Chidister/Reiff Families Pennsylvania

Harry G. Reiff married Hilda(not sure if this reallyl is the name, no one is sure and no last name is even hinted at in records). They had 3 children, Harry, Thomas and a daughter. Records indicate mother and daughter died of "the fever". Harry G. could not take care of his two sons on his own so he sent Thomas to live with another family with the last name Chidister. Thomas eventually changed his last name to Chidister. Some records show his adopted (not sure if legally) parents were William and Emma. Harry G. had a sister named Emma and we are trying to determine if Thomas' aunt Emma married a Chidister and became his guardian or if the name Emma is just coincidental. We are also trying to find out Thomas' birth mother's name.

Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.
