I am trying to find more information on a Ghrist line in Pennsylvania around the Pittsburgh area.
I have a Howard Elmer Ghrist whose first wife was Flora Mae Snyder (she had a twin named Laura). Flora died in 1921 of Tuberculosis (commonly called "Consumption" back in that time).
Flora and Howard had children together. Some of the children's names are:
James (b. 1914 in Brushton, Pa),
Elmer (b. 1910),
Robert (b. 1912),
and possibly a baby named Jane? that died as an infant. One of the boys had a nickname of Irv.
After Flora died, Howard married another woman. I may be wrong, but I believe her name was Ida (maiden name unknown).
Does anyone have any info on any of these people?
