|I am researching the GILES family who came from Maine down to Pennsylvania. Working backwards from myself, I (John Patrick Giles) was born in Pottstown, PA on 10/6/1946. My father, J. Harold Giles (m. Mary Fegely McCaslin) was born in Williamsport, PA on 12/23/1909 and died 1/26/1963 in Pottstown, PA. His father was William Samuel Giles (m. Margaret Lauretta Ramsey) born in Duboistown, PA on 6/22/1876 and died in Parkerford, PA on 2/26/1946. His father was Daniel Howard Giles (m. Phoebe Jane Bevier) born in Old Town, ME on 10/12/1841 and died in Williamsport, PA on 6/11/1913. His father, Samuel Giles II (called Deacon Samuel)(m. Mary Elizabeth Anne Kimball), was born and died in Maine (1811-1910).His father was Daniel Giles (m. Mary Roberts), and I believe Daniel's father was named Samuel.I have Vinton's "The Giles Memorial" in electronic form but can't find any connections there as yet.I am trying to work my way back to England and start working on the family from that end.Always willing to share anything I have in my file.|
I'm also researching the names McCASLIN (got a lot to share on this branch); RAMSEY; HARRIS; BEVIER (also got a lot on this branch) and BRUAW (a lot here as well).
Any information would be most appreciated, and as I stated above, any information in my Family Tree Maker file (over 3000 names and counting) is available to share.
