I wish you were right, but don't know. Anna Reap was born approx 1847. I don't know her parents names but I know she was born in PA. I think she married Patrick Hurst (an Irish immigrant) approx 1868-1869 In the 1870 Census for Hyde Park section of Scranton Anna, Patrick and 7mo old son are listed. I haven't been able to find anything else on them. I believe Thomas must have died at an early age as I have never heard anything about him. They had John in 1871 (my grandfather)in Scranton. John married Julia Hastings in 1898 at St Patricks in Hyde Park. They had six children: Thomas (my father), John, Edward, Anna, Mary and Margaret.
I did not find Anna and Patrick in the 1880 Census, however, their son John, age 9, was living with Patrick's brother Tom. Mary, age 6, was living with Patrick and Ellen Hennigan. I believe Ellen was Anna's sister.
According to Cathedral Cemetery, Hyde Park, Patrick, Anna and infant Henry were buried sometime before 1885.
Let me know what you think.
