Bio and Links
Bio Photo This started with my mother's photograph albums about 1999...flipping through, asking questions, slowly realizing that the info I was learning needed to be remembered well past that day.

Since that time, I've learned so much about my own history and the ancestors who came before me. I've gained an appreciation for them and the local history that I never had as a kid. Now the stories about the area where I grew up - southwestern Pennsylvania - took on new meaning. I've learned my ancestors' roles in that history and discovered their contributions.

My goal is to honor them all with a memorial that I hope will survive long past me.

Ancestors of research: Ambrose, Barnhart, Bitner, Buzzard, Coover, Countryman, Dellone, Dutocq, Eacus, Emerick, Grainer, Griffin, Haquin, Harbison, Holtzer, Karns, Kohler, Kuhns, Lauer, Long, Matthews, McAllister, McClarran, McNutt, Mechling, Mitchell, Myers, Nicely, Noel, Poet, Romer, Schmidt, Shirey, Spohn, Stepp, Thomas, Walker, Weaver, Weiss, and Wilhide.

Sprinkled among the ancestors' memorials are a few for friends I have lost. They, too, have played important roles in my life.

For all who have come before and walked the same grounds that I later found, I hope these memorials do them justice.

If I've created a memorial for a relative of yours (and it's not an ancestor of mine) and you'd like a transfer, please ask - via the edit tab. Family belongs with family.

RE: Madelin Brubaker Noel
Hi, I'm not related to Madelin. Just came across her photo in my mother-in-law's high school year book and thought you might enjoy. Jody :}
