Hi Everyone,

The family moved to Central Ohio (Licking, Delaware and Franklin Counties).

Benjamin Franklin Hillier's granddaughter married into the Norris Family.

About Me

Researching the Lee family. Robert Lee and wife Elizabeth purchased land in the Woodcock Valley in 1795 and at least some of it was passed down through his son James and his son John.  The property was lost when it had to be sold to pay debts at the death of John Lee in 1875.

About Me

I was born and raised in Penn Twp; just recently became interested in genealogy; I     spend much time in Huntingdon County Courthouse and Juniata College Library  where I find many answers to family births, marriages, and death dates.

 My research currently is on my grandmother, Bessie (Grove) McCall's two sisters, Laura (Grove) Smith and Mary( Grove) Smith,  who lived in Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co.  They were born here in Penn Twp , Huntingdon County; married two Smith brothers,  Samuel and Jacob  from Centre County.  The husbands had a thriving Smith Brothers Bakery in Pittsburgh during the 1920, 1930, and maybe in 1940s. They employed family members and other men during that time.

We've lost complete contact with this part of our family.

These two ladies, Laura and Mary, are two of fifteen children of the Benjamin and Hannah (Johnston/Johnson) Grove family.

About Me

I have been researching my ancestory for about 50 years.  Have recently learned that my great great grandfather was born in Huntingdon County likely in the area you are writing about.  I belong to ancestry.com and have done a great deal of reserach in the Centre County Pennsylvania Room.  Being a grandma of six grandchildren keeps me busy and I am retired.  Family members are helping and no one has been able to get past this great great grandfather so I am hoping reaching out to you may help me and others.
