About Me

I am researching the Blatt / Ealy / Cunningham /  Swoope families who lived in the Huntingdon area for generations.  My parents moved out West from Pennsylvania in 1940, consequently I do not know much about my Pennsylvania connections.


I discovered a civil war letter in my mother's effects after she passed away in 2009 and have been on the search to reveal the connection of the author (Cyrus G. Swoope) to my family.  We also have an old land deed, printed on sheepskin, dated 1789 and signed by Benjamin Franklin.  I am trying to find out more about this too. These finds have instilled in me a real desire to find out more about my family's ancestors.  


I am especially interested in finding the identity of the parents of my great, great grandfather, Gustaves Cunningham.  My grandfather,  James Cunningham, was married to Anna Mary Blatt.  They divorced in the 1930s so we have very little knowledge of the Cunningham side of our family.  I have found some info. but wish to know more.  James was also one of about 10-12 children and was a brother of Minnie Mertie Fisher and Harriet Fouse.  I would love to know more about his relatives, esp. sharing of any pictures.  I will be glad to share what I do have.

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.

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
