I am a second generation Polish American on both sides of my family. The Genealogy Society I belong to introduced me to Find A Grave. I am very thankful to all who contribute. I was thrilled to find mine & my husband's family members here.
I am married to my boyfriend that I went steady with for 5 years & now am married to for 46 years. We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren. We are native Pennsylvanians, transplanted into the sandy soil of Florida.
As I was working on our famlies' genealogies a friend who was one of my babysitters along with her sister who was also my hero, sent me photos they took of me. The one I'm using for my profile was when my hero, taught me how to blow bubbles with bubble gum after my mom couldn't for weeks!
Research shows that James McKillop, Sr. #29173567 is a younger brother to Dan #31339855; the spouse of James is Mary Mahlen McKillop #29173569. James and Mary did have a daughter by the name of Margaret #31107290 whom married Charles Kearney.
Confirmation of above was obtained through the obituary of James McKillop and other sources.
Hope this helps you out regarding your interest in the surname of McKillop.
RE: message No problem. I expect to be in PA for about three or four days next month - going home for my mother's 80th birthday! I will try to get out to the places that you mentioned and see what I can find.
Robert H Knox his father Samuel Knox: this from Indiana Gazette, 8 Apr 1918
headline: Samuel Knox Killed By Train
The funeral services for Samuel Knox, a well known Civil War veteran and resident of Marchand , who was accidently killed by a B.R.&P. train near Locust, late Saturday morning, were conducted in the Covode church this afternoon at 1 o'clock and interment was made in the church graveyard.
Robert H Knox found this on Robert's mother 1 Jun 1909 Indiana Gazette which also gives his father's name
Mrs. Catherine Blakely Knox died at her home near Marchand on Friday, May 24 aged 89 years. Death was due to heart failure. She was married twice, first to Robert Blakely, in 1851 and the second time to Samuel Knox. Mrs. Knox is survived by these children: J.T.Blakely, Covode; Mrs. S.A. Blose, DuBois; H.H. Blakely, Young township; Clark Knox of Pittsburgh and Robert H. Knox at home. One brother, M. H. Henry of Blairsville, also survived. Funeral services were held at her late home on Monday afternoon, May 31 and interment was made in the Presbyterian graveyard at Covode.
Robert Knox Sorry, not related to this family. Entered some of the burials from online obituaries. Do you have access to Ancestry? I've found some info in old newspapers forinstance, The Indiana Gazette has oodles of info on Knox.
Saw this in Indiana Gazette 8 Apr 1933: Mrs. Calvin Blose, died in Omaha, NE age 78 years, had moved there in 1932 from Punxsutawney. Survived by husband, daughter, Mrs. Emory Williams, sons, Wilson and Clyde Blose of Sharpsburg, PA; one brother J. F. Blakley, DuBois and half brothers Clark Knox, Pittsburgh and Robert Knox, Marchand. (Sounds like their mother was married at least twice)
I will see what else there may be on the web. What/who do you know about this family so far?
