In Reply to: Re: Alcorn's in Western PA by David Halbstein of 1166

My GGGGrandmother was Jane Alcorn , B 1788 in Ireland, daughter of George and Nancy Foster Alcorn. She married Michael Alcorn b1790 in Ireland. He was the son of Joseph Alcorn of Ireland, mother unknown. I don't know yet if Michael and Jane could be cousins. A couple of years ago I came across a hand written Alcorn family tree which lists George and Nancy Foster Alcorn plus several more generations. The last generation list a David William Halbstein which I assume may be you. I have more dates for John (1804 -1878)m. Keziah Nichols (1808-1099) and for George d. 9/29/1867 @ age 67 (may have been born in 1799 or 1800, his stone in the cemetery was on the ground so i could not read it)m. Susan Kenley (1808-11/28/1844). They are all buried in the Polk Run Cemetery in Washington Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pa. this is close to Saltsburg, Pa. Martha & Margaret May also be buried there but I was only looking for Alcorns that day. The Polk Run Presbyterian Church send me a list of all the Alcorns buried in their cemetery, I was looking for Michael & Jane but there were not there. Hope this will help.
