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:

Florence Thomas (1903-1903) at Grandview
Florence's grave was unmarked, but I did find two other infants on that plot:

Alice Maud #157510276
Elizabeth #157510545

Elizabeth's stone is very worn. If it wasn't so snowy out and bitter cold, I would've been able to get a rubbing of her stone and had dates for you. Maybe when the weather gets nicer.

RE: Harry Bressler
Thanks Bill. I found the Find A Grave link and yes agree her middle name was Melissa. She only lived until 1949 and it appears they had no children.

You're very welcome for the transfer, glad to see it go to a family member (he's no relation to me). I probably happened upon his grave and photographed/memorialized because he was a war vet; I'll usually do the same for their spouse if they are buried with them. For some reason I didn't in this case, I went back and checked and she was there, so I created a memorial for Caroline Klotozbach Frantz and transferred to you. If you put in a photo request, I'll see if I can go by Evergreen sometime soon (it's my favorite cemetery).

Best regards,

Henry Martin Photo Request

I just fulfilled your request of Henry Martin. His name was actually Harry as can be seen from the photo of his gravestone. He had a son, Henry, also buried in this plot. I have posted an edit request to change the name to Harry and to link his son, Henry to Harry and Catharine Martin.

Farley Photo Requests

Time is about to expire on the Farley requests. Morning sun is necessary to get a readable inscription and we have been under clouds for two weeks. I will get better photos if the sun ever shines again and send you a message when the photos are uploaded.--Storres
