I am researching my gggrandmother Anna Charlton and her husband John Charlton, living in central PA in late 1800s. John Charlton worked in mines in Clearfield county PA.
My ggrandfather William Kirkman, listed as 17 yrs, b. England, in 1880 census, McIntyre, Lycoming county, PA, lived with two siblings, Alice Kirkman 15 and Thomas Kirkman 13 with stepfather John Charlton. Other children living with them are Charltons: Sarah 21, Alice 19, (both born in England) and John 11 and Christopher 9 (born in PA). I am assuming that Anna Charlton is William's mother.
Anna Charlton is listed 1900 census, Cooper township, Clearfield county,PA, as b. June 1833 in England, and now a widow. Living with her is Thomas Charlton, b. 1886.
I am hoping to find any information on Anna Charlton, if she is Anna Kirkman Charlton, marriage info, etc. How they came to US. Anything that can help me go further back with Kirkmans from my ggf William, who married Jannet Brown of Scotland, lived in Peale (Grassflat) Clearfield county from 1880-1937 when he died. Jannet died in 1952 in Grassflat. They had 7 children, James, Thomas, William, Abby, Ethel, Robert and Martha.
