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:

The memorial for Alice Ann Mason Morrison - have sent you an edit to change her birth date year to 1840 per census 1860, and her gggggranddaughter has her OB and death record showing the year as 1840 not 1849.
Thank you

Hi Bill,
It took awhile for me to get the courage to try the coding procedure you provided me with, but I finally did it tonight with great success! Yeh!
Many thanks for taking the time to help me with this. I'll now spend the winter linking all my ancestors together! hehe!
I hope you've had a great summer,
