I'm looking for the parents and siblings of Samuel Charlton born in Ireland in 1784 who married Nancy Jane White in Shippinsburg, Pennsylvania 6 Oct. 1814. I do not know when he emigrated, with whom, where he disembarked, or where he lived before marrying.

They had five children:
John Charlton (b. Franklin Co.) & Keziah Bell 1815-1890 1818-1894
Nancy Jane Charlton (b. Franklin or Bedford Co.) & Gideon Warner 1819-1849 1823-___
Samuel Charlton, Jr. (b. Ayr, Bedford Co.) & Lydia (Lilly) Flora 1820-1899 1819-1901
Margaret Charlton (probably b. Ayr, Bedford Co.) & Jacob Garmoe 1824-1915 1824-1884
Elizabeth Charlton (probably b. Ayr, Bedford Co.) & Alfred Green 1826-1907 1826-1901

Samuel Charlton and his five children (Samuel Jr. with spouse) moved to Jefferson County, Iowa in 1846. Samuel died there 20 Oct. 1851 Jefferson Co. IA and is buried at the Upper Richwoods Cem. I have his photo.

I'm also looking for the parents and siblings of his wife, Nancy Jane White. I have thought Nancy Jane White might be a child of Thomas White & Elizabeth Jones, but there is no concrete proof of that.

I would like to know which White family was in the area at that time with a daughter, Nancy Jane White. I do not know her DOB, but am guessing it to be 1790-1795. I have a DOD from a family note as 8 June 1839. The family had lived south of McConnellsburg in Ayr/Air Twp. Bedford Co. in the 1820 and 1830 Census and in the town of McConnellsburg in 1840 without Nancy Jane. (This became Fulton County in 1850.)
