Jim Burnell
Query: It's 1999 and time to renew my Centre County query. My great- grandmother was Effie SNYDER, supposedly of Centre Hall, Centre County. Unfortunately, I know precious little else! My grandfather, Roy Wheeler BURNELL, was born to Effie and Henry BURNELL in North Bend, Clinton County, in 1894. There was an older son James. Henry was (supposedly) an Irish immigrant, working the logging camps. I know nothing more about Effie. Neither appear in either the 1880 or 1900 PA census. For whatever it's worth, there is an Effie Snyder in Milesburg in the 1890 census "remnant" from Centre County available on this site. She also does not appear in the bracketing censuses. I would be eternally grateful for any information on Effie, her origins, or her whereabouts. Even ideas on where I can look (from a distance) or look-ups I can request would be welcome. Thanks and best of luck. Jim Burnell

Are there any maps from the late 1800's (as I've seen for other counties in PA) that would show the location of this farm with one of the above names? If so, where could I write to have someone copy that portion of the map so I can locate the farm on my next visit to Centre County?

After that marriage she had another 6 children and at some point married a John Davis of Philipsburg. Some of her children's names included Vioma and Elizabeth but I'm not sure what family name the children carried. My grandfather is Albert Leo Young (Sr) and was born 10/14/1911.

Stories have it that Alma had a 'sleeping illness' and gave my grandfather to the man who was believed to be his father and his wife to take care of. Any clues or information would be appreciated.

After Robert & Jane got married they moved to Barnesboro, PA in Cambria County and bought a Bakery..named Taylor's bakery in 1906. Robert was born in 1863, died 1940. The family suspected them to be from England, but no proof yet. Samuel Taylor is believed to be Robert's brother, was born Jan 1864, died Nov 1905, at age 41. Alice was Samuel's wife, we don't know maiden names yet. Please e-mail or call 1-800-867-7802 if you have any information, as I do have a family tree chart on what we have right now. I would be happy to forward it if it helps us find someone in the family. Any help is greatly appreciated! Ken & Robyn Taylor 1302 W. Poplar St. York, PA 17404
