About Me

I've lived in Ohio most of my life.  My branch of the Norris family is dominated by farmers.  We haven't farmed in a generation or so, but there's so much dirt in our bloodline we still bleed brown.  I've restarted our family reunion after a 26-year hiatus and am hoping to develop a family history and lineage to share with the rest of my cousins.

About Me

My dad John F. Rinker, born 1920 grew up in McConnellstown, PA.  His mother was Pearl Rinker and they lived in the house beside the old Methodist Church. My dad is still living.

My maternal grandmother was Genevieve Fisher, and she lived in McConnellstown and attended the new Methodist Church.  My mother was Mary Elizabeth Rinker known by all as Betty.  She was born in 1920, and she went to Huntington High School.  She passed away 26 years ago.

My husband and I visit McConnellstown every year.  We love the area.

I am researching the family of fifth-great-grandfather, Abraham Grubb (Krob/Krupp/Kropf), who moved to Huntingdon County in the late 1700s and died there in 1814, as well as related families.

About Me

I was born and live on the west coast of Scotland, started my family research around 2009 and with a bit of help was very successful.  I discovered via Debbie's hard work with this site that some of my Kiltie ancestors from Scotland had settled in Huntingdon and Margaret Kiltie had married John E Hoover of  McConnelstown.  Margaret B Hoover passed away in 1960 and had been a member of the Order of the Eastern Star in Braddock.

I would really like to know more about their lives, for instance the fact that they operated a fish market in Huntingdon, there has to be many stories regarding this, and above all a photo of the family, but  I think this may be too much to expect or hope for.

My thanks to Debbie, without her posts I would never have known where in the U.S.A. my ancestors had settled.

Best Regards

Celtie

About Me

Researching the Lee family. Robert Lee and wife Elizabeth purchased land in the Woodcock Valley in 1795 and at least some of it was passed down through his son James and his son John.  The property was lost when it had to be sold to pay debts at the death of John Lee in 1875.
