Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Bedford Co. I have been researching my family for the past 10 years. I married Jay Lloyd Clapper from Morrison's Cove. My mother was Anna Belle Deremer and my father is Raymond James Nave. Other surnames that I am researching are Cessna, O'Neal, Sollenberger, Teeter, Amick, Campbell.

I started my research in 1999 and I now have over 70,000 names from Bedford County in it.

My stonewall is my great-great-great-grandfather Christian Nave. I have not been able to find out much about him. I think he may have come from Morrison's Cove. Last source I have is the 1823 tax list for Cumberland Vally. I have been trying to find his burial location for the past 10 years with no success. His wife was Barbara Miller. Her burial location along with her son Nicholas is also a mystery.

The obit said he was to buried in the Centerville Cemetery but there is no Find A Grave reference for him, nor for his wife Margaret that I can find. Do you have any information? Thanks for all your Find A Grave and Ancestry work Jan

These four should be deleted.

John Cessna
John Cessna 1692-1798 is my husband's six times gr. grandfather.

There is evidence that he was captured by the Indians but he and his son apparently escaped. There is a copy of his will which was written in 1793 and approved in 1796 and all of his children are listed. There is a family bible which states he was born in 1692 and died around 1798.

I thought you may want to research his death date further and correct his memorial.

Wrong cemetery
Greetings! Will you please delete the memorial you have for Isabel Elder. I was correct when I informed you before she was laid to rest at the Trinity United Church of Christ cemetery aka Trinity Reformed aka Dry Ridge cemetery with all these three names in history. Which is about 4 miles up the road from the Dry Ridge aka St. James Lutheran cemetery. I posted pictures of her grave, which I photographed today. The grave lays below the Trinity United Church of Christ church on the right hand side near the bottom of the cemetery.

Hello Harriet,

Mary Isabel "Isabel" Elder
Please delete this memorial. There has been a big mistake in names on cemeteries with people on find a grave. This cemetery you mistakenly made a memorial for Mary Elder has been known as the St. James Lutheran and the Dry Ridge Cemetery on Glade Pike, Manns Choice, Pennsylvania. If you drive farther up the road you will come to what has been known in history as the Dry Ridge, the Trinity Reformed, and the Trinity United Church of Christ Church Cemetery. Many people of the younger generation think of the Dry Ridge Cemetery being the one you have placed this memorial in. When in fact it is the cemetery many know the cemetery mentioned as Dry Ridge is the Trinity United Church of Christ on find a grave. If you go to the Trinity United Church of Christ on find a grave you will find a memorial with photograph of the headstone for Mary Isabel Elder. I hope you comply so it helps other researchers seeking their family. Blessings!

RE: Weaver Barnes Cessna @ #60631211
Hi Harriet!

I'm so glad that you contacted me, I have been trying to get a hold of you through your email address, BUT it keeps coming back as 'undelivered' or it just won't go through.......anyway, I was trying send you a copy of Weaver B. Cessna's "Death Certificate", but it does state on there that he died in 1916, not 1933 as you have posted on his Memorial, and the date of death, is not true.

Can you please write to me at and give me your email addy, so I can provide the proof of Weaver B. Cessna's 'Death Date', in 1916.

Thanks, and GOD bless!
