Re: Gordons of Venango Co., PA
I wish I knew!!
The only connection I have is a newspaper clipping from a NY paper stating that Samuel Gordon of Scotland left his estate to brother George Gordon of Pennsylvania. According to my ggg-grandfather, Joseph Gordon, b 1799, that was his grandfather.
There is a mention of a
"Gordon Homeplace" in Venango County, in a marriage announcement. I can't find it.
I'm so brickwalled on this George Gordon in Pa. I certainly can't connect him to anyone in Scotland other than the newspaper announcement.
There was also another set of Gordon's in the Mercer/Venango area at the same time as my Joseph. They were ministers named Joseph and George Gordon. They do not connect to my family that I have found.
