Submitter: Joan Beebe meddaugh
Query = Am looking for information about William Swartz born 1895 in Ulysses, Pa. He may have died in the 1980's? He married Wava ? who was born in 1894. She died I think in 1978. They lived in Cortland till their death. I think the street address was Lake, or Court. It has been about 38 years since I have seen them. If some one could do a census check for me from the years 1920 to 1930 which I figure was the time period that William may have come to Cortland I would appreciate it. As for Wava, I only know of her birth and approximate death. They had no children to my knowledge. I would appreciate any information you can give me and also if there is a funeral director that might be able to help. An the name of the local cemetery. I am hoping for as much help in finding information about them as possible. Thank you Joan
