If you need anything from me, send me a private message. I don’t do as much on wikitree anymore since I'm using another website mostly, but I'm still here.

My area of focus is Western Pennsylvania genealogy. I'd guess that the vast majority of the Western PA profiles on wikitree created between 2017 and 2022 were created by myself, and if you have any questions on any of those profiles, or others, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I appreciate the work you are doing to add to the wiki tree. I volunteer on findagrave and understand the time and effort that goes into getting the information right and adding what we find for the greater good. I am related to Gustav Lorch, via my father Victor Fiscus, his mother Alma Lorch Fiscus, her father Albert T. Lorch, his father was Gustav Lorch. I would really like to take over as profile manger for Gustav. I am lucky that my paternal grandparents did a lot of work back when you had to travel a lot/write a lot of letters, to get everything. I have been blessed with the bounty of all their work and I have been adding more to it. Thank you for all you do!

Heidi, sounds good I can add you. Do a trusted list request on the profile and then I can add you as profile manager.

I show you are researching Wilkins and are a Nagel. My grandmother, Shirley Wilkins, married my grandfather, Lyle Nagel Albertus, son of Nagel. I'm interested to see if we're family.
I’m not aware of being related to him, but it is possible. I came across the Wilkins profiles while doing an area study, not because of a known relation.

A Nagel, hope all is well with you. if you have no objections, I will be adding more sources to your profiles for McCaskey-151 and Waters-9256. I will not remove anything you currently have on the profiles. Thank-you

Yes please add anything you would like. Thanks.

My Name is Sandra. I reached out to "Anonymous Nagel" but wanted to let this group know I too have a fairly extensive tree and we cousins believe we have linked several brothers born about 1800's to 1 Daniel Hogan and Catherine Thornton. If you search your DNA and come up with MANY of the name Thornton, it's not conclusive, but we may all be tied together.

My 2nd Gr. Grandpa was 1839 Dennis Hogan who married Bridget Waldron in East Riding, Yorkshire, England. They emigrated to a small town just south of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton called Ashley, PA. Bridget died before the 1880 census and Dennis I believe was sick and may have passed directly after, abt 1880-1883. It's possible they had family in Philladelphia as that is where he possibly died if I have the correct death certificate.

We believe the children of Daniel Hogan and Catherine Thornton were: 1-> 1801 Augustine Hogan Wife Bridget Waldron lived in Dewsbury, East Riding, Yorkshire England. (Mine) records say they were born in Mayo. Son Patrick went to Australia Son Dennis went to the US (Mine) 2->1805 Denis Hogan wife Unknown (Brophy, Harrington, Tenney so far as related surnames-West Side of PA.). 3->1810 John Hogan wife Honora Quinlan (surnames Lonergan, Duggan so far-Chicago, Ill area) 4->1812 Thomas Hogan wife Margaret Walsh (surnames Lalor so far-near Syracuse, New York and Canada.)

I have a Christopher Graham, born in Ireland about 1804, married Mary Early, died 15 Sep 1872 in Ohio. Buried in Irish Ridge Cemetery, Guernsey Co, Ohio. Father of Rose Ann Graham Mathews, wife of Hugh B. Mathews. Could this be your Christopher Graham?

I don’t have any info on him other than what is in the profile. He was on the periphery of my research, but I’ll keep looking and see if I find more info.

The western PA families I most focus on are Ireland surname (Allegheny County) and McCool (all over PA). I also work on all Sollenberger lines, but those are mostly southeast PA. I'm heavily involved in Y-DNA test management and one-name studies on all three surnames.

Hi, I saw you have some information on the Miller Walker's who immigrated from Ireland. I entered a Robert Walker from Letterkenny, County Tyrone, Ireland who married a Jane (Miller) and had a daughter Mary Ann Walker who was born around 24 AUG 1781. They immigrated into Philadelphia on 22 AUG 1786 according to a family genealogy book in my possession called "Climbing the Smith Family Tree" by Ann Smith Melbourne. They settled in what was then Hamilton township, Cumberland County, PA which is now known as St. Thomas, Franklin County, PA. Does this fit with your Robert, Jane and son James? I went ahead and made a profile for Jane Miller (Miller-83660) because I have no certain date on her birth. Looking forward to your reply.

I’m not sure if they are the same person, but they could be. Let’s see if we can confirm with another source. I’m going to check some Franklin, PA sources.

Thanks for what you are doing by adding people from the histories. I am descended from both east and west Pennsylvanians (Luzerne and Crawford County). You helped me figure out that my dead end John Ingham was actually Humphrey John Ingham! Yeah!

Happened upon your name today as I was working on one of my ancestor's profiles. It seems that Western Pennsylvania is more or less the same as the Fort Pitt region from the time of the French Indian Wars. It was the largest settlement in a huge circular area around today's Pittsburgh, where folks went to trade and get supplies, which included Western Pennsylvania, nearby Ohio, nearby West Virginia, and nearby Maryland. I had a lot of ancestors in that area, so have noted fluidity of movement of families in the Fort Pitt region, among nearby areas in those states too, from generation to generation. Sometimes they are found in PA in one of the counties surrounding Pittsburgh, then found across the river in OH, back to PA, to WV panhandle, and the arm of MD directly under PA, which is where one one of my ancestors who married someone across the river in OH is from, but the family also lived in more than one of the counties surrounding Fort Pitt. I finally figured out to search for family names in all those states, instead of only PA. I like the idea of a Western PA place study, but I also like the idea of a Fort Pitt place study that would be Western PA and spill over into the nearby areas of WV, OH, MD. However it would be difficult to categorize and it would be frontier settlements pre and post revolution before and after statehood.

Found two useful Western PA websites today while searching for source material. There is an excellent website for Hopewell Township - <> and an extensive one about the History of Beaver County Pennsylvania - <> which I have yet to explore.

I concur, I'd like to fill out all the profiles I can for the entire area, including portions of West Virginia and Ohio, where I also have many relatives from. I tried to get a real project together at one time, but I couldn't get any interest going on G2G, so I decided to go it alone for some time. I've been working through some genealogical books. I started with a very ambitious portion of my project which was to document all people in "Genealogical and Personal History of Western Pennsylvania" by Jordan, John and actually finished it, it was over 25,000 profiles in total. Now I'm working through "History of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania" by Cushing which is more focused. After that, I might spin off to "Memoirs of Allegheny County" or "History of Pittsburgh and its environs", History of Washington County, or History of Westmoreland county. If you are interested in this , the more minds the better. It is a lot of work. I try to add 20-40 profiles per day as as pace. The goal is to find 2 sources per profile, if possible, but I can't find them always.

I noticed that you are focusing on adding a specific region of Pennsylvania, Thank you! Have you considered starting a One Place Study? Every profile you add helps other reach their goals and possibly break down a few brick walls in the meantime. Have a fabulous week!


posted by Mindy Silva
I've thought about doing the one place study for Western PA, but then was was thinking I'd have to go back to the 38,000 or so profiles that I created for this area and have to add that tag. I guess I could do it for only new profiles and if I happen to edit a previously created profile.

I agree to both the merges you propose (Wagenseller and Riter), but I'm not sure of the procedure from here and afraid of messing something up. What specifically do I need to do? Thanks.
Anonymous, I just looked over your work on the Pennsylvania Daubenspecks. I really appreciate your additions. I've been pounding my own Daubenspeck brick wall in Butler for almost a decade now. I should have done what you're doing: just go for it and hope something falls into place. Thank you!

In the same area were some Peytons, Wicks, Youngs, Pettigrews, and others of interest to me. And also, god alone knows where I saw this years ago, but a "Millersville?" or something like that in Butler where many of these families might have settled circa 1820 or so. If you come across anything interesting about these families please drop me a line. Jacob Daubenspeck and Sarah Young.

Anonymous I rejected the merge between Lovinus Chase (Chase-7056) and Lovina Chase (Chase-7054) because they are twins. Lovinus is male and Lovina is female. I know it's odd that their names are so closely a like.
