I have a small hymnal presented to Richard YOUNG on 1 Dec 1844 "for proficiency in Shorter Catechism" by the Sunday School of the 4th Presbyterian Church of Philadelphia. Richard was my third great grandfather. His daughter, Jeanette, married an Episcopal priest (The Rev. Henry Bell Bryan). Jeanette Young was born 4 Dec 1863 in Philadelphia. Both Jeanette and Fr.

WEIR posted by Betty Gourlay on Tuesday, February 15, 2000

My grandparents (Andrew & Janet -sometimes spelled 'Jenete' WEIR) were married in New York in 1888. The address given was Germantown PA which I think is/was part of Philadelphia. In 1893 they were back in Scotland where a set of twins was born and died within a few weeks. They returned to USA and my father was born in Frankford Philadelphia in 1901. I have obtained a copy of the 1900 census entry and learned that my grandmother had actually had six children and none survived. I have only found two born in Scotland and feel that the other four must have been born in USA sometime between 1888-when they were married- and 1893 -when they must have returned to Scotland or between 1897 - they are mentioned in the church records in Philadelphia - and 1900 - the time of the census. I have found out that my grandfather is in the Philadelphia City Directory for 1890. Address given was 4326 Dorritt. Is this in Germantown as mentioned on his marriage certificate? The address given in the 1900 census was 1192 Unity Street and that is where my father was born. They attended Seventh Presbyterian Church in Frankford while living in Unity Street but transferred to that church from All Saints Evangelistic Lutheran Church, Philadelphia. Would that church have been local to Dorritt Street? And is it still in existence? How can I find out when the other babies were born?

PENNINGTON posted by Wanda Pennington Parker on Tuesday, February 15, 2000

The following was taken from the biographical appendix of the "History of Moniteau County, Missouri pages 991-992. ISAAC PENNINGTON was of English descent and a prominent Physician in Baltimore and Philadelphia. He was a member of the Dunkard Church and during the American Revolutionary war gave up his property rather than enter the service, as it was against his religious principles. He died at an advanced age. I would like to hear from anyone knowing anything on ISAAC PENNINGTON.

MACK posted by Perry Roland on Tuesday, February 15, 2000

I'm looking for biographical information re: Edward Mack, (b Stuttgart, Ger, Aug 24 1826 - d Philadelphia Jan 7, 1882), an apparently blind composer of piano music who immigrated from Germany ca. 1831 and lived most of his life in Philadelphia, PA. During his lifetime, his music was very popular, but he seems to have been forgotten. I've tried all the usual biographical sources, so I'm hoping someone has some genealogical information to share. He attended and taught at the Philadelphia Institute for the Blind. He also lived briefly in New London, Connecticut and somewhere "south" (as his only biography says). Also, if anyone has music, sketches, letters, etc. in their attic or knows where I can find this kind of thing, I'd appreciate a pointer.

CULICH, GLEICH posted by Dorothy Cochran on Tuesday, February 15, 2000

My grandmother PAULINE GLEICH (CULICH) arrived in Philadelphia in May 21, 1891, disembarking from the Belgenland from Antwerp. She came from Germany. I have reason to believe that she had a German Immigrant Contract to work as a servant in someone's home. I have located her in 1896 but for the 5 years prior I have no knowledge of her, where she worked or for whom. I feel that she just did not get off the boat and get a job since I am sure that she didn't speak English at that time. Any help will be most appreciated.
