Nicolette was born on Feb. 5, 1951, the oldest child of Raymond Barr and Ruth Fagan. She grew up in the small town of North Versailles, PA and she attended South Wilmerding elementary school, a 4-room schoolhouse until 6th grade. Then she attended Green Valley for 6th grade, where she met her future husband Bob Byer. Then on to Park Terrace Jr. High, and Westinghouse Memorial High School, where she was in the last graduating class. (East Allegheny School District) in 1969.
After high school she attended Slippery Rock State College and graduated with a degree in elementary education. (1969-1973) Directly following graduation, she and Bob were married on June 23, 1973. They moved to Harrisburg, PA and she got a job teaching in Susquehanna Township School District where she taught 4th grade for 39 years before retiring in 2012.
She and her husband live in Etters, Newberry Township, York County, PA. Now that she is retired from teaching, she loves spending time with her five grandchildren. Other hobbies are gardening, reading, cooking, crafting, visiting thrift and antique stores, and genealogy. In that regard, she is going through her mother's and grandmother's albums and notes and trying to document the information to hand down to her children and grandchildren. She has written a book about her father called The Ancestry of Raymond Dayton Barr. It was published by Shutterfly and copies were given to family members. This past year, she wrote a book about her husband's mother's side of the family. It is called The Painter Family Album  and is a history of this large family and their descendants. An attempt was made to contact all descendants of the 13 children of Andrew Brown Painter. The book was self-published by Book Blurb and copies were purchased by many family members.

I came to invite you to the Weekend Chat but saw on your page that I had posted an invite just last week. I didn't wish to bother you or inundate you with tons of invites to the Chat so I just edited the previous post to include the newest link in case you were inclined to check it out.
Come on over... it goes one more day. Interesting stuff to read and more. Gets better every week.
Hope to see you there :)

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.
If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:FollowingSome categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as for those who bore arms in the Revolution and
for those who contributed patriotic or civil service. Thank you.
