All seem to have been buried in Somerset Pa. Brothersvalley or Summit Township areas. I plan to look into this in the near future.

I have found that a number of the Holmes Country Ohio Brothers and Sisters moved on to Indiana. My father remembers visiting great-uncles in Indiana in the 1930's.

If I can help with any info I may have in may publications drop me a line.

Happy Hunting! 10/18/99
