1907-1965: Limestone Township, Pennsylvania House
When Anna Frances Britt, 1885-1965 was born on February 17, 1885, in Corsica, Pennsylvania, her father, Franklin, was 31, and her mother, Jeanette (1852-1930), was 32. She had three brothers and one sister. She died in 1965 in Limestone, Pennsylvania, at the age of 80. Her brother Robert Ralston Britt was born when she was two, in 1887.
The family lived at 11484 E Reidsburg Rd, Clarion, PA, near the unincorporated town of Limestone (see photos section below) after the premature 1907 death of their husband and father Franklin Pierce Britt (1853-1907). Surviving rev. Britt were Anna, her mother Jeanette, and brothers Robert Ralston, who married in 1912, and Jean McBride Britt, who served in the Army in Europe in World War 1, probably about 1917.

After her father's death, Anna and her mother often visited Anna's great aunt on her mother's side, Anna Byers Yates Gilmor (1831-?) and Anna Gilmore's husband, reverend John (J.S.) Gilmore (1831-1903). (The spelling of the name sometimes includes a final "e", sometimes not.) The Gilmores lived in a fine house in Stony Point, New York, near Haverstraw, New York in Rockland county on the Hudson River north of New York City.
From the Gilmor Sloan House website: "In 1885, the property was owned by the family of a Presbyterian Pastor – Rev. John Gilmor. His daughters lived in the house their entire lives. In 1949, they willed the property to the National Mission Agency of the Presbyterian Church." The Gilmor Sloane House: History"
