My great grandfather was James CRABTREE. He was born in Dec 1864 In Maryland. He later moved to Pa and married Mary Agnes YOUNKIN. His parents were also born in Maryland. I found this information in the 1900 census for Westmoreland PA .

I am trying to find out my gr-gr grandparents names and etc. There was a Thomas CRABTREE in the 1880 census of Maryland Allegany District 2 with a son James age 15. My grandfather talk about a grandma Twigg (of course my living relatives aren't sure of names & etc). I was wondering if Thomas and HAnnah TWIGG CRABTREE might be his parents. If you have family history that fits this information please e-mail. Thank-you in advance.

Hi. I'm searching for DORSEYs of Irish descent at least one of whom I think came to Cumberland as a RR engineer for the B & O. His name was Thomas (b. 1861 in Parkersburg, WV). He married a Catherine CRUISE, the daughter of Thomas CRUISE of Tunnelton WV and the sister of William of Grafton WV. Not sure if Thomas and Catherine had any children but would love to talk to any descendents. I'm also interested in locating any of the other numerous DORSEYs formerly of Parkersburg, at least some of whom worked for the RR. I'm from a branch of the DORSEY family who originally settled in Cecil Co. Md. Some later went to Phila.

I would like to exchange information with an IRONS reseacher. My gggrandfather was Patrick IRONS. His father was Thomas born abt 1765. He changed the name of Mt Clear, Mt Clair to Irons Mt. I can not find any record of his purchase of the Mt. The first I can find him in Allegany Co is the 1800 census. He sold the Mt to his son Thomas Jr who was in Harrison Co, Ohio at that time. Thomas Jr later sold the Mt to his younger brother Patrick. Patrick's mother was a daughter of Lewis DAVIDSON Sr, from the information I have found. I can't find any marriage records. I would like the 1783 tax list. Maybe that may help. Thank You.
