I am in search of James HASSAN and Mary LIPPERT. They were married in Clearfiled, Clearfield Co, PA. in 1871. They had five children, all boys, James, John, Frank, William and Charles HASSAN. The father James HASSAN who married Mary LIPPERT was killed in a minning accident in 1878, not sure where. His wife Mary came back to Clearfield, she died after giving birth to my grandfather Charles Augustine HASSAN. All 5 boys were put in the St. Joseph Orphenage in Erie, PA. They are all listed on the 1880 census in Erie, as being in the Orphenage. My grandfather Charles was adopted by Edward and Mary BOWERS from Elk , later Cameron Co, PA,after 1880. His name was changed to Joseph Edward BOWERS. He also had an adopted sister named Cami BOWERS. Joseph stayed on the farm with his adopted parents until they both died. So between 1911-1920 he left PA and came out to Oregon. If anyone has information on any of these individuals please contact me!!!!!!
