Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started genealogical research in 1970 when I asked my grandmother to take me to the cemeteries around Imperial, PA, and show me the graves of my ancestors.

I taught at Texas A&M-Galveston for 31 years, so much of my genealogical work was done during short vacations to visit Dad and Mom in Coraopolis, PA, in the summer and at Christmas. Fortunately I got Dad interested in family history and much of what I have in my files is material he gathered.

When I retired, I returned to western Pennsylvania, which I had always planned to do, so I could once again enjoy hills, fall color change, and all the beauty of the area.
Besides the Harper clan, I'm researching the Hoffman, Scharpf, Schick, Burns, Crooks, Ball, Langfitt, Donaldson, and McBride families that have roots in western Penna., and the Seesing family of my late wife, the Hartley, Ladd, Gunn families of my ex-wife, and the Smith family of my son-in-law.

Photos posted on FaG are available for use by anyone who wants to use them. I just ask that proper credit be given if used.

Frank Gray
I found him listed under the Grey's in Jackson County's records. I set up the memorial and linked him to Florence and his parents. I have also transferred Frank's memorial page to you.

I hope this helps! :D

You'll find Frank at Find A Grave #158187910

Most of my family are buried in SW Pennsylvania, but I entered spreadsheets for cemeteries all around the country.

Do you know if Ellen Jane Wallace was the third or fourth wife of John Harper? I have a Cochran, Denny, and Miller as wives before her.

Martha Burns edit
Whatever you sent already got accepted, and I have no easy way to check to see what it was. So please re-send another edit to return it to what it was originally. Thanks.
