PANGBURN in Allegheny Co., PA prior to 1830?
Hi AfriGeneas Friends,
My FPOC ancestors from Pennsylvania carried the surname PANGBURN. They were located in Elizabeth and Jefferson Townships, Allegheny County, as far back as the 1830 Census, starting with Moses PANGBURN. Subsequent Census records reveal that his wife's name was Margaret, and in 1830, they had one child, Diana. Diana's siblings, by 1850 were Elijah, born around 1830; James (my great grandfather), born around 1832; Moses, born around 1834; Marcus, born around 1837; Alexander, born around 1840; Dorcas, born around 1842; John, born around 1845; and Elizabeth, born around 1849.
Through the use of the SSDI, I have found a living third cousin, once removed because she left a message at that site. It was a great thrill and we are getting to know each other a little. Unfortunately, neither of us lives in PA. I don't know when I'll be able to go there to search court records, etc. If you have any suggestions or resources to help me with my distance searching, I will appreciate any assistance you can give.
Thank you very much.
