Hello and Happy New Year to all; I realize this query is a little old, but I wanted to briefly chime in with what I just discovered, namely that J. Clyde Fosnot's wife was Sarah "Sadie" Dewald, daughter of Calvin & Mary (Baysor) Dewald, of the Muncy area.

Calvin's second marriage was to my great-great grandmother, Elizabeth (Raubenolt) Heffelfinger, thus my interest.

Not much to add at this point, but I am just looking at this family for the first time.
