This could be Pauline's death
Name:    Pauline Hummer
Death Date:    Sep 1967
Death Place:    Phillipsburg, Warren, New Jersey, USA


According to the New Jersey death index, this Pauline Hummer died in Phillipsburg (2176), but her residence was Pennsylvania (9137). This seems to fit known information.

Thanks to everyone for their help.
I am now in the position where I have Clarence L Hummer, married Pauline Smith circa late 1942.
In 1962 in her father's obituary mention is made of daughter "Mrs, Pauline Hummer, Riegelsville". In 1967 Pauline dies:-
Pauline S. Hummer
Death Date:   sep 1967
Cemetery:   Fairmount Cemetery
Burial or Cremation Place:   Phillipsburg, Warren County (Warren), New Jersey, United States of America
So far, no obituary, no death (said by extended family to be suicide)  or marriage? Nothing is known abt her husband Clarence L Hummer. It is known there were no children from this marriage.

I also have Clarence Leroy Hummer born 1911 N.J, USA, died 1983 Easton Hospital, Pennsylvania. His obituary says his wife is Florence E Rodgers nee Fehr. There is mention of his step children. It says he is formerly of  Riegsville. He worked in Riegel paper company before retiring in 1975 after 32 years. Florence was widowed in 1969, so was free to remarry. I can't find this marriage either?

Now Pauline Smith, wife of Clarence (1) was first cousin once removed of Florence's first husband Hubert Fred Rodgers.

If only I could turn up a marriage ref for either, it would give me an age for Clarence (1), marital status ie bachelor/widow for Clarence (2).

What does anyone else think, the fact that there is a relationship through marriage & Riegsville comes up referring to Pauline and to Clarence (2)?

You could try a local library for an obituary for Pauline (Smith) Hummer, 1967. First choice would be the town in PA that she was living in when she died.
If the obit were online, someone here would have posted it by now, based on my couple years of being on rootschat. People are helpful that way.

I don't think you are going to be able to access her death record. NJ is strict on records. If she had died in Pennsylvania, it would be different, they are online.

The PA marriage records might be available, I don't know their rules for marriage records. Determine what county they married in, then contact that county.

There weren't a lot of Clarence L Hummers in the area, so they are probably the same person, but you never know.

The Allentown library has an obituary index online.  http://www.allentownpl.org/morning-call-obituary-index/  I didn't see anything for Pauline. 

It looks like Florence Rodgers Hummer died in Aug. 1990.  Her obituary lists her as the widow of Clarence L. Hummer & H. F. Rodgers.

Recent Pennsylvania marriages aren't typically online.  There are some links here, but most don't go into the 1960s.  https://www.genealogybranches.com/pennsylvania.html

Still struggling to confirm these two Clarence L Hummer's are one and same.
I am now in touch with a son of widow Florence, who he says married Clarence L Hummer in 1969, Easton, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. He knows nothing abt Clarence.

Now it has come to my attention that Clarence Leroy Hummer that married Florence was born in Phillipsburg, N.J.

Now Pauline Smith Hummer, wife of Clarence L Hummer, she died in Phillipsburg. That is something of a coincidence! So the marriage between Pauline Smith & Clarence L Hummer abt 1942, was probably Phillipsburg???????????

I just need something that clarifies that Clarence's dob or parents to confirm he is one and same as Clarence Leroy Hummer. Amazingly it isn't such a rare name as I thought.

Any help appreciated please.
