Some of the more common names at this time are McGlinsey Armstrong Johnston Kinney Riddle Smith Snoke and Thompson. The earliest born McGlinsey I have is Edward McGlinsey born November 1831 in Pennsylvania and died February 15, 1882 in Berrien Co., Michigan. I believe his parents were born in Ireland, but have no proof. His wife's maiden name is Rea Jane Beistle born January 1831 in Pennsylvania and died July 22, 1901 in Elkhart, IN. Rea's mother's name was Rebecca maiden name unknown born about 1800 in Pennsylvania. Rebecca is listed on 1860 census in Selinsgrove, Snyder Co., PA with Edward and Rea McGlinsey. However Rebecca can be found on 1850 Penns TWP., Union Co., PA (later became Selinsgrove, Snyder Co., PA) census with Nicolaus and Susana Crotzer.
