Can anyone connect with the Iliff/Williams family in Pennsylvania (Bucks and Northumerland County)
with your Iliff family. My ancestor was Sarah Iliff Houseweart and the Iliff name
was carried on in middle names of the Houseweart family.

I'm not directly, but my husband COULD be. I'm waiting for information to come back to trace the COX line.
Good luck in your search. I hope I can gather half as much just on one of my names as you have on the ILIFF's.

Mariann,
I am from the James Iliff side. He is Johns brother. John married Margaret Mercy Williams 1 Feb 1771 in Nockamixon Township, PA. I have information on their children and Johns mother and father (Richard Iliff and Isabel Yates) their land and some family history if it would help. Most of my indepth study is on James (hung for treason in 1777), but it might help you out with some events. musprotzen@aol.com

I would appreciate any information you will share as I will enter it into my family tree program in the computer.
Sarah Iliff Houseweart is my ancestor. She is buried near Sunbury, in Northumberland County but no other family are there.
They all left the area for Illinois or the wilds of Sullivan County, PA.
I have found very little information about the Iliff family.
Thanks.
