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

You can reach me at kchaseatdovetailcrgdotcom. Thanks in advance!
