I'm currently working on my great grandfather Lyman Cobb Fletcher's family, including his brother James B. Fletcher of Clearfield. Both were part of a large extended family centered in Monroe Twp., Bedford Co., PA, dating back to the 1790s in that area. James Fletcher married Mary Catherine Means, also of Monroe Twp., and relocated to Clearfield in the late 1880s, where he operated a masonry construction business. The Fletchers had at least 9 children, 8 of whom were living in 1900. I'm looking for any obit/burial info regarding the family, as well as estate documentation. I believe both James and Mary Catherine were baptized Catholic, though I don't know if they maintained that practice in Clearfield. James died in the early 1940s.

Any help with the above will be most appreciated.
