I would like to add the real names to two burials at the Mountain Lake Cemetery, Burlington Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. I have included the research done through your wonderful site.
Pierce, Elsie C.
- (Whitehead) 1st wife of H. Wayne
Pierce, Frankie R. - (Ross) 2nd wife of H. Wayne
Pierce, Henry Richard - son of H. Wayne
While researching the David A. Ross family, I found the following newspaper clipping:
Mr. and Mrs. Harry LOSEY and little daughter, Agnes, are visiting their parents, Mr. and Mrs. D. A. ROSS.
In 1920 in Elmira, Chemung County, NY, L. Harry and Frances LOSEY were living with his parents and their two daughters Agnes and Clara.
I found Clara LOSEY with her mother and second husband H. Wayne PIERCE in the 1930 Burlington Census. Looking further, I found the wedding announcement of his first marriage in the Troy Register of Thursday, 03/31/1904 as follows:
Mr. H. Wayne PIERCE of Burlington and Miss Elsie WHITEHEAD of Mountain Lake, were united in marriage Wednesday evening at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Whitehead by the Rev. W. P. Miller, pastor of the M. E. church in Burlington. The bride was attended by Miss Katherine Vroman, and Mr. Howard Whitehead, a brother of the bride, acted as best man, and little Miss Ruth Rose as flower girl. About 70 friends witnessed the ceremony and attended the reception afterward. Mr. Pierce is a son of Mrs. Marion Pierce. Both are well known around this vicinity.
The little Miss Ruth Rose could be Ruth ROSS his future second wife’s younger sister who would have been 6 years old at the time. Just a thought as they did all live in Burlington.
Thanks again for all you hard work.
