Update, 2 Mar 2014

I have found Nancy in the 1917 Punxsutawney City Directory, 520 West Mahoning St., listed as Nancy M. Kroh, widow of Jacob. I had read somewhere before that she had been married to a Jacob Kroh; but, could not find anything to substantiate this.

I also sent for her Death Certificate. It lists her as Nancy M. "Kroah". Death 10 Jul 1917, Punxsutawney, Jefferson Co., Pennsylvania. Father, Andrew Moore. Place of burial, Hamilton, PA.

Update, 11 Mar 2014

Nancy Married Jacob Kroh 8 Aug 1872. He was born in 1801 and died in 1877.

On 20 Apr 1880, she married William Gaul. Therefore, her death certificate should have listed her as Nancy M. Gaul.

Notes

Note
The area was originally settled by the Delaware Indians, and the name "Punxsutawney" derives from a Native American term which translates to "town of the sandflies" ‎(or, perhaps, "town of the mosquitoes"[2]‎). The name of the borough is also said to come from the Unami-Len'api term Put'schisk'tey, which means "poison vine."‎[3]‎

In 1907, Punxsutawney and Claysville boroughs were consolidated and incorporated as Greater Punxsutawney. A high-grade soft coal was mined in the surrounding region. Formerly, the factories included glassworks, foundries, ironworks, machine shops, and planing, flour, feed, and silk mills. In 1900, 6,746 people lived there; in 1910, 9,058; in 1920, 10,311; and in 1940, 9,482 people lived there. The population was 5,962 at the 2010 census.

Punxsutawney's most famous resident is Punxsutawney Phil, a groundhog said to predict the weather annually on Groundhog Day ‎(February 2)‎. Phil and the town were the basis for the 1993 film Groundhog Day ‎(although nearly all of the film was shot in Woodstock, Illinois)‎.

The T. M. Kurtz House, Jefferson Theater, Christian Miller House, and United States Post Office-Punxsutawney are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.‎[4]‎
