Mr. Getty -

My great grandfather's name was Robert Long Getty. His parents were a May Yupa and a Samuel M. Getty ( who was from PA). Robert was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1886. The family story is that May and Samuel were never married but I have no proof either way. Samuel M. Getty is listed on Robert's birth certificate. The only Samuel M. Getty born in PA that I have found is Samuel Miller Getty born in Robinson Twp. PA in 1854. He died in July 1910. I was sending for that record this week. But again - I have no proof that he IS indeed my great grandfather's father.
Does any of this seem familiar to you? Maybe an old family tale you have heard?

This has been a very elusive family line and I would really like to find more information - especially for my grandmother.

I hope you may be able to help.

Thank you ---- sincerely....

Paula Parker
