My HOLLAND family came to America from England in 1866. I found them listed on the 1870 census of PA living at Post Office: Kylertown. In 1876 they moved on to the coal fields of Fayette County, West Virginia. While living in Pennsylvania, four children were born to the family. I have no proof of their births other than month & year listed on the 1900 census. Knowing that birth registrations weren't required at that time, I wondered if anyone could suggest what churches may have been in or near Kylertown during 1866 - 1876 that might have christening records available to public search. I did a search for churches there and found quite a few, but I don't know which ones have a history dating back to the afore mentioned time period.

Any suggestions you might have will be greatly appreciated. God Bless!
