In Response To: Re: PANGBURN in Monessen, PA Newspaper LISTS HEIRS ()
Wow! Lee! Gee! Thanks! Yes, the AA Monessen PANGBURN family is a part of my family.
My great-great-grandfather, Moses PANGBURN, born around 1800 and his wife Margaret (maiden name unknown), born around 1810, had at least nine other persons, presumably their children, living with them in Jefferson Township, Allegheny County, PA, in 1850:
Dianna, age 20
In 1860, the family was still in Jefferson Township, without Moses. James PANGBURN, my great-grandfather, age 26, was listed as the head of household, including eight other PANGBURNs:
Alexander, age 20
In 1880, James H. Pangburn lived in Elizabeth, Allegheny Co., with his wife, the former Ann PRAULL/PRAWL/PRALL, his mother-in-law Rebecca PRAULL, and seven of their children:
Moses, age 15
The June 2, 1927, Monessen Daily Independent newspaper included a brief note as follows:
"Rev. James H. PANGBURN [caps mine], aged 93 years, a former pastor of the Allen Chapel A.M.E. church of Elizabeth, one of the oldest and best known negroes [sic] of Allegheny county [sic] died Friday night, May 27, at the home of his son Wylie Pangburn, of Philadelphia. Death was due to complications of old age. Moses Pangburn of this city, is a son of the dead man. Funeral services were held Memorial Day."
My maternal grandfather was Samuel L. PANGBURN, the brother of Moses from Monessen. So, again, thank you. I hadn't realized that Nora was one of MY PANGBURNs.
