Okay.Let's see if we can get this board working again.Things have definitely slowed down.
I need help finding information on Matthew Eyster, who I believe was born in Shippensburg, Cumberland County, PA, probably around 1815 (give or take).It is believed that Matthew married Elizabeth Robinson around 1835.She was likely born in Allegheny County, PA.Matthew and Elizabeth had at least two children: Matthew B. Eyster, born about 1836 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, and Charles Widney Eyster, born 2/28/1839 also in Pittsburgh.Matthew B. married Emma Jane Graham of Allegheny City on 4/7/1864 and they had at least seven Eyster children: William, Nathan Graham, John R., Charles, Elizabeth and Etta May.The second son of senior Matthew, Charles Widney, married Henrietta Lloyd "Hattie" Armstrong in June 1864 again in Allegheny County, and had a daughter Mollie Eyster about 1877.
I would love assistance in finding out more about this family, especially the names of senior Matthew's parents.I'm trying to connect this disconnected family group to the larger Oyster/Eyster family tree.

P.S.Some of the surnames I believe included in this family group are: Oyster, Eyster, Graham, Robinson, Stroud, Davenport, Praeuner, Hackett, Albi, Woodside, Hurford, and Armstrong.
