In Reply to: Looking for Info for the Parents and grandparents of John Randolph Morgan B 1909 by Rosemary Morgan of 1584

I'm not sure how many of the census records you've checked but you can find many of the people you are looking for in the Greene County, PA census going back to 1850.

John Morgan he seems to have been the son of Thomas born ca1803 (based on the 1850 and 1860 censuses).

Martha Isabella 9 appears with James Stephenson 46 and Hannah 33 in the 1850 census.

William Davis seems to be the son of John Davis born April 1834. I can't be sure of whom his mother was because in each census he has a different wife. John may be related to an Alexander born ca1797 and a Christopher Davis born ca 1770 who lived nearby.

For Anna McNeely I wasn't so lucky. The best I could find was the 1880 census which shows an Anna P. McNeely 12 as the granddaughter of Mariah McNeely 58.

Some of these records you can look at for free at labs.familysearch.org and Ancestry.com. For those you cannot see for free I suggest checking with your local libraries to see if they have Ancestry or Heritage Quest.

I suggest getting at least William Davis and Anna McNeely Davis' death certificates which you can get from the PA Div. of Vital Records. The certificates should have their parents. Also try to get their obituaries which may also have siblings. Check with the Cornerstone Genealogical Society in Waynesburg to see if they can help you with these families. As common as these names are they probably go way back in Greene County history.
