Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born as a Beitz & then was adopted in 1972 under the name Lightner. The Beitz family originated from McKeesport, Pa & the Lightner family originated from Braddock, Pa.

My oldest sister (Sherry Lynn Prather-Beitz) has been working on our family (The Beitz) tree for well over 30 yrs. I got involved approx 2 yrs ago to give her a hand.

I enjoy the peaceful time in walking thru a cemetery looking at the many different headstones. I got involved with Find a grave because of my Mum & her husband whom are buried in the Riceville Cemetery Riceville (Crawford County) Pa.

Thank you for your efforts to find Anna's grave. I'm curious, you said you couldn't find the headstone. Could she be buried at Riceville but the stone has disappeared with time?
Thanks again,
Robin Truitt

RE: Moses Maine
Thank you very much. I wish I had a doc like the one on the page for his Father Nathan. By the way, Moses was not born in Ohio, but Bradford County, PA. He is seen as the one year old child with Nathan and Rebecca in the 1820 census so we know he was born in 1819
