Samuel Theodore Fetterman was the youngest son and one of four children born to Senora Reitz and Daniel D. Fetterman. He was born and raised in Sunbury, Northumberland County, PA. The census for 1920 showed Samuel as attending school and for 1930 working as a clerk in a silk mill.

Samuel enlisted in the U. S. Army on June 22, 1942. His plaque shows his service as Cpl, Hq. Base SV Sq 448 Air SV, GP.

Helen Viola Ruth Behrent was the daughter of Emma E. Bixler and Julius F. Behrent, a German immigrant. She was the oldest child of four. She was born and raised in Coal Township, Northumberland County, PA. By 1920, her mother was widowed, and Helen was the only child not attending school. One could presume that Helen stayed home to care for her siblings, as her mother worked in the silk mill to support the family. By 1930, she and a brother and sister were all working in the silk mill, and her mother was once again the homemaker.

On December 25, 1945, Samuel and Helen were married in Sunbury, PA, by the Rev. Leo F. Duerr. At the time of their marriage, Samuel worked as a guard at the U. S. National Museum and Helen worked as a checker for the A.T.C. They made their home in Sunbury, and it is unknown if this couple had children of their own.
