Appreciate the extra information from the VALE book (Leffler - 1913).I have not been where there would be copies of the books.I have read about them, but have not seen them.
The article in the York County History was taken from the church records of the Warrington Friends -- have you seen the original of the marriage records??Or a film of the original marriage records??
Also wondering if either of the books gives the date of their arrival in the United States??The name of the ship??Or if you have seen the original (or film copy of the original) of the ship's manifest --- to check out the names.
It will be great to pass on whatever information I can find to his descendant, Jay Morris, whose mother was a VALE.He is in his 80s and knows nothing about his mother's family.
Is it possible to purchase the books??Or are they 'long since' out of print?Have there been reprints?
Do you know who the person is on Ancestry.com who seemingly has done the most research --- or perhaps has obtainedthe information from the books!?
