The Family Plot

Back in October I took a trip to Lebanon to visit the Historical Society. Since Annville is just five minutes away, I decided to see Gerald’s childhood home and visit his and Linda’s graves.

What I found was interesting. There are several generations of Klines buried together in the same plot, including Gerald and Linda. Oddly enough, Theresa Robin doesn’t have her own marker. My dad knows she is buried there, but there is nothing to show for it. Some day I’ll have to fix that.

My name is Courtney. I'm a copywriter in Philadelphia. I've recently started digging into my family history and trying to find out information about my grandparents. They were killed in 1965 by a drunk driver. This blog will chronicle the search to find out who they were, what they were like and what the world is missing out on now that they're gone.

  4. Hi Courtney –

    Welcome to GeneaBloggers! Reading your blog description – I instantly wanted to learn more.

    Who handled their estate? Sometimes, the cemetery will have documents that disclose this. Whoever it was, they probably have a connection to your grandparents and would be worth exploring.

    You are going to have to get creative in order to learn more about them. Did your grandparents attend a church? Did your grandfather work for a large company? A small company? Someone could still be alive that has some memories to share. Do you know what high school they attended – you could look up their yearbook.

    Good luck!
