Hi Sarah

Well I did some looking for you for Florence Covert and I don't have her in any trees of mine so far.

Do you know if she had siblings and what their names were?
We could try looking for them and maybe find her parents in the census's.

What I did do was go to
and found the marriage license for Flo and Robert

I searched and searched for a Arnsy or Lizzy Covert in the 1880 census since Flo would be abt 8 going on the marriage info for her yr of birth and couldn't find one Arnsy Covert anywhere... no idea what his real name is either might be spelt the way it was heard don't know. Couldn't even find Flo in it either so either the surname is misspelled and its going to take a good dig to find her and parents.

All the census's info on Flo says she was br in Pa and both parents were also. be careful of census info as it is sometimes wrong people lie on it especially women as to their ages even on marriage info they will lie... and sometimes the person giving the info just might not know so they put what they think it correct.

You might try posting to the Covert surname messages boards and also the Butler Co Message board about the info in the marriage record found on her parents names.


I found both obits for Flo and Robert at the Butler library Obit data base at this website

On the left of the page is list of things they have go to the obit index put in their names and print out the info that pops up then you can either call the library and ask for the genealogy dept and ask them to send you the obits
Flo's might tell her parents names.

I have been years trying to find my Elza Ann Covert's parents and so far its all been a brick wall for me but still I try to get her in the correct Covert family.

I will be glad to help you if you want me to but first get the obits to see if they tell you Flo's parents names please
