I can't tell you how excited I am! I've been researching my family for over 10 yrs & my husband's family for nearly that long and this is the closest relative I've ever encountered! And for it to be a line that I don't have much info is incredible! :)

I am sending you an email. Since first posting that, I have been able to piece together more info. My husband's grandfather was Hugh MacPherson, James Smith MacPherson's older brother.

Hugh married Rose Schick & they lived in Fox Chase - in an area they referred to as Burholm. When they retired they moved to Bricktown, near Point Pleasant.

Their daughter, also named Rose, lived in Secane until about 1980. Rose told me that she didn't keep in contact with her father's siblings, but does remember going to a birthday or anniversary party in Willow Grove for one of them...maybe Charles?

I have a few photos that I have scanned and could send to you if you are interested.
