doing research on the emigrants from the Waasland, an area in
Flanders, Belgium, west of Antwerp, to the United States and Canada

Belgian descendant in North America looking for her/his Roots

Waasland, but I have information on tens of thousands of Belgian

of Belgian emigrants; + hundreds of passenger ships (mainly from
Antwerp); + a complete list of all places in Belgium with their
districts, province, ZIP-code,telephone area code, and not unimportant

THE 1900 CENSUS, SEARCHABLE BY HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
Many thanks to Alice Kern ,
who volunteered her time to visit the Beaver Falls Library and
look up the following information:
Obit on Renzel Earl Wolff.: he died June 9, 1983 and he had
been a resident of Beaver County since 1918. His parents were
listed as Mr. and Mrs. Esley Wolff. His first wife died in 1954.
It did not give a specific date. The funeral home was the Anderson
Funeral Home in Beaver, Pa. and it is still in existence. He was
buried at the Sylvania Hills Mausoleum in Daughtery Township.
COLEMAN IN BEAVER COUNTY
Jonathan says he was born in Virginia and to me, it looks like
John B. is listed as a boatman, not a bootman, but the writing
is questionable. Most of the communities in this area are considered
river towns, so it might fit.
MCCALLUM CEMETERY LOOKUP
I am sorry to say that after looking thru 31 cemeteries, I couldn't
find a thing. I looked in the surrounding communities, but still
I found the following info on POFF family in archives at Bearver
Falls Library. There was a newspaper clipping of the celebration
of 60 years married of Frank Poff St. and Mary(Candido) Poff.
They were married 6-28-1914 in Youngstown, Ohio. They were members
of Presentation Catholic Church, in Midland, PA. They might have
additional records. It did say they came from Italy.
There is a book entitled The Shillito Family in the library.
SHANOR/SHANER querier really hit the big time. TWO big
folders on her Revolutionary War vet.
Seven pages of archived information on this surname were sent
to the family to help fill in the blanks on the family tree.
Subject: NANNAH letter
From: Alice Kern
To: Fred@pgh.nauticom.net, firstname.lastname@example.org
I did some researching on the NANNAH family. Jesse was a river
pilot born 1815. He is the son of Reese and Sarah (BELL) NANNAH.
Jesse married Catherine Javens daughter of John and Catherine
Javens of Rochester. The Beaver County Historical Society is interested
in your letter. The NANNAHs are considered a pioneer family of
Beaver County. At the Beaver County Resource Center I was able
to copy an obit for Maggie NANNAH that lists her as the last member
of the NANNAH family. She was unmarried and died in 1952. I can
forward it to you if you want to see it. She was 95 at her death.
There is also a rather long article about Jesse. He must have
been quite the character. He and Catherine had 12 children. The
article states that Jesse would sometimes walk to Pittsburgh for
dinner and walk back the same day. It also states that the NANNAH
all had very long lives, all living into their 80s or 90s and
some over 100. The only slight mystery is what you said about
Jesse being' with 2000 other troops heading south' It doesn't
appear as though Jesse served in the Civil War. He was probably
too old. I think he was just piloting the vessel down the Ohio.
Anyway, the Beaver County Hist. Soc. would love to have the letter
and I'm sure they would take good care of it. As I am sure you
realize, Beaver County straddles the Ohio River. The history of
the area has always been shaped by the river and the people who
lived on its banks. Jesse NANNAH represents a small portion of
that history, it would be nice if that small portion could be
return and made available to the people of Beaver County.
Thanks to Nancy Y. Lindemann of The Beaver County
Genealogical Society for the following information from The Beaver
County Research Center:
Burry's Church R.D. #1 Rochester, Pa.
15074 Church started in 1835 St. Fexix 13th Street & 6th Avenue
Freedom, Pa. 15042 started in1906. It is hard to get any records
from catholic churches in this area. Crone's no longer exists.
There is a Crone's Cemetery. We have a list of about 25 names
of people buried there. It is very small. Crone's was also known
as St. Peter's at some time. They merged with another Lutheran
church and became Prince of Peace Lutheran P.O. Box 60 Rochester
Road Freedom, Pa. 15042. I do not know if they have any of the
old records from Crone's.
As for the Shanor folders. I found the following.
A four page application for the Huguenot Society
A book of Desendents of Mathias Shanor 40 pages
About 45 other pages of material that looks like it refers to
Mathias Shanor or his family.
That is a total of about 89 pages. The cost of coping would
be $17.80. There would also be a $5.00 charge for the time plus
a $3.00 fee for postage. So the very minium would be $25.80. Write
the society at our regular address and enclose the money.
