I just added to the bio. I did the same thing on my great-grandfather's page. Now they both appear on Categorizing people by trades could be a great tool for making connections.

Hi David! My name is Crystal - a Supervisor here on the site. I just created, which links to this profile. An important aspect of the WikiTree project (but so far underutilized) is the potential for adding historical context to family history and the unusual collaboration this can spark. By creating general pages with links to individual ancestors we're giving Google something to index. This way, down the road if someone out there searches for "Pennsylvania Railroad" or "Pennsy employees", they have a good chance of ending up here and hopefully participating - and connecting.
