Re: Joseph Northend - England & Meadville 1880
Joseph Northend and Mary Ellen Blackburn Northend came from Bradford, England in around 1866. After losing three little children, their Doctor advised Joseph to take his young wife to a different climate in America.
Settling in Meadville, PA, they successfully raised 5 children, all born approximately two years apart: Joseph, Martha, Alfred William Dummer, Elizabeth, and Maud Edna(born 9/15/1877).
Maud Edna was married to William John Burger, a dentist from Rochester, NY. They lived in Erie, PA at 629 Lincoln Ave. Maud Edna passed in 1946, Dr. Burger in 1961. They are buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery.
