About Me

I have been researching my ancestory for about 50 years.  Have recently learned that my great great grandfather was born in Huntingdon County likely in the area you are writing about.  I belong to ancestry.com and have done a great deal of reserach in the Centre County Pennsylvania Room.  Being a grandma of six grandchildren keeps me busy and I am retired.  Family members are helping and no one has been able to get past this great great grandfather so I am hoping reaching out to you may help me and others.

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 a Fulton/ Brown descendent originating in Broad Top, Pa. I've been struggling to put the pieces together for almost 20 years on that line. That line was a taboo conversation and quite a mystery. Earliest I can trace is about 1850 and most of that is conjecture. Am looking for any help I can get. 3xgf Alexander (Alex) Fulton 1825 Civil War Registration.

I am a historian of sorts. junior historian... I don't know. What I do know is that I have a deep love for discovery and for histoy. especially family history. on my dads side I have one royal governor, Roger Wolcott, one signer of the declaration of independence, oliver Wolcott, and one secretary of the treasury oliver Wolcott jr. not bragging, really. just knowing this has led me to discover more about my own past and my families. to me, knowing where I come from helps me feel connected to who I am.

Love old pictures. I was given a link for the woodcockvalley site that had a picture of the old Weaver homestead, saying that it had belonged to Henry and Rachel (Bryan) Weaver. One of Henry's brothers, Christian was my great, great, great grandfather. Hoping to someday find more info on their parents Jacob and Susan. Also on my great great grandparents John A. and Hannah Weaver.

One day I came across your posting of the Johnston family album.  I couldn't believe my luck.  I am not a Johnston but I was trying to find photos of my Shollar line and there were no shortage of them there.  There were several wonderful pictures of my three greats Uncle Fred Shollar and his wife Lydia (Johnston) as well as their children Marjorie and Gerald.  Also the photo of Fred's mother, Isabel Cooper Shollar who lived in Williamsburg, Pa and was the wife of Capt James Stewart Shollar who served in the civil war. Another bit of luck is that I had been in touch with Marjorie Shollar's granddaughter and was able to tell her of all the wonderful Shollar and Johnston photos at the Histrory of Woodcock Valley.
