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!

Elmer Gordon - Crown Hill

I would be happy to take a photo of Elmer Gordon's gravestone at Crown Hill Cemetery if you would let me know the section number. Please contact the cemetery (330-425-8128) and request the section number and forward to me. I won't be able to take the photo until the weather gets nicer in the spring.

Henrietta Caspari
Amanda, The only reason that I decline your updated for Henrietta Caspari is because I have since deleted the memorial. It was a duplicate of memorial ID # 111934001. Thank you!

RE: Hoover Cemetery
Hi, I don't know if I can help you or not. My brother and I drove out there in 1999, we stpped at the post office in fishertown to find where the cemetery was and they directed us to someone in the area who knew where the cemetery was. I know it was aways know as the hoover brethren cemetery in fishertown. I don't know how it became alum bank, as I'm sure it was in fishertown. I remember you couldn't see it from the road and there was no sign for the cemetery. Also it was about a 1/4 mile walk back off the road.

Memorials in Bedford County
Amanda, I have really appreciated all of the time and effort you have made in providing the information on Find A Grave. I am asking that you will give me your permission / blessing in using the photos of many of my ancestors who are buried in that area. Today I followed up on a branch of the family - always using many sources - and found Norma Jean Smith. I am thinking that it is possible that she was maybe your grandmother and if so, we are related and Norma in my 5th cousin 1x removed. I have visited the Bedford area several times over the years searching for information on my ancestors. I would like to 'converse' more with you as I am trying to put all of the information I have collected into print so my two sons don't just put it in a trash bin some day in the future. You can contact me at -- I live several hundred miles from PA.

Some time back I sent you some change, under the new system, for some of the Wright people in Bedford County, PA. Since I have not heard from you, I was wondering if you had received them. Thanks. Jim Wierman
