About Me

I am the creator of Genealogy of the Woodcock Valley.  My goal is to share all of the information I have collected over the years and will continue to collect.  My collecting has slowed down tremendously, since I now have a son, who keeps me quite busy.  I am also a full time first grade teacher.  My main lines of research include:  Riley, Garner, Isett, Norris, Fisher, Anderson, Kinch, Creighton, and Watson.  However, I am game for almost any name from Huntingdon County!

About Me

I have spent the last ten years researching my ancestor John David Fisher. He married Margaret Weaver and moved from Huntindon, Pa in 1854 to Illinois. He purchased 40 acres of land in 1850 for $1.25 an acre. The land grant is signed by Willard Fillmore President of the United States. My quest to prove whom where his parents. There are so mamy Henry Fishers and  just need to sort out the correct one.

I carry on the Fisher trait of height, being the shortest of four brothers at six foot three inches. My dad was six foot five inches tall. Thanks to Deb Fisher Riley for pointing out this web site.

Update: I spent part of a day at the Land Office in Dixon, Illinois. I was able to get a copy of the Land Grant of Henry Fisher and his wife. i later went to the land he had bought and talked with the present owner. He thought his family were somehow related. But he never checked into to history. He said his family were from the same area in PA. That his family had bought Land Grant Land in 1841. Another trip back to the Land Office proved to be correct. William Fisher bought Land Grant in China Township now known as Franklin Grove. I was able to get a copy of this Deed.

This now has open up a whole lot of more questions! Somehow My Henry Fisher and William Fisher are related. Maybe someone in Huntingdon PA kowns this William Fisher.

I am planning another trip to Dixon, Il  Courthouse for more records on this Fisher side.

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.

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.
