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.

Glenn and Ida Mae Mitchell
Just wondered if you knew my Aunt and Uncle
and what they died from - I never knew they
passed but noticed they died the same year!
I want to visit their graves asap. My mother, his sister Ruth, is 101 1/2 and loved them. They
did not live close and didn't get to see each other much after growing up in Uniontown.
Appreciate any info you may have. Thank you for posting! If you know what Section of the grave yard would love to know as we go back to town
frequently during good weather.
God Bless

Adam Mitchell
Hello! I think your Adam Mitchell (93251295) is the brother of my great-great-great grandfather Chambers Mitchell (42729890) of Ligonier. They seem to appear on the 1860 census together. His parents were Samuel and Ellen Mitchell. I see you list his mother's maiden name as Harbison. Would you happen to know where this came from? I've been having a hard time tracing their parents. I'd appreciate any help!
