My Great Grandmother was Catherine MINTZER and she was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.She was married to John FOULKS.They lived in Burlington County, New Jersey after they were married.Her parents were David MINTZER and Margaret VANDERSLICE who lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In the 1850 Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania Federal Census it lists in Kensington:
David MINTZER 31 M Matilda"27 F Mary"7 F John"4 M Matilda"2 F John VANDERSLICE49 M
I am guessing that John VANDERSLICE is Margaret VANDERSLICE's Father.
I take it from this Census that:
John VANDERSLICE was born in 1801 PA [If this is Margaret's father then he would be my Great Great Great Grandfather]
Margaret VANDERSLICE MINTZER (listed as Matilda??) was born in 1823 PA [My Great Great Grandmother]
David MINTZER was born in 1819.
In the 1860 Federal Census for Philadelphia County, PA:
David MINTZER 41 M (My Great Great Grandfather) Matilda"36 F Mary"18 F John"14 M Matilda"11 F Catherine "6 F (My Great Grandmother)
Does any of this family look familiar to someone out there?
