So intrigued by this wonderful history. Funny, when you are children it doesn't much interest you. As you grow older you yearn to know more about the history of your neighborhoods. Thank you to all who post this information.

I am a retiree of what was once National Aniline and Dye and is now Honeywell in Marcus Hook PA. Several retirees have memorabilia which they would like to donate to an appropriate Historical Society where they can be seen by others. What would you suggest?

Hi Keith,

I have a question about the original name of Prospect Park, PA. Could you clarify the name of the town for me? Was it Moore, PA, Moore's Station, PA or Moores, PA. I'm writing an article about Olivet Presbyterian Church and I'm finding various names of the town, which I need to clarify. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Betsey Radcliffe

I lived in Glenolden till 2001: I still miss those old Sycamore tress that lined Glenn Ave before Rambler Rd. and the old Anderson House restaurant across from the Rambler dealer on Chester Pike, where I would occasionally have breakfast. I live on Isabel Ave before moving to Rambler rd. in 1977

Hello,

I am interested in the history of Delaware county as I think it might lead to discovering the parents of a William Mc Crumb born in the 1793. DO you have any records of a McCrumb family in the county at that time? Thanks so much and your history page is fascinating!

Hi,

I am researching the kaolin mining industry in southeast PA and northern DE. It appears that the clay was discovered in the mid-1700s and mined on a small scale until the 1850 when mining improvements allowed it to be more economically feasible. Around the Great Depression it appears the pricing for kaolin diminished and a lot of companies closed up shop, especially before WWII. I was wondering if the Delaware Count H.S. had anything on kaolin mining from the mid-1800 to 1942 or so.

There are a few names that have come up in my research for SE PA:
Israel Hoopes (d1853)
Isaac Hoopes
Hamilton Graham (from Coatesville)
American Kaolin Company (started in Philadelphia in 1856)
Howard Spenser
Kaolin, PA
Hockessin, DE
Union Kaolin (William Wharton, National Kaolin, Harvey & Johns)
Brandywine Summit
Cedar Knoll Kaolin Works
Diamond State Kaolin Works
Israel Lacy (Lacey)
Golding & Company (Moses, William, and Edwin Golding)
Newark China Clay Company (1912-1942)
Victor E. Ullman
Peach Kaolin Company

Anyone have any info on Sara/Sarah Horn/Horne who lived on Morton and Swarthmore Avenue in Folsom. She had a sister that lived across the street. I think the houses were built around 1920. Their father was a sea captain. I lived in the house that Sara owned and would love to have any info.
thanks
