FYI, for those of you with Johann Michael Kettenring on your family tree. He was, as you may know, married in 1766 in Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, PA. That congregation is still alive and thriving and has a web site. There is some information on the history of the church, a photograph of the edifice (dedicated in 1766), and a virtual tour. The address is http://www.trinitylancaster.org/

JB Alcorn and Wife Celebrate Golden Wedding

The Affair Was Largely Attended And Proved A Most Joyous Occasion

Beautiful Presents Received

“Fifty years ago last Wednesday, Mr. And Mrs. J.B. Alcorn were united in marriage by the Rev. Yetter, of Delmont. Their golden wedding celebration at their home last Wednesday was a happy event in the lives of the couple when their children and grandchildren all gathered around them to honor the occasion.

The home was beautifully decorated, the color scheme being carried out with clematis, sunflowers, golden glow, golden rod and lady slippers, which was artistically arranged and made a beautiful and appropriate decoration.

At the noon hour the guests gathered around the festive board for the wedding feast. The table fairly groaned with good things to eat and presented a scene long to be remembered by the guests. One end of the table was occupied by the wedding cake which was heart shaped and on the top was inscribed in gold, “50th Anniversary, 1863 to 1913”. The cake was made by the celebrated caterers, Kuhn, of Pittsburgh and was a beautiful specimen of the caterers art.

At the wedding fifty years ago, Mary Ann Hoffman, of Murraysville, was bridesmaid and Jacob Bowman, now of Oregon, acted as best man.

Mr. and Mrs. Alcorn have been blessed with eight children and one of the happy incidents of the celebration was the fact that all the children and grandchildren are living and were present at the anniversary. They are N. J. Alcorn, wife and children, Misses Venie and Ruth and Margaret Jones, of East End, Pittsburgh; J.K. Raub, wife and children, Miss Glesson and Clifford, and J.C. Alcorn, wife and children, Kinter and Paul, all of Vandergrift; A.G. Jack, wife and children Pauline, Arthur, Lucine and Carl, of Brackenridge; E.E. Cochran, wife and children, Margaret, Gilmore and Forest; A.H. Alcorn, wife and children, James and Robert, and H. O. Burkett, wife and children, all of Apollo; Lemuel [copy is cut off here]

Other guests present were Rev. and Mrs. Brockway and son, David, of Apollo, Pa; John Dorn and wife, Lynn Hoffman and L.D. Hoffman, of New Alexandria; Mrs. Anderson, of Greensburg; Bert Hoffman and wife, of Latrobe; Mrs. Elizabeth and Miss Lydia Kuhns, of Salina; Miss Julia Kuhns, of Brackenridge, and miss Helen Lytle, of Apollo.

The couple were the recipients of a handsome sum of gold and many other useful gifts.

10 John Sibley arrived in America in 1629. He came with Reverend Higgenson, and was among the group who came in Winthrop's Fleet, a commercial enterprise bent on settling the colonies in North America. He first came to Salem, Ma., but later moved to Manchester where he owned land. Records indicate that there were two brothers, John and Richard who came to Salem in 1629. Both these men were married and they united with the church at Charlestown. There are records that indicate that John's wife was named Sarah and also Rachel Pickworth. It is possible that John was married more than once but no proof of this has been found. John Sibley took the freeman's oath 3 Sep 1634. He was a Selectman from the town of Salem and he wen to the general Court at Boston. John had come from Dorsetshire in England where he had made a legal contract in 1617. This indicates that he must have been born about 1597. He had a brother, William, who made a contract at the same time concerning their father's land. The father's name was also William Sibley.  Family: F7

30 Anna Jean Alcorn was born in the house built c. 1835 at Alcorn's Crossroads in Bell Township, Westmoreland County, Pa. She attended Grove City College.

Jean, as she preferred to be called, moved from the farm to Long Branch, NJ in the 1940's; she moved with her cousin Margaret Alcorn and worked as a medical secretary for Dr. David Diamond.

After World War II, Dr. Diamond introduced her to Bernard Halbstein whom she married in 1949.

Like her father, Jean served on the Board of Education in Oceanport, NJ, from 1963-1969; she was part of the committee that oversaw the construction of Maple Place school which was completed in 1965.

She was committed to her family and to her work on the board of education; she was a strong advocate for her own children and the children of the community.

Like her husband Bernard, she, too, was an avid golfer.

Her death was untimely, she was stricken with cancer at 57; after what seemed like a successful surgery her remission ended and her health declined until her death in 1976 at the age of 58.

34 George was given first name because it was an old family name ("Memories" funeral book, written by his mother, Alta Jean (Barber) Alcorn.) and "Frank" for a favorite uncle. I assume this would be his mother's brother, Frank Alcorn.

41 From "Alcorn Family Tree", Michael Alcorn:

"The oituary states that Lemuel was born at Alcorn Crossroads in Wasthington Township, but Alcorn Crossroads (intersection of Pa. rt 286 & 819) is in Bell Township, about 1 mile east of the Washington Township. The 1870 census has him listed as Samuel, the 1880 has him listed as Lemuel, and 1900 as Elemuell; also the Poke Run Presbyterian Church records have him as Samuel. My father [Michael Alcorn's father] was named after him and his name was Lemuel."
