I am sorry to say that I have no other information than what is in the obit. I am not related to Mr. Moss, just a Find A Grave volunteer.

I have found that there are duplicate markers sometimes, if the family has a plot in a cemetery. I believe this to be the case, as his parents, two sisters and brother are buried in Cambria.

Also, Saffron Wings took the picture of the headstone in Greenlawn Southwest in May of 2010, which is a duplicate stone from the one in Cambria.

I am sorry I could not be of better help.

RE: Lydia Yarnell Slack
Thanks for the two sites with Slack information. It added to what I know.
I did find where the bio came from. It is in A History of Uniontown - The County Seat of Fayette County Pennsylvania. It was written by James Hadden. The book also had information on the McCleans.
Thanks for your help. It is amazing how one small bio could lead me on to a book that was new to me.

Lydia Yarnall Slack is buried in the Historic Presbyterian Public Cemetery in Uniontown Fayette County PA.
It looks like Jennifer F Shank added the original record May 8, 2008. Memorial # 26698377. You added information about Lydia and family. I can't figure out if the info came from a book or was transcribed from her head stone.

I am researching my McClean family and ran across your posting information on Lydia and her family, especially her daughter Tamzon and her husband Ephraim McClean. This is wonderful information and I would like to include it in my tree. Could you tell me where you found the information. I would love to add a source to the information.

RE: Minnie

You are awesome. I appreciate your flexibility.

Rereading what I initially wrote I noticed I accidentally typed "that" twice. "His speculation is that that the name might have been IMPS " would become "His speculation is that the name might have been IMPS ".

I very much like how you wrote the paragraph about Minnie Kauffmann Kline's parents on her page.

Thank you, again.

RE: Minnie
Hi Cashie,

Regarding Minnie's mother's maiden name... EMPS was a name listed after Catherine in a family bible. It is the only place that name has appeared in any "source" documents. A KAUFFMAN cousin in France verified EMPS was not a common last name in France or surrounding area at the time. His speculation is that that the name might have been IMPS and heard and recorded as EMPS. There is still no documentation in then French records for her. The search continues.

RE: Minnie
Thank you for your quick response about Minnie' Belle Kauffmann Klein/Kline parents.

What I know... Minnie's father, Frank A. Kauffmann was born 10 Feb 1810 in Neewiller, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France and died 23 October 1881 in Sonoma County, California, USA. Minnie's mother Catherine was born in Alsace, France in 1818 and died 23 October 1881 in Sonoma County, California, USA. Catherine's maiden name is still a mystery.

Tibbetts family from Illinois
Hi Cashie!
I am a decendant of John and Polly Tibbetts from Illinois. This would be the grandparents of James William Tibbetts Jr that is listed (# 27198743) and his brother Francis Marion Tibbetts (my great grandfather, # 69454573).
We have virtually no info on William Tibbetts Sr (in fact we did not know his first name was James. I could not find anything in Find-A-Grave. Can you provide any info relating to James William Tibbetts Jr to provide us more info on his father (Sr)?

Anyway, I added John Tibbetts to F-A-G with what info we do have.

James William Riggs (I have Williams on both sides of the family)

Susan Bowles
Yes, it is very interesting now, your update looks great, I figured something out after I checked into as who was Susan Bowles ( Patton ). Her parents has a Find A Grave memorial in Union, Franklin Co. Missouri. I put in for a link for Susan. Then I found out that a FamilySearch file exist for property appraisals for this William Nelson Patton in 1858 and it looks like George Hearst bought his property. It shows also a inventory of personal properly and live stock and slaves, then they had an auction that shows all the people by name that bought all of this stuff, very interesting to show this part. So, my question is, how did after Susan's parents died, which were both of them in the same year of 1857, who did she travel with, I do know that George Hearst married Pheobe in June of 1862 in Missouri, could it had been George and Pheobe, and that Susan appreciated them so much to had named two of her children after them, this part I believe not just that she married a descendant of one, but for their help. Maybe to, for it could be possible that George Hearst introduced her to Caleb his cousin.

I made copies of those appraisal records

I wonder what else happened.

The Boys
Now that we have involved the Hearst family on this, I wonder if they the family had known that some cousins were hanging around. I would would think so, for Caleb and Susan Bowles named two children after George and his wife Phoebe Hearst, Susan had to agree with this, or they were working out here on the Hearst Ranch and appreciated their help. Another thing that I found, George Hearst is in the Census up in Nevada Co. In Nevada City, in the Great California voters Register, Caleb and his brother George Milton Bowles had registered in 1868 and 1871 in Birchville, Nevada Co. California. Did Hearst had any interest at that time too,

Hearst Connection
Hi Cashie, again, searching a little bit more on these two Bowles Twin Boys and you get the Hearst family in evolved. You say, how is that possible. George F Hearst b. 1820 in Franklin Co; who's father was Wm George HearstThe Hearst family came this County. Caleb Bowles, the twin boys father's mother was Mary ( Polly ) Hearst, who married Caleb Bowles Sr in Franklin Co Missouri in 1822 b. 1785 - 1836 died in Missouri. Mary Hearst was sister to this Wm Geo Hearst, so Caleb Jr and George F Hearst were 1st cousins, there for, the two boys and framed William Randolph Hearst were in it self, were 2nd cousins. Look it up.
You never know in this line of research, Wow.

So, is it possible that Caleb and George Hearst came out to California together, they both ended up here on the Central Coast. coming from Franklin Co. Missouri

Twin Babies
Hi Cashie, was interesting to find out about these two boys family, and at this time am waiting for the creator of Margaret Martinelli memorial to link her up. I looked at this families web site for the S. Martinelli & Company, it mentions that their founder Stephen Martinelli came to the U S in 1859, it seems to be true here, I found a Ships Passengers list for 1859 that seems to be him, and the age for him is right on too, but it states that he was a Sailor at 15, it probably was his payed ride to America, a one time deal. He may have done a good job, and was proud of it, maybe the Captain hate to see him go. And that's why he put down SAILOR. The 1860 census for him in Watsonville states 17 years old.

the article is about her husband (what else is new?) and she is only mentioned as an afterthought and only in relation to her male ancestors. It is in Biographical and portrait cyclopedia of Fayette County, Pennsylvania, page 217

RE: William Hagan
I read the census you posted - thank you.
I did find some info on Lizzie Hagan. She married Oscar W. Ott (b.Cincinnati OH) on 5-30-1901. Marriage cert. lists her age as 17, which jives with the birthdate of Sept.1884 that you have for Lizzie.
I found an Oscar W. Ott b.1881 Cincinnati OH, d.1916 Wheeling WV. His d/c lists him as SINGLE, but I would bet the rent that's her husband.
