I am searching for information regarding James Lees b. 1790 in Staffordshire, England and his wife Mary Ann Mansfield Meyrick b. 1795 in Staffordshire, England. This couple and their children immigrated in 1845 to Danville, Montour, PA. James and Mary were listed on the 1850 Federal Census in Danville. The 1860 Federal Census lists only Mary living with her son John Lees--an iron roller in Danville. I would appreciate any information on this family. Thanks!

I'm researching SIMON CODER of Danville,N.Ward, Montour County, PA. Born 1805. Died before 1870. Wife: HANNAH. Children: ANGELINA, HARRISON, MARY & CLARK. Simon was a teamster. In 1870, HANNAH lives alone in Danville, 4th ward. In 1880 HANNAH lives with son CLARK on Church St., Danville. Before coming to Danville (after 1850), Simon resided in Catawissa, Columbia Co. In the 1850 census SIMON's name is recorded as SAMUEL. I believe SIMON is the brother of my gggrandfather DAVID CODER who migrated to the midwest. Who were SIMON's parents and siblings?

Joan Kistner Erickson
Looking for information to add on KISTNER/YEAGER/PLOTT/MOWREY families. My grandparents were Frank William and Ruth Ann Yeager Kistner of Danville. They lived on Chamber Street, the house is still there and we still have family members there. I am looking for more information on her father, Wellington Durant Yeager..I have the family group sheet, but not really any information about the family, where they came from, what they did for a living, and where they died and were buried. On the Mowrey side: Ruth Ann Yeager's mother was Jenny Mowrey...daughter of William Riley Mowrey....Jenney's brothers John and Elmer were well known in Danville area...but would like to know if anyone has anything else to offer that I could put in a scrapbook.... One of the problems I have come across deals with the first wife of Joseph Priestly Kistner, Frank William Kistner's father. The first wife, Mary Plott was the mother of Frank....later, don't know if she died or what...he married Mary Hoover and had other children, Clint, Claude, Lena, etc....I want to know what happened to Mary Plott and who her parents were....does anyone out there have the answer to this question...and if so, where is Mary Plott buried, and who was her family...I have a copy of the marriage application form that gives Frank Kistner's mother as Mary Plott and this confirmed family information...but still dead ends....

If you are researching this line or lines attached to these, please contact me and help me fill in the blank spots...I have submitted the information that I do have to the World FamilyTree Program, we are listed on cd #7.....if you have this, you can review what I do have and help add from there....Thank you for ABSOLUTELY any help....i'm in Fairbanks, Alaska and a really LONG way from getting access directly from Pennsylvania records....
