Hi I am currently working on a Family Tree and Family history for myself and my husband. My maiden name is Liston and I am originally from Fayette County in Pennsylvania. My husband's name is Miller and he also is from Fayette County in PA.
On my Father's Side of the family:
I am currently searching for any information I can get on Thomas Catney born in Ireland in 1856 who immigrated to the US through Port of Philadelphia PA sometime between 1882-1887. I am also looking for information on his wife Esther Catney born in Ireland (no date)and was in Fayette County PA sometime before 1888. She bore her son William Patrick Catney on Dec 25, 1888 in Uniontown,Pennsylvania. As far as I know Thomas Catney was a coal miner.
On my mother's side of the family:
I am searching for any information I can obtain about these people: Kostek Gleber (Alt spellings: Glebis, Glebes) immigrated at the age of 15 to US from Russia.
Anna Tokar (may be other spellings) immigrated at the age of 19 from Austria (but may be of Czech orgins).
I am also searching for any information on Joseph Franklin Demaske (may be alt spellings) and Richnasky (alt spellings also).
Any information I can recover on any of these people would be a great help to me. I am not only doing this to obtain information on my family but to also hopefully follow in my grandmother's footsteps and publish a book an my family history. As for information about me, I am a Senior history major at Fairmont State College. My favorite history areas are geneaology/family history and ancient history (esp Egypt). I plan on continuing in school to obtain my Masters in History and possibly my doctorate.
