Clifford W Welder 1986 obit – Penn


The number thirteen (13) may be unlucky for some, but not for this family tree story.

I found an obit for Clifford W Welder, in a 1986 Reading, Pennsylvania, newspaper. I took a screen print of the obit and created a tree to hold it. I named the tree: Clifford W Welder obit Aug 1986 – Penn – Family Tree, so that I would have useful information in the family tree name.


After putting some information on the tree, I started getting hints and other names and dates. I was then able to find twelve (12) other items for this family tree.

So a total of thirteen (13) items.



I don’t know the sequence of my finds but here is the list:


Double Birthday: Carl w. Shaffer and sister: Mrs. William Woomert, children of Lewis Shaffer


Death: Mrs. Thelma Woomert – Her husband Allen died in March of this year (1951)


Obit: Adam W Sands


Obit: Allen E Woomert


Obit: Annie (Albright) – Mrs. William H Sands


Obit: Mrs. Edna E. (Scholl) Woomert


Obit: Fannie (nee Booser), Mrs. William Woomert


Obit: Melissa (Rhoads) Sands


Obit: Naomi M. (Woomert) – Mrs. Earl D. Wunder


Obit: William H Sands

The links for the items will be listed at the bottom of this post, so that you can see the original newspaper items.

I hope this post will give you some good information and perhaps even list one of your family members.

Thank You.
