KIMMY posted by Georgina on Tuesday, August 29, 2000

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.
