My father's surname line:

     Eltweed Pomeroy came to America about 1630. My direct line from Eltweed and wife Margery Rockett:

    Medad, Ebenezer, Daniel, Pliny I, Pliny II, Pliny III, GEORGE POMEROY and NELLIE SHERMAN, Amasa Mann, Earl Ralph I, John Robert (my father) and I, Mary Ann Pomeroy Hagen.

GEORGE POMEROY

    Born: 21 February, 1821 in Fairfield , Herkimer County , New York

    Married: 11 November, 1841 in Elizabethtown , Ontario , Canada

    Died: 26 May, 1893 in COLONA, HENRY COUNTY , ILLINOIS

    Burial: in COLONA ILLINOIS CEMETERY

       Father: Pliny Pomeroy III

       Mother: Lavina Mann

SPOUSE:

    NELLIE SHERMAN

      Born:   09 November 1824 in Elizabethtown , Leeds , Ontario , Canada

           Note how young they were, when married.

      Died: 19 September, 1901 in COLONA, HENRY COUNTY , ILLINOIS

      Burial: in COLONA ILLINOIS CEMETERY

NOTE:  I suspect that their son Amasa Mann Pomeroy came to Illinois before they did, but I'm still trying to put that part of their family story together. Some of this information is from the Albert A Pomeroy books, pub 1912, 1922, THE HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE POMEROY FAMILY (Note: descendants of Eltweed Pomeroy in America ).

    I am currently a volunteer with the new American Pomeroy Historic Genealogical Association based in Syracuse , New York . We are gradually correcting some of that published info, as well as updating it through various sources, and also from info furnished by living descendants.

3. AMASA MANN POMEROY (my great grandfather)

       Born: 21 April, 1848 in Elizabethtown , Ontario , Canada

       Died: 1916 in Illinois .

         Burial: in Abingdon Illinois Cemetery , beside his wife

       Married: 05 May, 1872 in COLONA, HENRY COUNTY , ILLINOIS

         SPOUSE: MARTHA JANE MODERWELL

NOTE: A family mystery about Amasa Mann. We have documentation that he served in the Civil War, and that Martha Jane drew a widow's pension. From correspondence reported by someone who had access to it, and whom I've been unable to contact afterwards, this family was close, loving, and kept up an active correspondence with family members who lived away, and who traveled. Yet, there is a period of several years, leading up to his death, when there is NO mention of Amasa Mann, in letters written by his wife and others which told in detail of other family members.  Was he hospitalized? Mental problems? Where was he?
