The Timen Stiddem Society

I may be related to Timen Stiddem. I received the death certificate for Lucy H. MOORE last night that lists her parents and through a bit of investigation I found some others’ research that indicates this line:

1 Timen Lulofsson [1] STIDDEM Dr. b: ABT 1610 d: 1686
     2 Lulof Lyloff [2] STEDHAM b: ABT 1654 d: 6 Jun 1704
       +  STALCOP b: ABT 1661 d: BEF 29 Jun 1714
          3 Timothy Lyloffson [11] STEDHAM b: ABT 1684 d: 1767
            + Elizabeth VANDEVER b: ABT 1696 d: ABT 5 Mar  1737/1738
              4 Lulof [41] STEDHAM b: 2 Jul 1723 d: 23 Nov 1786
                + Jane MCDOWELL d: 1764
                  5 Joseph [116] STEDHAM Capt. b: 5 Jul 1744 d: 22 Apr 1791
                    + Sarah Hedges HEDGE b: 11 May 1745 d: 20 Sep 1773
                      6 Honour [192] STIDHAM b: 26 Jan 1780 d: 7 Mar 1848
                        + William MATTHEWS b: 1778 d: 31 Jan 1848
                          7 Clara Amanda MATTHEWS b: 26 Aug 1820
                            + Benjamin N. OGLE b: 1820 d: 1902
                              8 Lucy H. OGLE b: 1848 d: 1932
                                + Charles D. MOORE b: ca1846

Cool huh? If true, I think my dad’s line now beats my mom’s (descendant of Robert AYARS) with first ancestors to America. And, I finally can say that I have some Scandinavian in me.

More Moores

The 1870 PA census is now every name searchable on, and I not only found Charles & Lucy MOORE with daughter Olivia, but found them living with Thomas & Susan MOORE. There is no relationship field in the 1870 census so I can’t be sure Thomas & Susan are Charles’ parents, but it is likely.

I then searched for Thomas & Susan in 1880. Enumerated with them is the single Elizabeth FLENARD who is listed as Thomas’ sister-in-law. Both Susan and Elizabeth were born in New Jersey, and there is a small group of FLENARDs in Burlington county in earlier censuses, although I have not found Elizabeth anytime but in 1880 so far. I don’t have immediate access to the 1860 or 1900 census. I’m looking forward to my next trip the local FHC to investigate further.
