My grandmother was Ida Baylor (B:1889, Mt. Carmel, PA); daughter of Jacob Baylor; son of James Baylor (1839-1908 (brother of Peter G. Baylor)); sons of Harman (Harmon) Isaac Baylor; son of George Baylor (1760-1868). I am seeking the connection to the Baylors from New Market, VA. How and why did they get to Northumberland/Montour Co., PA?

Do you have birth and or death year(s) for Harmon Isaac Baylor?
Thanks for the replies.  I should have clarified what I was seeking.

Harmon (or Harman) Isaac Baylor was born on 12 March 1835 and died on 22 Feb 1915. His death certificate does not indicate where her was born other than PA. It also doesn't identify his parents.  I am wondering if he is the son of the Baylors from New Market, VA.  I read an article from the early 1900s where Isaac's son Peter Gearhart Baylor claims to be descended from George Baylor of Revolutionary War fame. I am trying to confirm whether it is true.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Carmel,_Pennsylvania

During the latter part of 1854 the Philadelphia and Sunbury Railroad was completed from Shamokin to Mt. Carmel, which led to the opening and development of a number of collieries in the region. During the same year, the Locust Mountain Coal and Iron Company commenced making extensive openings and improvements upon their valuable coal lands in the vicinity of Mt. Carmel, building breakers for two collieries - the Coal Ridge and Locust Mountain collieries.[3] The township was erected in 1854, formed from part of Coal Township; by 1862 the borough was incorporated within the township.

Mount Carmel was among the first towns in the country to have its streets lit by electricity. Thomas Edison placed one of his first generators plants here in 1883. The Edison Plant in Mount Carmel was the 7th in the world.

Timeline[edit]

  • 1681 March 4 - Charles II of England grants a land charter to William Penn to repay a debt of £20,000 owed to his father, creating the Province of Pennsylvania
  • 1682 August 24 - Penn divided the Province into three counties, Philadelphia, Bucks and Chester; The last comprised all lands west and south of the Delaware and the Schuylkill; therefore the site of Mount Carmel was originally in an area claimed by Chester County
  • 1729 May 10 - Lancaster County created out of part of Chester County
  • 1749 August 22 - Land comprising Mount Carmel part of a tract purchased from the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederation
  • 1752 March 11 - Berks County created out of part of Lancaster County
  • before 1770 - Area inhabited by Native Americans (possibly LenapeIroquois, and/or Saponi)
  • 1770 - Europeans first settled in the area
  • 1772 March 21 - Northumberland County formed, area that would become Mt. Carmel located in what was then Augusta Township
