e-mail address:

researching: Hague

HAGUE family history tells of two Hague brothers migrating to New Jersey and then to Bucks Co. Pa then to Chester Co. Pa in the late 1600's to the early 1700's. Francis Hague is the brother we descend from and are seeking information about. This Francis originated in Tracaden (England) according to the Marsden Monthly Meeting records. Does anyone know how I can get a copy of the Marsden Monthly records from the late 1600's? When Francis came to USA he married a Pleasant Pawlin (Millner) in 1700 in Bucks Co. PA> Does anyone have a copy of the records of their marriage? Or does anyone have the names of Pleasant Pawlin's parents? As you can tell, I am in need of direction and any advice on how to obtain these records would be greatly appreciated. Blevins once put some information on the internet about Francis' parents as William Hague and Mary Laurie, can anyone approve this or agree with this conclusion? Many thanks! --------------------------------------------------

researching: MYERS

Benjamin Myers of Philadelphia and Loudoun Co. VA is my brick wall. I know he had one son by his first wife and I am guessing the next 8 children by his second wife, Elizabeth GEORGE. I am descended from his last son, John George. Ben and Liz were Quaker. He bought 111 acres on Goose Creek in 1789 from Thomas and Lucy Cummings. He took a mtg on 1/2 of the mill owned by Janney and bought and sold various properties. At one point he reserved a parcel of land for a Quaker Meeting House. According to the Philadelphia Gazette he was advertizing properties for sale in parts of PA before moving to Loudoun Co. Is there anyone else in this land connected to this Benjamin? I would like to exchange information with anyone who might be. Sherry --------------------------------------------------

Thomas told them he had come after her and would take her or lose every drop of blood in his veins. He told them he had a good wife and she was willing and wanted him to bring his children home. Thomas had 8 children and his newly wedded wife had 3. This made for a good sized family, but they moved to the northeast corner of Shelby County on an 80 acre farm that Thomas purchased. They had 7 children by Thomas wife who died Aug. 22 1886. Thomas had 1 son at home at that time, Washington. They lived there a few years longer, then Thomas and Washington went to Greenfield and lived with Thomas's daughter Christian Addison Adams.

In addition I don't know if the other surnames were. --------------------------------------------------

My great-great-great grandmother, Julia Ann/Juliann/\Julyann, was a Quaker. She was a member of the Quaker church at West Grove in Harrison Co., OH. She was b. in VA and d. in Harrison Co., OH in 1906. She was marr. to Elisha Cox in 1852, Harrison Co., OH. I am trying to find the names of her parents, who were also possible Quakers. Does anyone know if the West Grove Quaker chuch in Harrison Co., OH still exists? If so, I would like to write to them to see if they have any information regarding this family. Any information anyone might have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Dawn --------------------------------------------------

I recently saw a movie in which the term "thee" is used for "you." I realized it was the second time I have seen the device used with reference to the Friends, and it started my wheels turning. In one of the movies, as well as on a post on this board, non-Quakers spoke of "theeing and thouing", yet in the movies, nobody ever used "thou" as a subjective pronoun. Only "thee" was used, both as subject and object. Furthermore, it was conjugated not to the second person, but the third. I would expect "thou go" or "thou goest", but the term used was "thee goes." I will not be surprised to learn that a formal form was used. Americans, like all Anglophones, are probably the only Europeans for whom an honorific "you" has fallen into disuse, and the idea that it could be resurrected by people who found it useful or necessary for their lifestyle seems realistic. However, I will be amazed to learn that the actual forms used are equivalent to "him go" rather than "he goes." Can someone tell me if the old form was used and, if it was indeed reformed (corrupted seems unkind when speaking of people of another time) to use forms such as "thee goes". Thank you. -Alan Siegal, lover of language and all it represents Queens, New York --------------------------------------------------

Does anyone happen to know if the list exists of who the actual signers were of the Concessions and Agreements? I know the document burned in 1686 - only 10 years after it was signed, but I am wondering if a copy has been found and if there is a list of these signers. --------------------------------------------------
