Dorman family in Mifflin County, PA
Posted by: Sharon Brandt (ID *****4516) Date: May 12, 2009 at 09:15:26

I'm wondering if anyone has any information on ancestors of Robert and Margaret Bell Dorman. Robert died in 1873 and Margaret in 1876. The family homestead was in Decatur Township so I suspect they're buried in that vicinity.

Here's what I have so far -
Robert's father George came over from London sometime in the mid-1700s. He and his wife Mary Glass had six children: Joshua, Jane, Nancy, Alexander, James, and Robert.
Robert and Margaret had seven children: James Bell, Cyrus, Elizabeth, Mary Glass, Catherine, Sarah Lucinda, and Thompson Burdge.
Thompson married Jane DeArment and had twelve children: Elyzare, James, Cyrus, William, Oscar Sylvester, Jessie, John, Charles, Harry Monroe, Margaret "Maggie," Edward, and Calvin Bruce.
Edward married Elizabeth Werline and had two children, Rena and Robert "Bob," both of whom left the area in the early 1950s. Rena is my grandmother.

Thompson, Jane, Edward, and Elizabeth are buried in a cemetery maintained by East Kishacoquillas Pres. Church.

I'm trying to trace my family tree back as far as I can and anything would be much appreciated!
