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.

Margaret E Keefer 41467626

You attached a photo to Margaret E Keefer. The headstone clearly says she was the wife of William B, but the findagrave memorial says she was the wife of Jerome H Keefer. I am wondering if you attached the photo to the wrong memorial or if Margaret was married to two different Keefers. I did find trees on indicating that Jerome was married to Margaret Wilson and William to Margaret McDonald.

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.
