to no aval). Also I have little sucess finding only a Simeon M. West in the 1840 Troy census but the household listings don't work out right for G.W. to have been part of his household.

Any direction or help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I would be interested in corresponding with anyone with knowledge of Erasmus Darwin Miller born in Howard, NY and marrying in Troupsburg, Steuben County, NY on February 13, 1836 to Amanda Rude, daughter of Henry Rude and Mary Hunt also of NY and then moving to Brookfield, Tioga County, PA with oldest daughter being born in 1848 in Brookfield, Tioga County, PA. It is our understanding that Erasmus was the local blacksmith but that is verbal history and unsubstantiated as yet.

Erasmus and Amanda had many children. He lost his oldest son, Erastus D. Miller in the Civil War in Blakely Alabama. His oldest daughter, Nancy Jane Miller married a William Oates while they resided later in Wisconsin and moved to England for several years. My line traces themselves from Nancy Jane Miller.

I am seeking information on Mahlon BROWN, eldest son of Daniel Warren Brown of Browntown, Bradford Co. I have seen information that suggested that he became a druggist in Utica, NY. Is he the same Mahlon Brownthat is listed in the Elmira, NY city directory for 1891 as "physician and surgeon" and as partner with Arthur G. Brown as "manufacturing chemists". Mahlon was brother to J. Watson Brown, MD who practiced in Ithaca, NY; to C. W. Brown, MD of Elmira and to D. Warren Brown, MD who practiced in Rochester, NY, Wyalusing, PA and Wheeling and Charleston ,WV. Another brother, Fremont Brown owned a drug store in Elmira during the 1880's and may also have been a physcian.

First of all WHAT A GREAT WEB SITE YOU HAVE. Many kudos for an OUTSTANDING JOB. I wasn't sure what e-mail address I should use to contact you. If I should need to re-direct this query or submit in another format, please let me know.

My GGGGreatgrandfather, Jacob Schriner, b Oct. 26, 1783 - d May 11, 1842, came to Liberty, Tioga County Area in the early 1800's. He settled in Jackson Twp., Lycoming Cty. He attended the Friedens's Evangelical Church, Liberty. I have been researching Schriners for over ten years. I have been trying to locate his parents and have hit the proverbial brick wall.

Here's what I know/have found: According to Friedens" church records he was born; Oct. 26, 1783. in Earl Twp. Lancaster County. I am a member of the Lancaster Cty. Hist. Society and have visited there several times in researching for Jacob parents. Have not found any birth record for a "Jacob" that matches the above birth date. The closest birth date found in Lancaster records was: Feb. 3, 1784.

Louise P. Kehler, of Liberty, was helpful in supplying some information on Jacob Schriner, from Frieden's church records There is some reference to a Jacob Sr., Revolutionary War Veteran, Jackson Twp., Lycoming Cty., 12/19/1775 to 12/18/1776, from Philadelphia, PA. This would be "pre" my Jacob and have not found any evidence that there was a Senior and a Junior Jacob. Have not sorted this comment out. Also my Jacob is mentioned in your "History of Tioga County, Pennsylvania" -"Liberty Township" . He can be found after the sub-paragraph; "A Business Directory" after the paragraph labeled "Among those who came in the next 25 years were the following": you will find Jacob Schreiner" my ggggrandfather. He is also listed in the "Genealogical Helps for Blockhouse Area", Vol. 1, Jackson Twp, Lycoming County and Liberty Twp. Tioga County" by Francis H. Maneval. In particular he is listed under the following years labeled; "1776 to 1781 and the year 1823 and the year 1831 and the year 1834 and the paragraph following the year 1835, noting his death.

I apologize for being so "windy" Any information you can supply as to where or what sources I can follow, would be appreciated greatly. Should we ever meet I would like to buy you dinner. You have done an outstanding job.

Bye for now.
