Do you happen to have a copy of the record or perhaps a newspaper clipping? I understand the announcement may have been printed in the Clinton Democrate or the Renovo Record.

My great grand father Harry H. Hunter was born in North Bend, Clinton Co, PA and he states that his father was "Eligh Hunter". Eligh/Elijah would have been born abt. 1855 as he was 26 when Harry was born in 1881 to Catherine A. Campbell Hunter.

Catherine and Elijah likely married in 1880 or early 1881 as I have found Elijah (Elijh) on 1880 Census for Chapman Township (wherein North Bend is located), Clinton Co., PA listed as a single boarder, laborer living in the same home as a "Kate Dewitt", 33, married, servant. She has a son "Irvin" who would have been born around 1875 and I have records that show my great grandfather Harry had a brother, Irvin, born in 1875.

I'm wondering if this is the same Elijah that married Anna in 1880, the marriage didn't last long - months perhaps. Though I have not found a marriage record pinning Elijah and Catherine's date.

In the 1900 census, Catherine is listed as a widow so Elijah was dead by then.

I have been focused on Cammal, looks like I need to move my focus westward a bit on North Bend.
