My GGrandfather was Pankratz FINZEL, buried in Monaca, Beaver County, Pa. I know little about him, other than he was German. I understand there are some FIZELS in Western Maryland, and there may be a connection. Any ideas?

Surnames: LOGSDON

Date posted: Monday, February 17, 1997

I am researching the LOGSDON family from Allegheny Co. I am particularly interested in connecting Edward LOGSDON, born 1793, and father of Joseph LOGSDON, born 1818. Joseph was my great grandfather and this Edward MY gg-grandfather. I am unable to tie Edward to other LOGSDONs. We are quite sure that the Edward born Aug 15, 1752 is the key. Could Edward, b 1752, be the father of Edward b 1793? OR is there another generation between these two? Could anyone help make the connection? I know there are books about the LOGSDON family, but have not been able to get my hands on one yet. Does anyone have access to this info. Any help would be appreciated.

Surnames: CORFIELD, HUMBERTSON, PARKER, TOOTH

I am researching the name CORFIELD in Allegany/Garrett Counties. My GGGrandparents, William and Patience TOOTH CORFIELD, came to America in early 1870, from England. They came with their first child, Eliza. (My GGrandmother) I have found them in the 1880 Allegany County Census and also the 1900 Census. One son of William and Patience, (James) is listed in a history of Allegany County as serving as Sheriff in 1912. Another son, Oscar, died in 1915. The accounting of his will listed Oscar's wife as Julia and his father (William) as living as of that date. (Dec.9, 1915) My records show the family living in Lonaconing. Eliza married Charles H. PARKER on October 18, 1888. Charles was the youngest child of William and Rebecca HUMBERTSON PARKER. I haven't been able to find any death dates for William or Patience Corfield. I do have a "Golden" anniversary picture of the family in 1914. I would be happy to exchange info with anyone researching the CORFIELD name. Thank you!
