Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in Genealogy for as long as I can remember. I love finding out new information everyday, I love unfolding the past. I live in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. If I know where the Cemetery is and can find it, I will gladly take some photo's for you. Some of the last names of my family are Wolf/Wolfe, Grabill, Smith, Valentine, Mulhollen, Paulson, Gindlesperger, Amick, Hoover, Blackburn, Barefoot, Dull, Russell, Bender, McConnell, Gordon, Shaffer, Young, Imler, Feather, and many many more.

If you would like to use ANY of my photos please ask permission or at least site who and where you got the photo from.

I put a lot of time and energy into this research of my family and of others. If I ever use anyones photo's from I ask permission and/or give them credit for taking the photo. I have recently found SEVERAL of my photos popping up as a hint on my family tree and they are photo's I have taken and added to but they are just as if the person took the photo themselves. They are NOT giving me the credit for the photo.

If you are having a misunderstanding on the guidelines of this site there is a help area. Where you can find all the information.

This is what I put in the photo's description when adding it to let say my family tree on

Ex: Amanda Smith added this photo 11-30-11 on

all you have to do is copy and paste it into the only takes a few seconds!

Rebecca Fickes
Amanda, Rebecca Fickes is buried right next to James and there is a photo request out for her stone. Her memorial has no transcription, or dates at all. If you ever go back there, might you be able to get something to complete her memorial? I am just thinking of the future generations wanting to know. Thanks, Pat J.

Hi Amanda

I am researching Harry Deaner, who was born Harry Hull. Shortly after the age of one, he appears to have been adopted or taken in by the Deaner family. Can you contact me if you know anything about Harry's Hull family.

Hi Amanda,

If I find out they got the person in the right county and I know about the other memorial I try and let them know. The burial unknowns are what get me, they just put them out there floating around and then expect you to delete your memorial even though you are the one who found the burial location. I have had it out with some of those people, they don't seem to understand that the site is called Find A GRAVE for a reason.

If I do find there is a burial unknown before I create my memorial I will let them know, but half the time the contributors are no longer active and don't even respond to emails.

Hi Amanda,

I can delete my memorial, but for future reference when you find a memorial in the wrong cemetery you should contact the contributor first and give them a chance to move it into the correct cemetery. Since the memorial I created in the wrong cemetery has been around for five years people may have bookmarked that memorial number or have other references to it. I understand you probably created your memorial before finding the memorial I created.

Headstones no longer exists. I transcribed this cemetery back in 1999 and the volunteers for the Cambria County site did the same and neither of us could find this. I've looked since then with no luck.

Minnie A Claycomb Bender
Hello Amanda,
I am curious as to why the obituary for Minnie A Claycomb Bender says her father is Samuel Claycomb then below the obituary under Family Links her father is given as Daniel.
I have a copy of her Certificate of Death. It shows her father as Daniel Claycomb.
I am wondering if the obituary is incorrect or if a mistake was made when it was copied from the newspaper for Find A Grave.
Do you have an email address to which I could send a copy of the Certificate of Death?

Lucille (Oldham) Callihan
Just a note to let you know, Lucille Callihan (Find A Grave Memorial# 127123896) and I (Larry Reighard), are 1st cousins once removed, and she is most assuredly alive. She will be buried in the Cuppett Family Cemetery in New Paris next to her husband, Harry, when she does answer the final call, though
