ALLEN see Knapp
AMES Is there someone who goes to the Tioga County Historical Society and can check for me the indexed surname card files and also the family surname files to see if there is anything at all on the surname of AMES/EAMES that has been submitted ? I certainly can use some new leads to break down the brick wall I have been facing for years. Olive Hoffman
AMES see Knowlton
AMES Lydia AMES of Sullivan Twp (born 15 Nov 1820) md. Benjamin KNOWLTON, s/o Timothy, born 6 Dec 1822, Sullivan Twp; they were md. 15 Sept 1845 (He had a Brother Andrew). Does anyone know who the parents of Lydia and Benjamin were and/or where Lydia and Benjamin are buried? In 1845 they move to Illinois, returned to Sullivan Twp about 1862, purchased land in the southern part of Shippen Twp., Tioga County, died there. (This from History of Tioga County 1897) I have searched the most likely cemeteries in/near where they were born and/or lived and they are not there. AMES & KNOWLTON are both ancestral families of mine and I would like to to be able to make a connection. Olive Hoffman

BAXTER My name is Linda Brown and I'm looking for information on my great grandparents John BAXTER and Elizabeth MCPHERSON. My grandfather was born December 18, 1870 (Luzerne County is what is stated on a marriage license). His father died and his mother put him in an orphanage along with two brothers. No other information is known. If anyone has access to the 1880 census for orphanages in your area, I am looking for a John Halscomb or Holcomb BAXTER and any other BAXTERs who would have been children at that time. He is not listed on any of the census for the orphan homes presently on line. Both of my great grandparents were from Scotland. There is an Elizabeth MCPHERSON who is listed on a census from Susquehanna age 24 and another in Bradford age 48. Unfortunately I don't know the year of the census - it was sent to me by another user. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Linda Brown
BLAIR see Pryde
BLAKELEE Is anyone aware of reason why people in the early 1800's would have migrated from Tioga County in New York, to Tioga County in PA? I seem to have a line of BLAKELEE'S and DICKINSON'S, also JACKSON'S, SEELEY'S, SATTERLEE'S, SAYRE'S and DUNNE'S who all ended up there. i'm trying to see if there are reasons they would have gone, besides family which is obvious but I cant find the family connections to get them together there, family, state all seem the most obvious but I cant find those either.

BLISS Looking for: Any information on Charles H. VAN ZILE and Carrie BLISS - I know that Carrie BLISS was born in 1869 and died November 4, 1952. She may be buried in Lawrenceville, PA. I need to know her actual birthdate. Also, her mother and father's names were Alonzo H. BLISS and Rose MCCASLIN. I need as much information on both of those that I can get. Charles H. VAN ZILE was born in 1860 and died in Lawrenceville, PA on November 27, 1936. I also need his actual birthdate and parents names as well. If I can obtain his birth certificate with an actual birthdate I'd probably be able to find out his parents names. Any information of either of these two people would be extremely helpful! Penny M.

FIELD Hi Joyce. I'm still searching for info on my mysterious gggranfather ______FIELD. I have learned that his wife (my gggrandmother) was Martha Jane MCEWEN, b. April 17, 1821. They had a son (my ggrandfather) George Washington Field, b. Nov or Dec (conflicting dates) in 1840. Both Martha and George were born in Tioga Co. PA. We have learned that Martha was a widow at the time she moved to Illinois with George and is found in the 1850 Madison Co., IL census married to John KEOWN. She (Martha McEwen apparently was married in Tioga Co. to her first husband ______FIELD. We can estimate the marriage date to be abt. 1839. A marriage certificate for ______Field, Martha Jane McEwen or a birth cert. for George Washington Field would be fantastic. How can these be obtained? Thank you very much for your help now and also the help given me in the past.  Jack D. Davis
FISHER-AMES I have information on Levi Fisher AMES, born 1841in Sullivan, Tioga, PA, son of Walter Whipple Ames and first wife Lucinda PITTS - Levi is of the same EAMES/AMES family I have been chasing for several years.

In April of this year, Keith VAN DENZEN was asking about FISHER-AMES, but it seems the e-mail address given at that time is no longer valid, my messages have been returned. Hope this information reaches him or anyone else who is interested in AMES from Tioga County.  Olive Hoffman

FLOYD Hi Joyce. Its Fred Parker again. My exchanges concerning this family have led to a discovery which may be of interest to anyone following them. One of the children was a son Lyman. I have two deeds executed between Lyman and Charles FLOYD (my great uncle). The first executed in 1905 shows Lyman and his wife Kate living in the borough of Nanticoke, County of Luzerne, state of PA. The second executed in 1908 shows the same couple living in the town of Waverly, county of Lackawanna, state of PA. The property was 50 acres along the Chemung river. I have passed this info the Ernie Miles. Hope you find someone that needs it. Fred Parker

FRASIER I went through the list of lookups and did not see what I am looking for. So will put this out on the list and maybe someone has the book and can look it up for me. My GG Grandfather, Andrew FRASIER died in 1900 and his obituary stated that he was buried in Sabinsville. I have gone over all the cemeteries listed for Clymer township and surrounding townships and can not find a listing of his burial. His wife is burried in the Sabinsville cemetery as Mrs Betsey M. WHITE Frasier but there is no mention of Andrew. Could some kind soul look in the cemetery listings and see if we can round this guy up? I would deeply appreciate it. Thank you in advance.  Harold Hooper

FULLER see Downing
FULLER In the 1850 census for Richmond Twp., Tioga, PA is a FULLER family listed as part of Dwelling/Family No. 1- both males are listed as "Innkeeper" and this census was taken at the hotel. The first family shown is Samuel HUNT and wife and child; then is Gurdon FULLER (40; born NY); Sally (33; born NY); Royal A. ((7); born PA); Eldon A. (5; born PA)- can anyone identify this Gurdon FULLER- it is not the son of Abel FULLER and Elizabeth (Betsey) GROVER - that Gurdon had a wife named Phoebe at the time and was living in Bradford County. I am taking all of the information I can find on Fullers of PA and trying to piece it together, hoping to find a clue that will lead me back further, to the Fullers of NY and Mass.  Olive Hoffman

LATTIN Enjoyed seeing your web page. I have read alot about your area in my search for LATTIN Family history. The LATTIN Family Reunions were in the area in the 1920's....hosted by "Cousin Frank LATTIN". Our LATTIN came from Conn., settled in your area, then returned to Conn., then made the big jump to the Midwest....Missouri & Wisconsin. Our LATTIN Family member is Horace (Birdsell or Birdeye) LATTIN. I was in touch with a Charles LATTIN's sister years ago. Their family had the old Inn where a French Royal made a stop in the 1700's. Keep up the good work. If you run across a LATTIN who wants to correspond with another LATTIN.....give them my E-mail address. Thanks. William Lattin
LAWRENCE Hello all, in our search for the ancestors of Benjamin and Jonathan LAWRENCE, a recently located tax listing shows these two names in 1814 in Tioga county at ages 28 and 24 listed with Henry LAWRENCE, age 46. This fits our Benjamin and Jonathan as Henry's sons, which is a big help, and we found a Henry LAWRENCE in the 1810 census at age group 26 to 45, along with a listing for Jonathan (head of his own household) age 16-18. My question is this: Was Lawrence Corners founded by Henry (whose burial is not found there) or Benjamin, who is buried there? What was the area called before it was Lawrence Corners, and what cemetery would be likely for Henry in that area? Well, another question: I want to order newspaper microfilm in hope of finding an obit for Henry. I haven't narrowed the year down enough, yet, though he's not on the 1820 census, but what would be the likely newspaper for the Tioga county area in 1815 to 1850? We found the Welby Lawrence obit in the 1906 Mansfield Advertiser, but at that time he lived in Roseville. Thanks again for all your help. Linda Lawrence

MONRO Interested in the following that are listed in your database: MONRO (etc.) Mary and Cornelia were living in Milan, Ulster Twsp. Bradford Co. in the 1870's; don't know if they were mother and daughter or sisters. Marvin MONRO(E) married a Ms. PATTERSON and had at least three children; of these was a son Marvin who went to Michigan; a daughter Lydia Ann Monroe born ca. 1810 in Delaware Co., NY, married in 1830 in NY, possibly in Broome Co., to Henry J. MEIGS and went to Wisconsin in 1854. Mary and Cornelia may be other children of Marvin (Sr.) and (Ms. Patterson) MONROE, or, as I said, Mary or Cornelia may be the widow of Marvin Sr. Sorry, I have not yet checked the 1880 census of Bradford Co. to see if I could find them for more data on ages etc. Also interested in the PATTERSON and JESSUP lines that both came out of Delaware Co., NY and settled in Tioga Co.

REVEREND MORSE I received a copy of my great grandmothers obituary recently - and the copy was in such bad condition that I was unable to make out a few words. She died in 1900 - the funeral occurred on 6/28/1900 and was officiated by the Reverand xxxnnemxx of Liberty. She was buried in the cemetery at Hart's church. Does anyone know how I can find out the name of the minister? I can't make out the first 3-4 letters and the last 2 letters of his name. Also - one of my great uncles was named after a friend that lived in the community (I believe) - his name was Eliston Perot MORSE or MORRIS. Is anyone familier with this person?

His wife was born in Woodbury, CT and died in Ohio in 1838. Zepheniah received a pension for his service with the CT line during the Revolutionary War. It was discontinued later because he had too much property. The couple had nine children. The second of these, Zephaniah R. ROGERS, is my direct ancestor. He married twice, and I am of his second marriage to Matilda (FOLEY) Phillips, a widow. He and Matilda moved to Iowa in 1846 where she died in 1866 and he died "six days short of his 99th birthday" on September 6, 1872. I have all the names, dates, and family info, if you would like it. Just let me know.  Nancy A. Coleman

SATTERLEE Hi Joyce. I was following the Elisha SATTERLEE clan into Athens Twp of Bradford Co, from Luzerne Co PA, and also noted a James SWARTWOOD living in Athens Twp. My main point of research is the Earl family, found first in 1762 in Middle Smithfield Twp of what now is Monroe Co PA. One daughter (Martha) of Ebenezer EARL married a James SWARTWOOD. Most of the Swartwoods then moved up to the region around Tioga Co NY, some with a stop off in the Wyoming Valley. Helen GRAVES is a descendant of this marriage, and is someone in our Earl research group who is also actively looking at the Swartwoods. Any insight you had for me or Helen would be greatly appreciated. Jim Hannum

WEBB I am trying to gather some information on my G-Grandfather,Samuel WEBB,who lived in Wellsboro around 1883/1895. Would the town be listed in a City Directory for those years? Samuel would have worked in the Coal Mines,I think,since thats what he did when he lived in Moosic,Pa. He was Married to my G-Grandmother,Olive V. DECKER and had two Sons. Charles was born in 1858 in Elmira,N.Y. George was born in Moosic,Pa. About 1882 Samuel left my G-Grandmother and took up with another Woman named Olive SCOTT. They had several sons,one of which was a Harry Webb who was born in Wellsboro around 1882/83. They also had a son named Alonzo and one named Samuel after my G-Grandfather. He may have died in that area. Any help or direction you could provide would be appreciated.  Lyell R. Webb
