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:

Good catch. You were right. John was his brother. I have made the corrections to mother and father. Thanks.

Hello,

You are very welcome for the photo. I was glad to do it.

I just happened to see her gravemarker while looking for someone else nearby.

Bill,

You are welcome. We were fortunate to get them before the bad weather arrived. Please note that the Gearharts and McCormicks are on the same monument.--Storres

RE: Arvid Herr
Thank you. I have an obituary for him, but it is way too long to summarize--2 columns, about 12 paragraphs. Thursday, August 5, 1999 in the Aberdeen Daily News, Page: 6
