My mother's maiden name is Cluse, and she grew up in New Castle PA. Until recently we knew very little about her father's family.I think that my gg grandfather (George Cluse: 1843-1903)may have been Barbara Anne Cluse's sister or possibly her uncle. (its confusing, because names are continuallly reused!)I have George Cluse's obituary and it mentions that he was born in Butler County (Brady's Bend PA) and had four sisters and a brother. . . they are:Mrs. Mary Schweikert, Mrs. Mary Young, Mrs. Mary Lawrence, Philip Cluse, and Mrs. Barbara Guenther of Charleston, West Virginia.
I know that you mentioned that Barbara Ann Cluse was the daughter of a Philip Cluse, so she could be my gggrandfather's sister (I think George Cluse's father might have been a philip cluse, although I'm not sure) or she could be the child of my gggrandfather's brother.
