Bio Photo I grew up in the Havover, Pa area, as a child I remember my mother searching hours on hours for family members and that was in the time before computers. Now that she has passed I am trying to continue the search. I want to thanks all of you who have helped me and transfered to me. I know all our time is precious and the more we help each other with our research the more we will know about our families.

Anyone with extra time, stop by mom and tell her Hi. #57105282 THANKS

Hi Cindy, I hate to bug you but I put in for some edits and just was hoping you could approve them. I'm trying to link as many of my step grandma's family together as I can. Thanks, Laura

Are you aware of any possible first marriage, which may have ended when her first husband was killed in Germany in 1944? I'm trying to tie together a bunch of loose ends, and that marriage would do it.

Are you related to the Mickley's in any way? I am always on Ebay searching family Bibles, and there is one right now that has John A Mickley and his mother Martha Mickley mentioned in it. I saw that you have a memeorial of a Mickeley and thought you might be interested Here is the link to the Bible.

According to 1930 Census, Ruth was born in 1921. Do you have something that says 1910? Also, her parents, Harvey and Goldie were married in 1919. Tks

Hello! I am writing to see how we are related!! :-) Ada Myers, Robert Geesey's sister, is my mothers grandmother. Ada has/had a daughter, not listed on the site, Ruth. She is my grandmother. I think that Mabel is your grandmother? I did email you at the yahoo address that you have listed. I look forward to hearing from you soon! When I have time, I will be updating some of the family history from my grandmother down!

Bill Pyles
RE: Seymour Pyles
William "Bill" Pyles passed away on February 15th 2013. He loved visiting cemeteries and working on his genealogy. He passed the genealogy information to his son Kenny Pyles. I'm Chris Marshall, his grandson. I remember visiting the Fort Ashby cemetery every time we took a trip from Florida (our resident state). Our last trip was in 2011. He was unable to get on the computer much since his stroke a few years prior.

Emma Jane Staley Spangler
Thank you for posting the obituary for Emma Jane Staley Spangler 23381278. It solved a family mystery. Her obituary says she was the daughter of Elizabeth Hesson and Joseph Staley. I have been looking for Elizabeth. I believe she is the daughter of Jacob Hesson and Anna Marie Coblentz. I am a descendant of Anna Marie's parents. Please email me if you would like more information. Jane from MI
