LONG posted by Jules Ohrin-Greipp on Saturday, March 15, 1997

I was born Joseph Long on July 19, 1947 in Abington Memorial Hospital. It is posssible that my mother or father lived in Philadelphia. The adoption by Frank and Jeanette Greipp was finalized in Philadelphia. My uncle, Abbott Koffler, who owned Leader Furniture in Trevose, PA, was instrumental in setting up the adoption. The attorney was George Celain, and the attending physician was Bruce Ambler.
I have a full sister who is about 1 1/2 to 2 years older than I am, which would probably place her year of birth in 1945. She was raised by her maternal grandmother.
I do not know if my mother or father's name was LONG; I am not sure what the practice was at the time. I am told that my father was married and had his own family.
Any information would be appreciated.

Until 1784, what is now Montgomery County was part of Philadelphia County. I am trying to find information on two Peter "Sehler's" who were buried in the Trappe Lutheran Cemetery in Limerick, Montgomery county. One was buried in 1751 and one in 1757.

BLACKSTONE posted by Linda Brooks on Saturday, March 15, 1997

THOMAS BLACKSTONE was,according to letters that I have in my possession addressed from Philadelphia in 1840 and again in November 1860, indeed in Philadelphia. He was reported to have a net worth in 1850 of $247,000. His family had earlier settled in a community called New Philadelphia, Monroe Co, Tennessee. Since he wrote correspondence in 1840 to his family in Tennessee from Philadelphia, it is assumed that he may have returned to his native home from Tennessee and perhaps had gone into some sort of lucrative family business. It appears that he never did return to New Philadelphia, Tennessee. Could anyone help me with the occupation he was engaged in before the Civil War that could have made him wealthy (I assume a net worth of $247,000 in 1850 would indicate that) and any information on his or the BLACKSTONE family?? Thanks in advance.

KOLB posted by Deborah Kolb on Saturday, March 15, 1997

I am researching Jacob KOLB. He came from Sippersfeld, Germany and was born 01 December 1835 in Germany. He came to U.S. with his sister Elisabetha and brother Johann Phillip Kolb. His brother Johann Phillip Kolb married Margaretha Mayer in Phillidelphia on 11 September 1851 by W.(unreadable) Mann. The certificate is written in German but gives No. 277 North 5th Str, Philidelphia and an address. Any information on Jacob, Elisabetha or Johann Phillip would be appreciated. Also Elisabetha married Johan Lorenz Schonnberger on 15 April 1858. This is recorded in the church in Germany but family history states she was married in PA. Jacob settled in Gibson County, Indiana and became a citizen in 1861;he exchanged letters with Elisabetha but non are in existance now. Thank you for you help.

FINLEY, WRAY posted by Barbara (Cleveland) Cofer on Saturday, March 15, 1997

Trying to find info on my g-g grandparents, James WRAY, and Eliza FINLEY. James was born Oct 1798, in Co. Donegal, Ire., and d 4 Nov 1863, in Philadelphia. He married (date?) Eliza FINLEY, b 23 Dec 1806, in Chambersburg, and d 20 July 1884 in Kennebunkport, ME. Their dau. Elizabeth was b 22 Apr 1837 in Philadelphia, and she m Harvey Tourtellotte CLEVELAND 14 Dec 1858, also in Philadelphia. I have an abstract of James' will; he left his wife Eliza "use of the house" at 300 S. 10th St. in Phil. They apparently had 8 children (as do I!) They were: James Finley Wray; Alexander Wray; Edward Henry Wray; Sarah Jane Gosnell; Elisabeth (spelling diff. from above) Cleveland; Adeline Finley Wray; Margaret Gardener Wray; and Albert Gulver Wray (son underage in 1863 when will was made).
The Naturalization Index-Philadelphia Co. Reel #3 lists A James WRAY of Gt. Br. & Ir C.P. (? I don't know what that means) 2 June 1850 2 Nov 1854
Also: James WRAY- Gt.Br. & Ir. Q.S. (??) 5 Oct 1838
I 'm guessing (and it's ONLY a guess!) that the 1838 date is the right one. That's all the info I have on either James or Eliza, and I've been trying since 1985 to find out more. If anyone out there can help me, I would be very appreciative! Thanks.

STEIGER, WANGLER posted by Bob Doerr on Saturday, March 15, 1997

Conrad Wangler (b. Baden, 1796) and his wife, Theresia Steiger, had two children who lived into adulthood. Mary Wangler, the older, was reported born in Philadelphia 13 Feb 1835; can that be verified? They were Catholics. (The other, Joe Wangler, was born 09 Mar 1837 in Pittsburgh.) Supposedly, the family had two other children, a boy and a girl, who died young. So, was Mary Wangler born in Philadelphia? Who were the other Wangler children; when were they born; and when did they die? Did Conrad marry Theresia Steiger in Philadelphia? When? Where was she from? Theresia had some brothers who also emigrated; one was Joseph Steiger.
Thank you.
