Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Graceton, Pennsylvania 68 yrs ago.
Moved to California when I was 8 and started wanting to know about my family about 35 yrs ago. I have been collecting all sorts of memorabilia and now in the past 3 years have started putting it together. Walking threw cemeteries when I could, talking to family, but now with computers and all the information out there my search is getting easier. I feel that someday my children will want to know where they came from and so I'm on this wonderful journey. I have been married for 48 years, have 2 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandson.

RE: Relative
Good Morning Bessie,
I haven't posted pics of their headstones as of yet.
The day I visited, it decided to rain, and pic taken was lousey. I do however have their death certificates on the website. I believe they are buried in section I, right smack in the middle of the section. Its funny, as an adult, I didn't know whwere they were buried. But after I was at their graves, I remember going there as a young kid, before my mother died. I am so happy that we have the gravesgoing back to our great great grandparents located. Check out Find a Grave. I have tried to link all the relatives together. I did this for our grandchildren and great grandchildren. The work we do will make it easier for future generations. I hope all is well with you and your family. Take care. Your cuzn, Glenn K

RE: Relative
Bessie, I met you at your dad's calling hours. Charlotte Bilby was my mother. She always viewed your dad as her brother, even though they were first cousins. Your dad and my mother were reared by Tom and Minnie. I actually saw Russell Dean in November. My actual grandmother was Florence Wallace, Minnie's sister. Florence died in 1929. Her body rests adjacent to Minnie's grave at the head of Elsie and William Wallace. In November, my wife and I went to our (your's and mine) great great grandparent's graves; Andrew and Rachel Barclay. These were Elsie's parents. They're about 10 miles south of Indiana in Blairsville cemetery. I am so greatful for the work you have done with FindaGrave. I actually used your pic of the Abraham Wallace stone to locate their graves. I also made copies ot Abraham and Elizabeth Wallace from your Find A Grave memorial. There are family resemblances. I try to make it to Indianna a couple times a year. Perhaps, if you make it east again, we could meet up in Indiana, PA. I have located all the graves of the siblings of Florence and Minnie. I have contact with Dorothy Byers. She would be a first cousin to your dad. She lives in Indiana on Maple Street. It is good to hear from you. My address is 10708 Sherman Rd. Chardon, OH 44024. My tele is (440) 285 5690. My direct email is It is always good to hear from cousins! Take care, Glenn W. Kinter PS. I was named after Glenn Bilby, who was Charlotte's brother. Thanks again.

Hi Betsy,
Please feel free to take care of the site. I took the photo and posted it in case someone was looking for family members. I uploaded over 250 tombstones, as a thank you to all those who unknowingly helped me. If I may, all I ask is you pay it forward to help someone else.
