Trip to Centre CO
Posted by: Eugene Moffitt (ID *****0472) Date: May 23, 2008 at 16:25:50

I am planning a trip to Centre Co July 25 through Aug 1st. Any information to help me save time because it will be limited would be helpful.

I am looking for my GGfather William Moffit married to Hannah Cartwright. The had a son George that was born Sept 5 1873 in Phillipsburg and moved to Patton Cambria CO aboiut 1895
I have Georges death certificate (Jan 23, 1913) and it says William was from Scotland and Hannah Cartwright was from Bald Eagle PA.

The 1900 census for Patton shows George his wife and his mother Hannah living in the same household. Hannah is listed as a widow. When George filed his marriage (1899)application it has both William and Hannah on it. But I have not been able to find William anywhere. Could it be that he haad died sometime prior to that date and they listed his name anyway??

thanks for any helpful leads
