Does anyone know the Joseph Shuff family living on Logan Avenue, Tyrone Borough, Blair County, Pennsylvania, on the 1900 Federal Census. (1547-140-146)
Joseph Shuff is head, born December 1853 in Virginia, with both of his parents also born in Virginia. He was a Boiler Inspector. Married 20 years to Katie E Shuff, wife, born January 1862, in Pennsylvania, with both parents born in Pennsylvania. The census says they had three children. The only child left in the household is Nellie A Shuff, born November 1883, in Pennsylvania. Does anyone else know the names of the other two children?
Most of the names above were given to my Great Grandpa Edward A Shuff's children: Nellie Mae Shuff (born 1918, Louisiana), Elizabeth Josephine Shuff (Born 1921 Louisiana), and Emma Mary 'Catherine' Shuff (Born 1924, Louisiana). He was married to Odyle Relin about 1917/1918 in either Caddo Parish, Louisiana, or somewhere in Arkansas.
Edward A Shuff was born about 1881 near Altoona, PA, and died April 11, 1942, Rapides Parish, LA. He worked in the oilfields of Louisiana and Arkansas. The 1930 Census states he was first married about 1903, but we do not know where or to whom. He didn't speak about his early life. All my grandmother knew was he was born in PA, and had a brother, but she couldn't remember if she ever knew the brothers name.
Any informatin about the Joseph Shuff family and/or the Edward A Shuff family would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Lisa
