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:

Hi Bill - It's been a couple of years since I've had time to work on my family history. I am excited to involved again. I happened to see my grandparents "find-a-grave" information and I ended up spending 8 hours a few days ago - trying to find the location of their burial. It really bugs me that I don't know where they are.

Unfortunately there is no one that I know of, living that would know. I have my grandmother's death certificate (Ida's) and it says that her body was "removed" to Jamaica, New York. I have e-mailed and called most of the cemeteries in that area and have not had any luck. I've searched newspapers looking for an obit for my grandfather.

Did you have some information from someone that they were not buried anywhere? I'm on a mission to find them!! Wish me luck!

RE: Herr's in Cave Hill
I wanted you search the Herr's to see if any of the names were familiar to you. I did find Elizabeth "Bessie" Herr Ramsay and her husband John Mood Ramsey and I got and entered their pictures today. I hope they were who you were looking for. I just wasn't finding them with the name "Herr". Maybe it has fixed itself.

Herr's in Cave Hill
Go to and on the home page type in the surname and click 'cemeteries' and a list of all Herrs in Cave Hill will come up. I am not finding Elizabeth "Bessie" or her husband John in Cave Hill. Could they be in the Herr Cemetery?

RE: Henry Milton Wilson Photo
Greetings Bill,

It is my pleasure to help you by taking these pictures. I have had many people help me, so it's only fair that I pay it forward. Don't worry about making a photo request for Esther, I already added a photo.
