My great great grandfather was an apprentice to a man named Ayers (sorry first name) between 1833 to 1840. My great great grandfather's name was Joseph Burchard Stites. He was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we assume Cape May. Joseph's older brother, John was the one who apprenticed him out. We don't know where from. I'm not sure if Joseph and his family moved from New Jersey to Philadelphia or he was taken from New Jersey to Philadelphia for the apprenticeship. I also know that Joseph was not supposed to be taken out of Philadelphia, but was and Joseph ended up in IL, I have two places: one was Christian County, IL and the other was Pike, IL. Does anyone have any information about anything like this in their past?
Also, while trying to find information about Joseph, I did come across some information that I found interesting: two, possibly three Stites males who were in the same generation of Joseph's father (sadly, we know nothing of him except that he died at sea in South America), early 1800's, who married two or thee different Ayers girls (I assume that they were sisters) so I'm wondering if there was a connection between the Ayers girls in New Jersey and the Ayers in PA and that's why Joseph was apprenticed to them.
see my initial posting for information, found that these names could possibly be variations of Pahides as P in greek is R in english.
Rula or Roula
Socreates would be her fathers name, do not really know that Julie is Rula or Roula in greek.
Looking for the PAHIDES family:
Looking for the Pahides family..my Aunt Jacqueline is looking for her family that she has never met. She is not out to gain anything just the connection. Just to meet her family. Her half sisters name is Rula (julie??) Pahides, she believes her Fathers name was Socreates Pahides. My Aunts mothers name was Mary Minerva Bowers. She knows they resided in the Pennsylvania. Philadelphia area, United States. She was approached many years ago by an unknown woman who asked her for her name, the woman had a young girl with her who looked exactly like my Aunt. When my Aunt told the unknown woman her name the woman left and my Aunt never heard from nor saw this person ever again.Even if there were a promised marriage between my Aunts Father and someone else this should not have been a reason to never allow my Aunt access to her family. We all need to know where we come from and our familys history and maybe any genetic health issues. Rula (Julie in greek??) would be about 55 today. Please if anyone knows of this family contact me as soon as possible Thank You for your time and patience Sincerely Lisa A Cincotti
В 1919-25 годах старший брат моего дедушки, Иван Матвеевич Арцишевский ( родился 19.09.1860 г. в сенненском уезде Могилёвской губернии), с частью семьи эмигрировал в Америку. Родители Ивана: отец Матвей Леонович Арцишевский (р.1829 г.) , мать Гудзиловская Антонина. В семье были: сёстры Марьяна и Констанция, младший брат Михаил (родился 22.03.1863 г., умер в 1919 году). В России ( по неподтверждённым данным) остался сын Владислав, расстрелянный НКВД в 1937 году. Прошу откликнуться потомков Ивана.
