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:

Rev Hans Herr, Jr, Swiss Mennonite Bishop, 8th Great-Grandfather. (Herr)

John Herr and Mary Groff
Hi Bill, Thank you for identifying the Hans Herr Descendants, by number, from the 'Genealogical Record'. After searching, I can't locate find-a-grave memorials for John Herr (HH descendant 82 , b. Mar. 10, 1740) and Mary Groff (HH descendant 181, b. Aug. 5, 1735, d. July 10, 1801), my 4th great grandparents. Do you have more information on them in your database? Thank you.

RE: Virgil Helman Photo
Bill, Virgil is the only one, or I would have taken them all. Beacon show's the other two but no markers. Not even a temp.

RE: Gailey and Brenneman Photos
You're welcome. Note that I photoed every Brenneman in the section (and if you descend from them, we're related) and all the Gaileys in the cemetery.

Philip Henry Williams, Sr #109977547
I actually had Philip, Priscilla and William on my "To Do" list of photos today so your request was a great co-incidence. Anyhow, I tracked down Philip's parents and photographed their graves as well.

LL Warren (1884) has no surviving marker and Mary Warren (1900) has no marker and is not listed in Cave Hill's database as being there. Added site photos for each.

Updegrove Book
I have that same book, Bill. Nice to meet a cousin. I guess I had the wrong brother in mind as my ancestor. You are correct. It was Isaac. I wish I had been at the cemetery the day you were here. I am out there almost every day in the seasons without snow. Sorry I missed you.
