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:

RE: Meeker Memorials
I can make a memorial for him, at Tod's, based on the death certificate information. Do you want me to?

RE: Meeker Memorials
Found Eugene's death certificate. Will send as an attachment if you send me your email address. It lists Ethel as his wife. Who is Martha Ann? It says he is buried in Tod's.

RE: Meeker Memorials
Hello Bill,

Do you have any specifics about Eugene and Martha? Are they at Forest Lawn or another cemetery in Youngstown? I'll be happy to keep an eye out for them. Let me know if you have additional clues.

Memorial Relationship Update for 84525099
I updated relationship information for parents of Woodrow Wilson Daugherty (my 2nd Cousin 2x removed). Did you happen to be related to this family or just a coincidence on the last name?

RE: Henry & Minnie Roeth
Henry died in 1925, and 4 plots were purchased at that time in Valhalla Cemetery. They are now holding Henry & Minnie Roeth, and Dr. Robert & Edna Foster. Minnie died in 1952. Dr. Robert Foster died in 1964, and Edna Foster died in 1977. They are in Section 22, Lot 51, Graves 1-4, and they do have a headstone.

I was able to research this over the phone with Valhalla Cemetery, but I have no records at Hillcrest Abbey concerning the Roeths. As to your questions about the "removal", it generally means that either a casket or an urn was removed at the request of a family member. This would leave a paper trail for future inquiries such as yours.

If I can be of further help, please contact me at Find-A-Grave or at Hillcrest Abbey, where I am the manager.

Emma Dennison
I was at the Mt. Vernon Cemetery yesterday looking for Emma Dennison's headstone. The Mt. Vernon Cemetery records show her buried in Section I Lot 1857. I discovered the lot, however; there are no headstones in that lot.

Mary Anna Tate Daugherty
Hi, Bill. I visited Edge Hill Cemetery in Charlestown, WV, today to see if I could find the cemetery stone for Mary Anna Tate Daugherty, first wife of Joseph T. Daugherty. I was able to find her in the lot of her father William Tate. After carefully studying the stone, I believe the date of death is: 11th January 1832. Even though the death year could be read 1852, a very close look shows the fancy lettering to be 1832, not 1852. This makes sense since I have found a marriage notice of Joseph T. Daugherty to Emily Matilda Jones, his second wife, in 1834. I know that the second wife's tombstone has her name as Emily M. Marchant, wife of Joseph T. Daugherty. (She may have remarried a Marchant after Joseph died in 1842. Will research that.) In Joseph's will he refers to his first wife and names his present wife as Emily Matilda Daugherty. I'm adding my photos of the tombstones of this family to Findagrave and linking them together. Let me know what you think.

RE: Updegrove Photos
Hi Bill,

You're welcome. Sorry that the marker is so hard to read. We tried taking several photographs of it and finally settled on incuding a transcription of the marker.
