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!

Hello Amanda,
Thank you so much for taking time to search for these burials. I moved the burials from Horn cemetery to Schellsburg. I sent an email request to the Schellsburg cemetery personnel to verify. I can not find those records online at this time.
Thank you for your kind assistance.

Andrew Horn, d. 1868
Hi Amanda. Andrew Horn (d. Nov. 4, 1868) was a son of Henry Horn (1758-1845) and Elizabeth Pretzman Horn but the site isn't showing a relationship between them, is this something you can fix from your end? They're buried at the Horn Church in Bedford County, PA. We were just there today to plant flowers and I noticed there's no info connecting them as relatives when I got on to upload a photo. Thanks!

re: Andrew Horn
At time of my entry (working from a cemetery listing) didn't have benefit of pix of headstone. Believe u are correct so have deleted my entry. Thanx for the catch.

Margaret Wisegarver Crisman
Hello, and thank you for contacting me about Margaret Wisegarver Crisman's memorial (128665507). I have been vexed by the other memorial (81151665), which is groundless. Margaret Wisegarver Crisman is buried in Saint John's Lutheran Church Cemetery (and is NOT buried at Horn). If you go back and read my source notes closely (128665507), you will see that Margaret requested in her will to be buried next to her husband, but that her request was NOT fulfilled. I have two separate source citations for her burial - including Boor's survey which includes the headstone inscription. The other memorial is not substantiated in any way whatsoever. I have repeatedly tried to contact the other poster for a few years on this issue and she has never replied. It looks like a lot of people have issues with her memorials (just look at the comments left on her FOG comments page). Amanda, I am aware of all your great contributions to Find A Grave and am very grateful of all your hard work. If you have any suggestions on how to correct this issue, I'd be glad to hear.

Thank you. When ever it is convenient for you. I really appreciate it.

Thank you very much. By any chance can you read what is on the stone? I can't see the writing very well, its very old.
Added by Babydw on Apr 28, 2015 9:49 PM
Sorry, I didn't reply sooner. I will take a look at the edits tab as I did not know it was changed. Thanks for everything.

Please look at her record. I did not make the name changes because the FAQ's state the record should be whats on the tombstone. I think I put all the information in her bio. Let me know if you would like something else changed.
