Cathy Young, I wrote to the county historical society some time ago asking whom to contact, and where, to get some documents from Clearfield County. Have not recieved any word from them. Maybe you can tell me? I need a death certificate and (hopefully) more later. Are all records at the same address?? Also if you could give me some idea of what it costs to get a copy of a record. Thanking you in advance.

Regards, Robert Rupe

Hi Cathy, I see you are the sponsor for Clearfield Co. PA. I am searching for Elizabeth Pentz who was born there on Sept. 21, 1846. She married my g-grandfather Walter C. Parker who was born in Crawford Co PA. They were supposedly married in Jefferson Co,PA. Would you be so kind and see if you can find any info on these people? Also, are there any histories of Clearfield Co. available? Thanks for your help.

Looking for info on CHARLES O'NEILL, born about 1826 in Ireland. Emigrated to Scotland (ended up in Airdrie, outside Glasgow we think) probably around 1860, where family lived for about 25 years. Came to U.S. in 1882. Settled in CLearfield County. Wife was AGNES SWEENEY. Had children Margaret, Hugh, Jane, Susan, Charles, & Henry - all of whom were born in Scotland, with exception of Hugh, who was born in Ireland beforev family left for Scotland.

Looking for info on HUGH O'NEILL, Charles' son. Born on June 29, 1857 (or maybe 1858) in Irleand (or maybe Scotland). Came to U.S. from Scotland October 27, 1880 (preceded his father & rest of fmaily by a couple of years). Was coal miner in Clearfield and Cambria Counties. Married HANNAH WARD on Jun 10, 1887 in Christ the King Church in Houtzdale. Had children Charles, Susan, John, Patrick, and James. Died sometime in 1944 in Morrisdale.

Am interested in specific death dates (so I can get death certificates). Am interested in collateral info on Vulcan ?? mines. Hugh worked in mines while living in Carrolltown.

Am interested in info on WARD line (Hugh's wife).

Am interested in info on other relatives. Apparently families lived and are living in and around Clearfield and Cambria counties for both Charles' and Hugh's lifetimes.

Thanks. -- (Charles P.) Pat O'Neill (great-great grandson of Charles above).
