Albert was my great-grandfather and his daughter, listed here as Mrs. Geo. Nicholson, my grandmother.
Sadly Alberts wife Catherine died just 6 weeks later on Dec.3, 1931
Albert's tombstone has his name as Alvin H. Boyd and on his obit it is Albert. Possibly he was known by different names by different family members.
Albert and Catherine are both buried in the Bethel Lutheran Church Cemetery in Ford City, Pa.

How often do you see a Presby minister doing services at another denominations church? Everyone working together back in the early-mid 1900's? Don't you love history?
