Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Bedford Co. I have been researching my family for the past 10 years. I married Jay Lloyd Clapper from Morrison's Cove. My mother was Anna Belle Deremer and my father is Raymond James Nave. Other surnames that I am researching are Cessna, O'Neal, Sollenberger, Teeter, Amick, Campbell.

I started my research in 1999 and I now have over 70,000 names from Bedford County in it.

My stonewall is my great-great-great-grandfather Christian Nave. I have not been able to find out much about him. I think he may have come from Morrison's Cove. Last source I have is the 1823 tax list for Cumberland Vally. I have been trying to find his burial location for the past 10 years with no success. His wife was Barbara Miller. Her burial location along with her son Nicholas is also a mystery.

Margaret Straw Blattenberger #66751009
If you could also move Daniel's wife, Margaret Straw Blattenberger #66751009 to Fishertown Brethren, I will delete my entry & add the photographs to your memorial.

Daniel Blattenberger #66751713
I sent you a correction by e-mail about a month ago but do not believe you received it.
Daniel Blattenberger #66751713 is in the wrong cemetery. Instead of Hoover Cem. Alum Bank (Pleasantville) West St. Clair Twp. Bedford Co. PA he is in Fishertown Brethren Cem. aka Hoover Cem. in Fishertown East St. Clair Twp. Bedford Co. PA.
I have posted photographs of his memorial as well as that of his wife Margaret & his son Adam. There is some confusion on these cemeteries because they are both referred to as Hoover Cem. but on Findagrave, Tom Imler's name of Fishertown Brethren Cem. was used instead of the more common name of Hoover Cem. or Graveyard.
It is fairly easy to change though it requires a few steps: Click on Edit, click on burial info,click on continue which will bring up Hoover Cem., bold or delete Hoover Cem., type in Fishertown, & Fishertown Brethren will show. Click on Fishertown Brethren & then click on save changes.

Wm Pringle
Would you share the documents stating about Wm Pringle's death date and burial site? Wm paid taxes in Woodbury Twp. Bedford Co. when he died in 1829. I contacted the local SAR & DAR they know of no records for his burial site.
I believe he is buried in the Claysburg area, there is a Philip Pringle 1807-1880 buried in the Pressel cemetery.
I volunteer for the Blair Co. Genealogical Society and like to file this info.

Thank you

Donald Whipple Fox / Hushasha
Bedford Valley
Hi Harriet: I'm researching my maternal aunt's husband's family, the Zembowers. I have run into a few obituaries with place names which are proving difficult for me. Most of the individuals are in Cumberland, Alleghany, Maryland. However, I keep seeing "Bedford Valley." I can't make it out if that is in Maryland or Pennsylvania or both. Some of these obituaries simply state that the individual was born in Bedford Valley and that their child lives in "city." I have no idea and was wondering if you have come upon this. Thanks for any help you can give me. Best wishes from sultry Minneapolis, Donald Fox

Mary E. Roberts Perdew
Hi Harriet,

Mary E. Roberts Perdew is not buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery with her husband. She is buried in the Johnson cemetery. Her parents, George W. and Rebecca P. Roberts are also there. Please transfer her memorial to the correct cemetery and link her to her parents.

When the family went to bury her husband, Moses K. Perdew, the grave kept filling with water so they buried him in Mt. Hope Cemetery as a second choice.

Source for Margaret Wisegarver Crissman burial
Hi Harriet,

Could you share your source for Margaret Wisegarver Crissman being buried in Horn Cemetery? There is no photo of the grave and a published genealogy states that she is buried in St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery in Cessna. I'd love to know your source as it would make sense she is buried with her husband in Horn.

Thank you,

Maria Catharina Cristman Imler, Imler Cemetery
I re-did Maria's bio.
You may be interested, since it points towards some errors in your listings that I advised you on in that e-mail I sent. We can't let those genealogy errors continue, they will destroy the credibility of the Cemetery Listing.
