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 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.

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 day was six foot five inches tall. Thanks to Deb Fisher Riley for pointing out this web site.

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.
