Bossinger/McGregor's Armstrong County, PA 1800s
Posted by: Susan Griffith (ID *****5216) Date: May 10, 2011 at 21:13:48
  of 1975

Looking for information about my grandfather's grandparents who lived in Blanket Hill, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania in the mid 1800 to early 1900s.
They lived in Armstrong County as adults , and maybe they were born there but I have no records earlier than the 1870 census (63 year old Christopher McGregor listed with the family in 1870 could be James' father.)

Husband: James McGregor, b. 1832;d. 1880 (he died tragically one month before his twelfth (sp?) child was born,)

Wife: Emmeline Bossinger, b. Dec 15 1936 in PA; d. 1912 (There is a great picture of Emmeline on Find-A-Grave.com!)

Both husband and wife are buried in Whitesburg Cemetery, Armstrong County, PA

Twelve Children:

1. William Henry, b. 1858; d. 1895

2. Rachel Magdaline, b. 1860; d, 1906

3. Mary Ann, b. 1861; d, 1928

4. George Bossinger, b. 1863; d. 1931

5. James Christopher, b. 1865; d. 1942

6. Emmeline, b. 1866; d. 1942

7. Charles Preston, b. 1868; d. 1916

8. Caroline (Carrie Stone, or Mrs. Fennell,) b. 1870; d.1945

9. John Gilbert (my grandfather's father!) b. 1872; d. 1958

10. Ida Amelia, b. 1875; d. 1914

11. Otis Kelly, b. 1877

12. Rosa May, b. 1880

Any information or leads on this family would be helpful and welcome.
Thanks in advance,
Susan Griffith
