BROWN, DECKER, FLYNN, MALONEY posted by Robert Garrigus on Saturday, April 1, 2000

I am looking to meet descendents and/or researchers who are looking into the Maloney, Decker, Brown, or Flynn families of Johnsonburg, Elk County, PA.

Here's hoping for a connection!

Looking for Thomas Waters Dent (1787-1857) family. Thomas came to Pennsylvania in the early 1800's and married Elizabeth Overturf (Oberdorf). They had 11 children who married in the Elk/Cameron County area. Many of the spouses' surnames are listed above. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I especially seek information on Andrew Dent's wife Julia Lorshbaugh (b.9/24/1817-d. 1876) whos father is Amos Lorshbaugh. Thanks, Amy Dent

BROWNLEE, BRUMLEY, DOLL, GRENNAN, GRINNEN, MURRAY posted by Linda Grennan on Thursday, April 6, 2000

Looking for any infomation on the above surnames. Understand some of the Grinnen relatives still live in the Brockway area. Have very little information on this line. Do know that the spelling of the Grinnen name was changed in the early 1900's. Our line now spells it Grennan. Understand my husbands gr grandfather was Harry Grinnen who married Jessie Brownlee/Bromley
