I would be interested in any additional information in regard to John Y. Pyle and his wife Sallie E. Bolton Pyle. (approx 1870?-1880?) They were sent to Nebraska to instruct Indians when President Grant instituted the plan of placing the Indian bureau under the care of "friends". Sallie taught school. Sallie was the daughter of Evan Bolton and Ann Brosius Bolton. Sallie was an elocutionist and literator. Authored several poems. (Would be nice to find them) They owned the Pennock Farm near the mouth of Fishing Creek in Drumore Township. John Y. Pyle is descended from Robert Pyle (1160?-1736?) Concord Meeting House.

seeking the father of Peter Stout, He signed a marriage bond on the 19 of july 1809 for his son Jacob Stout (a minor) to wed Caty Ruble. in the state of Tenn, Greene Co. the bond ties him to Jacob, but not to his own father.so I have two fathers Peter Stout and Balser Ruble and know not from where they come..Jacob and wife traveled to Highland Co along with Balser Ruble. He died in Ohio.. Jacob traveled east fm Hillsboro, ohio in 1838 and was never seen again.. believed to have been killed by Indians. its been stated by the census that his father was born in Tenn. but I can not find the person who raised him..could be Peter Stout of 1763, son of samual Stout . if I could prove that in fact he had a son by the name of Jacob..who married Caty Ruble..any assistance you may offer will be greatly appreciated Harold.

Tom McIver

e-mail address: TMcI176324@aol.com

researching: Webb Wetherald Vail

I am researching Samuel Webb (1796-1869), who was active abolitionist in Philadelphia. I have determined he is author of anonymously-published book Creation & Deluge printed in Phila. 1854 by Hector Orr. He also wrote (again anonymously) book about Pennsylvania Hall which was burned by anti-abolitionist mob in 1838. He was key member of Penn. Hall committee, and also delivered 1839 speech to National Anti-Slavery Convention in Albany. The 1854 book says nothing about the author, except that he delivered 1844 lecture at Phila. Lyceum and wrote articles for Phila. newspaper. The only mention I know of of 1854 book is in 1921 book by Mary Webb Artois (b. 1851), his granddaughter. Artois' book is poems by Webb family members, and gives some geneal. info. Webb's parents: John (1745-1808) and Rebecca Couch (b. 1760?). Webb married Mary Stokes Hinchman (1797,8?-1877). Daughter Rebecca married Francis Anthony Artois (parents of Mary W. Artois). I assume Webb is Quaker because of his praise of Wm Penn in his 1854 book, but I don't have proof. His sister Mary married I.W. Morris (or Wm P. Morris?) in 1811. After Morris died she married Haworth Wetherald in 1836. Wetherald was also active abolitionist, and son of Hicksite Quaker preacher Joseph W. who was close associate of Elias Hicks. (Wetherald and Mary Webb were disowned by Hicksite Friends for their marriage.) Can anyone confirm that Samuel Webb was also Quaker, or provide more info about him? I am also interested in Isaac Newton Vail (1840-1912), who was born in Barnesville OH and died in Pasadena CA. Is he related to Alfred and Theodore Newton Vail, cousins famous for developing telegraph and telephone? --------------------------------------------------

I have taken my search as far back as 1717, when my G(x8) Grandfather Richard Williams married Margaret Eaton, possibly in Gwynedd, PA. Before this everything is fairly vague. Other decendants of Richard and Margaret are William Williams, Sr., a noted Quaker Minister born in North Carolina; his son Isaac Williams, Sr. born in North Carolina; and Capt. Isaac Williams, Jr. beleived to have been disowned from the church because of his involvement with military operations in the War of 1812 and the Creek Indian Wars. If any of these are familiar to anyone, please let me know. --------------------------------------------------

Marilyn Bentley Dawson

e-mail address: bentleaf@txucom.net

researching: Dawson Wyatt Callihan Upton

I am interested in finding a connection between Leroy F. Dawson of Campbell and Halifax Co., Virginia to the Quaker faith. His name is mentioned in the Virginia Quaker Records book, Campbell Meeting House, along with the following other names. Leroy F. Dawson married Susanna Wyatt, dau. of Eliel and Margaret Compton Wyatt, in Halifax Co., Va. May 29, 1826. He was then listed on 1830 Campbell Co., Va. Census with wife and child. Then, in Campbell Co., Va. Meeting , Leroy F. Dawson was listed as Bondsman in the Marriage of Susan Dawson, dau. of Wm.H. Dawson, to Benjamin Upton on Nov. 8, 1825, Campbell Co., Va. Wm. H. Dawson signed for his daughter Susan to marry. Leroy F. Dawson and Benj. Upton posted Bond of $150.00. Testators were Leroy F. Dawson and Samuel Pannill, Jr. This appearance of Leroy F. Dawson, as Bondsman, makes me believe that Leroy is a Brother to Jane, and perhaps Son of Wm. H. dawson. Could I be correct in this assumption? I have researched this family for over 20 years and have never gained proof of Leroy's parentage or family. These Quaker Records from the Campbell Meeting House Records is the only possible data that could be assumed as possible proof. Also mentioned is this: on July 15, 1832 Jane Dawson dau. of Wm. Dawson, married Wm. Callihan in Campbell Co., Va. Testators were John T. Stanley and Wm. C. Rowlette. Wm. Callihan and John Stanley posted bond for $150.00 Wm. Dawson signed for his daughter Jane to marry. By 1860, Leroy, Susanna and their 5 children are living in Carroll Co., Va. and Leroy is listed as a baptist Minister. Then, in Sept. 20, 1860, upon Leroy's death his name is mentioned in the records of the Religious Herald, stating that a meeting was held at Regular Baptist Church, Meadows of Dan or Day, Patrick Co., Va. offering condolences for Brother Leroy F. Dawson, faithful Minister and citizen of the community, by J.H. Lewellen, Moderator. I would be so grateful if someone could help me with this mystery of the parentage and faith of the elusive Leroy Dawson. Thanking you, Marilyn B. Dawson --------------------------------------------------

researching: Lee, Ball

I am trying to find out if Ambrose Lee and Hannah Ball who married in Delaware County, Ohio were Quakers and if so was there a meeting near here where they might have been married. They would have been married about 1830. Ambrose was the son of Josiah Lee. His brother Uriah married Hannah's sister. William Ball, brother of Hannah married Ambrose' sister. The only clue I have that this family may have been Quakers is that Ambrose' son Richard attended Quaker meetings near his home in Champaign County, Illinois. I would like to hear from anyone that may be connected to either this Lee or Ball family.

Am searching for information on Tacey Wilkinson (c.1735-c.1810) who married William Hewitt (c.1735-1820). They may have married in VA. Traveled from VA>NC>SC>GA, where Tacey probably died. I am searching Quaker records because of a notation I found that says Tace/Tacy/Tacey was a name long favored by Quakers. I found one instance of a Tacy Wilkinson in Quaker records with her mother but this Tacy is not my Tacey Wilkinson as the former was too young, and the time period noted too late (1835) and wrong area (VA>OH). I don't know if my Tacey Wilkinson was actually Quaker or not, but based on her name it's a shot in the dark. Any clues helpful. --------------------------------------------------

William and Elinor Roberts MD.1714-1760 Posted by: Roy Buck Roberts Here is some information I have gathered on my ancestors I would appreciate your consideration and comments: #1 William and Elinor Roberts lived in Frederick Co., MD.? VA.? 1749- 1754. [ There is a Frederick Twp. Next door to Whitpane and Gwynedd Twp in Pa. ] #2 William and Elinor sold 200 a. in Baltimore, MD. 7 Apr. 1757. Then sold the remaining part of "Friendship completed", 275 a. Baltimore, MD. 9 may 1763. #3 Edward Roberts [ William's brother or son ] was granted 260 a. in the forks of the Yadkin near the Boone family. Squire Boone was a Quaker and lived nearby in Bucks Co. Pa. He was dismissed from the Quaker church for tolerating the marriage of two of his children outside the Quaker faith. He proceeded to move to the forks of the Yadkin river in NC. Probably sometime in the 1750's. #4 William Roberts and wife Elinor were deeded 444 a. on Dutchman's Creek [ Yadkin tributary ]Rowan Co.,( now Davie ) NC. By the Earl of Granville in 1762. #5 Roberts, William of 'Patapsco,' in 1750 owned 50 a,, Friendship (153:84) What is Patapsco? #6 Roberts, William Baltimore, Friendship Complete 473 01 Apr. 1756 BC5/28;BC7/183 #7 Migrated with brother Edward and families from Gwynedd Twp. or Whitpain Twp. PA. in 1761( 1751?). ( Both of these areas are just north of Philadelphia, Pa.) I have gathered these bits and pieces over some period of time and have the following comments and questions. (A) William line was [ William s/o John Jr. s/o John Sr. s/o Andrew ] They were all from the Baltimore area with Andrew coming from Wales? about 1655. That would make them living in the Baltimore area over 100 years before William and Edward took up claims in the North Carolina wilderness. ( why? ) (B) One matter that I am trying to resolve is, were they Quakers? It would explain why they were persecuted during the revolution in Rowan, NC. They were put on a list of individuals who were not in favor of the Revolutionary War. all but Edward were pardoned in 1783 and only Edward's property was seized and sold. It might also explain why they would sell almost 500 acres and move, with a large family to the wilderness of North Carolina to begin with. (C) Does anyone know anything about Gwynedd township in Pennsylvania. I know it was a Welsh district. Was it also a strong Quaker settlement? Statement #7 the date 1761 just might be an error, or can you think of any reason they would give up there homes in Baltimore, move to Pennsylvania, then back to North Carolina. Were the Quakers of that day and age like some of the modern day cults which require you to sell all you own and move to a common area? (D) I know that the family had a very long term relationship with Saint Paul's Protestant church in Baltimore. William and Elinor were married there on 11 Dec. 1735. Was it a Quaker church at sometime? Or did William and Elinor convert to Quakers at some date? (E) They had a large family, eleven children. I cannot determine when or where they were born with the exception of Edward there eldest . the LDS church lists him as 1735 Gwynedd Twp, Pa,? Since they lived in Baltimore so long where would I look for some record of there children's births? Well enough for now, again I would respect your intelligent input. Roy J.

researching: McFARLAND

My husband's grandfather, John William McFarland or McFarlin was a member of the Friends Church in Danville, Indiana. We think he lived there for a time with his parents, John Wesley and Levina Emaline (Baber) McFarlin. We visited the church about 5 years ago and the minister sent us a church in Plainfield, Indiana where he said the records would be. We could not find the records of the meetings for that church. We are having difficulty finding information on his McFarland/McFarlin ancestors and thought we might find some helpful information through the church records. They lived for several years in Orangeville Township, Orange County, Indiana, and that is the last place we have mention of my husband's great greatmother, Amanda Mauda (McNabb)McFarland and one child, James McFarland. We thought quite possibly that they had died Orange County and there might be mention of this in the church records. His great grandfather, George Washington McFarland, turned up in Sullivan County, Indiana, a few years after they sold their property in Orange County and he remarried there and later moved to Clay County, Illinois. We have reason to believe he died there even though we have not been able to find any record of any type to verify our belief. I wondered if there was anyplace which would have records of the Friends Church in those areas from about 1850 to 1890 and how we would go about getting information from them or seeing them. Thank you. Karen McFarland --------------------------------------------------

researching: Davis

I'm looking for someone who can help unravel a puzzle - that may rest on the date that Cety Terrell died. First - I'm descended from a John Davis who died 3/16/1773 while he was an elder at Camp Creek. For several years and based on a few documents I have believed that his wife was Susannah Smithson and that their 6 children were Samuel (b. around 1740 who m. Annis Lipscomb), William(b. around 1755 who married Mary Gosney), Micajah (b. in 1748, who married Mary Johnson, Anne who m. a Barnett, Mary who married a Smith, and Dickey. At the time of death, one of the Executors was his "wife Susanna." However, I have recently seen a record from camp Creek MM that says this same John Davis married Cety Terrell 3/8/1755. This would mean there were perhaps 3 wives: one who gave birth to the children born before 1755, Cety for perhaps some more, then Susannah to whom he was married when he died. Can anyone provide a solution? I'd be grateful for your help.

I'm looking for information on Joseph and Rebecca Curle. Specifically I'm trying to find out who his parents were and whether he was born here or emigrated from England/Wales. The first reference I have of his is 2 Jun 1788 in the Hopewell MM where the couple and their children were received by request. I have reason to believe he is related to James Curl(e) who moved to the Hopewell MM from Kennett MM. I also believe Joseph lived in the area of the Kennett MM around the time of the Revolution. --------------------------------------------------
