Thanks for the info
I am working on George Formosa line,
George+Lydia and 6 Children

What is your souce for George and Lydia as parents of William?

I am always looking for more sources to pin down the family relationships. Right now I have Census, various Obits and Directory Info.

George and Lydia are buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA. Same plot as Silas and Emma Formosa,
my 2nd g-grandparents.

William Formosa was a Clerk and Later and Insurance Agent,
before he became a clergyman. He was up in Rochester NY for a spell and then down to Georgia where he and his wife both died. I did not know they were interred in MA.
I have no children for these two, but it apears they adopted a daughter in Georgia.

Wills for both Mary and William are posted on rootsweb

Also found interesting that AC Orne, with wife, son, daughterinlaw and 2 grandchildren show up in Cumberland County NJ, Landis Twp, Census in 1870.
