Many of the family members are buried in St. Bernards Cemetery in Hastings, PA. Only John is buried in Tennessee and Paul is buried near Pittsburgh. All others are near each other in Hastings...most in Bobal Family plot. John and Anna Bobal, possibly from Czechia, Moravia, or Slovakia arrived originally in Fayette, PA in the early 1890s, with one son who later died. They later moved to Hastings.
