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!

Henry Shoenthal #127665525
What a goldmine in the posting of the Henry Shoenthal article!
I have added an 1877 Beers Map of New Paris showing the Shoenthal store & the two cemeteries in New Paris.
I believe New Paris Community Cemetery is misnamed & it is starting to cause some confusion. Photographs are correct. I believe Cuppet Cemetery was orginally given the name Community Cemetery.
Cuppet Cem. is also known as the Reformed Cem. because it appears that there once was a German Reformed Church there. In a 1976 article for the Pioneer, Winona Garbrick, gives directions COMING FROM SCHELLSBURG, & refers to the cem. on the right as the Community Cem. & the cem. on the left with a steep downward slope as the Methodist Cem. The name Methodist Cem. would make sense because the Evangelical Church (Albright Church on map) & the United Brethren Church united in 1946 & then became part of the Methodist Church.
Also there is a new booklet by the Bedford Co. Vistors Bureau "Bedford Co. Cem." ($10) that shows the New Paris Methodist Cem. on the left & New Paris Cuppet on the right coming from Schellsburg.
Imler does have Henry Shoenthal in Cuppet.
Think it is just a few clicks to change the cemetery. Not sure how to change New Paris Community to New Paris Methodist.

The photo requests you had for Ruth and Marcus Hillegas in the Salisbury Baptist cemetery in Salisbury Maryland were for memorials that were not in that cemetery. They were entered into that cemetery in error. I think the creator saw Salisbury cemetery and assumed it was Maryland?? Maybe?? They were dups of memorials that were entered in the correct cemetery, which was in PA....110149689 is Ruth. There is a link to her husband on her site. There are already pics on the memorials.

Please transfer this memorial to me, I am Virginia's niece and would love to have her with her parents and siblings, if possible.

Martha Smith - no relationship given
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Maureen Speicher - 126543757

I have added Maureen's obituary to the memorial page with one exception, except for her second husband no other living members of her family are listed. I strongly feel that those names should never be included on an open forum like this.
