Notes for Pamela (Permelia?) Van Trease
1811 - daughter Pamela born to Frederick Jr & Elizabeth. I have wondered if her name was Permelia instead of Pamela, as the name Permelia was more common at that time in Kentucky. In his book "A Decade of Digging", Robert Van Trees has a question mark by Pamela's name in his list of the children of James Frederick VanTrease, but he lists her as having a birthdate of 1811 and a death date of 1843.
