Comments:
William Welch, b. 11 Dec 1800, Windham, CT d. 29 Dec 1839 near Johnstown, PA. m. 22 Jun 1826 to Rachel Maria Harris. Trying to locate which cemetery in Cambria Co. William Welch is buried in. His wife Rachel, is buried in Lock Haven, PA. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You. Listed below is my ggg grandfathers obit:

THE MOUNTAINEER, Ebensburg, PA January 8 1840
We are sorry to state that the late snow storm has caused the death of Mr. William Welch, of Johnstown, one of our most respectable and enterprising citizens. He started from Johnstown on Friday the 27th about noon on his way to Hollidaysburg, intending to go as far as the summit that evening. Owing to the violence of the storm and the state of the road, he did not reach no. 2 until late in the afternoon, where he left his sleigh and endeavored to reach the sumit on horseback. He did not get further than plane 4 that night and proceeded to the head of the plane, where, contrary to the advice and entreaties of the inmates of the house at which he stopped, abandoned his horse and attempted to reach the summit on foot, having provided himself with two of the middle staves of the head of a flour barrel, which were attached to his hands by strings around the middle. Thus equipped he proceeded on his journey. Nothing more was seen or heard of his until next morning, when his body was found partially buried in the snow, life being extinct. It appears that he had proceeded through the snow until he came within about three-fourths of a mile of the foot of plane 5, when, not knowing the distance, he turned back, intending no doubt to reach the last house he had passed. He had become completely exhausted and stopped to recruit his strength, when he was overcome by a lethargy from which he never awakened, or only in eternity. His body was taken to the summit on Monday, where every attention was bestowed to his remains. On Tuesday morning the summit people made a general turn-out and succeeded in bringing his body to this place, from whence it was conveyed to Johnstown, where it was interred on Thursday last. Mr. Welch was the partner of Mr. Samuel Kennedy, in carrying on the Johnstown Foundry. He was esteemed and respected by all. By this unlooked for event his wife is deprived of a husband and his child a tender parent, and this county one of its best and most enterprising citizens.

Comments:
Excellent website! I would like to see if possibly the Kennedy home is still standing. When my Aunt and I visited in June 2005, we searched...but ran out of time (only had 3 days!). We did locate the Augustine Glass home, which has helped me to figure more closely the area to look in. I am hoping someone local would drive there and take a look for me. It is in Munster Township. Please email me if you are interested. Thank you!!

Comments:
was born in Johnstown on April 27, 1934 but lived in Portage
until March of 1942 when my family moved to Portland, Oregon. My father took a job in Portland in the war effort soon after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

Today I can be found on the Island of Luzon in the philippines soaking up the tropical sunshine. What am I doing here? I seem to specialize in the writing of novels that do not sell. More is the pity.

Anyone in that place want to communicate with me? There is a lot to say. I've traveled the world and I have many tales to tell. Most of them are even true.:^)

I can be reached at rehazelett(at)yahoo.com if you have an interest.

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? Joseph Wanner/Warner; Ebig;Yahner et al
Comments:
I have only just started on my Cambria ancestors, Joseph and Anna Mary (Monne) Warner, and the Palena Ebig-Michael Yahner connection - my second great grandparents according to my fathers' handwritten notes. Grandpa Albert Everistus Warner was born in either St. Lawrence or St. Augustine,moved to Altoona where he was a building contractor until he died in 1951. I have letters my grandmother Margaret Love Warner received from Yahners' in Dysart,Pa in the 1960's. I've been collecting census records, found Joseph and Anna Marys' tombstones on the wonderful Cambria County web site. I've gotten stumped on the Ebig/Yahner part. They may have married in Europe, moved to Cambria County,but sparse from there on. Would like to be in touch with others from these families too. My father, Frank G. McNeal married Loretto Margaret WARNER, both born in Altoona,Blair County and 1928 graduates of Altoona High School (Panthers, I believe). My uncle Bernard Warner had a gun smith shop behind his house at 2512 Pleasant Valley Blvd., Altoona...my aunt Blanche lived there until her death in 1992. Most of my relatives are gone now,but a few cousins are in PA yet. Hope to get back there one of these days to revisit places I remember. Enjoy looking at info on your site.....Linda 16 Oct 2007

Hello class of 63, what a great bunch of people you are. Remember the fire hall teen dances. Wow what fun we had. Those were good days and a great time to be growing up in B-Town. I often let my mind roll way back to those days. Remember the old skatting rink were we walked to for shop and gym. And Taylors bakery where you could stop and for a nickle buy the biggest creampuff you ever saw? Oh Yes, good times.

Comments:
I was thrilled to find my g-grandfather and g-grandmother's marriage license listed on this website! I have been looking for many years for a document which may give me more information so I can go back another generation. I have found my g-grandmother's gravesite in Ohio. However my grandfather, Herbert, committed suicide in Johnstown sometime between 1910 and 1920 and I cannot find a trace of him. I wanted a death certificate to give me clues to the generation before him. Their marriage certificate will do that. Many thanks to the volunteers that have made this possisble. Many years of research have brought me nothing until today. Thank you!!!

We just visited the Johnstown flood museum July 15-16, 2007

The names on the following pages are the citizens of Johnstown and contiguous boroughs, as they were between the 5th of April and the 6th of May, 1889, when the canvass for the directory of that year was made. The books were printed and in Benshoff's bindery nearly completed when the flood of May 31st destroyed the building, along with thousands of others, and the entire edition was lost. The publisher, however, had the proof sheets and from them has re-published this present edition, hoping the work will be appreciated by those interested in the great calamity. A registration of the survivors of the flood was begun under the direction of Col. J. B. Scott of Pittsburgh, and continued and completed as thoroughly as possible under Gen. Hastings and Col John I. Rodgers, by whom the publisher was also engaged to assist. In this re-print the names of all who registered and those who lived in Localities not flooded are printed without any marks, while the names of those reported drowned have an asterisk (*) and those who were unaccounted for a dagger [note: plus sign] (+) prefixed.
The first numeral after the name of heads of families represents the number of inmates of that family at the time the canvass was made, while the second figure is the number reported after the flood.

Charles HORRELL has a mark in front of his name.

his marriage is listed in this county and becasue of his wife's unusual first name I can tell you HE SURVIVED. In 1900 he was in Pittsburgh!!!

You have a very nice GenWeb site. I live in Butler county and they also have a nice GenWeb site. Unfortunately for me, the two counties where my family is (mostly) from the GenWeb sites are not nearly as full as info as Cambria and Butler.

Good work to all the people who have helped make Cambria County such a good site and Thank You

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? Stjepan and Bara Makar
Comments:
This is a fantastic site! Here is what I have, and I would like to know how to proceed. My grandmother immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from present-day Croatia. However, her father was actually born in Johnstown, Pa. My understanding is this: His parents, Stjepan and Bara (Dolinar) Makar came to the U.S. It is unclear whether they married in the Old Country or here. They had a total of three children, only one of whom survived childhood (unclear if the others were born in the U.S.) Stjepan (who I believe is Stefan Makar, died 1904 on the St. Rochus Cemetery list) died in a mining accident. His wife, Bara, returned to what was then still the Austro-Hungarian Empire with her son, my grandmother's father. I've hit the census records hard and found nothing - maybe they slipped in and out between 1900 and 1910?

I wrote the church, St. Rochus, and I have a baptismal certificate. I was able to find information on the Godparents, Tomo and Antonia Papa. But nothing else on my great-great-grandparents. What is my next step?

We know that James Rafferty was born in Galitzen around 1833. He served in the Civil War in a Pittsburgh company of a New York regiment Called the Pittsburg(h) Rifles. It appears that it was a regiment from NYC that recruted up the Hudson River to Albany, across the Erie Canal and down to Pittsburgh. We believe that they were recruting men from Ireland or of Irish descent. We would like to find out anything about the Rafferty family especially anything about James' parents or siblings. Any thoughts?

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? James Masterson, Margaret Gibbony
Comments:
My 3rd great-grandfather and grandmother were James Masterson and Margaret Gibbony Masterson. They came to the Johnstown area from Cavan, Ireland at the height of the potato famine in 1847. James worked for the Pennsylvania railroad as a foreman. They had eight children; the third eldest was my 2nd great grandmother, Ellen Frances Masterson (1849 - 1905) who married John Hughes of Altoona, Blair Co., PA. The Masterson family narrowly escaped becoming victims of the Johnstown Flood and James saved the lives of several people. John and Ellen Hughes moved to Oil City, Venango Co., PA after their marriage and there they spent the remainder of their lives. I am interested in establishing whom the parents were of John Hughes and not having much luck finding the right bunch of Hugheses. Would like to share and receive more Masterson info. as well.

Hugh Hughes left Dol-y-maen Garthbeibio Montgomeryshire Wales aboard the ship Oxford and arrived Castle garden New York 21st May 1841 and settled Cambria township Cambria county which I believe is now Ebendburg. He arrived with children Elizabeth/Catherine/Mary/John/Hugh/Margaret.
Hugh and Margaret [his wife] are buried in Lloyd cemetary in 1859 and 1866 respectavely. I suspect there are many Hughes relations in Ebendburg who can connect with my research.

My husband's great grandfather, Adam Henges, from Heltersburg, Ger. was the brother of Elizabeth Henges b. 1825 in Heltersburg and came to the US as the wife of Philip Mueller. I have found so many burials of that family in the St. Bernard cemetery but I have not found a listing for Phillip or Eliz. Cindy was good enough to send me the names of their children several years ago. I am wondering about the parents. Our Adam settled in Cincinnati. His son, Jacob, moved to st. Louis about 1902. I have quite a bit of information on Henges in Germany. Eliz's father was Adam, his father was Adam to Ernst. May thanks to you all. I would like to find Elizabeth and Phillip. Anne Henges

Linda, originally from Bucks & Montgomery Counties, searching the world for surnames CRANMER, FEASTER, LIVEZEY, MEYERS/MYERS(et al), SHINN, STULTZ/STOLTZ(et al), RINGER/RINKER, TEMPLETON, TYSON, WILKINSON, WOODROFFE et al/, WIPF/WILF/WOLF et al, and Van Buskirk and Van Horn... and then some.

A mobile society for the past 300 years, and for the first 200 years, never once did they hear: "Ladies and Gentlemen - START YOUR ENGINES!"

Again, thanks. I'll be back again.

I just found Wasil Koralchik in the 1910 census. Since Koralchik is not a common name, and he is a contemporary of my grandfather, I feel he must be a relative.

My most sincere thanks to your volunteers - because of your work, specifically Grace Teeter, I was able to track the marriage records of my Grandparents. Something none of the family had knowledge of. . . . as I continue to puzzle together my family geneology, I am very appreciative of the work you have done.

Thank you so much!!!

I noticed on the townships page http://www.rootsweb.com/~pacambri/twpmap.html that Revloc is listed in Richland Township. It should be listed in Cambria Township.

I know of a cemetery in Lower Yoder Township that is not listed. I have heard it called the "civil war cemetery". St. Stephen cemetery is the closest you have listed.

The website is nicely laid out and has alot of good info.

My research is primarily in the southern Clearfield County area. Occasionally, I find info related to the northern Cambria region.

I left a message yesterday about a woman who I believe was named Barbara Cook who gave birth to a baby on 8/20/1911. Then took the baby to Johnstown Christian Homes. I was told that the woman was taken to Polk Institution. And later a woman by the name of Laura E. Williams took the baby. I now believe that Laura E. Willims is Laura E. Stonebraker. Anyone have any information please e-mail me.

Comments:
Born in Johnstown, PA, I moved with my family to a sixty-acre farm in Winterset, Ebensburg, PA, in 1943. I was graduated from Central Cambria High School with honors in 1960 and left the area to attend Shippensburg State College (University). In December 1963 I began teaching secondary English in York County, and I retired after teaching for 39 years. Many of my relatives still live in the area, and I am proud of my roots. I have returned often to visit my family, but sadly my parents Coy and Elizabeth (Krise) Hott have both passed away as well as my sister Eleanor Kinnan from Revloc and my brother Clark "Bud" Hott of Sankertown. Remaining in Ebensburg are Fred and Gerald "Bob" Hott, and two of my sisters - Betsy Hawthorne and Gail Prave - both live in Johnstown. My sister Nancy O'Hara lives in Wyoming, and Mary Hutchison lives in Missouri. We are spread apart, but we still call Ebensburg "home."

I Don't know much about my father's family since his mother died when he was 9 and his father died after he graduated from school. I seen in the census that he and his siblings resided in Jennie Oltmans family's home?? That is all I know. I have no idea what school my father attended, Preston, what his parents dies of or even who my great grand parents are.

Stumbled onto this site by accident. I grew up in Connecticut and moved to Florida about 28 years ago. As a boy, during the fifties, I would occasionly spend summers with my Grandmother, Minnie Gockley Beach, who lived on Horner St., Johnstown. Her former husband, (my Grandfather who I never met), was Victor Beach. She passed away in Johnstown in 1963. My Aunt Janet Beach passed away many years later and is also buried there in Johnstown.

My Mother, Christine Elizabeth Beach Holland, was born in Johnstown 12-03-11. She was a 1929 graduate of Johnstown High. She graduated from nursing school a few years later as a R.N. During World War II she served in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps. in both the european and pacific theaters of war. She passed away 05-11-05, at the Masonic Home in Wallingford, Ct. She is buried beside my father George in Union Cemetary, Stratford, Ct.

Thank you for allowing me to speak of my family. I have fond memories of the time I spent in Johnston with my Grandmother. And my mother loved telling me stories about what it was like growing up in Johnstown during her youth.

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? George Soas and Susie (Suisa) Golya
Comments:
I have been trying to locate information on my mother's family and have been pretty well stymied. I knew my grandfather changed the spelling of his last name after he immigrated but I didn't know what the original spelling might was. I was going through some papers of my mother's and came upon an article about my grandparents' 50th Anniversary in 1955. The article mentioned that they both immigrated and settled in South Fork, Pa. They were married at St. Michael's Church in 1905. Googling South Fork told me that it was in Cambria County. I then went to this website and noticed there was a marriage license index. I checked the names and didn't find them. After thinking about it a bit I went back and started going through the surnames with "S" -- to my elation, I found them! Had it not been for the index I would still be looking for two names that didn't exist. I can't tell you how thankful I am to your website and especially to Grace Teeter for doing the transcriptions. I plan on sending for a copy of their marriage license which I hope will open even more doors for me. Again, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
Regards,
Suzanne Bond

Frank/Franz Legel was my great-grandfather and listed his trade as a blacksmith on the 1900 Federal Census. His son was Anton/Andy Legel, my grandfather, was known by some as "Punch" because he was a former prize fighter, and was also a former Chief of Police in Portage and/or a county detective, according my info. He married Mary E. Hodgetts Rich, a widow, my grandmother. Mary Rich Legel was the mother of Florence Rich Hazlett; Mae, wife of Arthur Given; George Rich; Anna, wife of Milton Helsel; Mark Rich; and then Stella, Thomas, Catherine, Walter, Winnifred and Elizabeth Legel.

Any info would be helpful.

Comments:
My mother was Betty Lee Cable Samuel (Samuel - adopted name), daughter of Mary Margaret Cousins/Cozzens Cable (1909-1936) and Benjamin Cable (1890 or 91) - 1945. My mother was the second oldest child and second daughter. Other children were Shirley, John (Jack), Ruth (Ruthie), Dorothy (was adopted out like my mother), and William (Bill). Mary was the daughter of William Howard Cousins/Cozzens, granddaughter of James Cousins/Cozzens, and great granddaughter of Anderson and Mary M. Cozzens, who may have raised William. Mary's mother was Katherine Louisa Dudeck/Dudek Cousins/Cozzens Wentworth, daughter of Joseph Dudeck/Dudek (originally from Poland or Germany) and maybe daughter or step-daughter of Elisa (Lizzie) Hochstetler Phillippi Dudeck. Katherine may possibly be Joseph and Elisa's granddaughter. I am still trying to do research on these families. I got much information from marriage and birth certificates. If anyone knows anything about these families, please email me. Thanks, Debbie Smith

Jacob, Jr. and his wife are recorded but most of the ones who died before the Johnstown Flood aren't, making me believe the cemetery in which they were buried may have been washed away during the catastrophe.

My thanks go to Sharon Trosan for her listings of C marriages. I was able to find the date of Carrie P. McMullen to William M. Campbell as 1907. Before finding the year I could only guess. What I'd like to know is how to get a copy of index page 102-1, Lic.vol-page 34-250. Both Wm.M. Campbell & Carrie P. Campbell(McMullen) both died in Balto., Md. a well as their children Vincent Paul, Gerard John, Eugene, Raymond, and Placide. I do have all their dates if anyone wants them.

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? The Hesseltine family
Comments:
Aunt Grace, Ruth, and Uncle Bob lived all their lives in Barnesboro and are laid to rest there along with a half dozen brothers and sisters and also their Parents. All 3 were my grandmothers (Elizabeth "Betty" Sikes) brothers and sisters. They lived for almost 100 years off of Lovell Ave, just North of the old school house.

The entire family is buried at the cemetary at the end of the street. When I was young (Born 9-17-54) My mom and I would drive the 3-4 block to visit the stones. I have no idea the name of the cemetary. My mom and dad would drive us every summer for 2-3 weeks to visit Aunt Ruth, Grace and Uncle Bob and to here the coal mineing stories all over again. The only thing I hated in that house, was that the bathroom had no running water and that it was in the basement, but we slept on the second floor.

My mom's brother and I are the 2 oldest ones left now, and I think I am feeling that.

Regards, Rev. Edward J Boyle

To Mrs Linda Bargerstock, Wilmington, N.C.:

Please, allow the advice that in Germany there is to be found an old association of the families named LUTHER. Look at Google: 'Luther-Nachkommen'. - The C. A. Starke Verlag (= publishing house) in Limburg on the Lahn river (= a tributary river of the Rhine river) published 'Das Neue Luther-Nachkommenbuch' (= The New Book of the Descendants of the reformer Martin Luther, + 1546). ISBN: 3 – 7980 – 0253 – 3. Look at http://www.starkeverlag.de (click 'Onlineshop', then insert in the field above left the words 'Luther-Nachkommenbuch'). - G.B.A.

Cambria Co., Pennsylvania, Biographical-Portrait Cylopedia
Pages 271-272
A.W. GREEN, a merchant of Chest Springs, this county, is a son of William and Eliza (Beckett) Green, and was born near Freeport, in Butler county, Pennsylvania, October 22, 1821.
Nathaniel Green, grandfather, was a native of County Antrim, Ireland, where he followed farming all his life in the parish of Ballendery. In the latter parish was born William Green, the father of the subject of this record. He was born early in the present century, and in July, 1821, with his young wife, came to America. He located for a short time in Butler county, and later at the salt works near Freeport, where he remained about three years, and then removed to Pittsburg, and there learned the trade of plasterer, which trade he followed in that city until 1850. Upon the latter date, he purchased a farm near Strongstown, Indiana county, and lived upon it until the death of his wife, in 1856, when he returned to Pittsburg, and made that city his home until his death, which occurred in 1857, at the age of about fifty-five years. In religious matters, he was in his earlier years an Episcopalian, but later cast his church affiliations with the Methodist Episcopal church. In matters of politics, he was originally a democrat, and later a staunch whig. He married Miss Eliza Beckett, an Irish lady of his native parish, and they became the parents of eleven children: A. W., subject; Helena, widow of D.C. Kurtz, now of Washington, D.C.; Mary Ann, deceased, was the wife of William Hines; James, died in infancy; Thomas Nelson, who, when last heard from, was in the army of the Southern Confederacy; Eliza, died in early girlhood; Sarah died in infancy; William H., deceased; James and Matthew, merchants of Pittsburg. A. W. Green received his educational training in the common schools of Pittsburg. He then served a five years' apprenticeship at the carpenter trade, pursuing that trade from 1837 until 1850, in Pittsburg. After finishing his trade in 1842, he took to contracting and building in that city, until 1847, being a member of the firm of Lyons & Green, a firm that did an extensive and prosperous business. In 1847 he formed a partnership with John Gettys, under the firm name of Green & Gettys, and went to the city of St. Louis, where they operated one year. The next year they came back to Pittsburg, and remained until 1850. The latter year he purchased a farm near Strongstown, Indiana county, consisting of one hundred and fifty-five acres, and lived upon it, jointly following farming and carpentering until 1857, when he removed to Chest Springs, this county, and followed his trade a short time, when, in connection with his brother William, he founded the first planing-mill of Chest Springs, and also operated a steam sawmill in connection with it, shipping the product to the Pittsburg and Philadelphia markets. This partnership continued two years, when the subject of this sketch became sole owner, and operated it alone for a time, and then sold out, together with all his possessions in Chest Springs, which included considerable real estate, and in 1867 removed to Iowa county, Iowa. There he purchased a farm of one hundred and thirty acres, and for a time followed farming and carpentering. He remained in Iowa county twenty- three years, and built, during that time, thirteen churches. In 1889 his wife died, and shortly afterward he returned to Chest Springs, where he embarked in the confectionery business, which was later enlarged to a green grocery and notion store. Politically he is a republican, and served a number of terms in Iowa as a member of the school board. Fraternally, he is a member of the Masonic order, and is a past grand representative of the Grand Lodge of Iowa I.0.0.F. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
He has been twice married.

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? Zimmerman, Rudolph & Caroline
Comments:
What a great site!!! I am trying to put together a family history for my Aunt for a birthday gift. She is the daughter of William Zimmerman son of Rudolph and Caroline Zimmerman of Johnstown. I am guessing that Caroline died between the 1910 and 1920 Census. I found Rudolph in the 1900,1910,1920 and 1930 Census. William Paul Zimmerman seems to have dropped of the edge of the world until his brief marriage to my grandmother in Ky in 1935. Before that, I last found him in the 1910 Census as Willie. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Once again, you have a great site and I will definately keep visiting it.

Comments:
Hello my name is Diane Farren and my Ancestors are Patrick H. Farren married Annie M Bortman in 1886. I found this information on Cambria County web site, which was one of the GREATEST WEB SITES I ever seen for information!!! Shame now I cannot research my Grandmother's Family which is the DOUGHERTY'S. This is what I know of them, Grandmother's name is Elizabeth M Dougherty married George D. Farren, she had one sister Mae Dougherty married name Chris Moyer There children would be Chris Moyer Jr, Eloise, and Wilbur. There was a Thomas F. Dougherty he started the "The First National Bank" of Spangler. Also there was a brother Patrick J. Dougherty and he was born March 17, 1889 and died November 15, 1979. He was laid out at Thomas F. Cloherty Funeral Home in Lilly, PA. One other brother was Bernard Dougherty, I never met him, and if I did I don't remember him only by family pictures, but I do know his wife Aunt Dolores and she was a wonderful and loving person she was a teacher and has children Mary Gale Dougherty, Jeanne Dougherty (Reese is her married name) Tommy Dougherty, and Billy Dougherty. Please if you have any information about my Grandmother Elizabeth M Dougherty would you email me at the above email address.

Oh my Father is Paul F. Farren and his Brother is Patrick J Farren and Sister Mary Dolores Farren.

Thank you,
diane

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? Dr. Joseph Campbell Wakefield from Vinco
Comments:
Very nice website- what a lot of research has gone into it! You have no idea how helpful this is to those of us who live outside the area now. I truly appreciate all your work.

I am re-writing the Wakefield Memorial, a genealogy book written over a hundred years ago. It has been in my family for a very long time. My first Wakefield ancestors came to Indiana County, before the Revoluton, but Dr. Joseph Campbell Wakefield moved to Cambria when he married a Harris and built his home in Vinco and practiced medicine there until his death in the 1920's. In fact, he helped name Vinco. He was a doctor, surgeon, dentist and all this with 2 years of medical school! Right now I am trying to find out if he participated in treating victims of the Johnstown flood, which I think was very possible. If so, he may have met Clara Barton, who worked there with her newly-formed Red Cross - who knows?

Elizabeth is in the 1930 Census, a widow, 48 years old. They lived in Blacklick Township on Twin Rocks Road. Her children Alfretta, Catherine and George were living with her. I am trying to find her maiden name and her husband's name. I guess I will have to wait until the Groom B's are done. What a wonderful resource this will be. Thanks!

Comments:
I am researching the Buksa families of Cambria County. My grandfather John Buksa (Buckso) lived with an uncle in Johnstown, PA in the early 1900's. Believed to be Uncle George and wife Ann. His Uncle George met him at New York when he arrived as a young teenager. His parents had stayed back and were planning to come to the USA at another time but he never knew if they had been able to make it here, to the USA. His name was John Buksa or Buckso. He had mined some and also played the violin in a band in Johnstown. He had a grandmother by the name of Suzanne or Suzanna Buksa. I have some information on the Buksa families of Cambria but can not tie all of the families together. Any information on these families would be treasured and much appreciated. Thanks.

I am looking for a picture of 105 Franklin Street in Johnstown, PA from between the year 1939 and 1961. There has been a parking lot then since circa 1962. There was a row of 6 buildings connected together. The buildings were on the corner of Franklin and Washington Street. The building I am looking for was located next to the post office, the fifth building in from the corner.

The Business I am looking for a picture of was called Bernie George’s Song Shop from 1932 - 1941. It was called George’s Song Shop from 1941 - 1961 at this location.

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? ---
Comments:
I am looking for descendants of members of the Prussian VON ROY family who emigrated to the United States in the 19th century. In Indianapolis/Indiana I found Hermann Julius VON ROY (1833-1901) and his family, in Virginia I discovered Friedrich (Frederick) VON ROY (1838-1922) who built the farm house 'Glen Roy' near Bedford (cf. the VA-State Route 744 that still bears the name 'Von Roy Road').

In 1805 the 18 years old Johann (John) Joachim VON ROY (who was born in Elbing/Prussia on Febr. 6, 1787) emigrated to Pennsylvania. 'JOHN ROY' was accompanied by his Mennonite friends George IRMER (32 years old), Jakob and Abraham REIMER (28 resp. 27), Klaus DICK (22) and by 5 brethren of the so-called 'Herrnhuter' community. The passengers arrived at Philadelphia/PA on Dec. 7, 1805 (cf. Ralph Beaver Strassburger, Pennsylvania German Pioneers, Vol. 3, Norristown 1934, page 181-182).

According to the 'Federal Census for the Cambria County/PA' of 1830 a certain JOHN ROY (born between 1780 and 1790) and his family (wife, 4 sons, 2 daughters) lived in the Conemaugh Township. I suppose that this JOHN ROY might be identical with my relative Johann Joachim VON ROY of Elbing I have been searching for.

May I ask whether JOHN ROY's descendants are still living in the United States? Every remark would be appreciated.

As to the old VON ROY family cf. Joachim von Roy, Beitraege zur Genealogie der westpreussischen Herren von Roy [= Contributions to the Genealogy of the Noble West Prussian von Roy Family], Bonn and Lueneburg/Germany 1998. Copies of the booklet are to be found at the Library of Congress in Washington/DC, at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City/UT, at the Mennonite Library and Archives in North Newton/KS and at the Mennonite Historical Library in Bluffton/OH.

Thank you for your wonderful homepage!

Jacob Swank and about 23 members of his family were lost in the flood of 1889.
I am trying to get some info on my grandmother. Her name was Grace Ryan Swank. She was the wife of Luke Swank. His father, Harry was one of the owners of Swank Hardwear in Johnstown. Grace's father had a wholesale grocey busniess also in Johnstown. She was born in the 1890s and died March 27, 1937.
Any help would be just great.

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? Plummers
Comments:
Impressed with your site. I am visiting relatives in Westmoreland Co in July (yes, most of them are Plummers) and I would like to travel to Cambria for some on-site research. Do you have any place in particular you recommend. Summerhill seems to be my main object of research but I have located relatives in a few others. When done I'll pass my info on to you. Is there a history of Cambria County, much like many others that were written about the turn of the 19th century available for sale? Thank you in advance, Jan Thomas

My grandfather Pavel Sidlik, who first settled in Ford City, Pennsylvania, before coming to Chicago, was married twice. His first wife was Josefa Kokosic and his second wife, Rosalia Krasnansky, was my grandmother. I am attempting to learn what I can about Josefa's family and have found very little. I was able to find a Franc Kokosic buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery in Cambria County. As Kokosic is such a rare surname, I am wondering if Josefa was related to Franc. Any help with contacting anyone with the Kokosic name would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Comments:
Slyvester Welch was the supt. of building the canal from Harrisburg to Pittsburgh. William Welch was his brother and he had a foundry in Johnstown, I tried to find it by sreching deeds, I found one but not very desctiptive. On a trip to Ebensburg he was caught in a bad snowstorm and froze to death.
I do not have much information on his live in Johnstown, etc.
But I have a portrait of him. He had another brother Ashbel Welch another engineer well known in the railroad in early days in New Jersey. They were born in Conn and worked building New York canan before comeing down to NY and PA.
William's son, also a Civil enginer came to Lock Haven to work for Phila & Erie when it was being built west up the Susquehanna River. I have read William's will in Cambria courthouse, it took 13 years to settle, by Ishbel, for his widow and small son Edwin Harris Welch, my husbands grandfther, who settled in lock Haven, PA

Who are your earliest Cambria Ancestors? Mary Elizabeth Scaife Johnson & Ivar J. Johnson
Comments:
Mary & Ivar Johnson were my paternal grandparents. My father was Lester Johnson (NGHS class of 1942). They lived at 1497 Johnson Street. My grandfather (b. 1906 d. 1974) was a miner at the Heisley mine, and my grandmother (b. 1906 d. 1965)was a seamstress at a garment factory. They were members of The christian Missionary and Alliance Church. I know they both had family in the Nanty-Glo area, but we know little about them. My grandmother had about 9 siblings,so alotof Scaifes are my relatives, but know no details.

I recently discovered that the complete 1880 Federal Census is freely available at Ancestry.com. Along with the recent additions to the 1850 census data at your site has helped me fill in some of the collateral lines.

My maternal grandmother was Mary Catherine Fresh, b. 6/23/1882 in Nicktown. The Cambria County census listings have provided a link back to Frederick who first appeared in the 1820 census as a German immigrant.
