Tombstone Tuesday - Milton Turnbach

Time to get some more information that I've got lying around and attach it to someone in my tree. I look forward to having more time to do this when we get settled into our new home, but we're genealogists.  We do what we can, when we can, and I've got a little time right now as babysit my great niece and she naps peacefully in the next room.

Milton Turnbach was born in 1899.  He was the oldest of 8 known children born to Abraham and Mary Turnbach nee Blanchfield:  Milton, William, Robert, Mary, 2 unknown (either died young or were stillborn), Elizabeth, and Anna.

I don't know if Milton married or had children, but with a death date from the Social Security Death Index I can grab his obituary when I get back to Pennsylvania.  Oh how essential that database is to genealogists!

Milton was my first cousin twice removed and he died on November 23, 1988.  He is buried in St. Mary's Cemetery, Beaver Meadows, Pennsylvania.  Rest in peace, Milton.
