Vintondale born and raised
Letter No. 6 | November 12 1997
I stumbled on your Nanty Glo home page and really enjoyed it. I was born (1947) and raised in Vintondale and graduated from Nanty Glo Vintondale HS in 1965. I remember the Nanty Glo Journal, Thursday's I believe. My grandparents, Clarence and Edith Nipps, lived on Race Street, Nanty Glo. I had an Aunt and Uncle, Elma and Thomas Whinnie, who lived on Vine Street.
I attended Altoona Campus, Penn State, and in 1967 moved to Hagerstown, MD, where I continue to reside. My Mother and Stepfather now live in Johnstown, so I seldom get back to Vintondale or Nanty Glo. I am married (25 years) and have twin sons who just entered college this fall.
Once again I appreciated your page, especially the old Iron Furnace in Vintondale, which I visited often as a kid.
