I inherited an interest in genealogy from my mother, who researched her family and my father's family in the 1970s and 80s. A family trip to eastern Kentucky in Summer 2011 led me to Find a Grave. I have enjoyed taking volunteer photos and learning more about the history of Centre County, PA. I mainly visit cemeteries in southern Centre County and part of Huntington County. I am willing to check cemetery records if you have a request (almost all of the Centre County cemeteries are indexed). You may use any pictures I have taken for your genealogy research.
Family Surnames: Hass, Hoppe (Iowa, Minnesota) - Rueve (Ohio, Minnesota) - Johnson, Gouge, Crace, Conley, Jayne, Wilson (all eastern Kenucky and/or North Carolina) Husband's Family Surnames: Hedges - Hathaway (Washington DC, New Jersey, New England) - Hampton - Kyle (Virginia) (Virtual cemeteries are open to the public)
Louise Josephine Young I photographed the Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery in Barnum, MN in 2013 and sent info to you that I thought should be added. I thought you might like to know that the bush this tall stone was in, is gone. The small stones leaning against it are gone too. :-( The single small stone for Louise Josephine that stands alone is cleaner, easier to read now.
It's been 2 years since I sent that info, so maybe that big bush has grown back by now.
Cora & Agnes Bitner Carla, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the photos you posted, especially the one which proves that their husband Henry F Bitner (a first cousin of my grandfather) is buried with them. In my research I lost track of Henry after he left Lewisburg in the 1930s. It took several years until I found a clue in a letter he had written to another cousin in Minnesota which eventually enabled me to track him to Elmira NY and there I learned the rest of the story except I didn't know where he was buried. Thanks for solving that problem. I've posted a memorial for him (# 130332661) and I would greatly appreciate it if you could post a photo on it.
