I am looking for descendant's of Richard BRAITHWAITE who came to PA in or around 1849. The names are Richard b 1818, wife Ann b 1815, kids John b1839, William b1840, Rachel Calvert b 1841 and Mary b 1844. This family came from Leeds, Yorkshire, England. Although Richard was baptized in Bishop Monkton, North Yorkshire.
On the 1850 US census the surname is down as BRETHETT and the family are in Brownsville, Fayette. On the 1860 the surname has changed to BIRTHWAIT they are still in Brownsville, the family had grown by this time with the addition of 4 sons all born in PA George b 1851, Richard b 1855, Joseph b 1857and Thomas b 1860. On the 1870 census they are down as BREATHWAIT and are in Redstone, Fayette. On the 1880 census they are down as BRASTHWART and still in Redstone.

Kind regards

Keith Braithwaite, Leeds,Yorkshire,England
