Find A Grave Memorial# 149602839 & Find A Grave Memorial# 149603041 Did you find evidence of their deaths through the Clerk of the Orphan's Court Clearfield County Pennsylvania ?? A large portion of the family traveled to Poweshiek County Iowa. I've found no evidence that they are buried in Clearfield County

Hello, Joan,

I thought you might wish to see the grave marker for Ruth Louden Huy. I posted a photo on her memorial.

Best regards,

I hope your new computer came with an automatic backup system! And that you copy to an external drive at least weekly. Sounds like you've got quite a job ahead of you.
