Love old pictures. I was given a link for the woodcockvalley site that had a picture of the old Weaver homestead, saying that it had belonged to Henry and Rachel (Bryan) Weaver. One of Henry's brothers, Christian was my great, great, great grandfather. Hoping to someday find more info on their parents Jacob and Susan. Also on my great great grandparents John A. and Hannah Weaver.

One day I came across your posting of the Johnston family album.  I couldn't believe my luck.  I am not a Johnston but I was trying to find photos of my Shollar line and there were no shortage of them there.  There were several wonderful pictures of my three greats Uncle Fred Shollar and his wife Lydia (Johnston) as well as their children Marjorie and Gerald.  Also the photo of Fred's mother, Isabel Cooper Shollar who lived in Williamsburg, Pa and was the wife of Capt James Stewart Shollar who served in the civil war. Another bit of luck is that I had been in touch with Marjorie Shollar's granddaughter and was able to tell her of all the wonderful Shollar and Johnston photos at the Histrory of Woodcock Valley.

A family member sent me the link to your site. My husband's family goes back to the mid 1700s in Pennsylvania. Many of them lived in the Woodcock Valley area. I am interested in finding any old photos, obituaries, etc. that would help give more detail to their lives.

About Me

   I am passionate about genealogy and love researching my various family lines. Many of my lines intersect in Pennsylvania so much of my interest is focused there. I live in California and am very grateful for all the help I have received from my online friends.

  My main area of research is my Isett line, but I am also especially interested in Oliver, Rodgers, Eby, and Grubbe.

    Frances Rodgers(b. 1778) married Henry Isett, and Nancy Nelson Oliver (b.1816) married Edward Bell Isett. Although I think that Frances Rodgers' parents were Samuel Rodgers and Jane, and I think that Nancy Nelson Oliver's parents were Joseph Oliver and Mary, I have been unable to find documentation. I would love to hear from anyone who has knowledge or interest in those families.
