Janalee Garn
Richard Samuel LANE was b 9 Mar 1810 Huntingdon Co PA. He m Susan BLUNT 20 Oct 1838 Dresden, Muskingum, OH. I am trying to verify who Richard's mother was. His father was Samuel LANE b abt 1783 of Baltimore, MD. Samuel d 1818 Muskingum Co OH. Samuel's first wife was Malinda YERKER / YORKER. They m abt 1805 prob Huntingdon Co PA. I do not know when or where she d, Samuel came to OH in 1810 with his parents Richard LANE and Catherine GROOM. Samuel m second Elizabeth WILLIAMS 23 Oct 1814 Muskingum Co OH. Richard's b info is how he always gave it, but it may not be correct, because when his father d he was given up to guardianship and his age was given as under 5 yrs in 1818. That would make him Elizabeth's son. Since he was so young at the time he may not have know his true date of birth or place. I have not been able to find a YERKER / YORKER family in Huntingdon Co PA, but did find a Peter YOKUM living near Samuel LANE on the 1800 Census and a Jacob YOKUM living nearby. Maybe the name was mispelled. I would like to hear from anyone who knows anything about these surnames in PA and OH

Linda D.Allen
I am researching the MAGEE's from Hunt. Co. PA. I am specifically interested in William H. MAGEE born March 23, 1846 in Shade Gap, Hunt. Co. Pa., He died June 14, 1924 in Orbisonia, Hunt. Co. Pa. He married Martha Jane NEWTON on Sep. 1, 1870. She was the daughter of William H. NEWTON and Agnes APPLEBY. Willaim Left PA. and went to Preble County Ohio, where he met and married Martha J. NEWTON. Their 6 children were born in Israel Twp. Preble Co., Ohio: 1)William Alexander 2)Cora Agnes MAGEE(Locke) 3)Addie Catharine MAGEE, Thomas MAGEE, Sarah Emma MAGEE(Locke), Mattie E. MAGEE. After Martha J. NEWTON died Jan. 29, 1890, William MAGEE returned to PA. and then remarried Elizabeth OSLER. I have pictures of this family and their gravestones as well.



Eric Magill
I am researching my family history and have only been able to get to my great grandfather, John Leroy Magill, with any significant information. John Leroy was born in Baxter, Clover Township, Jefferson County, to William and May Moore Magill in 1879 and moved to DuBois, Cleafield County, in 1892 at the age of 13. He eventually married Emma Dinger on 2/22/1900. He was a foreman at John E. DuBois and Rockwell and a member of Lakeside Methodist Church. He died 3/22/1958 and she died 6/3/50. My grandfather was Earl Lance Magill, who grew up in DuBois, went to Indiana (Pa.) University, taught in DuBois schools for many years, and eventually became supervisor of Elementary Education. He was married to Mabel Irwin. He died 11/10/1986. My grandfather's brothers and sisters included Florence Kitchen, who married S.R. Kitchen of Kitchen's Dairy. His brothers were Mike "Purl" Magill and Allen Magill. His sisters were Helen and Winifred. My father is Earl Leroy Magill. He attended DuBois schools and became a United Methodist Minister. He graduated from DuBois High School in the late 1950s and is probably best remembered there for his drumming abilities. If anyone has any information on this family before my grandfather, I'd appreciate it. I'm especially interested in info on my great great grandfather William, who it would seem moved to DuBois in 1892 when my great grandfather John Leroy was 13 years old. I would especially like to hear from anyone who might know where my great great grandfather William was buried. Thank you in advance.

Ann W. Palmer
Isaac MARTZ and Carrie Jeannette MAGILL. Isaac was born at McAlevey Fort, Huntingdon Co. and I think Carrie was born in Jackson Twp, Huntingdon Co. They were married in Petersburg, Huntingdon Co. They had three children: Myrtle, H. Faye, and Ellenore. They also raised my grandmother Elizabeth Pearl MARTZ. Pearl's mother died due to childbirth complications and was given to Carrie, her aunt. Carrie was born March 28, 1878 and died June 6, 1964 in Hanover, PA. Pearl was born March 25, 1903. >From a soundex card, I know that John and Lydia MAGILL lived in Jackson Twp in 1880. They had two daughters, Carrie and Agnes. By the ages, John MAGILL would have been born approximately in 1851 and his wife Lydia in 1852. At some point, I believe Isaac and Carrie moved to Mifflin Co. Pearl Martz married John Sherman STEELE in 1918. They moved from Mifflin Co to Huntingdon (city) about 1931-32 and lived there until they died: Sherman in 1974 and Pearl in 1989. I would like to know more about the MAGILL, MARTZ, and STEELE families.



Ann W Palmer Sun Apr 6 08:39:57 1997
Am looking for information on the families of Isaac MARTZ and Carrie Jeannette MAGILL. Isaac was born at McAlevey Fort, Huntingdon Co. and I think Carrie was born in Jackson Twp, Huntingdon. They were married in the early 1900's in Petersburg, Huntingdon Co. They had three children: Myrtle, H. Faye, and Ellenore. They also raised my grandmother Elizabeth Pearl MARTZ. Pearl's mother died due to childbirth complications and was given to Carrie, her aunt. Carrie was born March 28, 1878 and died June 6, 1964 in Hanover, PA. She is buried in Gettysburg. I think Pearl's mother was Sarah Agnes MAGILL(b Jan 20, 1880; d Apr 8, 1903). I have no information on Pearl's father. Family story is that he was young and not prepared for the responsibility and went West, never to be heard from. Pearl was born March 25, 1903. From a soundex card, I know that John and Lydia Magill lived in Jackson Twp in 1880. They had two daughters, Carrie and Agnes. By the ages, John MAGILL would have been born approximately in 1851 and his wife Lydia in 1852. At some point, I believe Isaac and Carrie moved to Mifflin Co. as I think Pearl, my grandmother, attended school in Mifflin. She was a student of my grandfather, John Sherman STEELE. They married when Pearl was 15. Sherman was born in Alfarada, Mifflin County. My mother, Gladys STEELE, was born in Union Twp, Mifflin County. I am making an assumption that my grandfather taught school in Mifflin from the fact that he was born there, and after marrying, his first child was born there. I would like to know more about the MAGILL, MARTZ, and STEELE families.

Wally Garchow
I am in possession of an old Bible. It is signed as being owned by Robert McNEAL. Below his name is written "Clinton Co., Indiana". Sure enough, I find a Robert McNEAL in the 1860 census with wife(?) Susan in Clinton Co., IN. But at the back of the Bible are several inscriptions which give me the impression this Bible was presented to MY ancestor Robert McNEAL who lived in Huntingdon Co., PA, and was NEVER, to my knowledge, in Clinton Co. This Bible passed down in descendants of the Huntingdon Co. Robert who was at least 20 years younger than the one in Indiana. Since I know the Indiana Robert is not mine, WHO IS HE? And what were my ancestor's descendants doing with a Bible that had "Clinton Co., IN" written in it? In 1850 the Robert McNEAL of Indiana was living unmarried with a JEFFERIES family. I know that my ancestor Robert had a great aunt who married into the JEFFERS or JEFFERIS family (spelling from the 1897 BIOGRAPHICAL COMMEMORATIVE OF JUNIATA VALLEY). Could this indicate that the Robert of Indiana was from Huntingdon Co.? All the census says is PA for place of birth. Can anyone help with more McNEAL downlines from this Huntingdon Co. family???

Looking for the parents of Elizabeth POSTEN (POSTE, POSTEY) born in 1827 in Pa. probably Huntingdon or Northampton Co. She married Jacob M. WISE 1-15-1846 in Huntingdon Co.(she was from Hares Valley, Cass Twp. and he was from Allensville, Mifflin Co.) She died in 1898 in Cumberland, Allegany Co., Md. Was buried in Rose Hill Cem., Cumberland. The only Postens I've found in Huntingdon Co.(1820-60 census) so far are Cornelius, William, James, John and Jacob, the latter could possibly be her father. The only other Postens in Pa. were in Norhampton / Monroe Co. I'd love to talk to anyone who has any information on any POSTEN, POSTE or POSTEY. There were so few in Pa. that they must connect somewhere. Thanks for your help.
