Dead Fred's Genealogy Photo Archive, a free, fun photo genealogy research web site devoted to helping you visualize your heritage!

Dear readers,

Please help us keep DeadFred alive. 90% of our expenses are supported by donations averaging $5. Not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, our fundraiser would be done by the time you finish reading this. That's right, the price of a large can of soda would do it.

If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: Samuel Krise (Nee: ) | Centre Hall PA United States | | Comments: Samuel Krise was born 11 Sept 1804 in Lebanon, Pa, son of Philip Kreis and Anna Catherine Bruch. He moved with his parents to Centre County, Pa, near Aaronsburg, then to Buffalo Run near Bellefonte, PA, and then to a farm 2 1/2 miles north of Pleasant Gap. He was a school teacher by occupation. He married Dorothy Padget/Paget on 22 Jan 1835. Dorothy was born in Potter Township, Center Hall. They had one child, a son, William Andrews Krise, a teacher and later Superintendent of Public Schools in Centre Hall, PA. This picture is particularly interesting because, according to legend, when Samuel Krise died, the family realized that they had no picture of him. After his death on 20 Mar 1877, the family propped up his corpse, added a top hat, and took his picture. Samuel Krise is buried with the Padgets in the Center Hill Cemetery, Center Hall, Pa.
