Hettie E Bower PA Info Request

Since I had such an unbelievably incredible response to my first post on the site I though I would try my luck again with another roadblock.

I am looking for information on Hettie E. Bower.

Here is what I know. She was born in PA in 1882/3 and died in 1910.  She is burried in the Martzville PA cemetary.  I found a church registry prooving she married Daniel Raymond Keifer on 22 May 1902 in Columbia County PA.  She died young and the children went to an orphanage in PA (don't know which one).  The boys, Hower and Hurley, ran away to Indiana to join their father.  One of the girls stayed at the orphanage and another was adopted out.   I have only been able to find a few references to her and nothing firm on her family.  The few very fuzzy leads I did find all took me to dead ends.  Potential parents and siblings all seem to drop off the face of the planet.

Any info/links to info on her family heritage are greatly appreciated and thank you in advance for your help.
