James Edward Hartley is my great grandfather. He supposedly was sent to an orphanage at some time in his life somewhere in PA. He was born June 1858 which means he would have turned 16 years old June 1874. The list of orphans I have seen seem to be compiled after 1874 date. His father was John Hartley and his mother is Sarah, her maiden name may have been Albright. This family lived in Cambria county Pa in 1860. He shows up in Centre county Pa were he married my great grandmother Sarah Ann Shannon
24 Nov 1882. She is the daughter of Edward and Mary Jane (DALE) Shannon. I'm looking for any information about these families.
