Bio and Links
I started to do my family genealogy over 25 years ago when my one daughter had to do a school report. Some of my surnames are: McCloskey, Yarnell, Decker, Mentzer, Waggoner/Wagner, Butler from Clarion Co., McGee, Leitch and several others.

I live near Howard married with two daughters and two grandsons.

Adoption of David Mentzer
Hi! Since David was your 3rd Great Grandfather, I took the liberty of transferring him to you. You may want to do some more research (maybe in to come up with a better date of death. The gravestone is partially unreadable. It looks like it says 67 years, 6 mo. & 13 Days--but those dates don't translate to 1861 when I plug in his date of birth in the World Calendar:

So, I tinkered with the illegible dates, and the best I could come up with was 19 Jan 1861 as a death date. That would need verifying somewhere else in genealogy records. again, perhaps

Good searching! I know you will take great care of your 3 Great Granfather! My Great Great Grandfather PETER McFERREN (1812-1898) and his wife, NANCY KEIFFER McFERREN (1815-1900) probably knew David Mentzer, and may have been related somehow. 'm sure they went to Church together at Snow Hill Nunnery!

Both Peter & Nancy are dead-ended. 100 families are searching for their parents. If you come across any McFerren info, would appreciate your passing it along to me!

Highland Cemetery
It would really be wonderful if you could add a photograph for Highland Cemetery. For those of us who will never get the chance to go there in person, it would be greatly appreciated.
