Edward A. Scriven
Query: CENTRE COUNTY: NIXON, HERRINGTON, DAWSON I would like information on James NIXON and his wife, Elizabeth, maiden name THOMAS. What I know is he was born supposedly 4 Jan 1846 in Scotland, son of John NIXON. I would like to find any of his descendants who could confirm the date, give me the place in Scotland where he was born, and his mother's name. He married Elizabeth THOMAS around 1870 to 1876, probably in Mercer County, PA. She was born 3 Apr 1851 in Panteague, Monmouthshire, Wales (this shire is now in England, but the populus consider themselves Welsh.) Her parents were Henry THOMAS and Ann ORAM. They emigrated from Wales just before 1870 and worked in coal mines in and around Mercer County, PA for a little while before moving out west. Elizabeth and a sister, Mary Ann, who had married a John MC DOWELL, remained in PA. I'd like to find out when and where James and Elizabeth married. James died in Rush Township on 5 May 1928. Elizabeth died in Rush Twp, on 21 Oct 1933. Their children then were listed as John NIXON, James NIXON, Jr., Eva HERRINGTON, Sarah DAWSON, Windom NIXON, Sheridan NIXON, and Samuel NIXON. The names Eva, Windom, and Samuel are significant as Elizabeth had a sister & 2 brothers with those names who went West with the larger part of the family. If there are any descendants of this couple through any of these children who are interested in genealogy and can fill in my data, please contact me. I can share what I have on the THOMAS/ORAM line for about 2 to 4 generations, too. Thanks, Ed Scriven

My gg grandparents, Jacob or John Jacob SHANER and wife Mary Elizabeth "Peggy" FRIEL (possibly originally O'FRIEL) were in Boggs Twp in1850. No one in the family still in PA knows where they were buried or has any further information. An obituary would be wonderful. Neither of their surnames are on your name lists. Any information would be appreciated! Marge Wilcox.

Query: I am seeking information on my great grandmother, Margaret MILES (1849-1926), who married David O. GARDNER. Although the Gardners lived in Renovo, I suspect that Margaret descends from families of the Milesburg and Bellefonte area. Specifically, I am trying to ascertain Margaret Miles Gardner's parents' names. I have identified a Joseph Miles, b. January 24, 1816, and who married a Margaret Newell. The couple were living in Bellefonte in 1844 (5 years before my great grandmother's birth). Since the dates make the relationship plausible, and since the names "Joseph" and "Margaret" are extremely common in the Gardner family, I think it's worth pursuing this thread. (Margaret Miles Gardner named one of her daughters (my grandmother) "Margaret" and one of her sons "Joseph" for instance. Will appreciate any information and am willing to share all that I have.
