Funeral services will be conducted at the Welshans home at 224 East Clinton Street tomorrow afternoon at 2.30 o'clock in charge of Dr. J. E. A. Bucke and burial will be made in Highland Cemetery.”
My connection is with the HAMBERGER family.Hannah is the daughter of Joseph F. and Bertha "Patty" (FENDRICH) HAMBERGER who both came to America from Baden, Germany and married in America (Joseph from the village of Herbolzheim and Bertha from Allfeld)in the 1850's. (Source: Catholic Church Records FHL INTL Film#1049349 & St. Agnes Cem. tombstone dates in Allison Twp., Clinton Co., PA).
Hannah's mother, Bertha (FENDRICH) HAMBERGER, died 1 March 1924 in Lock Haven (Death Certificate).I have been trying to find a photo of Bertha.Maybe one of the descendants has one.
