Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in Genealogy for as long as I can remember. I love finding out new information everyday, I love unfolding the past. I live in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. If I know where the Cemetery is and can find it, I will gladly take some photo's for you. Some of the last names of my family are Wolf/Wolfe, Grabill, Smith, Valentine, Mulhollen, Paulson, Gindlesperger, Amick, Hoover, Blackburn, Barefoot, Dull, Russell, Bender, McConnell, Gordon, Shaffer, Young, Imler, Feather, and many many more.

If you would like to use ANY of my photos please ask permission or at least site who and where you got the photo from.

I put a lot of time and energy into this research of my family and of others. If I ever use anyones photo's from I ask permission and/or give them credit for taking the photo. I have recently found SEVERAL of my photos popping up as a hint on my family tree and they are photo's I have taken and added to but they are just as if the person took the photo themselves. They are NOT giving me the credit for the photo.

If you are having a misunderstanding on the guidelines of this site there is a help area. Where you can find all the information.

This is what I put in the photo's description when adding it to let say my family tree on

Ex: Amanda Smith added this photo 11-30-11 on

all you have to do is copy and paste it into the only takes a few seconds!

Hi Amanda. I am replying to your comment that you left in my family tree on I do not currently have a subscription to Ancestry, so I am unable to send you a message through them. I wanted to let you know that I have added your copyright information to the grave photo for Joseph Curtis Manges. Please understand that in no way was I trying to avoid giving the proper credit. I am able to visit the findagrave website through my Family Tree Maker program. From there, it lets me merge information right from the findagrave site and also supplies my tree with the appropriate source information for the findagrave website. I never thought about the photos being a separate source, so I never questioned the source information of the findagrave site as not being complete. Once again, I am sorry and I have added your information to the photo. Thank you, Kristin.

Incorrect Parents
Ms. Smith, In the memorial for George Way, #67255900, you have the wrong parents listed for George. His father was Harry Clay Way & his mother was Beatrice K. Diehl Way. Also, on all the official documents pertaining to his death, they all show he was killed in Korea not North Korea. I thought you might be interested in this information. Russ Ware

Gerald Davis
Thank you for the obituary for Gerald Davis! Are you a relative of his? His wife Elsie is a cousin of mine via the Roudabush family.

please remove the scanned obit, they are not permitted by findagrave rules. If you wish to transcribe and send it, it can be added that way.

Catherine Smith Adams
Hello! I noticed you left detailed information for Catherine Smith Adams (Memorial #61781613), obituary plus a death certificate. This person may be in my family tree. Do you know if she had a son/steps-son named Uriah Adams?

Mary Bisel and Noah Biasel?

The more I study this family the more complicated it gets.

It is begining to look like there were two Mary’s who married Noah Bisel’s and at least two different Noah Bisel’s. Plus there is another on who married an Easter Catherine Miller. Wil let this rest for now and come back and look again with fresh eyes.

RE: Rebecca Barefoot
That would be great. I think some well-meaning Barefoots found that the names matched up and assumed everything, then they went together and got the grave marker. I've read somewhere that James Barefoot's marker is there somewhere near Rebecca's marker, but it's probably buried. I hope someday the family gets a new marker for both Rebecca and James and can give homage to their pioneer heritage, albeit a little more humble heritage! Thanks.

Noah Bisel 1830–1901 Memorial# 67261056
Amanda, (Found my glasses) I started this list from the data I have in my tree And it is for sure something that is going to take a while. So that we are not duplicating our efforts, may I suggest that I work on this for now and then get back to you when I feel that i am finished.

I find Find A Grave very confusing and some time back I even quit and turned my Memorials over to Find A Grave. If you are interested I would be pleased to turn all the findings over to you for entering them.

La Sotte Servolex, FRANCE Find A Grave is not a very good messaging system for communicating this type of data.

PS Also looks like I need to do some work on my tree relative to which children where from which of Noah' wives!
