Grandmother Anna married Edward Taylor and in their retirement moved to what I was told as a child was Mr. T's family farm at the bottom of Terrace Mountain. Driving the high dirt single lane road to the farm the Juniata was far below on our left as we went from Aitch to the farm.
This house and river are the happiest of childhood memories. It was sold in 1959 (ish) as Mr. T's health failed and they moved to town. I have photos of the house. Terrace mountain was behind it, the barn had burned down and you walked past the old barn foundation on the way to swim to the river. Holiday cottages were on the otherside. The Juniata was so shallow that kids could walk across it to visit vacationers. I expect it is underwater now. Grandmom said it was to be sold to the Boyscouts as a camp since my father had been an Eagle Scout. Would love to knowif it survived or if I should take up diving in my 70s. Karen

I am always trying to find out more about mt GGGGGrandfather, George Reynolds. He died in Huntingdon in 1788 or so. I have history on him but I would like to know where he came from. I think Scotland. He came over with Braddock and fought and was wounded with Braddock. Given land in Woodcock Valley and lived in Huntingdon when he died of a heart attach one morni ng in apparently a neighbors yard. He had three children with first wife and 8 with Margaretta, his second. Anything on him would be so appreciated. Thank you.

I attended Bowers school from 1st grade until it closed in 1950. My teachers were Edythe Grubb and Amelia Hampton. I have class pictures form those years. I now live in Tucson AZ. Several family members are buried in the Old Stone Church Cemetary.

Thank you. Great documentation of old Shultz Cemetery. My husband and I have been there but it was so over run with poison ivy that we did not actually go into it. Just took pictures from a distance. Shultz is in my ancestry through Mary Shultz, d/o Henry. She married David Hoover, s/o Christian. All from Huntingdon Co, PA. David and Mary moved on to Indiana.

Hi my name is Ben Johnson. I'm interested in Woodcock Valley because I recently learned that my mom's side of the family ,surname Lang, was from McConnelstown. Patrick and Washington Lang are the oldest of the relatives but I don't have anyone else before Patrick and would love to learn more about the Lang's of this area.

I have been able to find information about 3 legs of my family... Stapleton, Johnson and Hetrick.

I have a box of photos from the Charles Ulyses Johnson that I was not able to trace to any of my family, my father and grandmother were unable to help. I am curious if there was a forum for me to scan and post to help other area family discover more about their families, in case they are in here. There may be some "White" family photos in there.
