Hi Daniel,

I descend through John Voris (1791-1863), who I believe is a brother to Archibald Grey Voris' father James. I was wondering if you could give me any info on James Voris & Anna Grey. I don't have any dates on this couple.

Also I read that Gilbert Voris, James & John's father was buried at a cemetery in Danville, VA that was later turned into a park, and the graves were moved. Do you know where they were moved to?

I thank you,

Allan

Hello Allen,

I am descended from James Voris (Vorhis, Voorhees, Van Voorhees) and Anna Grey. James was born Oct. 24, 1787 at Northumberland, Northumberland Co., PA, and died May 24, 1866, age 78. Ann Gray was born on Apr. 18, 1789 in Ireland, and died Apr. 26, 1881, age 92. They had 14 children including Gilbert Voris, born Jan. 9, 1809 in PA and married Catharine Ashefelder (Ahsenfelder). Gilbert and Catharine would have been my great, great, gereat grandparents. Afer Gilbert's death, Catharine, with her daughter, Agnes Frosyth Voris, who married Francis Carpenter Miller, moved to Bay City, MI after the Civil War. One of their children was my grandmother.

Would be happy to share whatever info. I have. "The Van Voorhees Family in America" book has been an invaluable resource in my research. The name Voris was originally the Dutch Van Voorhees.

Do you have information on the Voris family near Danville, PA?

I believe you are correct that John was a brother of James and Archibald Gray Voris was one of James and Ann Gray Voris's 14 children. Archibald would have been a brother of my great, great, gereat grandfather Gilbert.

Thanks,

Virginia
