We just returned from two weeks in Clearfield and Jefferson counties researching the BEAM/RICHARDS family...had a wonderful trip...fall color was lovely! But, even more importantly the citizens were great...from the courthouses to the historical societies to the cemeteries to strangers who lived nearby. We filled so many gaps, yet still have a major unanswered question...where did Henry BEAM, his wife Nancy RICHARDS and their 12 children move from when they moved to Clearfield County (Morris (later carved into Cooper) Township) in 1832 to 1836?

Suzanne Where is Wallaceton in Clearfield County. I have been searching for more information on Levi Davis and Clarissa Davis. Levi was her father. He (Levi) married a Kephart and Clarissa married Joseph Kephart. Clarissa and Joseph were my great grandparents. I have reached a wall where Clarissa and Levi are concerned. Somewhere, somehow, there has to be a connection to other Davis' in Clearfield County. What I know is that Clarissa and parents were living in Decatur Township, Osceola Mills during the 1850 census. But I have no idea where Levi may have been born or who his parents were, etc. Any information you may have could prove helpful. Thanks in advance. I am sorry, but I know nothing about Kramers. I do have a little bit on Davis, but not much. I'll look through my records and see if I find any Kramers. Do you have any other line that they were connected to? .

When Ivan Kramer married Elva. I am waiting for information on her sister Cora. Through the Social Security Index. She was a school teacher and never married so she was found easy enough.

BOWSER, KUNTZ, MCANINCH posted by Lorna Gilbert on Saturday, November 27, 1999

Seeking McANINCH, BOWSER, KUNTZ in Clearfield County; have just viewed transcript for Mt Carmel Cemetary, Bell Twp., Clearfield County, and see NETTIE KUNTZ 1894-1950; ANNIE McANINCH, 1870-1953; and JAMES McANINCH, 1874-1952; would like to know more about them and how they fit into my line. Looking for descendants of HENRY McANINCH, b. 1801 PA, married ELIZABETH BOWSER, b. 1804, PA; they migrated from PA to MO and then to IOWA and had children NELSON, GEORGE, PETER (my great-grandfather)SUSAN and NANCY McANINCH, all b. PA; I also believe they had several more children who were grown and stayed in PA when they went west. I believe one of these children is LAVINA McANINCH KUNTZ, who would have been born around 1840 or earlier; so the Clearfield County NETTIE KUNTZ is most intriguiging. My grandfather, JAMES HENRY McANINCH b. 1877 (not the same James buried in Clearfield County) had a sister VINETTA McANINCH, called NETTIE McANINCH, who was named after his aunt LAVINA Mc! ANINCH KUNTZ; thus NETTIE KUNTZ is a family name, though the one buried in Clearfield County is not the same person as the Iowa NETTIE. Will share all I have on these families, and hope someone can add more..
