I was going through my "The Lost and Forgotten Cemeteries of Huntingdon County Pennsylvania" book by Linneria B. Wheland, and I found the following entry for the Huyett Cemetery of Hartslog Valley:

 

John Householder, July 4, 1781 - Jan. 31, 1856

 

There has been discussion about this John Householder in different forums, and I thought I would add this info.  I know that some people say he was born about 1787.  It is quite possible his tombstone was misread or that there was a typo in the book.  However, the book does say 1781.

Hi Deb,

Thank you for the information. The year 1787 was just an estimate based upon the 1850 census, but 1781 might be correct.

Does Huyett Cemetery still exist?

Thanks,


Jessica

My Great  grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Householder whose father was  John Housholder born 9-18-1807 died 9-26-1880.  He was married to a Catharine Vandevanter who was born 12-15-1815  died 9-28-1900. My mother, Marybelle Frank  got into the DAR on the Vandevanter side of the family. I have the Vandevanter lineage back to 1629 in Holland,

Jessica, I assume it still exists.  I personally do not know where it is.  The book just says Hartslog Valley.  Maybe someone will post who knows more.

Darla, can you give me a list of Andrew and Mary Frank's children?  I list 9 children, but only have names for 6 of them.

Hi Deb,

I took a look on the internet, and it looks as though it might be halfway between Alexandria and Huntingdon in Porter Township. I can't tell from the satellite image if any tombstones still exist there, though.

Here is a link to the image: http://www.histopolis.com/Place/US/PA/Huntingdon_County/Huyett_Cemetery

Does anyone else know anything about this cemetery?

Thanks,


Jessica

Yes, it exists today. I had a photo of John's stone sent to me in the last few days.

I will get that to you!

My grandmother was Rose Householder Holzshu, d/o James Clayton, s/o JFN and Samantha.

I have found some great distant relatives who have helped me start to piece this family together. The repetitive use of names is so confusing!

I just posted a few of the photo's I have from the Huyett cemetery, the cemetery still does exsist to some degree as you can see by the photo's. My cousin owns the land, his mother gave me permission to take the photo's. I'm not sure I'd want to get caught on his property without permission from the storys I've been told. Your not really missing anything, my cousin plowed most of the stones into a pile and there is only 2 small corners left. You can see about what's left from my photo's. I assume all of the Huyett stone's are gone, I didn't see any Huyett's at all. I was warned of the destruction by his mother and several neighbors before I got to the cemetery. It made me sick to my stomach!

In a tiny village in Germany the year is approximately 1625. A child is born, his name is Johannes, he grows into a fine man. He has children of his own, now I'm not sure if these are all of his children, but the ones that have been found are:(


    Johannes (Hans) Michel born: 1650

    Lorentz born: 1657

    Anna Catherina born abt: 1668


The years go on and Hans Michel becomes a young man and takes as his wife, Maria Margaretha ___________. Now they have children, here are the children that have been located:


    Johannes born: about 1690

    Maria Margaretha born: unknown


The years advance once again. Johannes takes a wife, Anna Barbara Siegel. Their known children are:


    Johann Michel born: February 2, 1715

    Johannes born: October 18, 1716

    Maria Margaretha born: June 28, 1718

    Johannes (Hans) Adam born: December 20, 1719

    Maria Barbara born: September 25, 1721
