Hello -
I'm new to this forum..trying to do some genealogy research for my husband, Jerome S. Boak. His father,
o Ulysses Grant Boak, II lived in Washington County, PA (Venice Twnshp.)
o Ulyssess G. II was the youngest of 4 sons born to Ulysses G. Boak (of Rochester, PA)& Charlotte Bell(Toy)Boak:
Roger Earl - b. June 1891
Gordon E. - b. June 1893
Clyde Jules - b. May 1896
Ulysses G. Boak II - b. May 1908
o His great-grandparents were Robert James Boak (of Rochester, PA) & grandmother, Rebecca Kittridge. Robert James Boak was a veteran of the Civil War & was in the oil business. (I got this information from an obituary) I'm confused because according to the Armstrong Co., PA Census of 1870, Robert James Boak married a Sarah Anna (Unknown). They had 2 male children: Grant, age 2 & Francis, age 7 months. Could this be the same Robert James Boak or were there 2 in PA at that time? Possibly he was married twice?
If there is anyone out there who can help me fit this all together, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
