Hi, Michelle. I can help you if you like. Like you, my first ancestor here was Hans Detwiler. Our trees diverge from there, but I have found information on the last link you've mentioned.

Norris and Sarah had four children: Elizabeth B. (married Andrew Kime); Neil B., (deceased at age 1); Ruth Mae B (married twice, to Henry Yost and N.C. DeWalt); and, Harold (married Dorothy Espenship). I assume it is Elizabeth you are following?

I am using "The Genealogy of the Deteiler,Detwiler Family" book. Unfortunately, there is apparently an error (that you may already be aware of) in the book. After the listing for Elizabeth and Andrew, additional information is supposed to be listed in Section 38-2670. But that particular number is for some reason skipped in the book, making it impossible to continue the tree. If you know some other name, that might help.

When I went to, I was able to find your grandmother's grave listing, and information on the Kime Family Archive and Genealogical Project. Perhaps you know of all of this already.

Good luck in your search! Kind regards and God Bless.
