Doris Dibert and Kathy Williams of Everett recently presented the Bedford County Historical Society with a copy of their newly published book, “Descendants of John (Stair) Stayer (1761-1825) and Margaret (1761-1858) of Snake Spring Valley, Bedford Co., PA.” The book was printed in collaboration with Robert A. Longbottom of Mogadore, OH, who provided the information on the nine generations, naming over 5,600 descendants.
