I have just found Eliza WEIGLE in the 1860 census living in Second Division, York Borough. It shows a child Agnes, 3 years. Eliza would have been born in 1834 probably in York County. Would like to get her birth date and who her parents were. Also, was Agnes her child? I believe that she is the Eliza who married John HOODNER.



Any information on the THAWLEY and THORLEY families in York County, from early 1700s to present would be appreciated.
