Baumgardners - Frank & Frank, Fred & Fred

Karl Friedline wrote to point out a couple of errors (these folks are his wife's uncles)

Bessie B Ream was married to Frank Baumgardner, 1888-1971, son of Ananias Baumgardner and Amanda Weaver. I had Bessie married to Frank H Baumgarder 1891-1962, son of Henry Baumgardner & Sarah Jane Kring. Frank H was married to Anna Mae Stewart.

Also, Mary Mickel 1908-1955 of Windber was married to Fred D Baumgardner as early as 1941, when her sister Ruth's obit says they were living in Elton. I had linked this Fred as a son of the same Henry Baumgardner & Sarah Jane Kring, but their son Fred 1904-1983 was married to Nora Ellen Geiyer 1904-1987, and were living in State College in the 1930 census. I still don't know who the second Fred is, but I'm working on it.

It's Cold, Damn Cold

In case you haven't heard, Global Warming has hit western Pa, as there's been one day above freezing in the past four weeks, and it's snowed just about every day. Like I remember it as a kid.
So, I've spent a lot of time locked in my room doing work from home, which neglects my genealogy, but does pay better!
I took this pic last week of the Loyalhanna River east of the Bedford. The unusual thing was the blue sky.
