William Davenport, 1817 and Elizabeth Rowe, 1811 lived and raised their children in South Huntingdon Twp, Westmoreland Co, PA. Elizabeth Rowe was one of nine children of Andrew Rowe, Jr. We have extensive records of the Rowe and Sell ancestors available on the FTM site.
William's daughter, Susanna, married Noah Zimmerman and produced 13 children; Sarah Zimmerman, 1882 being my grandmother, who married Rev. Paul H Andree. Rev Andree was the pastor of the Monongahela Church of the Nazarene, Monongahela, PA for 38 years, retiring in the 1960's.
William's only son Joseph, 1851, was a minister in the United Brethren Church. His only son was William, who went to Alaska in 1900 for gold and never heard from again.
We are searching for William's ancestors. There was a Joseph Davenport who lived in S. Huntingdon Twp at the same time, but we have no proof of their connection. Any help is appreciated.
Andrew Rowe, Sr served in the Rev.War in the Northampton Co Militia, 4th Company, 6th Class, under Captain George Rowe, who was probably either his father or brother. He married Betsy Sell (Sellen) while still living in Northampton Co. The Sell family precedes the rowe family info by 3 generations. About 1689 Hendrick, Martin, and Dirk came from Germany to a place they called Germantown in Pa. Their info can be found on the FTM site.
Andrew was the father of 20 children from 3 wives; Betsy Sell, Elizabeth Barbara Heintzelman, and Margarte Schuster. Andrew moved to Westmoreland Co about 1800 with his second wife. The family was raised in the southern portions of South Huntingdon Twp. in the regions of Jacobs Creek over the next many generations; and many are buried at the Barren Run Cemetery, at
the United Methodist Church (Formerly the United Brethren Church)
Andrew Sr's son Andrew Jr had a daughter Elizabeth, who married my gg-grandfather, William Davenport. Susanna Davenport married Noah Zimmerman, and their daughter sarah married my grandfather, the rev Paul H Andree. He was the pastor at the Monongahela church of the Nazarene, Monongahela, Pa for 38 years untill he retired in the 1960's.
We are looking for Rev Andree's father, who was either from Pittsburgh, southern Allegheny Co, Rostraver Twp, Westmoreland Co, or the Monongahela, Washington Co area.
