|Listed below are some early settlers where significant numbers of family members have been entered into the database:|
|John DENNY||John's parents were Richard Denney and Aseneth Booth of Philipstown, NY. But the probate records show another Denney, Richard, as an early settler in Susquehanna County. As Richard the father died in 1825 in New York and this Richard in 1840 in Susquehanna County, the question remains - How are these two early Denney settlers related?|
|Zipron COBB||Another family arriving from New York state. The town named
Mt. Cobb speaks well of the influence of this family in the early days.|
Benjamin's parents were Daniel and Hannah DECKER from Orange County, NY.
Alas DECKER was a common family name in Orange County. Can you help us find the
He married in Pennsylvania in the 1820s.|
Do you know if he had a family in Connecticut before the War of 1812?
Levi moved to Pike County from England about 1815 with his family and grandchildren.|
An early settler with connections to the Nine Partners moved into the Harford
area about 1795 with family and grandchildren.|
and his brother
Arriving from Massachusetts these two started the lines of Pickerings in
Northeastern Pennsylvania. There were so many by the late 1800s that we definitely
need help in identifying many of these later descendants. Can you help?
Benjamin was just one of many SNYDERs settling in Northeastern Pennsylvania in the
early 1800s. We suspect that most were related as they came from the Hudson River
valley of New York. But no certain linkage has been established. Can you help us
identify a common ancestor?
|Michael SPEARBECK||The SPARBECKs, as earlier records spell the name, arrived from the Albany NY area settling in Broome County, NY as well as Pennsylvania. Several of Michael's children served in the Civil War, again both from NY and PA. Can you help us trace what became of the sisters?|
The SWINGLEs were one of the earliest families in Wayne County settling primarily
in the region around Canaan Township.
