Surname(s): Cole/Kohl
County: Clearfield/Centre

Comments:
I'm looking for the mother of my grandfather. No records were really kept about the parentage of my grandfather, Albert Young, Sr b. 10/1911. He was raised by the Young family and his father was either the man who raised him or his brother. Story has i that his mother was some sort of run around and that her name may have been something like Alma Cole (or Kohl). I don't know the spelling for sure. All that I can go by are the stories that I've heard from some elder family members. They were raised my grandfather's brothers and sisters and knew that there were rumors about Albert not being their full brother. However, it was not talked about much in the open. I've requested my grandfather's military records but I expect them to only provide the names of those that raised him. The rumor also has it that Alma lived with the Youngs until after Albert was born. Then when she 'became ill' she went back to her home in Philipsburg.
