About Wendell Paul Ossler

  1. Birth: 16 OCT 1900 in Kane, McKean County, PA 2
  2. Baptism: 19 MAY 1902 St. Gertrude Church, Vandergrift, Westmoreland Co. PA
  3. Note:
   Birth certificate found at Westmorland County Courthouse in Greensburg, PA originally by Richard A. Newhouse 4/16/2004.
   Confirmed by Mary Beth Kernan 4/23/2004: Westmoreland County Birth Records, Volume 4, page, 235:
   "Wendell Ossler, male, white. Father J.J. Ossler Mother: Emma Ossler Residence: Longfellow Street.
   Father's occupation: Laborer Date of Birth: October 16, 1900 Place of Birth: Kane Co Date of record: December 03, 1901"
   Baptism record located at St. Gertrude Church, Vandergrift, Westmoreland County, PA: Baptism record Vol. I, page 75:
   Date of Baptism: 5/19/1902 (3 days after Emma died) Name: Wendell Paul Ossler. "Natum in Brookville, fil legit Jacob J. Ossler Brookville et Emma Newhouse Clarion Co"
   Two other names appear as either witnesses, sponsors or, perhaps, adoptive parents: It appears to be Patricia Henrietta Overheiser? Brookville et Joseph Staas? Heights. The woman's name could also be Harriett Overheim, the child's aunt. The priest's name appears to be P. Martin.
   Nothing more is known of this child. Perhaps he was adopted out of the family at the time of his baptism or perhaps he was placed in an orphanage for infants.
