    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! By now I’m sure everyone has heard the sad news Rootsweb Mailing Lists will be disabled March 2, 2020. All lists will be archived for future researchers. Today I wanted to extend an Invitation to join our nearly 800 members strong Facebook group Pennsylvania Dutch Life. Debra Orner and I decided to welcome all of the list users to come over and join us! We discuss a little bit of everything. PA Dutch culture and heritage, area history, announcements of local events, and genealogical topics. Below is the link. https://www.facebook.com/groups/107084541429/?epa=SEARCH_BOX All we ask is your Facebook profile have a face picture. Hope to see you soon! Rick B PADL Group Owner and Admin

    1. ([PATIOGA])KINNER Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Lizzie KINNER which was taken at the Standen Studio in Westfield, PA. Lizzie is identified as the Maternal Grandmother of Robert F. RAWLS. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with Lizzie appearing to be in her 50's at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Lizzie and her family: Robert F. RAWLS Mother was Eva Lizzie KINNER who was b. 17 May 1892 in Gaines Township, Tioga Co., PA the daughter of William or Walter L. KINNER (b. 1872 in Bath, NY-1895) and Alice "Elli" May FRANCIS (b. 1872 - 1874 in Davis, PA-1963). The couple had three children including Francis Walter; Eva Lizzie; and Florence KINNER, all born between 1890 and 1895. After their father died their Mother remarried and three more children were born including, Gertrude; Thelma E.; and Earl J. "Bud" FOSTER all born between 1905 and 1912. Eva married Robert Seally RAWLS (1874-1974) and they had one son, Robert F. "Bob" RAWLS (1912-2000). Eva Lizzie died 8 Apr 1993 in Ferndale, WA. So based on this the photograph would be of Alice "Elli" May FRANCIS. Robert F. RAWLS was b. 27 Dec 1912 in Whatcom Co., WA and was married twice, once to Nelda WINGERSON (1917-1989) and also to Margaret F. PENDLETON (1912-2005) with whom he had a son, Robert Terry RAWLS (1938-2011). Robert F. RAWLS died 10 Jan 2000 in Bellingham, WA. Alice May "Allie" FRANCIS was the daughter of George FRANCIS (1840-1903) and Nancy C. LARRISON (1841-1920). Alice May was one of 7 children born to this couple including, Sarah Eloise; Fanny Juliet; Alice May "Allie"; Rose; Emma; William; and Maude FRANCIS all born between 1865 and 1880. I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please call me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. ([PATIOGA])Surname Shout Out
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Just letting you know that the lists are back up and running again so to "celebrate" our return I'm initiating a first ever Surname Shout Out. A Surname Shout Out works like a Roll Call where we all post an ancestor we're totally stumped on. Please be sure to add vital statistics like date of birth, death, marriage, etc. Happy Hunting!

    1. [PATIOGA] VASTBINDER - SYLVIA - WHITE Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" three old photographs belonging to the VASTBINDER Family. The first is a photograph of Earl VASTBINDER'S wife and sons (Frank and Glen) taken in Manistique, MI and mailed to his Aunt - Mrs. Horace VASTBINDER in Lindley, NY. The photograph is date stamped 26 Sept 1910. His son Frank is identified as 2 years and 4 months old and Glen is just 8 months old at the time the photograph was taken. Earl's wife (unnamed) appears to be in her 20's at the time. The second photograph is identified only as Grandpa and Grandma VASTBINDER. There is no studio or location indicated though it was likely taken in the early 1900's with the couple appearing to be in their 60's at the time. The third photograph is one of Ruth SYLVIA, Wilbur VASTBINDER, and Ernest VASTBINDER. This photograph also has not studio or location indicated and was also likely taken in the early 1900's. The three children all appear to be 1-4 years old at the time it was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding this VASTBINDER Family: Earl James VASTBINDER was b. 19 Jul 1875 in New York to parents James M. or N. VASTBINDER (1840-1924 - son of Philip J. VASTBINDER and Phoebe MILLER) and either Samantha TIMMERMAN (1841-1890) or Ellen ADKINS (1839-1911). Earl was one of five children including Ella; Mary Ette; Francis or Frank: James; and Earl James VASTBINDER all born between 1862 and 1875. Ellen had been married previously and had three additional children including, Charles Wycliff ADKINS (1865-1931); Henry Corwin ADKINS; and Harry B. ADKINS so I'm not sure if she was his Mother or maybe step-mother. Some records also note another half-sibling born after Earl, Grace M. LUNDGREN (1880-1962) which would suggest that his Mother may have married again? Earl died 22 Nov 1912 in Manistique, MI and is buried in the Lakeview Cemetery in Manistique, MI. Horace VASTBINDER was b. Jan 1837 in Elkland, PA to parents Philip J. VASTBINDER (b. 1804 in Sussex Co. NJ-1883) and Phoebe MILLER (b. abt 1815 in Lindley, NY-d.1892). Horace married Ethelaide HARRISON (b. abt 1840-d. 1917) and together they had 5 children including, Grace M.; Nelson Horace; Addie or Ada E.; Charles M.; and Archie C. VASTBINDER, all born between 1868 and 1883. Horace died 2 Feb 1914 in Lindley, NY and is buried there as well. Ruth E. SYLVIA was b. 1910 in Tioga, PA to parents Charles Samuel or Bishop SYLVIA (1882-1970) and Goldie or Golda E. or O. WHITE (1882-1943). Ruth had a brother, Howard Samuel SYLVIA (1913-1992). Ruth died sometime after 1940 in Dayton, OH. Wilbur VASTBINDER was b. 10 Nov 1909 and died 3 May 1925 and is buried in the Woodhill Cemetery in Franklin Township, Warren Co., OH. Ernest Clayton VASTBINDER was b. 20 Mar 1908 in Steuben, NY to parents Archie Clayton VASTBINDER (1883-1955) and Grace L. WHITE (1887-1960). Ernest was one of 5 children born to this couple including, Ernest Clayton; Wilbur H.; Etha or Etta Louise; Walter E.; and Carl L. VASTBINDER, all born between 1908 and 1926. His father may have been married previously and had three additional children including, John Wallace; Charles Reid; and Clifford Horace VASTBINDER all born between 1890 and 1899. Ernest married Lucy Mae SMITH (1910-2002) and together they had 4 children including two sons, James "Jim" E. VASTBINDER (b. 1939) and John Archie VASTBINDER (1939-2003). Ernest died 16 Jul 1989 in Dayton, OH and is buried in the Dayton Memorial Park Cemetery in Dayton, OH. Census records provide the following additional details: 1910 census of Manistique, MI: Earl J. VASTBINDER, age 34, married 6 years, born NY, parents born PA/NY, a Lumber Importer Mary E. VASTBINDER, wife, age 32, married 6 years, 3 children/2 living, born NY, parents born SWITZERLAND/NY Frank H. VASTBINDER, son, age 1 year + 4 months, born MI Glenn L. VASTBINDER, son, age 3 months, born MI I am hoping to locate someone from this VASTBINDER Family so that the photographs can be returned to their rightful place, with family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    2. David Stroebel via
    3. Hello, I'm trying to locate the church films for St. James Episcopal Church on the LDS web sight in Mansfield, PA but the LDS library catalog could not find a Mansfield, PA (or a Blossburg, PA where my relative was married). Anyone know what town in Tioga County I should search on to find and order this film? Thanks, David

    2. David Stroebel via
    3. Hello, My great-uncle, Otto Stroebele said on his 1920 US Census that he naturalized in 1870. That would place him in Blossburg, Tioga County, PA. Could someone please tell me where in Tioga County I should begin my search? I don't know much about PA genealogy. Thank you all, Dave

    1. [PATIOGA] Samuel FULLER
    2. dianna charles via
    3. HI Everyone I’m hoping someone can give me any information on Samuel FULLER I found him on the 1820 Census in LAWRENCE Tioga PA and I’m hoping to find as much information on him as I can. I have a Henry FULLER whose parents I cannot find who was living in Armstrong Co. PA from c 1850. His first son’s name was Samuel Franklin FULLER b May 30 1847 Co. Armstrong. It’s a long shot but I will go with it and see what turns up on Samuel FULLER from Tioga from whatever records can be searched. Hope someone can offer some advice. Kind regards Dianna from Sydney Australia.

    1. [PATIOGA] Otto Stroebele from Blossburg, PA
    2. David Stroebel
    3. Hello, I am trying to determine why my ancestor, Otto Stroebele, immigrated from southern Baden-Wurttemberg to Blossburg, PA in June 1866. Castle Garden shows he was a "Joiner" (skilled carpenter). The "why" may lead me to additional Stroebel ancestors that lived in Tioga County. -Immigration records show Otto immigrated in June 1866. -A 1943 obituary shows his first-born, Isabelle Stroebele, was born in Blossburg in 1872. -His second-born, Armentia Amanda Stroebele, was born in "NY" (no specific city) in 1873. -His third-born, Elizabeth was also born in "NY" (no specific city) in 1873. The earliest city directory anywhere for Otto Stroebele was in 1878 in Hoboken, NJ where more of his children were born. He then moved to Jersey City where he lived very close to his brother, John Stroebele. To recap: Did either work as a carpenter, a relative or a neighbor attract Otto past the much busier areas of New York City, Hoboken, Newark, etc for the quietness of Blossburg? Otto's wife, Sophie, was not Catholic and swore never to step inside a Catholic Church ever. Is it possible that Otto and Sophie's marriage record is in one of the non-Catholic churches in Blossburg AND it does not appear on the Tice website search? Thank you very much, David Stroebel

    1. [PATIOGA] BATES - SHAW Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as that of Ella L. BATES born 22 Oct 1883, the second child of Julius M. & Jennie S. BATES of East Titusville, PA. The photograph is dated 10 Mar 1887. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Ella and her family: Ella Louise BATES was b. 22 Oct 1884 in Titusville, PA and married Budd A. CLARK (1865-1946) and together they had 2 children. Ella died in Sayre, PA in 1951. Julius M. BATES was b. in 1839 in Oil Creek, PA to parents Salmond S. BATES (1802-1880) and Rebecca B. ? (b. 1807).

BATES, wife, age 31, Keeping House, born PA, parents born MA/NY Henry BATES, son, age 8 months, at home, born PA Rebecca BATES, mother, age 73, Boarding, born ME, parents born ME And living directly next door - Homer and Julina BATES and daughter Mary BATES 1900 census of Mansfield Boro, PA: Ella SHAW, age 48, born Jun 1851, born PA, parents born MA/NY, a Farmer Orren SHAW, brother, age 58, born Jan 1842, born PA, parents born MA/NY, a Farmer Ella L.

    1. [PATIOGA] Samuel FULLER of Tioga
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Everyone I'm trying to find information on Samuel FULLER who was on the 1820 Census in Tioga County, he does not appear on any other census though that i could see I don't have all the information from the 1820 Census for Samuel though (not that there is much I know). I thought he may possibly be our Henry's father, deceased perhaps by the 1830 Census as Henry's first son's name is Samuel, it's the closest I've come yet to finding a Dad for Henry. If anyone knows where to find any information on Samuel (and wife perhaps) that connects to Henry that would be fantastic. Kindest Regards Dianna in Sydney

    2. Dianna wrote, "I'm trying to find information on Samuel FULLER who was on the 1820 Census in Tioga County, he does not appear on any other census" and continued, "I thought he may possibly be our Henry's father, deceased perhaps by the 1830 Census as Henry's first son's name is Samuel, it's the closest I've come yet to finding a Dad for Henry. If anyone knows where to find any information on Samuel (and wife perhaps) that connects to Henry" First, why do you think "Henry's first son's name is Samuel"? If you took this from some tree, and the tree does not give evidence for this, do not think that it is proved. Possibly that tree owner made the same guess that you are making. The way to find out is from Tioga County Records, if that is where Henry died. Look at the estate records for the Henry you think might be your Samuel's father. Do they in fact give information about who Henry's children were? Look in both the County Court of Common Pleas records and in the County Orphans Court records. Orphans Court handled land-inheritance matters, and estates involving minor children. Look in Tioga County land records. Possibly there are deeds where a Samuel Fuller and wife sell his share of land of his father. Even if some Samuel and wife sell land of a Henry, that does not mean this Samuel is **your** Samuel (you do not say why you are focused on a Samuel Fuller in Tioga County). Sometimes the deed will give a grantor's residence elsewhere, that can help you tie the Deed to your specific person of interest. Look at the Tioga County tax assessment lists, which are arranged by Borough and Township. When does a Samuel first appear in X place, and when is the last listing for him? Is a reason given there for the end of his listing? Sometimes the assessor continued listings for "XY's heirs" for a few years until an estate was finalized; sometimes the assessor lists "AY widow of Samuel." Sometimes there is a note, "moved away." Look in the assessments for where Henry lived. If there is a Samuel listed in the one place at the same time as there is another Samuel elsewhere, this could indicate that there were two different Samuels. If you can not go to the County Courthouse, you can hire a researcher to do this research for you. Good hunting, Judy
