Clintondale, CLINTON, CO. -- My great-great grandparents were Samuel (1838-1920) and Mary Jane Shillin (1848-1948), buried in Cedar Hill at Lamar, PA. Mary Jane's father was George Allison (any info?) Their only son Harry U. Shilling (1867-1956) and second wife Mary also buried at Cedar Hill. I would like to find out where Harry's first wife, Avice Idonna Truckenmiller is buried, she died (about 1897 to 1904) giving birth, my grandfather Roy Clifford Shilling (or Clifford Leroy) was five and Harry's only child that survived. Contact was lost with Clifford around the 1930's, last know to have lived in Clintondale at a corner house, friends called him "Spic" and I believe he was a logger. Any info would be greatly welcome!
Thanks, Peggy SHILLING Burgess

Hi Peggy,

I believe we are researching the same family. George Allison was married to A. Catherine Seyler, daughter of Anna Catharine Brosius and Peter Seyler. I do have some data on the Shilling connection and lots on the Seylers.

Would be glad to share information with you.

Here is a thumb-nail sketch! I have the Familiy Group Sheets ready to mail to you.

Peter Seyler, born May 17, 1776. His parents have been reported to be Jost/Yost and Elizabeth (Heckert) Seyler. I am not certain of this! Peter married Anna Catharine Brosius, daughter of John Nicholas and Anna (Wager) Brosius. Anna was born Ocober 1, 1782. Peter died May 8, 1855 in Lamar and Anna July 1, 1857. They are buried at Mt.

Joseph, b November 16, 1817 - MY HUSBAND'S LINE

ANNA CATHARINE SEYLER, first married George Frazier and secondly, William Mann. Nothing is known of these marriages. She married George Allison, son of Archibald and Elanor (McCormick) Allison. George died September 28, 1866 and Anna in 1878. Both are buried Cedar Hill Cemetery, Mill Hall, PA. Their children:

Ellen Catherine, b September 1840 (she married a Seyler)
Sarah, b ca 1842
MARY JANE, born June 24, 1848

MARY JANE ALLISON married SAMUEL F. SHILLING on October 4, 1865. Samuel was the son of John and Mary Shilling. John was born 1813 and Mary born 1813 and died April 18, 1878. Samuel was a carpenter by trade. It appears from census records they lived their entire life in the Clintondale area. Sam died August 1920 and Mary on November 15, 1948. They are buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Mill Hall, PA. They were the parents of:

Harry Ulysses, December 1868
Louella Eva, February 1875

HARRY ULYSSES SHILLING was born December 14, 1868 in Clintondale, PA. He was married to Mary Hofnagle, who was born in Union Co., PA. She died July 1953 and Harry on October 16, 1956. Harry's occupation was shown a farmer and a contract thresherman. They were the parents of:

Clifford, August 1892

CLIFFORD SHILLING appears in the 1900 and 1910 census as living with his grandparents.

Louella Eva Shilling, child of Sam and Mary, was born in February 1875. She married Ambrose B. Holter on May 9, 1895 in Howard, PA. Ambrose was the son of Benjamin and Mollie Holter. Louella was a seamstress and Ambrose performed farming and general labor. Ambrose served as Constable in 1895. He died in 1939 and Louella died in October 1960. They were the parents of:

Harold Allison, b January 4, 1896

Harold Allison Holter married Dora McMutrie in January 1918. Dora, born October 2, 1898 in Spring Mills, was the daughter of Scott and Emma (Gramley) McMutrie. Harold operated a sawmill. He died September 9, 1960 and Dora March 5, 1969. They are buried in Hublersburg Cemetery, Hublersburg, PA. They were the parents of:

Randolph, born ca 1932
Madeline H.

The only thing I know about them is Madeline was married to ??? Bryan.

I have the following documents which I'll send you a copy of:

Marriage App.: Luella Shilling
Obit: Harold Holter
Obit: Dora Holter
Bday Celebration: Mary Jane (Allison) Shilling
Obit: Samuel Shilling
Obit: Harry U. Shilling

When you get REALLY interested - (hehe) I have the Will of Archibald and George Allison, a story about the Allison family, copies of some census records, obits for Ellen (Allison) and James Seyler, some for some of their children, and one really great story about an Italian gang who tried to kill Lewis Knapp!!

Just think all of this and more to come - let me know what you think!

Would you like me to respond to the list of SHILLINGS as well as the list of SEYLERS? Some of the data you may be able to get off of my earlier post here. Those are the only family members that I know anything about.

Am working on your list. These are other names in the family that I have data on: KRAPE, LOHR, MARKLE, BRESSLER, WALHIZER, YEAGER, as well as many others. Please let me know how you would like this data transmitted to you.

I look forward to contributing to your project.

Your best bet would be to submit each surname as a separate query. If you have lineage charts, etc., you want me to review, you may mail them to me separately.

I did a search on the Seyler name in PA and came up with your name. I am starting research on that name in PA and thought I would tell you were I am and see if you can help.

Johann Michael Redweil AKA REDWINE and Christina are my 6th G-grandparents. Mike came to PA on the ship Osgood from the Rhineland in 1750. He at the time is single. His Bible record gives his wife as Christina and states she was born in Germany. I have come across the below record and this sums up were I am on my maternal line.

1755 - PA, Northampton Co., Johann Michael Redweil and Christina in 1755, were sponsors to Johann Michael, son of Peter & Anna Barbara Seyler, in what is now St. Luke's Lutheran church. Located 5 miles east of Hellertown, in Williams Twp., Northampton Co., PA. Source: [Pennsylvania German Church Records of Births, Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, Etc., from the PA German Society Proceedings and Addresses (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1983), vol. 2, p. 55]. Given that people of that time frequently acted as sponsors for relatives lets this researcher think, Christina's maiden name was Seyler. Although she may just as well have been the sister not of Peter Seyler but of his wife, Anna Barbara.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Surnames: Lohr

I am responding to a post from 1998, in which you stated that you had information pertaining to the Lohr family. I am researching a Jacob Lohr who emmigrated to Pennsylvania in 1774 on the ship "Union".

Please let me know if this may be in the same family as you have.

Thank you
