Looking for information on John Alcorn born Ireland married Mary Hawkins born in Scranton, PA or New York. Had a daughter Ella/Ellie? Alcorn, my great grandmother born June 16, 1862 Danville, PA, died May 4, 1926 in Decatur, GA. Death certificate has her name as Mrs Edwin Stead buried at East Lake Cemetery, GA born in Scranton, PA. Cannot find an Edwin Stead or her grave or record of her burial. She was married to my great grandfather William John Hassenplug b 1860 in Danville, PA. They are in 1900 Fed census in Philadelphia. I only find 1 census 1880 fed census Danville, PA for John Alcorn Ireland and Mary Alcorn b. New York. The children listed match names in Ella Alcorn Stead's obituary- 1 brother John Alcorn and 4 sisters-Annie, Margaret. Ella not listed probably already gone age 18. Any information is greatly appreciated re: Ella Alcorn Hassenplug Stead or her parents, family.
