About Me

I  retired from Hillsborough Co., Tampa, Fl Schools as an Assistant Kindergarten Teacher in 2009.   After 24 years with little 5 and 6 year olds,  it's time to move on!   

I am married to John Corio  (47 yrs) ,  with two grown children - Angela 41 yrs old and Vincent 33 years old.  We have one grandaughter and another one due in August 2013 and   two step grandchildren.  They keep us very busy!

My hobbies are Genealogy and Jewelry making  -  Wire Art Sculpturing, . I have done several craft shows in the Tampa area at local church Boutiques. 

 I've also completed many binder books of family info and placed at Genealogical Society in Blair County, Pa.

 John and  I also do a lot of walking and traveling  since we are both retired. 

My "brickwall"  is Henry HUGHS/HUGHES b. c. 1800 in Ireland who married Martha Jane (unknown).  Henry could be a middle name that he went by - possible first name - James or John!    Martha may have a maiden name of "Davis" - my GGGrandfather was John Davis Hughs/Hughes b. 1825 in Centre Co., Pa.  He also lived in Huntingdon, Pa before finally settling in Altoona. 

My Huntingdon Co. names:  Hughes,  Hicks, Jackson, Westbrook, Simpson, Dougherty

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.

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
