Brandon's Ferry? and Melats

Would anyone have every heard of Brandon's Ferry, PA? I am searching for information on Henry Alonzo Melat. I have found a Robert Benson Melat b:1871 in Brandon's (Brandons?) Ferry that I believe is his brother, but my ggrandfather is pretty much a mystery. I can place him in Oil City, LA (not PA) in 1911, and Youngstown, OH in 1889-1890.
Any info on what happened to this town would be appreciated.

Hi Jodi,

I realize this is a very old message, but if you are still looking of information on Henry Alonzo Melat, and the Melat family in general I may be able to help you out. He is my 1st cousin 4x removed. You should check out my cousin Kipp Melat's website, www.speakingoffamily.com there is tons of Melat info on there including pictures. I have info on my Ancestry tree as well. Feel free to e-mail me at sjcobb@hotmail.com if you ever get this message. :)

Blessings
Sara Cobb

It's been quite a few yrs, so you've probably found the info you need.
Henry's passport app....b Coal City

Henry s/o Robert/Julia has census, as well as his DC on familysearch.org

I believe Brandon's Ferry is in Sandy Creek Twp, Venango Co PA where Robt & Julia [MORRISON] MELAT resided 1860
"Brandon Ferry is located at the bottom of a steep hill, on a curve of the Allegheny River and in the 1990's was still a very remote area with virtually no homes."
Another ref: says Rockland Twp....guessing ferry across river from Shady Crk to Rockland??
Use GOOGLE.....you might find some more info
