I am hoping that someone can help me. I am trying to find some information regarding a John Scofield (Schofield) whose address was Clark PO, Mercer Co., Pennsylvania. I have a letter to him written in 1855. I believe John was probably born about 1795. He was from England and probably born in or near Haslingden, Lancashire.
I have found a record for a Mrs. Jane Scholfield of Haslingden, Lancashire who died Jan 20, 1848 age 53 yrs d/o F&E Maxwell, England. She is listed on the Pennsylvania Genealogies #1 CD #163.
John is the brother of Alice Schofield who married John Spencer and went to Ontario, Canada. I believe they are the only two children of John Schofield Sr.....I have not yet found the name of his wife.
If you can give me any information regarding the Scofield's of Mercer County, PA I would very much appreciate it.
