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)

RE: Issack Gyori Photo
Pleased to help you!

Are you really related to Elvis? Even if it only tenth cousins, that is something to remember.

All the best,

Glad you liked the photo. Hopefully I can find some of your other Herrs in West Laurel Hill in the future.

RE: Barr Photos
Hi -

Just uploaded it. Is her name maiden name Barr? If so, you might want to add Barr to the maiden name input. Just a suggestion.

Have a great day!

RE: Abraham Herr Photo
You're welcome. Abraham is buried in Old Yellow Creek Cemetery. I asked that his memorial be moved. No response so decided to add the photo anyway.

Barr Photos

I uploaded the Barr photo you requested and also photos for any other family members that were in the plot and had memorials.

There were three stones that were in the plot that didn't have corresponding memorials on Find-A-Grave. They are:

Anna Barr Reed
Sep. 3, 1973
June 11, 1952

Mary G. Barr
Jan 5, 1871
May 21, 1952

Grace E. Barr
Jan 18, 1878
Aug 13, 1947

I have the photos and would be glad to upload them if you would make the memorials.

Hi Bill,

Its taken me this long to see that the Rely To link was under your name!!

Yes, if you wouldn't mind transferring that to me, I would appreciate it :-) I have to write a biography for them, they were incredibly interesting people :-)
