Hello, just today I was sent a copy of your obit for Mrs. Willis
Bole. In it is mentioned sister Lesta Perts. Lesta married the
widower of Amanda Moore Perts of Westmoreland Co. who died in 1921.
They were separated some years, however. They had either 7 or 8
children...the last may have been a grandchild.
Amanda Moore was my grandfather's first cousin and I've been trying
to locate more information on Robert Paul Perts who died in "1938" in
Pittsburgh. I don't have any more information on Lesta, whether she
remarried or not. I do see a better marriage date now. Between 1921
and 1927, the date for your obit.
Would you please respond to my email and let me know if you have
anything more on Robert and Lesta Perts?

In 1920 Clarion Co., PA Willis, his wife Theresa, and daughter
Dorothy lived together.
I don't carry the research any further.
I didn't type the 1927 obit into my notes. It was published in
Bethelem, PA. One child was named -- Dorothy A. Bole, born about
1906 in Clarion Co., PA, who married Fred Wilson. Theresa Bole may
have lived with her daughter when she died in 1927.
BTW, there is an obit for a second Theresa Bole in genealogy.bank.
She died recently in Mass.
