Hello. I hope you are still reading this page. I saw that no one had posted in a couple of years. I have an obituary notice for my great great grandfather, Theodore C. Laverty,MD, from the Middletown Journal. His parents are listed as the late Patrick and Barbara Ann Laverty. On their tombstones at St. John's Church Cemetery in Cumberland County, Pa., he is listed as Patrick M. Laverty, b.1775, d.1853. She is listed as Anna B.(Deado)Laverty, b.1796, d.1841. I would love any additional information that you may have. I agree with the spelling problems. I have a Gotwols connection, who are listed in the same family Bible as Gotwols, Gotwaltz, Gotwals, and Godwals. And this is all written by the same person!
