Rebecca Neilor 1780-1844 is the woman pictured in the old tin tye (Daguerrotype?) in my living room. She married Wm. wagonseller and their daughter Margaret married John Young. Their daughter Ella Rebecca Young is [my] great-great grandmother. We called her "MAM-MAM." She and Sylvester owned the mill in Kimberton, PA. She died in 1951 [I was 7 years old]. Ella R. married Sylvester Harman P. and had two sons Frank Chester Pennypacker and John Young Pennypacker.

John married Catherine King. No children.

Ella's sister Annie married Harry C. Dewees. Their son Hause owned the creamery in Birchrunville, PA (the General Store and Wright's Antiques).

I have the Wagonseller family tree also.JEP
