OOPS!
As a Penn State alum, I should frankly know better, my last message should have referred to McKean County...must be getting too late to be doing this...Sorry about that!

TX for attaching death certif. to #137591226
TX for your quick assist, Barbara...Samuel's death certif. notes one of his sons as the informant, so I will shortly be also connecting his multiple kids to him by way of the edit function; while his death certif. lists his wife as Louisa (the mother of his kids), he interestingly appears to have been geographically separated from her for quite a spell...In fact, his 1900 Bradford County Census record declares him married to an entirely different woman, unknown what eventually happened to her (his 1920 Bradford County Census record declares him widowed, although Louisa survived him by multiple years...) Perhaps the second half of this puzzle will have to await the next genealogy detective, but you have been most helpful in solving the first half of this gentleman's puzzle, so CONGRATS TO US BOTH, BEST REGARDS, & HAPPY NEW YEAR AGAIN TO YOU & YOURS...

find-a-grave #137591226
Hi, Barbara...as a volunteer (not related to the Blowers) genealogist currently working on the Blowers clan, may I impose on you to share how you came upon Phebe Blowers' potential maiden name, Wing? If you perhaps have a copy of Samuel Gill Blowers' death certificate available (per your entry, he died in 1929), it would be swell if you could attach that to his entry, because Samuel's Mom's maiden name has apparently been eluding multiple researchers for multiple years now(your find-a-grave entry has in fact corrected multiple prior researchers who had been asserting that Samuel had passed away between 1892 & 1900...) I have already by the edit function connected up Samuel's entry with both of his Parents, which is always a gratifying thing to be able to do...REGARDS & HAPPY/HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO YOU & YOURS

Moses Case, 1781 - 1868
I have found that Moses Case, with the above dates, born in Simsbury, CT, has two burial references. One is in Lake Shore Cemetery, Avon Lake, Lorain Co. Ohio. The other is the Lakeside Cemetery, Bay Village, Cuyahoga Co. Ohio. In each entry his wife is correctly mentioned, Charlotte Miller Case. Can you shed any light on this mystery? I suspect only one is correct.

Thank you.

Could you cite the document used to determine his date of birth as 1829? I'll include a note on it because what I have shows that his year of birth was 1824.

I've added what I think is her death certificate, which now muddies the waters further. It says maiden name is Epright.

I'll let you sort it out, and let me know how you want to proceed. I'll transfer her to your care if you want to eliminate me as the middle man.

I was looking for the obit and found one that matches except for the husband. If you think it is the obit for this burial then let me know and I'll add it (send the obit back to me in case I loose it) I think the second one matches and I will add that to the entry.

MRS. MARY REESE

Last evening at the home of William Wilkinson, on William street, occurred the death of Mrs. Mary Reese, widow of Eli Reese, who had been keeping house for Mr. Wilkinson for several years. She is survived by one son, Howard, who resides in Nerberth (sic s/b Narberth).

The funeral of Mrs. Mary E. Reese was held Thursday afternoon from the parlors of Allen E. Keim, on West Lancaster avenue. It was very largely attended by a number of relatives and friends. The services were in charge of Rev. Joseph Schubert, pastor of the First Baptist Church. Interment was made at Great Valley Presbyterian Cemetery.

Frantz Cemetery
FYI: just a thought , We believe there are many much older unmarked graves in the Frantz Cemetery of Tulpehocken Twp Berks Co.PA as the land its on was originally bought by Rudolph Meyer/Moyer in 1735, and deeded to his four Children in 1767 when he died, if there is another Frantz Cemetery in that Twp that I don't know of, let me know

Thanks, Shar
