Jim Heald

The 1850 census for Slippery Rock Township shows the Phillip Fonner name spelled as Foner. This was a spelling error on the part of the census enumerator. The name should have been spelled with two n's. George Fonner is my great grandfather and Phillip is my gr. gr. grandfather.
The Christine you wrote about could very well be in the same family as Wampum and Slippery Rock are close by. There were several girls in the family, but I don't know there names.
It is interesting to note that my Gr. Grandfaather George H. Fonner enlisted in the Union Army at "Wampum, Pa on November 6, 1861. He joined the Pa 101 st Regiment. He was captured by the Confederates in April 1864 and escaped from Andersonville Prison in October 1864.
After the war George married Annette Evans at Franklin, Pa. Venango County.
