Trying to find more info on Andrew Bruce. I know he came over in 1800 and resided in Beaver, Pa. Married to Agnes Reney (1779-1849).

Want to trace his lineage but hit a wall.

Anyone know who his parents were? Basically wondering if his lineage links up at all with "the" Bruce's of Scotland.

Did Andrew Bruce by any chance have a daughter Elizabeth Bruce b.1807 in Pennsylvania? Married Joseph Atkins in 1828 in or near Clymer, NY.

These are the children I have him having with Agnes:

Ann
Elinor
Agnes Nancy
ELIZABETH abt 1804
William
Margaret
Mary
Andrew
John
Robert
Jean

I do see a record where an Elizabeth Bruce b. 1807 married a Joseph Atkins (b. 1797 in Vermont)and married in IL. I don't see one in NY however. Could they have married in IL?

I have them married in 1828 in or near Clymer, NY. Their son, Ira Bruce was born in 1830 in New York and as the family moved it grew. They were in Illinois for a time and then to Iowa and then to Wisconsin. Joseph Atkins died in Wisconsin sometime after 1850 and before 1860. I sure wish we could come up with more info. She was in Green Lake Co., WI. when I last saw the name in the 1860 census.

Hmm - I know what you mean about wanting find out more. I am stuck with Andrew Bruce. These folks back then seemed to have died very young and then remarried which makes tracking them down difficult. (multiple names) Of course, some moved like crazy, which I just never thought would have happened considering their means of travel, but it seems for some, it did!

I can do a quick search for her and Joseph Atkins, but somehow I doubt I'll do better than what you already have.

Just got info that Elizabeth Bruce was married to a man named, Lister and she died on Feb 1, 1851. Perhaps this is not the same Elizabeth or perhaps she had two husbands? Maybe you can try looking for Elizaeth Lister with the dates you have and the dates I have and see what you come up with? b. 12 Sept 1804 d. 1 Feb 1851

I have been researching the Atkins families that came through Vermont. Any chance you might know who Joseph Atkins' parents were?

My Atkins relation moved from Vermont to Chautauqua Co., NY in the early 1800s. It would seem logical that others from Vermont would as well.

I'm curious your source of the marriage in Clymer, NY though.

Thanks!
