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:

RE: Edits Tab
Thanks so much for all of the information!!

So exciting to add more to the family tree! I am just getting started with all of this but do have some information that Della Ruth Skates compiled back in the late 90s. I will look at the info to see what else I can add to any missing links.

Pleasure meeting you! Kind regards from Logan, Ohio! Michelle

Daugherty Cemetery - Kentucky

I have photographed Daugherty Cemetery. Unfortunately, the cemetery is out in the middle of almost nowhere and a fenced enclosure in the middle of a cow pasture and no one is taking care of it so there is a lot of growth and the only lawn mowing is done by a few cows. :( I was only able to find a few headstones, some covered by plants and weeds. I did not bring any weed cutters so my fingers and feet did their best. I wanted to let you know the condition of the place - however, it has a very large stone with the Nicholas family tree on it, the first I have ever see like that in any cemetery. If you would like I can send you my so-so images of it via email. I will add the pics over the next few days - but now it is off to yard chores.

Hi Bill,

You are very welcome. Guess by now you have seen that the photo you requested for Arlene has been posted. Have a great holiday weekend.

You were correct that the name on the memorial was spelled incorrectly. Just wanted to let you know I sent an edit to take out the extra T.

RE: Updegraff Photos
Hi Bill,

You're welcome. Glad we could be of assistance in finding and photographing the Updegraff markers.

You requested a photo of Arlene Updegraff's marker. Was wondering if you know whether or not she is deceased?? Her name appears on the marker with Earl but there are no dates for her. Could it be that she is still living?? I looked for an obit for her but found none. Will post the photo we have of the marker on her memorial if you want me to. Let me know.
