Patricia, I'd love to learn more of Raymond's parents' families!
From the 1850 census of Owego, Tioga, NY, these names are listed:Raymond, Lois, and Lucius (b. about 1832), Lyman, Mary (c. 1827) Raymond (c. 1829) Sarah (b. 1824) and a Hannah Mahling or Maloni or something hard to read, age 15, who may or may not be related.In my great grandma's book, Louie B, Frank S. and Hattie M all signed Erie, PA (probably where they lived). Maybe these 3 are children of Lucius Adams?Just a guess, but that might explain the Pennsylvania connection. Anyone out there know?
More details on my family. Gurdon MANNING b. 30 Dec 1825 of Berkshire, NY m. Sarah M Adams on 23 oct 1851, d 8 july 1893 in Puyallup, WA. Sarah b. 29 oct 1824 in nY d 20 July, 1889 Tacoma, WA
Children were: Lucius Raymond MANNING b. 15 Jly 1856, Owego, NY, d. 1924 Tacoma, WA; Charles Edward MANNING, b. 6 Mar 1859, Owego, and Jennie S. MANNING, b. 12 Sept 1861 in Waverly, NY, married James P NEVINS 1883, died 15 July, 1952 in Puyallup, WA.And yes, we all live in Washington! Mary
