Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy since 1992 when I actually went to Kentucky to check on the old Young farm in Guston and also to Wytheville, Virginia, to check on my Umberger ancestors.
My ancestor, Greenberry F Young settled in Brandenburg after marrying Ann Simmons there in 1832. In 1850, he was in Lawrence County Indiana after going broke. His oldest son, William Davis Young re-appears in Meade County to marry Sally Ashcraft in 1862.

I am also working on the relatives of my maternal grandfather, Victor Glenn Umberger, and his father, Franklin T Umberger, of Wythe Co, VA.

I am truly grateful for how much easier the Internet has made genealogy activity; especially the databases at Ancestry, FamilySearch and FindaGrave.

RE: Keller, Slanker at Pomona
Incidentally, I noticed several other Slankers in that area. There are 5 that do not have memorials on Find a Grave -- I will create memorials for these soon. Will

Hello Davis,

Just a short note to let you know that I am truly grateful and overjoyed for the splendid photos of my father's grave. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to help a total stranger with my photo request and to pinpoint his burial location. The photos are priceless.

Finally, and most important, thank you for your contributions as a volunteer Find A Grave contributor. You can be assured your photo contributions will be appreciated by families today, many you may never hear from, and the photos will surely be appreciated by future generations.

Again, thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request; your kindness made me very happy.

Have a wonderful day,
