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.
