|Bio and Links|
I was raised in Wells Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in the beautiful Seeley Creek Valley and still live in the valley 1/8 mile from where I was raised on the New York side of the state line in the town of Southport. My interest in genealogy and history began at a very early age and before I could drive my parents were transporting me to court houses and historical societies to do research. Very few thought of a kid as a serious prospect but I continued to evolve and while at nearby Elmira College I was often researching my ancestry and transcribing markers when I wasn't studying. My paternal side has only been here since the 1800's from England and Wales where as my maternal side goes back to the Mayflower (7 couples and the Hopkins family 3 times), early Dutch, French Huguenots, early Puritans, and early Germans. Most concentrated in New England and Sussex County, New Jersey and thence migrated to Wells Township in Bradford County, Pennsylvania where I descend from Bowman, Cory, Joralemon, Killgore, Noble, Pellet, VanKirk. I have published articles for several historical society journals and have done extensive research on the Loyalist families on the Susquehanna River prior to and during the American Revolution with an article titled "Loyalist Plantations On The Susquehanna." My community involvement extends on both sides of the state line - Past President and current Board of Trustees of Bradford County Historical Society and President Elect, Tioga Point Museum Board and past Secretary, Chemung County Historical Society Board, Chemung County Historian, Town of Southport Historian.|

You're very welcome- glad I could help!

I made a note about her birth year in her bio....The grave marker says 1823 so that is what I had to leave as a birth year.... I doubt her parents had two children within 10 months but it has happened before...
Thank you so much!

Thank you, Kelsey, for your prompt attention to this request.
Are you taking care of all of Rob Minteer's submissions in the Tri-County area now?

Thank you for taking time to get this picture for me, I know it probably wasn't easy since it is so old and on the ground. I do appreciate having the photo since I am unable to get there to see it myself. Thank you for bringing me closer to my family! Vonna
