Does anyone know about these Alcorns in Titusville, PA. Ambrose listed below was born 1867 and died in 1938. They were of Scottish decent according to a hand written account by my aunt.

From the Bethel Church History Book,Titusville PA:

The “Old Maid Hill,” just a short distance south of the Bethel Church, got its name from the three daughters of Andrew Alcorn. Their names were Betty, Polly and Emily. Brothers of these girls were John W. and Hatten. Their mother’s maiden was Watson.
Hatten married Elvira Wright and to them were born: Dale , Ervin, Ambrose, Rose and Iva. (Note: they left out Willis).
John W. married Nancy Welch and their children were: Elliot, Adell and Mary Catherine. Elliot never married.
Adell married John Bowman. They had two children: Charles and Bernice. Bernice married a man by the name of Rae.
Mary Catherine married Rulin Elvin Vosburgh. To them were born, Grace, John, Clyde, Lillian, Warren and Harry. Grace never married.

Also another note says: Prior to 1810 there were William, Robert, James and John Alcorn.

I would appreciate any information.
Thanks. Beverly
