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

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.
