I have been doing some family tree research and came across a letter from my grandmother where she states that she and my grandfather were married in St. Michaels Church in Chester, and I see that the Delaware County Historical society may have records from St. Michaels. She also states that her parents were married in St. Michaels. Here is the information I have:

My grandparents were Edward Joseph Fitzgerald and Gertrude Marie Mack and they were married in 1923. If you could find anything like the exact date and any information that could help me dig deeper into their parents I would appreciate it.

My grandfather's father was Thomas Fitzgerald born in 1855 in Ireland and his mother was Mary (middle initial E). I don't know her last name or where she was born.

My grandmother's parents, who were married in St. Michaels, were Edward Mack, born in New York state around 1855, and Margaret T. Bruton born in Pennsylvania around 1857. It looks like Edward Mack and Margaret had their first child in 1888 so they may have married around 1886-1887.

Margaret Bruton may have grown up in Chester because I found a US Census later in her life where she was listed as a widow living with her mother, Catherine, in Chester. I believe Catherine's maiden name was Croak and that she was married to William J. Bruton. They may have also married in St. Michaels.

Please let me know if you can help by replying to my email at tfitzgerald@turflux.com

Hello, while hiking off trail from Jane Lownes park to Smedley, i found 2 separate concrete markers in 2 different areas with the initials “E.M.” Upon research, my hike matches up to the 1926 map that these markers stood for Dr Edward Martin (his property was there” and it was called Orchard Farm). I thought that was really neat. He was borm in the late 1800s and dief in the the 1930s. Please post if you have information about this and thanks!

I lived at 628 East Ashland Avenue from 1943 to 1962. I have incredible memories of growing up in an idyllic small town with the freedom to roam anywhere, explore the Muckinipatas Creek, the wooded
area near our home, be the beneficiary of fresh beets from the gentleman who farmed the land behind our home (name escapes me now) and search through his plowed ground in the early spring for shards of
pottery (Horn & Hardart) and glass (previously dumped on his land from trucks coming out of Philadelphia). Memories of Sam Myers being our crossing guard across Primos Avenue after closing of school days; wonderful Fourth of July celebrations by the Folcroft Volunteer Fire Department; spring carnival put on by the Folcroft Fire Department; Sam Myers tacking a sign on our front door warning of MUMPS in the home; Fred, the Sealtest milkman, driving his horse-drawn wagon as he delivered milk and cream to our neighborhood (and plopping a huge piece of ice in the yard one summer for all the kids on our street to play with; the Bond breadman bringing breads and donuts; Mr. Cannady picking up our shoes to be resoled or re-heeled and dry-cleaning; the ragman in his horse-drawn cart during the war years; and the huckster who drove the woody wagon with fresh produce in the summer. Wonderful memories.

Hi- I was sitting next to the Horace Lewis house on 252 and West Chester Pike, usually a few times a week anymore, thinking about how long I have been looking at this house in my life. I am from Newtown Square, went to Alice Grim, etc., etc. I somehow remember this house from my childhood and my mother saying that the band teacher, Mr. Doran, lived there. This would be in the late 50's early 60's. Anyway, I finally saw the sign that said whose house it was and looked it up when I got home.
A very interesting story about Mr. Horace Lewis and his part in Newtown Square and the development of the fire department and the Quaker meeting house. Very interesting- thanks!
But what was really interesting was that we were once part of Chester County but were absorbed into Delaware County. Will need to look into that.

Hello!
Working on the family tree and recently discovered connection to Radnor as one line of my family seems to be early settlers in Radnor from Wales.
Very interesting to go back 10 and 11 generations

Margaret E. Shane

I'm looking for the name (and possibly more info) of a grocery store (or Tea or Tea and Coffee company) that would have been in operation on Main St. in Darby in 1912.
Thank you for your time!
