The 1870 McElroy's City Directory for Philadelphia lists a feed store owned by Ephraim V. (poss."Y") Apple and Samuel Stoneback at 2009 American St. Ephraim's home is listed as being at 2316 N. 16th St.
I am looking for Ephraim's origins. According to the 1910 Census, he was born about 1836 in PA. His wife's name was Aravesta. His son's name was William H. Apple, born about 1871.
My ancestor is Levina Stoneback Schmidt Donnelly. I believe she may have been related to Samuel Stoneback. Incidentally, her death certificate was signed by Dr. A.A. Apple. Is it possible her personal physician was a relative of Ephraim?
I believe that her Stoneback family was from the Quakertown, Bucks County, PA area. Is Ephraim from the Bucks County branch of the Apple family? Is it possible that Samuel Stoneback and Ephraim Apple were in business together because of being childhood friends or acquaintances?
I would be grateful for any help with this.
