About Me

I'm older than dirt. Was born in Tyrone, Blair Co., PA. My family, for many generations, came from Central PA. We moved to Meadville, Crawford Co., PA, when I was a baby as the Viscose had opened a plant here, and it was depression days. I have 4 grown daughters, 6 grown grandchildren, and I'm deeply into genealogy.

Surnames I have from Woodcock Valley are Barrick, Boyer,Clapper, Grove, Hahn, many in other parts of Huntingdon, Blair, Clearfield counties.

About Me

I have been passonate about American history since a young age. When my daughter finished high school, I went back and received my BA in History/Physical Antropology, specializing in history of the American West. While in college I did many house histories for extra income and realized that I loved geneaology too.

My husband knew nothing about his family on his mother's side. When I started to search back in his family, I found an ancestor connected to the Fisher's in Pennsylvnia. I am glad I have found this site and hope to add to the history Debbie has done here. I am also willing to help anyone who have had family move to the Rocky Mountian region as well.

About Me

My local ancestry is Swope, White, Edwards, Cook, Brown Carothers, Gordon.  Many resided in Woodcock Valley. My stepfather owned a large farm in Woodcock Valley near Shy Beaver and I spent many happy times on the farm until they sold it in the 1980's. I am particularly interested in the John Gordon family that lived in McConnellstown. I retired from a very long accounting career and now do genealogical research full time, at a professional level.

About Me

Hello.  I am a descendant by way of the marriage of Sarah Hallman (Heilman) and David Ashenfelter (Ashalter).  Sarah's Father was Isaac Hallman and Mother was Rebecca Isett.  

I have been researching my family since I retired about 7 years ago.  I've joined several lineal groups and hope to prove my ancestry for posterity.  Thank you for the opportunity to join this family group. I hope to learn more about my  Isett family.
