Adeline married William CORNMESSER husband of the late Catherine Jane (Elder) and they all lived in HalfMoon at the time. Also does anyone have help in finding if they moved to Blair before the death of William or where he died. GRAY was the name of the person who married Catherine and William in Bald Eagle in 1848.

Any help in identifying places to search would be appreciated. BTW, John Shaul became an engineer for the PRR & ended up being moved around extensively - very hard to track through Census records.

Dawn Amos
Query: CENTRE CO.--GOLDMAN, HELTMAN, STOVER According to DAR records, Christian GOLDMAN and his wife, Anna Maria ? died in Haines Twsp, Center Co, PA, no death dates given. Their daughter, Catherine GOLDMAN, married Joseph HELTMAN, in Centre Co. The date on the DAR record is July 22, 1818, but this is also the date given for their 1st child's birth, so it may be the date the events were recorded. Joseph and Catherine moved to Ashland, Ashland, OH. There Sarah HELTMAN, their oldest child, married Thomas STOVER. The only birth information I have for him is "Pennsylvania", although I have a birth year of 1810. I'm looking for any additional information about the GOLDMAN family--other children, where buried, etc--and the HELTMAN family--Joseph's parents, other siblings. And if by chance my Thomas STOVER should also have roots in the area, I'd love to know about that, too, although I realize the information I have on him doesn't give a lot to go on. Any help putting "leaves" on my famiy tree would be appreciated.
