Thanks Carolyn. I'm glad that you didn't rewrite because I do have quite a bit of that. They are all the right people & much of it is verified by Samuel's granddaughter (my aunt). It is actually Cyrus-his siblings and parents that are my challenge. I know they all came out of Allentown,PA. The daughters of a Samuel W Stahr (I found their census report validating that he is the father of the women) signed my father's baby book as "cousins" to his mother and noted they're from Allentown, PA. A census report with Samuel W also has a William Stahr noted as a brother. So I might be going the wrong direction but Cyrus 1826 is from Allentown and so is Samuel 1828 & William 1835 and their daughters are using the term cousin.....could the 3 men be brothers from Allentown, PA and I am hitting a brick wall there. So it is Cyrus's parents and that direction that is my quest.

I am missing the documentation for Florence's wedding to Art Statt if you could steer me to that one.

I also did not have Samuel's second wifes name---so I'll probably be able to pull that info now.
Very nice of you to help, thank you so much.
