    2. Tammy Lamb
    3. Hi Dave As a county co-ordinator and list server owner I don't see any suicide here. I have many people that have donated records to the Genweb page and I am always happy to add them. I have had countless people write and thank me and others for adding them and allowing these records to be accessable to those out of the areas. Many people have found ancestors and links to other family members through records. As far as duplication information, its just part of life and don't think there is any way you are going to get a control on it. What ever one person has access or found another can do the same.

They started to record these in the mid 1880's.

    3. Good morning list, I have a question. If you died in 1871, where would you most likely be buried in Franklin? My ggg-grandfather, Jacob Rudesill, belonged to the Franklin Lodge No. 3, Ancient Order of United Workmen that was organized June 1870. He was a trustee and the first member to die. His death occurred August 21, 1871. There is no mention of place of burial. History of Venango County, Pennsylvania: And Incidentally of Petroleum, edited by J. H. Newton Pg. 472 On the 21st of August 1871, this lodge lost one of its members by death, Jacob Rudesill, a charter member. This is the first time the Order has been called upon to mourn the loss of a member. The membership at this time did not exceed 450 in the United States, but today will nearly reach 100,000 members. At the time of this death there was collected one dollar per each member, which was paid his heirs. Today the Order pays her full payment, that of $2,000 upon each member. The lodge up to October 1878, has lost but four of its members, H.W. Black, who died May 31, 1874, John J. Johnson, who died May 20, 1874 and James Allison, who died March 30, 1876, all of whom received the full amount of Insurance benefits. Jill

    1. [PAVENANG] Murray men in early Venango County PA: second try: adding my name!
    2. Three Murray got warrants for tracts in Allegheny County 1793-1795, which fell into Venango County when it was erected in 1800. The following information comes from the state land grant database. 1) James Murray got a warrant for 400 acres 20 December 1793; George Siggins got the patent 12 November 1835. 2) Samuel Murray got a warrant for 400 acres 20 December 1793; Pierce Butler got the patent 2 February 1809. 3) James Murray got a warrant for 400 acres 18 March 1794; Dr John Mitcheltree got the patent 25 September 1820. 4) William Murray got a warrant for 400 acres 14 April 1795; John Field got the patent 24 January 1799. Presumably the Murray men sold their rights to these tracts to others who patented them. Happy to know for any information about these three, or possibly four, Murray men.
