To Marleen Van Horne.
Sorry to the other members of the UEL group, I'm just interested in
asking Marleen a question :)
I see your last name is the same as one of my ancestors: Citney Ann
Vanhorn born in Pittsburgh, Frontenac, Ontario in 1833, daughter of
William Vanhorn, born in Ohio abt 1802. I have often wondered if he
was UEL because he came from the States and his parents were from New
Jersey, which from the very little amount I've read about UEL's, it
is very probable. His wife Elizabeth McLean was born in Pittsburgh
Frontenac Ontario in 1810 and apparently her father Joseph McLean was
a UEL, but I haven't found that out for sure yet.
There is quite a bit of information on this family in the LDS
Pedigree Resource File, and I contacted the submitter, but he didn't
know what UEL was let alone if the Vanhorn family fit into the category.
Since your last name is Van Horne, do you know if you are a
descendant of the same William Vanhorn & Elizabeth McLean? Were they
Jill in Alberta, Canada
