Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi Y'all. I'm a Central Pennsylvania native living in Eastern Georgia. I'm tracking down and documenting family names including Daugherty, Sprunger, Amstutz, Updegraff (and its variations Updegrave, Uptagrafft, Updegrove, etc.). I'm also interested in family names Antes, Bixler, Bressler, Coffee, Ferree, Gillinger, Habegger, Herr, Kendig, Logan, Pennington, Rothlischberger, Williams.

I'm part of the great Pennsylvania melting pot, a descendant of Scotch-Irish, Swiss Mennonite, French Huguenots, Moravians, English, German, and Welsh ancestors. The "huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

I'm also looking for my wife's family including Devaney, Hayman, Holley, Leffler, Ricketson, Robertson, Seiter, Street, Tuemler, Williams.

I'm trying to photograph as much as possible, and create an accurate, historical record. I'll be glad to transfer non-family members. I've enjoyed getting to know my extended family members through Findagrave.

Please visit my famous relatives:

Rev Hans Herr, Jr, Swiss Mennonite Bishop, 8th Great-Grandfather. (Herr)

Updegrove Book
I have that same book, Bill. Nice to meet a cousin. I guess I had the wrong brother in mind as my ancestor. You are correct. It was Isaac. I wish I had been at the cemetery the day you were here. I am out there almost every day in the seasons without snow. Sorry I missed you.

Sutcliffe Memorials #120059084 & #120059001
Hello Bill,

It does look like these two memorials are duplicates. Should one of them be deleted and the other one kept? Also what will the corrections you suggested do to correct this problem? We'll still have duplicate memorials. I'm not sure how this happened. I believe I'm distantly related to this person. I think Find A Grave Memorial# 120059001 should be kept since it appears to have more up to date information. Can I accept your suggestions and then just delete Find A Grave Memorial# 120059084 without loosing any information?

Updegrove
Hi, Bill, I am an Updegrove from Van Wert, Ohio. The last in this area to have carried the name. I am the daughter of Robert and Thelma Updegrove, grand-daughter of Glenn Shelby and Arminda May Updegrove, great grand-daughter of Harrison and Sarah, and so forth and so on back to Abraham, who came over on the Concord with William Pastorius. I appreciate you maintaining memorials to some of my family. My only sibling, Jane Ann, died of a blood clot from a head trauma caused by a baseball (actually a softball) hitting her in the temple as she was walking down the street where we lived. I have the news article and will send it to you as soon as I find it. Hope to get to know you better. I am just getting started on Find a Grave. I live right down the street from the cemetery so I am out there often.
