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:

Please let me know if you were requesting a photo of her grave marker, because I was able to locate it @ Woodmere & I wanted to let the correct "Bill Daugherty" know (there are 4 in findagrave). Thanks

RE: Mgt Op den Graeff and Thomas Howe Burials
Bill -
Augustus Evangelical Lutheran Church and Trappe Evangelical Lutheran Church are the same.
The church across the street is Trappe Evangelical Congregational Church.
It IS confusing!

Good Morning Bill!
Much debate is going on at present as to the location of Margaret / Thomas' burial location.

Muhlenberg says they are buried in Augustus...but you say Evangelical Congregational Church across the street.

PLEASE share with me where you got your information as this might just prove where the original Reformed Cemetery was !!!

Let's have you add them. That way we won't have to transfer ownership later.
