Re: Durst family of Clearfield, PA area

In Reply to: Durst family of Clearfield, PA area by Carla Hornibrook of 407

Hi,

Hazel Durst is my great great grandma. She married Fred Wilson (who I have found to be born around 1887) and had 2 children (that I know of) Barbara Alice (b. 11 May 1918 d. 15 Feb 2005, my great grandma) and Maxwell V. (who my grandma referred to as "Vern") who was born around 1926. I don't know anything about him, I found that info on the 1930 census.

Hazel's mother's name was Coralie Mokel or Mokal born aound 1861 in PA. She's the daughter of Daniel E. (b. 1832)and Elsie J. (b. 1827) Mokel. Her siblings were Elfrida, Leona, George, Horatio and Olivia. All of that info I found in the 1880 Clearfield census.

Now I'm not sure but I think William Durst may have been the son of William Durst and Mahala Broadwater both born in Maryland. I'm still trying to figure all that out. Everything I found out so far has pretty much come from searching the census on this site.

I hope I was somewhat helpful. You were very helpful to me I couldn't find Fred Wilson's parents' names anywhere. Please let me know if you find anymore info on the Durst family.
