BAXTER, GROSE, SPARROW posted by Judith Colhour on Thursday, August 3, 2000

My grandfather,John Franklin Grose/Gross married a woman named Nellie Baxter or Sparrow at the time of their marriage in 1898. We think that the marriage took place in Armstrong county in Williamsburg, but have been unable to confirm this. Any information about either would be appreciated. He was using the spelling Grose at the time of the marriage.

BOVAIRD, BURT, BURTT posted by Ken Burt on Monday, August 28, 2000

Okay, since January of last year, I have gained a little data to help narrow the search. My father, Kenneth Melville, states his birthdate as Dec. 4, 1896 in Parkers Landing, Armstrong (? Shows Clarion in topozone), PA. There should be a WWI veterans memorial near there that has his name on it, though I believe it was spelled Burtt on the monument. My grandfather, David Andrew, married to Martha ?, lists his birthdate as June 27, 1875 in Greanoke, PA. I am ASSUMING this to be the Green Oak area of Armstrong Co. He lists his parents as John Burt and Rebecca Bovaird, which I estimate as born between 1840-1858. If anyone is familiar with this area, or the WWI monument, I would be most appreciative if you could enlighten me. Thank you. Ken Burt
