U.S. States: Pennsylvania: Bucks County
We are researching the family of James Melvin, whose will was probated 8 Dec 1788, leaving no wife but 8 children. The executor was his son Samuel who inherited the lands so we assume stayed in Bucks. We have no record of him. His sons Thomas, Joseph and John Melvin all emigrated to Jefferson Co., VA in the mid 1700's so we assume were not in Bucks at the time of their father's death. We have extensive genealogies on those 3 sons, but no record of James Melvin, Jr, his other son.
The daughters were Susanna married to Charles Dungworth; Jane married to a Barnes; and Mary married to a Crossley. We have no record of them.
Has anybody seen a record of these folks in Bucks? Also, are they listed in the 1790 Census?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. We have a 6000+ name file in FTM to share from.
