Welcome to Christie's Family History Website!

I have been researching my family's history for a few years, and wanted to create a place where I could share the information I have gathered. I started with some basic information from family members about the recent generations - my grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents. Then, with that information, I began searching on the internet for further information on these families.

Lycoming County, Pennsylvania

My family has deep roots in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, as both of my parents were born there, and all of my grandparents spent most of their lives there. As a result, I have gathered a lot of information on the families of this county.

Some families who lived in Lycoming County which are tied into my family tree include:

  • Bardo/Barto
  • Marshall
  • Brobst/Probst
  • Morrison
  • Carpenter
  • Ritter
  • Cline
  • Smith
  • Cohick/Cowhick
  • Stratton
  • Dutton
  • Wurster
  • English
  • My maternal grandmother's parents both descend from families which were in Lycoming County for at least a few generations. Their names were Winfield Frederick Cline and Sarah Margaret Ritter.

    My grandmother was Ruth Leona Marshall. Several generations of her family also lived in Lycoming County.


    In addition, two of my grandparents are of Italian descent. I have been less successful at gathering information about them, but still want to share what I know about them as well.

    My Italian surnames which originate in Italy include the following:

  • Caroccia
  • DiStasi
  • Romano
  • Stone (Astone)
  • My maternal grandfather's parents were both born in Felitto, Salerno Province, Italy. Their names were Nicola Caroccia and Maria Teresa DiStasi. Both emmigrated from Italy in the early part of the 20th century.

    My paternal grandfather was Charles Stone. He descends from families which emmigrated from Sicily, Italy in the late part of the 19th century.

    A Note about Conventions I Use

    Several people included in my database are still living. To respect their privacy, their names are listed as "Unknown". Because of this, you will find several "unknown" people in my database.

    There are also several cases where I have been unable to find the maiden name of a woman. In this case, her surname will be listed as the surname of her husband, in parentheses.
