I'm not sure how I came to have these two obituaries of Fred A. Brockway. I have no record of him in my RootsMagic, but then there is a lot of data on my paper family group sheets for the Brockway family that has never been entered into the computer. Several Ancestry Trees indicate this Fred A. Brockway is the son of Andrew S. and Jennie A. (Bristol) Brockway. If the ancestral lines are correct, there is a good chance he is a distant cousin.
