Cosma's Roman Catholic Cemetery near Punxatawney in Jefferson County,

- BUTTERS, HOLDEN,
WEISS posted by Brian
Butters on Monday, March 22, 1999
- I have found my great grandfather on the 1920 Federal Census for
Washington Twp, Jefferson Co., PA, and in the 1910 Federal Census for
Clearfield Co., PA, but can find nothing prior to that. Prior to
locating these entries, I had thought his children were all born in
McKean Co (they did end up there by the 1930s) but all 9 children were
born by the time the 1920 census was taken (and 4 had already been born
by the time of the 1910 census).
My great grandfather's name was Franklin W. BUTTERS, b. Abt 1877, d.
1938; married about 1901 to Rachael (I believe her maiden name was
WEISS/WISE), b. Abt 1881, d. 1962.
Possible that Frank's mother's maiden name was Mary HOLDEN. Family
history says that Frank emigrated to the US from England with his
parents when he was 12 and that his father died at sea during the
journey. However, according to the 1920 census information, Frank and
both of his parents were born in PA (according to the 1910 census, his
father was born in NY). Any information or possible connections would be
