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.

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'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've been fascinated with everything historical all my life. Archaelogy, genealogy...you name it, I'm interested! I began my genealogy work about 12 years ago, and have been able to devote more time to it now that I've retired (well, kind of retired)! I came upon this website when researching my dad's side of the family, and found it wonderful. My dad was born and raised in Marklesburg, which my family visited every summer when I was a child. I even have distant memories of visiting Aitch before the creation of Raystown Lake. I look forward to learning more about the Woodcock Valley part of our state through this website!
