“Beulah Mae Carringer, The Pittsburgh [Penn.] Press newspaper, obituary, Tuesday, 2July 1968, web page 33, column 4, Beulah Mae Carringer obituary;   ( : accessed 12 July 2021).

This obituary offers a loss of life date and place, an age, her son’s and siblings’ names, and a few details about employment and associations.

Beulah Mae Flick was born 28 Could 1888 in Toby, Clarion county, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Harry Belle and Eva Mae (Barr) Flick.  She died 1 July 1968 in Rimersburg, Clarion County, Pennsylvania. Beulah married Albert Miller Carringer (1880-1952) on 30 June 1910 in Rimersburg.  They’d two kids:

*  Albert Vincent Carringer (1911-1970), married 1937 Marcella Elizabeth Stein (1916-1995).
*  Thelma Bell Carringer (1913-1913).

I’m a second cousin two occasions eliminated to Albert Miller Carringer.  Our frequent ancestors are my 4th great-grandparents Martin Carringer (1758-1835) and Maria Magdalena Hoax (1768-1851). 

There are a whole bunch of Carringer “tales” in my household tree – and this was one in every of them.   Life occurs, unintentionally and deliberately, and generally an individual has a well-written obituary that lists her associations and relations.  I’m glad that I can honor Beulah Mae (Flick) Carringer at present.  

You by no means know when a descendant or relative will discover this weblog submit and study one thing about their ancestors or kin, or will present extra details about them to me.
