Comments:Shelly, The task of finding my brothers was a success.After you e-mailed me Connie's address; I just picked up the telephone and called her.I do have pictures of Robert and Charles and their families.The biggest problem has been talking to the middle brother. Slowly but surely I hope to at least learn why the middle brother has not given permission for his phone number to be given to me. Connie, their mother and I both were so very happy to be in touch with each other. The only problem we have in communicating, Connie does not have a computer;so everything has to be written. We have received cards from her along with the album of the boys and families. I have also sent cards and letters.
Another great thing has happened when my e-mail address appeared in dream book I had a great aunt and her son begin corresponding with me. I had lost track of them for only 30+years. KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK. You did what a paid investagator had failed to do. Thank you so very much!!!!!!

Comments:Came to the Foor family site to verify info. about my own Foor ancestors, Archie Ray ELSEA and his first wife: Elsa Justina RIEDEL (my grandparents) and their two children: Thelma Hope ELSEA (my mother) and Arthur Ray Elsea (Not Archie Ray Jr.), (my uncle). I have submitted a form to correct each of these current listings. In addition, I have added Myself, my sister, three cousins, and our respective family members.

All of your dates for my grandparents anncestors, are correct with one possible exception: "Anna Eliza Foor" my great great grandmother. I believe her date of birth was "Jun 1844" and not "Jun 1847" as listed. If you look at her age in the 1850. '60, '70 Census records, she could not have been born in "1847". Anna's sister America (2 Mar 1846) was 2 years younger than Anna E.

Your site is amazing! Keep up the great work.

Comments:I haven't been on this site for several years now, as I've been taking care of my mother, Burnilda (Foor) Buchholz, who has lived in Coal Valley, Il. for the last 50 yrs. on a farm. She had a stroke, followed by a full hysterectomy when we learned she had ovarian cancer. For 3 yrs. she has needed some daily housekeeping, health care, home modifications and chauffering to everywhere she needed to go. This was done by my sister and I while I continued working fulltime. My 2 younger brothers have helped and the farm is still going as a farm. Mom died Dec. 12, 2006 at the farm in Coal Valley with all the family surrounding her. WE are grieving, but know she has gone to be with the Lord, as she was a devout Christian woman who read the Bible and many other books daily. We are blessed to have had such a good mother. Her father was Frank Foor, who lived in Tower Hill, Pana, Shelbyville, Il. Frank's 2nd marriage to Sylvia Henderson produced twin girls, who are in their 50's and live in S. Ill. I'll get thru the website as much as possible and I'm glad to be back, but sad to report my mom's death. Bless you for keeping this going!

Comments:I have lived in Louisa County Iowa most of my life. There have been Foor's here since the mid 1800's. I know of my Great Great Grandfather. His name was Lewis Robert Foor. He was born in 1849. I have no information on his parents or how they got to Iowa. Anyone know anything about them?
Friday, December 29th 2006 - 07:48:55 AM
Name: John Cupp
E-mail ID:
Comments:My name is John Cupp. My great-grandfather was Daniel Cupp, born in 1807 in Fairfield County, Ohio. Daniel's older sister Hester Cupp married George Fredrich Foor in 1824 in Fairfield County, Ohio. They had at least 12 children, all born in Ohio, so I must be distantly related to some Ohio Foors now.

Daniel Cupp moved with his family to Wood County, Ohio about 1839, and then to Eaton County, Michigan, about 1862. George and Hester Foor stayed in Fairfield County.

I was born in 1931 in Washtenaw County, Michigan. My father was Paul Cupp, born 1890 in Eaton County, MI. My grandfather was William Charles Cupp, born 1845 in Wood County, Ohio. My great-grandfather was Daniel Cupp, born 1807 in Fairfield County, Ohio. My great-great-grandfather was Philip Cupp, born 1784, probably in Northampton County, Pennsylvania.

I have only recently become interested in tracing my family history. Genealogy is addictive. My great-great-grandfather had nine children and my great-grandfather had seven. One of my goals now is to locate at least one living descendant of each of those children.

I am now retired and living on the north California coast. I would enjoy hearing from anyone with any connection to the Cupp and/or Foor families, from Pennsylvania, Ohio, or even Germany. Thanks.

Their only son, Doyle Ulysis Duddleson, was my grandfather. He served in WW II and died 12 January 2006. My grandfather had one child, my father Doyle Michael Duddleson - still living. My father had 2 daughters - myself and my sister. I have 2 girls; my sister one son. Any additional information on the Duddlesten/Duddleson line or the Kitchen line would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: I am the great grandaughter of Rebecca Foor/Fuhr born nov.4,1840 who married William R. Carr in Nov.19,1864.
I was wondering if anyone has any info on her. Is there any one who is related to the Foor/Fuhrs who may have some info on her parents or ancestors? Also I have never seen a photo of her or my G. Grandfather William R. Carr and was wondering if anyone may have an old photo of her at any age which i could see.
I know that her parents came from Meclenburg Germany in the early 1800's but that is the only info that I have.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Comments:While half-heartedly tracing some Bailey family members, SOMEWHERE I noticed that it appeared as though one of the Foor families had done something great. In one of the census forms [ I can't remember which one ] one of the Foor families had some of the Bailey children. The Baileys are listed as Baileys intermingled with the Foor children on the census form.I don't know if they were neighbors or some relatives to the Bailey family. Did you ever run across this in your research? I am going to keep on searching until I find it again.Yours, Susan Mittenzwey

Comments:This website is just wonderful. I could not believe how easy it was to trace my fathers family! It felt like I was cheating. However, I am now caught wanting to dig deeper. I traced this family back to Johann Lenhart Foor who came from Germany in 1742. But what part of Germany?! If there is someone out there who might be able to point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. I am new to this whole Genealogy thing and would like the help. But if you just want to talk Foor then I would love that too. I mean really, it is a great last name! (FYI: I'm a Western PA Foor straight from the Bedford Co. clan.)

Although I am a very distant relative, I still feel as though I can help with the clearification of a few facts about my family. My grandmother is Catherine Boheme and my father is David MArion Foor. I am very grateful that you have reconized our family on this website; yet, I see that there is blank spots in our information that I may be able to fill:
I was born January 19, 1987 in Niles, Ohio, my full name being Sarah Elizabeth Foor. My brother, Joseph David Foor, was born in Niles as well, on November 9, 1984. My mother's full name is Arlene Kay Foor, and her birthdate is August 21, 1955. We all currently live in Niles, Ohio.
At this moment, this is the only information that I know offhand, but it is very important to me that I have given you at least this small amount of information.
Although I am not familial with most of the Foor side of my family, I am very proud to carry the name and I hope to do it honor.
Thank you.

Comments:Hi- I became a Foor by marriage, in Lancaster, PA. Both my ex-inlaws were born in Altoona, PA. I have two adult children, Andrew Scott Foor and Kristie Lyn Foor Mevoglioni who were both born in Stratford, New Jersey. Just thought I'd add my name to the list of Foors'! By the way, there are quite a few Foors in FL, too. P.S. My son and I both live in San Jose, CA; my daughter is still back in Toms River, NJ.

Comments:HI to all the 4's out there.Wow! I didn't have any idea just how BIG this line was. I found this site by putting in the name "Fuhr Genealogy" online. This is a wonderful and informative site....thanks very much for all the work you have done. A few months ago I found out that I am connected to the Fuhr/Foor line from PA. How I am connected is, my great grandmother Keziah was a Fuhr. Her mother's name was Catherine. I found Catherine Fuhr and my g-grandmother Keziah as a child on the 1850 Philadelphia, PA census. Her sisters and brother are on there, too. Her sister Margaret was 20 in 1850, her sister Mary E. was 4 and her brother Joseph was 12. Keziah was 8 and their mother Catherine was 49. I figured Catherine was born in 1799 as her death record which I have says she died Nov 1873 being 74 years of age. She is buried in Philadelphia, PA. My problem is I have not yet been able to find out Catherine's husband's name....he was a Fuhr. I have searched through many records and have yet to find him or any mention of any Fuhr/Foor marrying. I am at a lost and a stand still. I have many Fuhr/Foor anmes in my PAF but have no way to connect yet.
Keziah Fuhr married William Norbeck in Philadelphis in 1859. On the 1860 Census it is just her and William as her first child eas born a few weeks later.
I would be deepy grateful to anyone who may be able to help me find Catherine's spouse.
I will for sure stop back and check this site every so often....thanks again!

My grandmother's parents died when she was young. I believe Hubert died in 1940 and his wife, Hazel (his sister is also named Hazel) died in 1954. I'm not sure of my great grandma Hazel's maiden name, but I was told it could be STEWART.

If anybody has any information, i would appreciate it. Hubert and Hazel are both buried at the Lithopolis Cemetary.

Comments:Wanted to give you some more information with regards to the Foor's of Bedford county, PA. My mother ran across two obituaries while going through some of my grandmothers old photos.
They are as follows; Mrs. Mary Jane Foor Aged Bedford Coutian Dies:Dated 1944 Mrs. Mary Jane Foor (Shaffer) aged 87, widow of the late Leonard J. Foor and well known resident of Bedford County, died at 11:15 last night at home of her daughter, Mrs. William H. Edwards of 602 East Bell Ave. She was born at Brush Creek Valley, Oct. 28, 1857, a daughter of the late Levi and Lydia Shaffer, and was the mother of ten children, of whom the following survive.
Levi and Arthur Foor of Mount Union, Hays Foor of Everett, Jason Foor of Lambertonville, N.J., Mrs. Blanche Shingler of Mondesto, CA., Mrs. Amanda Edwards with whom she lived with when she died. Also suurviving are twenty-eight grandchildren, thirty-six great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Several grandsons are serving in the armed forces.
Mrs. Foor was a member of the Rays Cove Christian church near Breezewood, since early childhood. Friends may call at Balentine's Funeral Home in Everett, PA after 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.

That would of been a grandmother of my grandfather. Then their was one for my grandmother's grandmother we guessed there is no date on this.

Mrs. Mary Jane Croyle

Widow of Fred Croyle, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Maden Dillinger at Queen, Bedford county. This morning at 3 o'clock. Death being attributed to complications. She was born in Saxton, October 12, 1850, the daughter of the late Samuel and Nancy Eicher, both had resided in the area of Queen. Her husband died 14 years ago. She is survived by the following children: Herman Croyle of of Youngstown, Ohio, Mrs. Maden Dellinger, with whom she made home with, Ellisworth of of Imler, Two children are deceased. She is also survived by the following brother's and sister's: George Eicher of East Freedom, Alexander Eicher of Queen, David Eicher of Cleveland, Ohio, Mrs. Elizabeth Burket and Mrs. Thomas Roudabush of Queen, thirteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She was a life long memeber of the Queen Lutheran Church. Funeral services will be conducted on Sunday morning at 10:30 in the Greenfield Reformed Church by Rev. Porter, pastor of the Methodist Church. Interment will be made in the Greenfield cementary.

My mother was unaware that both of what we believe would of been her great-grandmothers where named Mary Jane.

My name is Mark Burke Foor, I am a descendant of the Foors in Bedford County PA and I have been able (with a lot of help from Shelley)to make a straight line connection from Johann Lenhart Fuhr to my son Ian Brys Foor(DOB 1Feb99). I am currently undertaking a project to identify any of my descendants that served this country in time of war. With the information that I have found here, I was able to identify a descendant that fought in the American Revolution under General "Mad Anthony"Wayne as well as a descendant that fought in the American Civil War. I would like to try and find a picture of the Civil War descendant his name was James H. Foor and he was born on 26 Sept 1840 and died on 19 Nov 1919. Any assistance will be most welcome and appreciated.

Comments:Found a connection to my family and the Foor family, namely "Christian PITZER". Christian PITZER married "Maria Elizabetha Reede". Christian Pitzer was the son of Ulrich PITZER. Ulrich PITZER emigrated to the U.S. aboard the ship "Adventure Galley" in 1727. The "Adventure Galley" departed Rotterdam, via Plymouth, England and landed in Philadelphia in October, 1727. Ulrich PITZER spent a short time (?) in Pennsylvania, then settled in Virginia. I have additional information on the Pitzer line. You're welcome to it.

I'm still not sure if Ulrich PITZER was from the Netherlands or Germany. I have vague references that his home was in thye Palatine area of Germany.

Comments:Just looking thru a variety of geneology sites and came across this one. Large segment of my ancestors are from Bedford county as well going back to my Great Grandfather Israel Spencer and Grandfather David Spencer. Somehow, we are connected to the Bedford / Rays Cove Foors as well. I am not sure exactly how, but when you are going to the Church, Cemetary, etc. on the right just before you get there, was the home place of George and Jennie Foor. We always called them Aunt & Uncle and visited regularly (4 / 5 times a year) when I was a kid (1950's).

David Spencer is listed in the site with no date info. I think this may be my Grandfather.In addition, there is mention of some Lynn family connections with a Lynn marrying a Foor. I have to do a little more research but I may be "Double related". My Grandfather David, fathered several children prior to marrying my Grandmother. One of these was a Lynn that lived at Six Mile Run, PA. He was my 1/2 Uncle. I have to look up his first name. We always called him by nickname (Ducky). The other two children were girls and I have to look up the names for them also. I have the info at my home place down by Saxton. I will do some further looking and give details to you to see if this is a match,

My father, sister and brother are included in your site. My younger brother, Richard Allen Foor and myself were not included, probably because we were born after the book published in the 1960's.

Comments:Hello again. I am getting confused going over your database. I just realized that Sarah Buck that married Jacob I. Foor is the daughter of Mary Buck. Her death in 1858 makes it right. It also explains what Mary Buck is doing living with Jacob Foor. For the record, Sarah's father might possibly be Amos Jones, but I can't back it up.

I don't have enough Cashman information to place Mary Cashman.
Could you have the birth of William Buck wrong? Could it possibly be William L. Buck, born 1857 and md (1) a name I couldn't decipher, in Ohio. You mention he married twice. His father, John kept moving back and forth from Madison and Franklin Counties in Ohio to Bedford Co. PA. It is possible his sons did too.
Letter from John 10 Sep 1877 from London, Madison, Ohio: "One of my boys married a girl here and they have gone to keeping house here, so if my letter
does not come to hand in time he can lift it and remail. His name is William L. Buck, he married a girl by name of Any (Annie?) Rit Chenny. She is a millener and mantel maker and still works at her trade. William is clerking in a grocery store and drives a delivery wagon for the store part of his time. He gets $28.00 per month and boards himself."

Re: Jacob I. Foor and Mary Cashman. How much information do you have on this marriage? Who is Mary Cashman? I am hoping you can help me straighten a few things out. I hope the following doesn't sound too confusing.

I am a descendant of Catharine Cashman (c1767 to after 1816) and David Buck, Sr. (c1745-1816) of Providence Twp, Bedford Co., PA. Catharine's father was probably Martin or Johannes Martin Cashman. They are thought to have had the following children: Christopher, George, Elizabeth and Catharine.

David and Catharine (Cashman) Buck had a daughter, Mary Buck, born 11 Oct 1800 in Providence Twp, Bedford Co., PA. This same Mary is living with Jacob I. Foor in the 1860 census. Jacob does not have a wife, but he has two young daughters. The next census entry is of Soloman Sparks with wife Susan. I believe that Susan is Mary's sister, Susan Buck. I have a transcript of three letters from John (Jonathan Buck)son of David Buck, brother to Mary and Susan. The first letter dated March 6, 1875 was written in Bedford Co. The first part is missing. One sentence reads, "Aunt Mary Buck is well, Catharine too, neather one of them lives with me now since last spring. Catharine lives with Assa Williams, Aunt lives with Jacob Foor, no other change in our family. Been very healthy this winter."

"Aunt" is Mary Buck born in 1800 and the same Mary Buck living with Jacob I. Foor in 1860. Catharine is John's sister. My records indicate Mary never married, but had a daughter, Sarah.

I have really been trying to figure out the relationship between Mary Buck and Jacob Foor.

I have not been able to locate any of the Cashman family in the Bedford Co. census records.

Any ideas?

My email address will probably change Thursday, July 31. I'm moving to AT&T broadband. You can locate me on Ancestry WorldTree under database kae.

You will note that I have Mary's mother as Catharine or Mary Cashman. I have determined she was not Mary, but that readers of the letters I have didn't have Jonathan correctly identified and thought he was talking about his aunt Catharine and he called her Mary. Catharine was his grandmother and he never mentioned her, only his aunt Mary (daughter of Catharine) and his sister Catharine.

Comments:My father is John Lucius Foor from Bedford County, PA. He is the 5th child of Jason Elton Foor and Edith Pearl (Irvin) Foor. When I was a little girl my dad told me lots of stories about the Fuhr/Foor family. According to him, 3 brothers came to America from Amsterdam via Ireland?? One settled in PA, one went south and the other west, maybe to Montana. He had great stories about a feud between 2 factions of the Philadelphia Foors. One brother became wealthy and another didn't. He also mentioned an ancestor who was a ranking officer in the Revolution, who fought beside George Washington. One relative who supposedly was hanged for horse theft (he was from the other side). And the biggest tale of all-That the family owned all the land which is now Philadelphia, But it was taken from them by the Government. I'm looking forward to finding out how much of his stories are true.

Kinda hit this site by accident, but find it interesting. We just celebrated our 85th??? Foor reunion near Breezewood, PA. on the first sat. in August as we do every aug. We had about 750 there at noon for the meal. We own our own grounds which sits beside Rays Cove Church. The cemetary is loaded with Foor kin. My great grandfather, Simon Jasper Newton Foor is buried here.

Comments:Trying to track down my Fuhrer (Furrow) genealogy.

My greatgrandfather was Joseph FURROW born 24 Sep 1881 somewhere in West Virginia. I believe his father changed their last name from Fuhrer to Furrow sometime before 1890. I am looking for a Fuhrer who died in West Virginia, Kentucky or Arkansas between 1890 and 1930.
