Happy birthday to Mary Magdalena (Landis) Hocker, wife of George Hocker. Molly was my 4G grandmother. She was born 4 Feb 1800 in Derry Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania and died 22 Feb 1825. ∞
I learned a lot about mining from the Scottish Mining website—including the fact that Alexander Buchanan died as a result of injuries from a coal pit accident.
I found a couple neat sites while doing my James Buchanan research. The National Library of Scotland has Ordinance Maps of Scotland, 1898-1904 online. Very useful for looking up all those locations. It even shows coal pits on the map.
Do You Know Me? The next installment in the Unidentified Pennsylvanians series features a photo of a young woman who may have lived in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania in the early 20th century.
