I am trying to find the parents of Frank X. Bayer. According to his death certificate, he was born in New Jersey on 10/22/1867 to John Bayer and Cynthia Chalmers.
Frank Bayer married Salome Kinder in 1900 in Pennsylvania and they settled in Dubois/Falls Creek, PA. He died on May 13, 1956.
I have had no luck finding John Bayer or Cynthia Chalmers Bayer. The 1940 census for Frank Bayer says that his mother and father were born in New Jersey. The earliest census I could find of Frank was in 1910 in Washington, Jefferson, Pennsylvania.
There is a family story that Frank may have been adopted, but we are not sure.
If anyone can help find Frank prior to 1910 and possibly his parents, it would be very much appreciated!!
