Bio and Links
Researching our families has progressed from a hobby to a passion. Family histories are so interesting.

We research mainly Barckley,Johnson,Peterson,Sprague on my husbands side and Yohn,Miller,Detrich,Zeigler,Crider on mine.

We try to enter gravestones where we can as so many have helped us. If possible we will try to obtain additional info for those in need. So do not hesitate to ask and if possible we will look for obituaties,marriage records etc. We live in south central PA and have access to several Historical Societies,Libraries and other records in Cumberland and Franklin Counties as well as a few surrounding counties.

We thank so many of you who have helped us thru the years with photo's and advise on where to find info in so many states.

RE: Dixon family edits
Ruth - this information comes from the burial records of Hillside Cemetery. About 10 years ago, a man named Fred Krege (sp?) walked the entire cemetery and wrote down all the dates on the tombstones and then, went to the library and read every obit that was published plus death records which then connected family members together and he made notations of which family members belonged to whom on this record. These records are now maintained by Whitewater Public Library, Whitewater, Wisconsin and I have obtained a copy from them. I am now entering all those who have died that are on this list into Hillside Cemetery so that their family members can find them.

I am not related to any of the people in this cemetery.

RE: Gertrude F and William H Brush
They are buried next to each other in section 20 of Forest Lawn cemetery, so I would say they are probably husband and wife. If you want more information you could call the cemetery office at (716) 885-1600

RE: George G McKelvy
Yes, Lydia was first wife ...
George G McKelvy [sic], 23, son of John McKelvy [sic], and Lydia A Beidel, 21, daughter of John M Beidel, were married June 28, 1888, in Steelton, Dauphin Co, PA. Both were residents of Steelton at time of marriage license.
(marriage license)
Grant McKelvey was 49 (widowed May 28, 1901 [sic], son of John and Lydia Groft McKelvey, married Catherine C Crider, 54, divorced May 14, 1914, daughter of Jacob and Christina Keener Bender, on May 30, 1914, according to their marriage license.
BUT something looks very wrong. If she was only married once prior to McKelvey, and he died in 1898 according to memorial, how could she have had a dicorce in 1914?
Might want to contact me via email to see if we can figure this one out.

Hi Ruth, Please remove Robert Coates from a request for photo at Cedar Cemetery.

We did find his obit that says he is buried there, but there is no record of his burial.

I think I have done all to find a photo of his grave stone and it is not there. I'm sorry, but as you know, sometimes records are just not as accurate or complete as we would like for them to be.
