Looking for anyone who may be researching the ancestors of Andrew Jackson KINGSTON (born Philadelphia 1870, died Eatonville, Wyoming Co, PA 1935) and his wife, Catherine West POTTS Kingston (born Philadelphia 1872, died Meshoppen, Wyoming Co, PA 1955).

Have found some information regarding Andrew Kingston's parents, Lucius H. Kingston (1831-1896) and Sarah Donahue Kingston (1838-1899) both born in Pennsylvania. Also some information regarding siblings of both, but then unable to locate any additional information.

Would like to compare notes with anyone who may be doing research on either family. Other names that have come up in conjunction with this research include George W. Schaeffer (Schaffer/Shaffer) and Catherine Shaffer - born circa 1799-1801 in Pennsylvania lived in Philadelphia for 1850, 1860, 1870 Census years. Sarah maiden name unknown Donahue born about 1800 in Pennsylvania.

Also connected to Catherine Thompson (1850-1887); Frances Wright (1887-1887); Luella Black (1892-93-1894 of Clifton Delaware Co, PA); William A. Shaffer (1829-1895); Mary Couslick (1860-1899); Frank K. Homan (1894-1894); John Shone (1833-1907 of Scotland then Philadelphia) and his wife, Mary Jane Shone (1827-1901). George Martin born about 1855; Thomas McDonald born about 1845; Charles Tees born 1833. Most of these individuals were found in Philadelphia census and cemetery records. Looking to establish relationship of these individual with the Potts/Kingston family.

Kingston family (and Donahue family, some Potts relatives, as well as Shones) moved from Philadelphia to Scranton area in early 1900s. The Kingstons eventually settled in Eatonville, Wyoming Co, PA about 1913. Hoping to find other researchers to compare notes.
