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.

Storer & Rader

I know we have communicated before but check this out.

In 45 years I have never been able to link both of my family names together before.

Henrietta Storer Find A Grave 139219311 is my mothers maiden name John Fred Storer Find A Grave 30569048 is my grandfather.

William Glen Rader Find A Grave 93902055 is my fathers name and my 5th great grandfather was Casper Rader Find A Grave 32221693 from Wythe County, Virginia.

Catherine Rader Find A Grave 116294316 daut of Casper married Johnathan Leedy Find A Grave 116294073 They had a daughter Catherine Leedy Find A Grave 39640361 who married Daniel Marshall Sharitz Find A Grave 94132032 they had a daughter Ollie Bell Sharitz Find A Grave 115432190 who married Worley Basil Umberger Find A Grave 115432276 son of Franklin T Umberger Find A Grave 72555537 and Mary Sophia Miller Find A Grave 72555765

I just linked Worley to his Father and Mother.

Hope you can figure this out. It is hard to explain but it works.

Fred Buchholz Family
Hi Davis, Thank you for creating the memorials for Fred Buchholz, his wife Madeline, and their daughter Mary Buchholz Blankenship. I'm also grateful for the photos of their final resting place. Preserving the roots of our ancestors is very valuable to me. It is something that I can pass to my children and grand children. Thank you again for your time and hard work in helping to memorialize some of my relatives.
I greatly appreciate it :) S Blake
