Fife children: Florence (b 1906), Velma (b 1903), Rowene (b 1901), Raymond (b 1899), Geneive (b 1900) and Selwyn (b 1905).

bonsai Much of the Fife family information in my database came from a booklet called
Descendants of John and William Fife, 1721-1890.
In it is listed about seven of the first American generations of my Fife ancestors and cousins, all descended from
two brothers who emigrated from Fifeshire, Scotland via County Tyrone, Ireland in the 1700's and settled in what is now

Upper St. Clair Twp in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
Any Fifes from western Pennsylvania or eastern Ohio in your family?
