Hi Laura_

Samuel D Welton b. June 1835 (Scots-Welsh descent) married Priscilla Dible b. January 1835 (Germanic descent on both sides) on January 29, 1856 in Salem Twp., Westmoreland County, PA. Parents of both Samuel and Priscilla were born in PA however information on Samuel is incomplete. Hoping that a trip to Greensburg in summer will clarify things. Priscilla's lineage in Westmoreland County is traceable through her father, grandfather and great grandfather 100 years prior to Priscilla's birth.

Dibblviss was the original surname altho several members later chose to shorten it considerably. It is known that Priscilla's grandfather was an Esquire (statesman and attorney) in the early days of Westmoreland County. Her father, Isaac Dible was born in Westmoreland County in 1806_ her mother, Catherine Rowe (Rau) was born October 20, 1809, also in Westmoreland County. The Rowe family is intertwined with the Barnharts in several smaller branches in the Greensburg and Hemphill areas. Parents and grandparents of Samuel were all born in PA, which allows that they were in the US at a very early date_ possibly the very late 1600's or early 1700's.

1860 Census for the household of Isaac and Catherine Dible does not list Priscilla as she is already married. Her oldest brother Henry is a school teacher. The complete list of their 10 children is as follows: Henry Jacob b. 1832, Priscilla b. January 1835, Mary Ellen b. March 1841, Elizabeth b. 1842, George b. June 1844, John b. August 1847, Sarah b. September 1848, Margaret Ann b. May 1850, Franklin P b. March 1853 and Catherine b. January 1855.

A few others from the direct line of the DIBLE/DeVilbiss families report that there were 13 children_ Henry, Priscilla, Anna Jean, Elizabeth, Mary, George, Sarah, Daniel, Jacob, John, Lucetta, Margaret and Julia. Have found nothing relevant with the additional names. Details requested for this grouping were not forthcoming.

Information I have states that Samuel D Welton and wife Priscilla had 9 children: Elizabeth J b. 1859_ Mary Catherine b. 1861_ Sarah E b. 1863_ David S b. 1864_ (my Great grandmother), Anna Belle b. Dec 3, 1868/d. July 13, 1904 _ Samuel D II b. March 1870_ George W b. Dec 1871_ Cora May b. May 28, 1876 and Margaret Florence b. Nov 18, 1879/d. June 30, 1912.

Samuel's father is unconfirmed at this time but his mother was Margaret Elizabeth McBride b. 1805. She resided with Samuel and Priscilla at the age of 78 but is not mentioned after that. Her lineage is also unconfirmed except to state that she was born in PA and both parents were born in Ireland according to the Census record.

Welton sisters, Anna Belle and Margaret Florence married brothers. John Ralston Barnhart b. Feb 25, 1869/d. June 17, 1935 was the husband of Anna B and his youngest brother Warren Wesley Barnhart b. Aug 7, 1878/d. March 3, 1926 was the husband of Margaret. John and Anna had 3 daughters_ Edith Pearl, Margaret Priscilla and Anna Belle (my grandmother). John was a blacksmith in Worthington for many years and 2 years after his wife died in 1904, he married a second time to Sidney Campbell. They are all buried at the Presbyterian Cemetery in Worthington.

Mary Catherine married Gabriel Yockey and they lived out their lives in Worthington as well. I do not have information regarding their family.

David S details are confirmed in Census records. 1920 Census documents household of David S Welton_ David S 56, wife Mary 26, father Samuel D 84, mother Priscilla 85_ children listed are: John S 26, Homer C 24, David JR 5, Carl 4 yrs/8 mos, and Melvin 3 yrs/8 mos. This record states that Samuel D and Priscilla are retired.

Samuel D Welton II married Eva E Unknown and had 3 daughters_ Viola, Grace and Frances. Samuel II works at a sand plant.

George W b. December 1871/ d. 1910 was married to Mary Elizabeth b. September 1871/ d. 1909 and had 3 children_ Blancheb. July 1894, Sylvia J b. Nov 1896 and Carl Edward b. 1900/d. 1912. Suspected that their early deaths were due to flu epidemic of the times.

Information you provided for Cora May is more than I had before.

Information regarding the youngest Margaret states that she and Warren Barnhart were married on Feb 13, 1902_ they had 2 children_ Richard Samuel Barnhart SR b. Aug 25, 1902 and Lola Belle b. 1905. The children were quite young when she died in 1912. There is some notation of him and brother John in the book, Source: page 674-675
"Armstrong County, Pennsylvania Her People, Past and Present"__ J.H. Beers and Co. 1914Armstrong County

About 7 years after Margaret's death, Warren married again to Flora James and had 2 more sons.

There are a few more details with the furtherance of the lines and will provide whatever direction you choose.

Regards and apologies for the delay_ computer problems.

Thank you so much for this information. It was so much fun reading through it. I sent a copy to my mom and sisters. I have recently made the connection for Priscilla Dible's parents. However, I had no clue who Samuel's mother was -- It is great to be able to put a name with her. If you come across any addtional information on his mother and/or his father PLEASE, let me know. For Cora May Welton I have a little more information. She was Married to Joseph Edward Peat 16 jun 1896 he died 3 Aug 1907 They had two children Oran Peat 15 Jul 1899 and Mary Priscilla Peat Born 11 Apr 1901. After Joseph Died Cora Married Ross Toy Bowser. I have a copy of a picture with Samuel Welton and Priscilla Dible in it. If you are interested Please, let me know.

Thanks again for you help.

Posted a reply about 3 weeks ago but do not see it in this listing. No doubt I inadvertently deleted it instead.

Have been going over the pix you sent (and thank you again for this) looking for familial traits among other significant clues.

The pix with the 3 older people seated, Samuel is flanked by two women_ on his right is his sister, Elizabeth b. 1832 and his wife, Priscilla is on his left side.

Without proof of course, it is most likely that the pix was taken by David S Welton, whose 2nd wife Mary, is standing next to Oran_both are directly behind Samuel's wife, Priscilla.

The reason I state that most likely the older woman on Samuel's right is his sister and not his mother is because Samuel's mother, Margaret Elizabeth (McBride) was living with Samuel and Priscilla when the 1870 Census was taken. She was 75 y/o in 1870 so it's safe to assume that it is her daughter, Elizabeth that is in the early 1900's pix. She is 3-4 years older than Samuel and the family resemblance is very strong. I do not have any other information for the sister.

The info I've acquired over the years allows that Samuel and Priscilla had 9 children. Of that number, 2 sons appear to be very closely named although they have birthdates separating them by 6 years. David S was born in 1864 and Samuel D (II) was born in March 1870. Both are documented in Census records.

David S (AKA S. David) had 5 sons and I believe he was married twice_ he had 2 sons with the first wife (name unknown) and 3 sons with the second wife, Mary.

Samuel and Priscilla lived with David and Mary in their final years.

The other son of similar naming, Samuel D (II), was married to Eve E (unknown) and they had 3 daughters. Still working on other connections. Will let you know what I find. Thanks again.

Thanks for the reply and the additional information. I was thinking it was was probably their son David who took the picture too. I was glad to hear that is what you thought also.

I have been wondering if Samuel and Priscilla's son Samuel was married to Eva Ross. I have not been able to prove this but have found on the internet on the Beers Project under John Alexander Ross who was married to Sadie Welton that John Alexander Ross has a sister Eve who was married to a Samuel Wellon. I am wondering if this is a misprint and it really should be Welton. Do you have any information which might support this?

Thanks,
Laura
