Boring Family from Cambria
Hi there. I have a picture of Lawrence Boring with his two sisters, Nora and Celia. I've been trying to find someone to connect this to. Lawrence Boring married my g-g Hulda Dearmin. Happy to share with you.

The picture was found the attic of the Amigh house. I also have one that says on the back, Grandpa Boring and his two grandchildren, but that's it, as well as "grandma and grandpa Boring"

I'm hoping you might be able to connect them to others?

RE: John Esch
It seems a more common trend all the time - not listing the cemetery. Frustrating.

Thank you.

Us Bone Chasers must work as a team and turn over every stone and provide that data to others with the same interests.

Jeanne Kuhn Carter
Troxell/Kuhn line
Joan, I want to thank you for all the work you have done on William M. Kuhn (#30593982) and his line. He was my paternal grandfather. . I have more recent information on his line if anyone is interested, but I am still trying to locate more information on his wife (my grandmother), Josephine Elmira Johnson. I have her death cert which confirms her parents as John Johnson and Amanda Buchanan. However, she was part American Indian (I was told Cherokee, although I do not see many Cherokee's in PA). She had enough Indian blood to receive a check (from the government,I was told) but my father was diluted one generation too many. However, I cannot find anymore info on her. If anyone has any, I would appreciate it. But thanks again Joan (third cousin, once removed?) for your hard work!!
