I have been doing my family history for over 40 years. I have a database of over 40,000 records.
Wookcock Valley is important to me because many of my ancestors were there, or from there.
I share my records with those who are willing to share with me. My work is a labor of love and not for money.
My childhood home was Ashtabula County, Ohio. My Father Carl Showalter, and Grandfather, Frederick N. Showalter were from Rays Cove, Bedford County. My Great Grandfather, John M. Showalter, and 2nd Great Grandfather, Abraham Showalter were from Penn Twp. Huntingdon Country. My 3rd Great Grandfather, Abraham Showalter was born in Chester County and died in Cass Twp. Huntingdon County.
The most important find for me would be to find positive proof of the surname of Abrahams wife, Nancy, who is buried in Valley View (Brumbaugh) Cemetery. Some say she was a Snare, but no proof has been found.
My records are not limited to Pennsylvania.
