These obituaries were provided to Korns.org by Andy Petenbrink. From the names of the surviving siblings in the Joseph Korns obitiuary, it is clear that it relates to the son of Daniel Korns and his wife Caroline (Tressler) Korns. From the name "Clair" in both obituaries, and the lack of mention of children in either obituary, I speculate that the Elizabeth mentioned in the second obituary was the wife of Joseph H. Korns. Joseph is listed on page 82 of the 1949 book "The Genealogy of Michael Korns, Sr. of Somerset County Pennsylvania" as the son of Daniel Korns, Jr., and in that book, Joseph's wife is listed as "Elizabeth Blair", and it is said that Joseph and Elizabeth had no children. I am speculating that "Blair" is a misprint in that book, and it should have been "Clair". If anyone can make better sense of this information, please let korns.org know.
Page 6 of Roger and Mona Huffman's 2007 book "A Look At Southampton Township Pennsylvania", Volume II indicates that Joseph Korns of Scottsdale died on March 11, 1909. The information was credited to clippings collected by Charles Burkett and Stella (Emerick) Shroyer.
