I see no one has replied to your question and I don't have all the answers,
here are rural route box numbers, but generally PO Box means that the owner
picks up his/her mail at the post office. If they owned their home the
court house would have deeds created at the time they purchased the property
and when it was sold. These would have precise descriptions of the
Then, as now, Milford is a very attractive town, and there are many retirees
living there, especially from New York and New Jersey. I see the name
Arndts in Pennsylvania from an early date, so there may also have been a
family connection. I see also (on the SSDI) that Leonie died in Clarks
Summit, which is in Lackawanna County. If she was still living in Milford
at the time of her death, her death certificate should give their address,
but if she had moved to Lackawanna County (nursing home, for example), of
course, the address on the certificate would be there.
She may well have left a will. If it was filed in Pike County there would
be a copy at the court house and it would probably contain her address.
Finally, if there are tax records (and there probably are), they might
contain the address.

I have a relative who stated on their soc sec application that she lived at
PO Box 191, Milford, PA.Is there a map that will tell me what street this
address resides today? Her name was Leoni Arndts. She and husband William
lived in Roselle Park,NJ until 1946 when they moved to Milford in their
60's. What was the appeal of Milford to them?
