Mrs. Barlow is conducting a Refinance with my company and I see that she is divorce. Unfortunitely her husband passed away after the divorce took place. Mrs. Barlow has given us a copy of her Divorce Decree but there is no settlement attached. She states that one was not provided to her and that it is not necessary for the state of Pennsylvania. However, in the Mortgage world verbal confirmation is not always acceptable. I need Documentation directly from the court showing whether or not there is a settlement statement. If there is not, I still need something documented for our file that states such. Please contact me ASAP. Toll free 877-324-1354 / Direct 626-927-3790.

The 6th day of May 1794 Personally came before me one Joseph ------------
County aforementioned Adam Bougher and Anna Maree Bougher
(THE REST IS NOT INTELLIGENT)
=============FOLLOW ON NOTES, BELOW========================The next step is to acquire the settlement of the estate and that shows who the girls married. Then the tax records show where they lived, township. One of the girls married a Smith. He died young and left her with several small children. The orphans court records show that two of these minor children choose the man on the adjoining farm to be guardian of the children. That man was Benedict Bucher or Bougher. Look at the 1790 PA Census and you should find Martin Bougher (Bucher, Bochur, Bocher). This is Martin Booher who moved to Sullivan Co. TN in about 1799. Once you find the Smith Guy that married the daughter and you look at the 1790 census look one name above or below him and you will see Benedict (different spelling) Bougher (Bucher,Bochur, Bocher or some spelling like that) This is John Benedict Booher who moved to Sullivan County TN. John Benedict Bougher is not visible in the PA records or the church records because he did not go by the name of John. John was the first name of all his brothers as well as his father.

I am researching the Hauer/Hower family and have received great help from the books by Charles C. Hower and Agnes Hower Wells "The Descendants of Hans Hauer of Neureuth, Germany" in 1973. and their follow up book "More Howers"
They have listed Maria Elizabeth Hauer born in 1776 in Lancaster Co. they write in their first book "According to Nyman family history, Elizabeth Hower was married 3 times, first to (George)? Woolever, (this must bee you man) secondly to ___ Holenbeck and thirdly John Nyman.' supposedly she had one child by each of her first 2 husbands.
If the research is correct, Elizabeth is the sister of Christian Hower, my wifes Great Great Great grandfather
Another listing is Elizabeth Hauer b.1769 in Tulphocken, Berks Co. who would have been Maria Elizabeth's cousin. so there must have been a tie between the two areas. I am from Reading, Pa.

Is there a published biography for Lawrence G. NOLL?
When did Lawrence G. NOLL die, and where was he buried?
Who were Lawrence G. NOLL's parents, and his other NOLL Family ancestors?

I have recently inherited some photos and came across a few with the surname NACE or RACE. One of the pictures has the following written on it: "taken at the home of Mr & Mrs Herman Nace/Race RD 2 Annville PA the people with the white hair Aug 31/41"
This is a picture of my grandfather, uncle, great-grandmother, an unknown man & woman (believed to be Mr & Mrs Nace/Race) and 3 unknown girls.
Two of the girls have a white section of hair at the forehead with the rest of their hair being dark. It is very possible that this is a very uncommon hereditary condition that you are born with and it is passed from generation to generation.
If any knows of this family, I would like to contact them.

I am trying to find the name of the county home (for orphans) that operated in Lebanon around 1845 and where the records for that home are at the present if they still exist. My great-great-grandfather, Patrick Gleason, was adopted from this home by a Dutch couple with the last name of Alwine. Patrick also had two brothers, Michael and Henry, that were adopted by others. Patrick came from Ireland around 1845 with his family. It is our understanding that the father died aboard ship. The mother remarried shortly after she arrived here, however her new husband would not accept her children and she put them in the county home. We do not know the name of Patrick's parents and are hopeful that if we can find the records of the county home, the names might be found in the paperwork. Some of our relatives are traveling to Ireland in the fall and are trying to find more information so they can look up the correct names and families in Ireland. Any help would be most appreciated.

I am trying to find the family of Thomas Morgan with wife Anna Scull. I believe they married in Lancaster County Caernarvon Twp and she from the Schull Scull Reading Pa family. Two sons are born and are located in the records of the Hill Church page 247 son William born July 20 1780 and THOMAS MORGAN born Nov 4 1782. I need this MORGAN family and any history that anyone may have about their lives in Lebanon County. If the name Lebanon County did not come except in 1813 what was it called in reference to LANCASTER, PA? Please help with the history of the county too.

I am very confused about the townships of Lebanon and Dauphin Cos. I have read the history of these....If I am presently looking for information about the Bee/Bea family who lived in Heidelberg Twsp(Dauphin County) in the 1800 census(also the 1790 census), what county would I be looking for? I think I found the father, John(whose name was spelled Bee 1790 then Bea in 1800). His son, Jacob,(I am assuming this) married Margaret Ries in 1808 at the Trinity Tulpehocken Reformed Church, Jackson Twsp, Lebanon County during that time period. There were also Ries families and I think, some interrelated ones like Clarck, Forney. Any help would certainly be appreciated.
