Subj: Hortons in Tioga County
Date: 10/18/2004 1:02:10 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: (B. Lamb)

Looking for information on Thomas, Daniel or Isaac HORTON who were listed as living in Middlebury Township in 1836. They were presumably brothers. They may have left that township before 1850 as they do not appear on that census.

Interested in any reference to the above Hortons, from church, cemetery or family records.

Thank you Barbara Lamb

I am searching for information on the BURRELL family of Tioga and Bradford counties, Pennsylvania. Peter S. BURRELL is my 4th great grandfather. He was born on 30 May 1802 in Delaware County, New York and died in 1882 in White County, Illinois. He is the son of John BURRELL and Susannah Smith from Norfolk County, Massachusetts. John and Susannah BURRELL had twelve children: Silas, David, Noah, twins (died at birth), John, Asa, Peter, Caleb, Ward, Jonathan, and Susannah.

I found Peter S. BURRELL in the 1830 Census of Rutland, Tioga, Pennsylvania with his two brothers, Silas and Caleb. Peter was married and had one son. I am searching for the name of his first wife. I believe he was married in Pennsylvania in the 1820s. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Susan Wiscombe

Date: 10/04/2004 12:44:49 AM Eastern Daylight Time
To: TriCountie

Lelia BALDWIN of Tioga County is my 2nd great grandmother and lived in Tioga in the 1860 & 1870 Census. Her father is William BALDWIN who was 31 in 1860. In 1860 I don't see a mother listed but in 1870 Sarah BALDwin is listed with the family. I don't know if she is Lelia's mother, Lelia had siblings Ida,John, Mary, & Jenny. Lelia was 5 in 1860. I also show Williams mother Louisa was living with him in 1870 and she was 76 years old.

If anyone else is researching or has any information please contact me. I would love to share what I have and get new information as well.
