In my stash of Au/Aue information, I have again come across pages copied from "Pennsylvania Vital Records" Vol II, "Notices From the Franklin Repository, Chanbersburg, 1802-1805". Dated February 28. - "John Aw informs his friends and the public in general that he intends to commence the Blue Dyeing and Coverlet Weaving at the house of Mr. John Meesey, Shoemaker....." (etc.). Does anyone have this "John AW" in their ancestry? He does not seem to tie in with those AW/Au/Aue families that I and/or my "cousins" are connected to. The article is very interesting as it describes the patterns he weaves. I will gladly mail it to anyone who can use it - too bad he is not mine; a very talented man, would be interesting to see if some of his work still survives.
