My father Russell Lloyd ABERCROMBIE gave me a copy of a letter written in May, 1939 to his father's cousin Lyda ABERCROMBIE addr essed Frank., P.O. Box 126, Pa. The letter was a response to her mailing family genealogy to Charles J. ABERCROMBIE who was at 72 Lebanon Gardens, London, England. Each of them apparently had a great deal of family information compiled. He said he intended to write a book. I want to know if anyone knows of Lyda, her genealogy work and where it might be. I understand she never married and so am hoping the data was given to a library or historical society. Charles mentioned in his letter that a Robt. ABERCROMBIE of Irvington NY had the old Family Bible from the late Rev. Charles ABERCROMBIE of Bridgeport, CT. Lyda's g grandparents were my ggg grandparents, James ABERCROMBIE and Janet GARDINER/GARDNER from Scotland. This couple had 7 children: David, Isabella, James, Mary, John, Robert and Charles who is my gg grandfather, b.27 Aug 1827 d 1 July 1902 and who married Janet (Jeanet) PRITCHARD on 1 August 1851. They apparently came to the US while she was pregnant with my g grandfather James Russell ABERCROMBIE b. 6 Mar 1854. I have not yet found his place of birth. My g grandfather James Russell ABERCROMBIE died 19 Mar 1925 at his son Charles Russell ABERCROMBIE'S home at 757 Loretta Street in Pittsburg. (Charles Russell was born in Industry, Beaver Co., PA on 9 Mar 1894 and died 29 Nov 1972 in Meadville, Crawford Co.)757 Loretta St. is also where my father Russell Lloyd was born 27 Aug 1917.

According to his obituary the family moved when he was a "small boy" to Meadville, Crawford Co.PA.He may have had a brother named Michael. Their father could have been involved in a pottery or related industry. None of these PARKERS appear in ALLEGANY AND ITS' PEOPLE, A CENTENNIAL MEMORIAL HISTORY 1795-1895 so hoping someone may have some other resources. I am willing to reimburse for expenses if needed.

YOUNGSON, GEORGE. I am looking for my gggrandfather George Youngson b. 1830 to 1840s, In Pittsburg. He was married and they moved to Australia with there two children. His wife had died shortly after there arrival. George remarried my gggrandmother, Louisa Ryan and had at least two more children. Louisa died during child birth or shortly after. George left Australia (Where??)(when??) We think he took his two older children from his first marriage, since there were not any records found on these children. I have quite a bit more information. If anybody has a George Youngson in there family tree, please contact me. I have been searching for a long time. I think this man has disappeared into thin air. Natalie Warners
