In Reply to: Ralph D. Salyards, Holiidaysburg, PA. by Rachael Salyards of 25


I have been doing Salyards family history research for 29 years. I have compiled numerous records on many, many Salyards families, not just my own, over the whole U.S. In addition, I have worked with several other "Salyards Searchers" and we have shared our respective research. Back in 2003, I was contacted by a couple of cousins asking about this Ralph Salyards family. They are cousins to Tina. I will send you more information through private Emails. Here is the "bare bones" outline of this family, other children being omitted: :

1920 Federal Census for Hollisdayburg, Blair Co.
Ralph D. Salyards, age 29
Mary O., age 21
Ralph D., age 1 year, 10 months

1910 Census for Hollisdayburg
William P. Salyards, age 45
Anna G, age 46,married 26 years, mother of 11 children, all living
Ralph, 19

1900 Census for Hollisdayburg
Willliam Saylerds, age 36, b. May 1864
"Gertie," 35, b. Mar 1865 (Note: her real name was Anna Gertrude)
Ralph, 8, b. May 1892

1880 Census for Hollisdayburg
Joseph Salyards, 47
Elizabeth, age 33 (Shel appears to be a second wife)
Willliam, age 16

1870 Census for Hollisdayburg
Joseph Salliards, age 34, (slight error here in age)
William, age 6 (No older female listed here)

1860 Census for Hollisdayburg
Not found

1850 Census for Blair Township
Elizabeth Salyards, age 45 (No older male found)
Robert, age 23
Joseph, age 17
William, age 11

All three of these males served in the Civil War, Joseph in the 192d Penn. Volunteer Infantry.

1840 Census for Huntingdon Co, Henderson Twp
Elizabeth Salyards (Again, no older male head of household)
2 males under age 5
2 males ages 5-10
1 female age 15-20
1 female age 30-40

This gives you a brief outline of the family. There is some evidence that Elizabeth's husband may have been named Reuben but this is not confirmed.

As stated above, I will be in private Email communication with you.

Enjoy! L. Salyards
