My Wyoming Valley (Luzerne County, PA) roots run deep, from the PA Dutch that settled the southern part of the valley in the the early 1800's to the Connecticut Yankess that settled the northern part of the valley in the late 1700's. Also in the past are some Welsh roots and more PA Dutch from Bucks, Berks,and Lehigh counties.
I am researching:
The Moser, Reeser, Kerschner, and Kurtz families of Berks County, PA
The Clouse, Carver, Mason, Gilman, Wheelock, Keithline, and Frear Families of Luzerne County and Wyoming County, PA. Carver, Gilman and Wheelock came from New England.
The Peter, Peters, Hess Families of the southern Wyoming Valley in Luzerne County that migrated from Lehigh (formerly Northampton) County, PA
The Keithline and Kichline Families of Bucks County,PA that settled in the southern part of the Wyoming Valley, Luzerne, PA ------------------------- Kurt D. Moser, Tunkhannock, PA
FYI Hello! I am writing about Memorial#17058558 Synthia Swane Lane. I noted that Willard D. Lane is listed as both a spouse and a child. Based on what I can see he is neither because he was born after she had already died. Just thought you would want to know. Bren
Mary Lyman Dailey A local researcher has indicated that Mary Lyman Dailey is the daughter of Joseph Lyman and Anne Hall. From the memorial that you created, Memorial # 22098139, I see that you suspect as much. I put in a edit request to link them up. Also I found where David Dailey, her husband is buried, and put in the link. Thank you for all your contributions. You have helped find many of my extended family. ~ D.
Sometimes I wonder why I'm determined, related family or not, whenever I run into these extended relatives, to virtually "put them back together" in memory this way. I guess it just makes me feel like I am honoring them.
RE: Andrew Mantanye Kurt, I am related to Andrew Montanye (as we spell it) from 3 branches of my family. Andrew's daughter Eliza married James Sickler. My grandfather Myron French is their decendant. Andrew's son David married into the William Jones family, my grandmother Dorothy Jones is their descendant, then Dorothy married Myron French, they were my mom's parents. By the way William Jones's father was Samuel Carver Jones who was born in Carverton, and named after the preacher I assume. Then on dad's side another Montanye married into the Denmon family ancestors, perhaps through the Schooleys, I don't have details about that one yet.
