I was interested in your query , I am not certain where Emporium Pa. is located but my maiden name is Tilburg I was born(1983) and raised in Virgina however my father was born (1961) and raised in Williamsport Pa. I remember my grandfather the late (194?-1991) John Leon Tilburg and his Father ( my great grand father ) John( 1998?)A very devout Catholic both from Williamsport Pa but this is as much family history as I have from my Tilburg ancestory, I would be interested to find out more. My father has told me , he was told Tilburg was once spelled VanTilburgh but Van- and -h where dropped when our family settled in America.
I am certain there are not too many Tilburg famliy decendents in American let alone Pa.
I would love to find more on the Tilburg family in Pa.
