My ggrandfather was William Franklin Pryor who lived most of his adult life in Hughesville (Lycoming Ct.)PA. His parents were William and Maria Prior of Bloomsburg, PA (1850 census). (Maria was likely the daughter of Heinrich Billman.) The family was somehow disrupted in the 1850s and William F. was in the home of Henry Reader in McEwensville, (Northumberland Ct) according to the 1860 census. William F. subsequently married Alvaretta Ritter and we have good information on their descendants. In addition William and Maria listed children Henry Prior born 1844 and Mary E. born 1846. The 1860 census shows Henry in the home of John Beaver in Deleware twp., Northumberland Ct. I am in contact with a descendant of Henry. In addition to William and Henry, some researchers say that William and Maria had three other sons, James b. 1850, David b. abt 1854 and Laurence b.abt 1860. James married Caroline Ritter and we have good records on their descendants. David married Anna ?? and his residence according to the 1880 census was Delaware twp, Northumberland Ct. He was listed as a laborer. Laurence, in the 1880 census was listed as a farm laborer and in the residence of John Nicely. Henry, David or Laurence could have been the father of Mary Ella, since I don't know their offspring. If any of this matches your information, let me know.
