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.

Thank you so much.

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.

RE: John Yohn
Ruth,
I posted that picture of "Yohn" for Sarah also, as you requested. Hopefully we have correctly identified the location...we feel fairly certain.

Laura Swanger Yohn - memorial #22710166
I have been searching for years for the proverbial needle in a haystack and am hoping that you can help me make a family connection in my search for my grandfather, Herbert Frank Wagner (c.1895-?). US 1920 Census records show that his second wife, Esther "Beatrice" Swanger Wagner (c.1896-?), was living with her sister Maggie Swanger Yohn (John C). When I discovered Beatrice's name in the obituary you posted on the memorial for their sister Laura, I thought perhaps you might have some info on this family. Or maybe you could direct me to a source. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Please leave me a public message or contact me via my email address ... kidsbooksrbest AT gmail.com.
