Lloyd Amy

Lloyd Amy was my grandfather and his only child, Warren, my father.

I remember meeting someone named Press when I was very young.

Thank you. It's fun to see my grandfather as a young man

Amy surname and Palmer surname

I am the descendant of Thomas Amy b. 1803 in NH. In 1850 he was living in Bloomfield, Crawford, PA. His 3 oldest children were born somewhere in NY. I discovered that his wife Emeline was a Palmer through a vital record. I was wondering if you have come across Thomas Amy or Emeline Palmer in your research. I don't think it's a coincidence that the name Palmer appears in your Amy family. I have proven with certainty that Thomas Amy of Bloomfield is not the son of Micah Amy. Thank you for your time.

Thank you for posting these Amy family photos

My dad's father was Albert Iilo Amy. I am the great-granddaughter of Meletus "Leet" Amy.

Amy family photoes

My father was Thomas O. Press, the son of Albert Ross Press and Phoebe Ethel Amy. I am also the great grandaughter of Abram Meletus Amy. I just happened to get back into this site to get some dates off the information he had there. He passed away in 2004, and I never knew at the time that he had put the photos up there. I was pleasantly surprised by a "google search" to find many items he posted on the internet.

I am so happy that you were able to connect with these photos. My father was very close to his uncle Glenn and Uncle Arden in the picture. Of course they are also gone. I can't say I know too much about your great grandfather, but if you are willing to share additional photos or other information, it would be nice to get that connection myself. I am in the process of working on a family tree on, include all my parents ancestors and decendents. If you are interested, please e-mail at the above e-mail.

Thanks for writing. Elaine M. Press Henry
