Re: John W. Pass

In Reply to: Re: John W. Pass by D.J. Pass of 292

My great grandmother Ethel Dee Liddle descends from some Pass's. Upon the death of my grandmother I had come into contact with some antique documents and writings that were a big help in my genealogy research. Among these things the Pass family was mentioned.

I will type a quotation from one of these items:

"Father served in the Spanish American War, also worked in coal mines. Mother's maiden name also Keen (no relation, so far as we know)-Maternal Grandmother (Mrs. tom Keen (nee Pass of Williamsport, PA.). The Liberty Bell was cast in the foundry owned by Pass, my grandmother's uncle, and Stow. (see picture "The Bell's First Note", Mr. Pass standing in fore-ground.)."

I can only assume that the Pass that was referred to as owning the foundry the Liberty Bell was forged in was John Pass of Malta. If these are the same person seems he had some relatives in the U.S. or something.
