Other Montour County Pennsylvania Queries

I am searching for information regarding James Lees b. 1790 in
Staffordshire, England and his wife Mary Ann Mansfield Meyrick b. 1795
in Staffordshire, England. This couple and their children immigrated in
1845 to Danville, Montour, PA. James and Mary were listed on the 1850
Federal Census in Danville. The 1860 Federal Census lists only Mary
living with her son John Lees--an iron roller in Danville. I would
appreciate any information on this family. Thanks!
Elinor C Perlich
searching for descendants of George Billmeyer (b 8 Jan 1779), Martin

Margaret Himmelreich. My connection is their sister Sarah Himmelreich.

Patricia W. Kelley
I'm researching SIMON CODER of Danville,N.Ward, Montour County, PA.
Born 1805. Died before 1870. Wife: HANNAH. Children: ANGELINA,
HARRISON, MARY & CLARK. Simon was a teamster. In 1870, HANNAH lives
alone in Danville, 4th ward. In 1880 HANNAH lives with son CLARK on
Church St., Danville. Before coming to Danville (after 1850), Simon
resided in Catawissa, Columbia Co. In the 1850 census SIMON's name is
recorded as SAMUEL. I believe SIMON is the brother of my gggrandfather
DAVID CODER who migrated to the midwest. Who were SIMON's parents and
I would very much appreciate a search of D.H.B. Brower's Book about Danville, PA. JOSEPH LONG is referenced on page 112 according to an Index of persons by Dr. Darrell
Russell. My PA Joseph Long was born c. 1760.

Joan Kistner Erickson
Looking for information to add on KISTNER/YEAGER/PLOTT/MOWREY families.
My grandparents were Frank William and Ruth Ann Yeager Kistner of
Danville. They lived on Chamber Street, the house is still there and we
still have family members there. I am looking for more information on
her father, Wellington Durant Yeager..I have the family group sheet, but
not really any information about the family, where they came from, what
they did for a living, and where they died and were buried.
On the Mowrey side: Ruth Ann Yeager's mother was Jenny Mowrey...daughter
of William Riley Mowrey....Jenney's brothers John and Elmer were well
known in Danville area...but would like to know if anyone has anything
else to offer that I could put in a scrapbook....
One of the problems I have come across deals with the first wife of
Joseph Priestly Kistner, Frank William Kistner's father. The first wife,
Mary Plott was the mother of Frank....later, don't know if she died or
what...he married Mary Hoover and had other children, Clint, Claude,
Lena, etc....I want to know what happened to Mary Plott and who her
parents were....does anyone out there have the answer to this
question...and if so, where is Mary Plott buried, and who was her
family...I have a copy of the marriage application form that gives Frank
Kistner's mother as Mary Plott and this confirmed family
information...but still dead ends....
If you are researching this line or lines attached to these, please
contact me and help me fill in the blank spots...I have submitted the
information that I do have to the World FamilyTree Program, we are
listed on cd #7.....if you have this, you can review what I do have and
help add from there....Thank you for ABSOLUTELY any help....i'm in
Fairbanks, Alaska and a really LONG way from getting access directly
from Pennsylvania records....
