- BROCKWAY, KUNTZ,
posted by Kevin Thompson on Sunday, May 10,
- Seeking information on siblings and descendants of William E.
Thompson. He was born 1863 in York County, PA or Harford County,
William married Minnie O'Conner on 24 October 1890. She had a son, Clair
O'Conner, prior to marrying William Thompson. Her parents were Nelson
and Sarah O'Conner. We suspect William had 4 - 5 children. We know of a
daughter Elsie Thompson.
Elsie married Millard W. Brockway of Crown, PA in 1922 (she was 19 years
old). Millard's parents were Walker and Maggie (Dalerra) Brockway.
Parents of William E. Thompson were Sylvester and Rebecca J. (Johnson)
Thompson. They married in 1859 in Chanceford Township, York Co, PA.
Sylvester was originally from Harford County, Maryland. Sylvester and
his brother James Thompson purchased land in 1869 in Knox Township,
Jefferson Co, PA. May have been in the area prior to that. Another
brother (of Sylvester), William Thompson (married Mary Margaret Miller
in Hopewell Township in York Co, PA), was in the Jefferson County area
before James and Sylester.
Rebecca died in March 1892. Sylvester married Maggie Kuntz in September

EWING posted by Paul
Anderson on Wednesday, May 13, 1998
- I am working on a family history concentrating on the Anderson line.
My great grandfather was named Edward Elsworth Anderson and is buried
supposedly in Reynoldsville,PA (Jefferson County). At the time of his
death in 1906, he was living in Wilkinsburg,PA with his wife Mary Ewing
Anderson and their children. After he died, Mary moved the family to
Punxutawney.They had 5 children: Edward Clair Anderson (my grandfather),
Kay Anderson, Craig(died as a baby),Leroy (Dutch) Anderson and James
(Jimmy) Anderson. If anyone knows anything about my relatives,I would
greatly appreciate it. It is still unclear where my great grand
father,Edward(Edwin) Elsworth Anderson was born. His death certificate
says that he was born in Brooklyn,New York, but after several exhaustive
searches I could not find one on microfilm. I'll take any leads that I
can get. Thanks..
