I'm looking for information on Daniel Brown from around the Somerset, PA. area.
Daniel was married to an Eliza Ling or Mary Elizabeth Ling (not sure of her name but she was called Eliza).
They had 5 children: Lena ~ 1887 - 1943? (around 8 yrs old when mother left) Arthur ~ 1889 (around 6 yrs. old when mother left) Theresa ~ 1893 (around 2 when mother left) Elmira ~ 1891-1986 (around 4 yrs old when mother left) Albert ~ abt. 1895 (adopted when 6 months old by Lane family)
From what I am told the mother, Eliza, left after the baby Albert was born and the father, Daniel, wasn't able to care for so many little chldren on his own so he had to put them out into foster homes.The county wouldn't let him put the baby into a foster home because he was only 6 mos. old at the time so he was adopted.My great-grandmother, Elmira, was able to get in touch with her baby brother, Albert, when he was a teenager and then hadn't heard from him for another 60 years when I was able to track him down for her.She was able to see him again before they both passed away.I am now trying to search the family history back to find where we all came from. I would appreciate any help if anyone knows of this family.
