The A. William Underwood's of Pittsburgh,PA Family Home PageUpdated March 18, 2009
|Arthur William Underwood|
|I am researching the families of A. William and Carol (Paladino)Underwood.|
the Underwood/Carroll side of our tree has its roots in Hillsboro and Columbus, Ohio and Pittsburgh, PAThe McCaffrey/Flaherty, (maternal), side are frim Carnegie and McDonald, PA, and Columbus Ohio. The Paladino/Packard side is mostly from Pittsburgh and Connellsville PA.
Most of the information has been passed down from older members of the family. I did gather a lot of valuable informationfrom a scrapbook that my Paternal Grandmother kept of news and events from the Hillsboro Newspaper, and passed down to her daughter and then to my cousin Larry Watson of Painesville Ohio. I thank him for providing copies to me for this project. I would also like to thank my Aunt, Sister Alice McCaffrey for her hand-written tree of the McCaffrey/Flaherty lineage.
A recent trip to Hillsboro Ohio was also useful in obtaining both names and birth dates for the Underwood/Carroll's.
Thanks again to Larry and Marijane Watson for their help in finding family plots in 3 cemetarys there.
In addition, I would like to thank Bob and Rose Donnelly of Wierton WVA for providing information on many of the McCaffrey limbs of our tree. Bob is a Cousin of my mother, Ruth McCaffrey Underwood.
I am still in the process of trying to gather more information on my Mother's, (McCaffrey/Flaherty)side, along with Carol's (Paladino/Packard)side as well. We would appreciate any help from any source at all.
Bill and Carol Underwood would like to announce the birth of our first grand-child, Ava Elizabeth Dunn on Valentine's Day 02/14/2006. Ava is the daughter of Mark and Kelly, (Underwood), Dunn.
A recent phone call from Michael McCaffrey of Beaver PA was useful in filling in another branch of the McCaffrey side of the tree. We are related through our Great-Great-Grandfather, James McCaffrey. Thanks again for the information
Bill and Carol Underwood would like to announce the birth of our second grandchild, Brenna Marie Dunn, on June 30,2008. Brenna is Gaelic for "dark haired girl' and as luck would have it she does have dark brown hair, at least for now.
I would like to thank Joy Sweet of Delaware for contacting me and sending some much valued information about the Flaherty branch of our family tree. I now know who my Great Great Grandparents were and where they lived in Ireland. Thanks Joy.
During a recent trip to Italy, Carol and I and Carol's sister Diane and her husband Bernie traveled to the town of Nicastro in Calabria where Carols Paternal Grandparents Were born. We were able to obtain oficial records for birth and marriage of them and the names of their parents. Thanks to the officials there and a very helpful taxi driver who spoke English and was kind enough to translate our needs for us.
