Major/Davies families


My gg grandfather is David R. Major. I have been trying to research the family but without too much luck. Any info you can share with me would be greatly appreciated.




I have the surname Major in my ancestry. My Great Grandmother was Berth Major. Her father was Jessee Major. Jessee was the brother of George Major who was killed by the Molly Maguires.
By Chance are your Major family related. They lived in Schuykill County then moved to Berks County.
I have been doing research on this line for a long time and have not made any connections. Hoping to share with relatives.
