Looking for information on my Ferry line of Pennsylvania. What I have is this bit from my grandmother's notes:
"Louis Ferry married a Lowery - a convert. As there was no community church a traveling priest said mass in their home. Later when a street was built past their home it was called Church Street and that may have been the reason. Louis Ferry's father's home was a farm located near Palmyra, PA." - Florence Ferrie (Black)
1. Unknown Ferry (b. ~1790-1800)lived near Palmyra, PA 2. Louis Ferry (b. ~1810-1825)-m. Unknown Lowery 3. John Louis Ferry (b. ~1835-1855) d. 1878 in Cornwall, PA - m. Sarah Ann Foster (1851-1938) 4. Louis Ferrie 4. Charles Aloysius Ferrie (1874-1941) m. Rachel Conahan (1880-1939) 5. Florence Ferrie (1900-1985) 5. Ernest Ferrie (b./d. 1903) 5. Frank Foster Ferrie b. 1910 5. Sarah Ferrie b. 1915 5. Annette Ferrie b. 1912 5. Lois Ferrie (1918-1993)
Do any of these names look familiar? I would like to know when John Louis Ferry was born and where, when and where the elder Louis Ferry was born, and the names of his parents. I've only just started on this side of my family, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
