His death certificate and obituary probably have his parents' names. The PA Dept of Health should have the death certificate. The Historical and Genealogical Society of Indiana County might be able to help you find the obit. His marriage application record might have his parents. The problem is knowing in which county he got the license. The church he was a member of may have something in their death records. The cemetery he is buried in may have something in their burial records as might the funeral director who handled the burial.
A church in Clearfield County have have recorded his baptism. Check with the Clearfield County Historical Society to see if they can help you.
If he was to inherit anything when he was a minor a guardian would have been appointed to watch over his inheritance. This would have been recorded in the Orphans Court dockets in whichever county he was living in at the time. He may have inherited something from his parents as a minor or as an adult from or through his parents. In other words he may have inherited something from a grandparent. I suggest finding the estate file for the grandfather he was living with as listed in the 1900 census.
