It would help if you put in any dates/approximate dates of b, m, d that  you might know.

Depending on how old YOU are! ie. 18 or 82

your g-ma may have been born sometime between in 1870 of 1970!
Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for your question and for your interest in WikiTree and G2G.

So far this is what I've found for your grandmother:

"United States Social Security Death Index," index, FamilySearch ( : accessed 05 Dec 2013), Virginia Bietsch, 14 August 1996; citing U.S. Social Security Administration, Death Master File, database (Alexandria, Virginia: National Technical Information Service, ongoing).

For Merle Kenneth Biestch and family:

"United States Census, 1940," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 05 Dec 2013), Merle K Bietsch in household of Merle K Bietoch, Ward 3, Chambersburg, Chambersburg Borough, Franklin, Pennsylvania, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 28-9, sheet 2A, family 20, NARA digital publication of T627, roll 3509.

"United States Census, 1930," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 05 Dec 2013), Merle K Bietsch in household of William H Bietsch, Chambersburg, Franklin, Pennsylvania, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 0006, sheet , family 333, NARA microfilm publication .

I hope this helps in some way,
