HUNTINGDON, PA (made in 1787 from Bedford)
also lays next to=Blair, Cambria, Clearfield, Centre, Mifflin, Juniata, Franklin, Fulton 

...before 1787 look for records in Bedford of which Huntingdon was a part. Prior to 1846
    all the territory that now comprises Blair county, with the exception of North Woodbury and
    Greenfield townships which came from Bedford, was a part of Huntingdon.
    After 1846 records for this area would be in Hollidaysburg. In 1800 a
    portion of Franklin Township went to Centre County and became a part of
    Ferguson Township and a small portion of Warriors Mark Township in
    Huntingdon County went to Half Moon Township Centre County. Look for records
    in Bellefonte.

"James Cowen" b. in Maryland Abt. 1795/96 married "Sarah" (last name
unknown) b. in Maryland Abt. 1796/97. They had at least 3 children:
Sophia, Ann, & James. James age 54 and Sophia age 53 appear in the 1850
Census living in Clay Twp., Huntingdon Co., PA. Also, living with them
was a 62 year old woman named, Ann Sollars probably a sister of either
James or Sarah.==
Dana Majernik [majerdm@yahoo.com]

Hoping someone will recognize the names of these women and tell me either to whom they were married or from whom they descend?

In the 1850 Federal Census for Clay Township, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, we find a 62 year old woman named, "Ann Sollars," living in the household of one, James Cowen. Below are the names of those in the household:

James Cowen, 56, farmer
Sarah Cowen (wife) 54
Ann Cowen (daughter) 20
James Cowen (son) 17
Ann "Sollars" 62 (relationship unknown)

James "Cowans" and his wife Sarah "Cowans" are found buried in the Old School Baptist Church yard on Meadow Gap Rd., near Three Springs, Huntingdon Co., PA

Found right beside James and Sarah are the headstones for Matilda A. "Sollers" and Nancy "Sollers." Is it possible that Matilda A. is the same person as Ann, perhaps, she went by her middle name?

Does anyone know who Ann, Matilda, and Nancy Sollars/Sollers are? Does anyone know the relationship of these women to either James Cowen/Cowans or his wife, Sarah? Does anyone know anything about James Cowen/Cowans?

James and Sarah are my ggg grandparents, but I also descend from the Sollars/Sollers through another grandparent.

Any info greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am looking for information on ancestors of Frederick Sellers, born
Huntingdon County, PA in 1824 (Civil War records) or 1831 (census information).
Frederick died 31 May 1903 in Indiana County, PA.

Brother James also was born in Huntingdon County 5 Mar 1827, died 10 April 1903 in Altoona, PA.

Another brother, John Sellers, was born in Centre County, PA August 1832 or 1833.
John married a Susan Burtnett. John's death certificate (21 July 1919)
stated that his parents were John and Mary Sellers.

There was a sister Ann, who married a William Halen. The Halens lived in Altoona, PA. The brothers and sisters were said to be orphans.
