- HELFRICH posted by Christine
Barnett on Saturday, May 2, 1998
- Leo George HELFRICH Sr was born in PA (probably Armstrong County). He
married Margaret King (born in MO). They had at least one son named Leo
George HELFRICH born on 30 Sep 1881 in PA. My guess is that Leo George
HELFRICH Sr was probably born around 1860 (based on the birth date of his
son). I am trying to find the actual date of birth for Leo George HELFRICH
Sr. Is there a PA Death Index that would perhaps show his date of death?
Thank you in advance. Chris

Dahl on Saturday, May 2, 1998
- I am trying to locate information on the Benjamin Franklin King family
of Freeport, PA. Where was B.F.King in the 1850 census. He was listed in
the county history book as being a prominent citizen of Freeport yet I can
not find he or his family in the 1850 census. He does not die till 1869
and he is buried at the Freeport cemetery with the rest of his family. He
married Elizabeth Murphy, daughter of Capt. Samuel Murphy of South Buffalo
twp. B.F. King and Elizabeth were the parents of Mary 1821/1097 who
married John L Weir, Elizabeth King 1822/1884 wife of Samuel Weaver,
Margaret King 1825/1904 wife of David G Coffee, Maria 1828/1902 wife of
William Bruerton, and Benjamin F Jr 1840/1883 who married Elizabeth
Clawson. If anyone can find this family in the 1850 census please let me
know at email@example.com. Thanks so much..

- Frederick Boudreau appears in the 1850 Census of Armstrong County in
Allegheny TWP. His country of origin is shown as Canada. He married in
1850 in Allegheny TWP to Elizabeth Kerr. I have not been able to recover a

SPEER posted by Richard
Allen on Thursday, May 14, 1998
- I am seeking information on the ancestry of my great great grandfather,
Lincoln Grant Shoop (b.:Armstrong ct.,1864). His father was Jacob Oscar
Shoop (b.:Armstrong ct.,1829), the son of John Shoop (d.:Armstrong
ct.,1872) and Jane Klingensmith (d.:?,1861). His mother was Martha Speer
(b.: Armstrong ct.,1830), the daughter of Robert Speer. Her brother was
John Speer who moved to Kansas in the 1850's. On a visit to the area in
1989, I found the graves of a Robert Speer (d.:1880) and his wife Jane
(d.:1888) in the Kittanning cemetery. The Shoops are buried elsewhere,
possibly the Appleby Manor or Ford City cemeteries, but I didn't have time
to look. Thank you for your help..

- GIRTS, SMITH
posted by Kathy Zagorac on Monday, May 18,
- Searching for information on the parents of Clara/Clarinda/and possibly
Florinda fits in there somehow, SMITH. Clara was born in 1858. I have
located a Theophilis SMITH in the 1830 Armstrong Census, Plumbcreek Twp..
I believe that he or one of his sons, also named Theophilis, moved to
Porter Twp., Clarion County. I think that the Theophilis SMITH I found in
1860 Clarion is the right parent of Clara but I'm not sure as her death
certificate says his name is Theodore. Clara's mother's name was Janet
Girts according to the 1910 census and Clara's D.C.. The Theophilis Smith
I found has a wife named Jane. Siblings of Clara from the census include:
Archibald, Mary, Emily, Anna, George, Rosanna, Nancy, Assemath? or Jewitt,
Ida M.. I am also interested in the HARMEN GIRTS family. He too is found
in Armstrong County in 1830 - Clarion Twp., and either he or a son moved
to Porter Twp., Clarion County. I suspect that this is Janet/Jane Girts'
father. If any of this rings a bell I! would appreciate hearing from you..
