About Me

I have been tracing the Prough family now for about 30 years.  And I still have more to find. Hope to make some connections here. Very interested in the Big Trough Creek area.  Am facinated by the Huntingdon area and the people there.

About Me

I've lived in Ohio most of my life.  My branch of the Norris family is dominated by farmers.  We haven't farmed in a generation or so, but there's so much dirt in our bloodline we still bleed brown.  I've restarted our family reunion after a 26-year hiatus and am hoping to develop a family history and lineage to share with the rest of my cousins.

About Me

I was born and live on the west coast of Scotland, started my family research around 2009 and with a bit of help was very successful.  I discovered via Debbie's hard work with this site that some of my Kiltie ancestors from Scotland had settled in Huntingdon and Margaret Kiltie had married John E Hoover of  McConnelstown.  Margaret B Hoover passed away in 1960 and had been a member of the Order of the Eastern Star in Braddock.

I would really like to know more about their lives, for instance the fact that they operated a fish market in Huntingdon, there has to be many stories regarding this, and above all a photo of the family, but  I think this may be too much to expect or hope for.

My thanks to Debbie, without her posts I would never have known where in the U.S.A. my ancestors had settled.

Best Regards

Celtie

About Me

I have been doing my family history for over 40 years.  I have a database of over 40,000 records.

Wookcock Valley is important to me because many of my ancestors were there, or from there. 

I share my records with those who are willing to share with me.  My work is a labor of love and not for money.

My childhood home was Ashtabula County, Ohio.  My Father Carl Showalter, and Grandfather, Frederick N. Showalter were from Rays Cove, Bedford County.  My Great Grandfather, John M. Showalter, and 2nd Great Grandfather, Abraham Showalter were from Penn Twp. Huntingdon Country.  My 3rd Great Grandfather, Abraham Showalter was born in Chester County and died in Cass Twp. Huntingdon County. 

The most important find for me would be to find positive proof of the surname of Abrahams wife, Nancy, who is buried in Valley View (Brumbaugh) Cemetery.  Some say she was a Snare, but no proof has been found.

My records are not limited to Pennsylvania.
