Bio and Links
I was born & raised in Bedford area. My ancestors were from southern Bedford Co., including Cumb. Valley, Colerain and South Hampton Twps. Surnames I'm researching include HOOK, Valentine MILLER, Bennett, Shaffer, and Feight.
If you find errors, or would like more info. feel free to contact me.
Please don't be offended if I post a photo on a memorial in which you had already posted one, if
I believe my pict. is more readable I add it. Being a genealogist, I believe it provides better "proof" if I can read it my self. If you have a photo to add to my memorials that can be easier read, please feel free to add it.

Thank you for posting my grandfather's memorial. Since moving to Maine 17 years ago; I have been unable to return to place flowers on the families markers. That was something that my daughter and I did for many years.

Names of Cemeteries
Sorry about other message, clicked enter too soon. Can you tell me if Bortz Lutheran Church Cem and Providence Lutheran Church Cem, both in Centerville, PA, are the same or two different places?

The obit of Philip Staggers MILLER, Bedford Inquirer of 20Dec2013, gave Providence, your entry for his wife Nellie E. GROVES gave Bortz. You have a picture of her tombstone with dates, name of John S. MILLER with dates, apparently her first husband, and the name Philip S. MILLER with no dates.

Philip was born 7Jul1915, died 10Dec2013 at Timonium, Maryland.
