Bio and Links
Bio Photo With a Chronic case of Genealogy, embracing Find A Grave was a "NO BRAINER". My interests and roots are deep in Clearfield Co. Pa. and also Western New York. Family Surnames include Schoening, Rakestraw, Merritt and Litz along with Clark, Mackie, Allen and Gaylord.

There is no desire to have tens of thousands of people. On the contrary I am more than happy to transfer to direct decendents. My focus is as much on having people linked rather than transferred to my account. Along with personal knowledge of family and many hours of research each person is a unique event. That being said however, when pencils are purchased, also a whole box of erasers are purchased. Should You find an error on my part, all effort will be given to correct.

The tree's (linkeages) are meant to be an outline for those who are pursuing their own Genealogy. For those who are just starting or seasoned in the field of Genealogy - "TRUST, BUT VERIFY"

A few people that we are trying to locate gravesites for:

Felinda Schoening (aka Philinda and surname also could be Shoening or Shoning) died 1877 in Ansonville area of Clearfield County.

Amelia Schoening (aka Emily or Emilie) b abt 1813 - last known marriage was to William Reed (could also be Read or Reid) in 1858 - Mr Reed was from Ferguson Twp.

Seymore Schoening died 1933 in Clearfield Co.

Mary Jane Noble-Rakestraw (est death 1865-1868)
lived in Beccaria Township.

Last, but not least, a "Big Thank You" to those who are listed as my friends. Without Your help and willingness to go the extra mile - much of this would not exist.

To all - "Happy Hunting"

Added information
Hello Tom,
I thank you so much for taking the time and making the effort to send information regarding:
William Leroy "Roy" Strunk # 92104339
Without the obituary in hand I would have continued to have the wrong date of death on my memorial.
I appreciate any corrections to my posted memorials, since i believe they are for future researchers.
With sincerest thanks,
