Having settled now in Hazelton, I have some time to wander around a bit. Is there an office at the Terra Alta Cemetery? Still no luck finding death records for Elizabeth (Lizzie?) Neely Brahm Freeland, who died in 1912 at age 48, supposedly on a Freeland Farm in Terra Alta. Checked WV, MD archives since she sought care at Johns Hopkins. Her parents, Leonard Funk Brahm and her mom Narcissa Neely Brahm, came from PA, but her mom died young too. She was married to James Wm Freeland who didn't die until 1948. He had lived in Brandonville married to Virginia Spurgeon, his last wife.

Any thoughts? Lizzie is buried at the Terra Alta Cemetery with her sister, Arminta Brahm Messenger.

Also, in looking for 1928 estate records for Lousia King (Koenig) Freeland Wilburn who died in her 90s in Terra Alta, where would I go? To the courthouse, library?

Thanks to all.
