Floyd Kimmy died in Kent, Portage county, Ohio in 1935 (but was
buried back in PA). Floyd was born in Crawford county Pa. As far as
I know, he lived there all of his life. I therefore assume that he
was just visiting possible relitives (in Ohio)at the time of his
expiration. If anyone knows about Kimmy's living in this area, I
would like to hear from you.
