Gary Wagner
Query: Hello. I apologise in advance for this question, which is not a geneological one but I am unsure where I can obtain the answer to this question. For years, My friends and I have canoed the West Branch and stayed at a campsite at the confluence of Moshannon creek and the West Branch of the Susquehanna. At this campsite, there is a large structure that resembles a canal "lock" there are two walls about 25 feet high and therre appears to be a channel leading "upstream" to the Moshannon. Where the channel would meet the Moshannon, there appear to be several large submerged timbers in the creek. My friends an I have speculated that this might be some sort of splash dam that was used when the area was logged however we have also heard that thre might have been a sawmill on this location at one time. I would appreciate any help you could provide to clear up our mystery. Thank-you, Gary Wagner

Query: HARPSTER, MEEK in CENTRE CO., PA I need to locate the farm of Samuel H. HARPSTER (1788-1875) in Ferguson twsp., Centre co. According to J.O. HARPSTER's genealogy (The Harpsters and their Habitat), it was lodated "on the White-Hall road near Meeks Church [which was] now (1956) owned by Ronald Gillegan. Samuel evidently did not own this land. Elsewhere in the book, J.O. HARPSTER mentions the Ardrey Chapel - The Martha Methodist Church, which he describes as being on land owned by John B. MEEK, who became the local preacher. By this, I assume J.O. ment a church in Martha Furnace. I would appreciate any assistance, suggestions in this matter.
