Bio and Links
I have been fascinated with cemeteries and family history ever since I was a small child. I can remember as a child going to the cemetery with my grand dad and asking all kinds of questions. However, it wasn't until several years ago that I actually started my genealogy search, and I must say it has been a totally awesome experience.
There is so much information out there just waiting to be found. The expression "everyone has skeletons in their closets" is so true. You just never know how many, until you start searching for them.

I have met so many wonderful,loving people,that have helped me along the way. What I find most rewarding is finding family members you never knew existed, and bonding with them like you have known one another forever. That expression "blood is thicker than water" certainly does hold true. It is a wonderful feeling!

I have a variety of interests , but genealogy is my true passion.

I love this site! It is so nice to have a site where you can memorialize and pay tribute to friends and family members that are no longer with us. Thank you Find a Grave!

I failed to list the Find A Grave memorials for Samuels parents:
Dad: George Kightlinger, 16758859.

Please add this to family data on his memorial..

Thank you,

Ken Herman
Samuel Kightlinger (Kitelinger)
I am Ken Herman, Find A Grave No. 47257516
Lested below is data that could be added to Samuels Memorial

He was a son of George and Rebecca Jane Reynolds Kightlinger. He was born in Venango County, Pennsylvania 31 Aug 1853 and died at Hunters Station, Tionesta Township, Forest County, Pennaylvania.

Sam was born 31 Aug 1853, Venengo County, Pennsylvania and died 23 Dec 1904 at/near Hunters Station, Pennsylvania. He is included in the 1870 census with his parents and siblings where it is noted that he was deaf and dumb. According to other genealogy data his death was caused while walking on railroad tracks and was not able to hear the approaching train.

Samuel's death record indicates he died at/near Hunter Station, Tionesta Township, Forest County, Pennsylvania. I am unable to tell much about Hunter Station, however, there is a Hunter Station Bridge that carries U.S. Route 62 across the Allegheny River in rural Tionesta Township in Forest County, Pennsylvania. The structure was named for a railroad stop on the long defunct Ridgway & Oil City Railroad.
