Hi, Will. Ken Pander and I and a couple others have had a lot of chit-chat about Panders lately on the Pander Forum. Your N. Sewickley is the right area for our family (Ken and I think we're related). Can you tell me anything more? Like approximate birth dates, mates, etc.? There were a couple Pander families in the late 1700s in SW PA and we are working on the Henry Pander/Rebecca Updegraph line. They were born about about 1795 to 1805 time frame (conflicting info!) They had at least two daughters and four or five sons. We have agreed to share info but some have been too busy (working overtime etc.) to get their stuff copied and shared, so I haven't done much further research until I see theirs so I don't reinvent the wheel. My Rebecca Updegraph was born in Fayette Co. and probably married there, although much or her family moved to Washington Co. for 15 years-ish and then to Butler Co., where her youngest three sisters grew up. Henry Pander came to America, I am told, about the time they married, give or take 10 years.
Henry and Rebecca lived on Pander Hollow Road, above Lillyville, in northernmost Beaver County.
Ken Pander and I have not yet proved Rebecca is my Updegraph, but my family lore said Rebecca married a Pander, and this is the only Pander (of 2) in the area at the time married to a Rebecca, and their daughter married a Latshaw, whose daughter by his first marriage married an Updegraph. Most of Henry/Rebecca's kids died in the 1800s, but we're trying to track down daughter Rebecca who married a Leslie Vail/Vale.
Talk to you later.
