|Bio and Links|
As a result of a telephone call in 1991, I started to research one of my family's surnames. To this day, I am VERY glad 'a distant Snook cousin' contacted and connected with my family.|
It is an interesting journey tracing the Snook name. If you share this particular name, you know exactly what I mean! Countless individuals share this passion. If you are reading this, perhaps you share it too! To me, it is a slice of Americana!
I cannot put into words, the first time I stood at the foot of my g-g-g grandparent's final resting place. An indelible moment. Recently I was able to locate another g-g-g grandfather's marker. This was possible through the efforts of another and this project. Thanks Dan OH! Thus, I too have joined FAG. On my visit to PA, my family and I photographed stones in several locations around Mifflin County. In some way, they seem connected to the Kepharts, Gearharts, Barrs and Snooks but may not be directly related. Discovering my Printz ancestry is a new journey.
I smiled when I found Dr. Flinn's marker. This doctor dressed my great grandfather's snakebite wound when Eddie Snook was a little boy living in the Narrows (Reedsville). As I turned, I recognized another name. Elmer Dippery. The gentleman who loved and played baseball with my g-grandfather in 1890's.
I wish to thank all the amazing and dedicated people who have been kind to help & encourage me. In closing, I have tried to do this with and out of respect. If you have a concern or take note of an error, please contact me. Thank you.

Susan, I'm posting photos of the graves for the Mervines as you described them. Please check them out carefully to be sure you agree. I've posted a group photo with each and an additional photo of the back for George. The first (left) in the group photo is likely little Margaret; hers is the smallest stone and "X days" is visible. Sarah is the second grave. George is the broken stone, which may be lying face down; a stray piece lies in back of Sarah's headstone. There is no way to identify George's headstone. The final stone is likely that of Joseph, though the letters are not clear enough to be certain. If you would like any removed, please contact me. Sandi

I just posted her obit to the memorial. Hopefully it will help you determine if she is the one you are looking for.
Just uploaded a photo for Charles, Rose, and Elmer. Also on the stone are Thomas P. Griffith and Ester A. Griffith. Not sure what the relation is. If you'd like to make these two memorials I'd be happy to upload my photo.

Thanks for the information. I think I updated all. I'm transferring Gwen to you, since you are related and I'm not. Also found I had her obit and posted it to the memorial.
