Who raised Charles Williams in PA?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Williams, Savage, Strunk
My great-grandfather, Charles Williams, b 13 Jan 1850 "in PA," married Alafretta Savage in 1876 in Black Hawk Co., IA. They moved to Plymouth/Woodbury Co., IA, in the 1880s. He reported on an IA census that his father, Charles, and mother, Susan Strant, were born in PA and married in Parker Ford, Chester Co. A family Bible says Charles was raised by 2 aunts. I can't confirm any of this info ... no birth location, no middle initial, can't find any marriage records. Who raised Charles Williams??????

Have you ordered his death cert to see if parents' names listed and match names on state census?

I can not find anything else. This is not my family.

I had found all this info, but can't find where Charles was born. I keep looking in Chester Co., since he reported on an IA census that his parents were married in Parkerford. I went to the Woodbury Co. Courthouse in Sioux City, IA, to get a copy of his death record, but that one year's book was missing out of all the years and years they had. I'll have to try to order one from the state of Iowa, tho' Woodbury Co. wasn't sure the state has the book.
Thanks for your info!
