Wayne County Bios
Data on this page has been submitted by Dan Felkins. The letters (approx 50) were found about 50 years ago(1950) in a trunk in a landfill, dating from 1803 through the Civil War. Other prominent names in these letters are: Cable (cousins to the Palmer family), Hine and Walling. Some of them show delivery to or from Orson, Mount Pleasant, Wayne County, PA.
All of the letters are Palmer family members and acquaintances.
Three of the Palmer family members buried in the Orson (Hine) Cemetery are mentioned in some of the letters. Dan also has many letters written by Jane Palmer (wife of Comfort Palmer) to her son Abner, a sergeant in the Civil War.
