Bio and Links
To whom it may concern, my bio is my bio, I have been a findagrave member for quite a few years. I am not a name collector like others, but I am territorial and would like to be able to place memorials up for people in my area (Ashland, Fountain Springs, Gordon, Girardville, Lavelle, Locustdale)that are in the local newspapers and funeral home websites, but alas I can't, someone from far away keeps putting them up.

If you are going to put memorials up and if the info is provided in the obit (aka-bio), please enter it. Don't just leave the places born & died blank because it is quicker for you to enter them and grab them before someone else does.
Do it correctly or don't do it at all.

I know my area (North of the mountain) of Schuylkill county very well and what I don't know I make sure to find out.

And UPDATE, UPDATE, I am slowly but surely adding cemmie records for a certain cemetery in my area, I have the letters A, B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J, & L done so far.
I have also transcribed the St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Middleport, Pennsylvania
Helped with Odd Fellows in Girardville; St Joseph's (Old & New), Ashland; and St Mauritius (Old & New), also Ashland. Sts Peter & Paul, Port Carbon. With more to come as time & weather permits. Upcoming Citizens Cemetery, Lavelle.
Big Thanks to fellow deceased Findagraver- Keith McKain, for entering all the pictures and memorials that you did for me.
If it were not for you entering them for me, those 2700 plus memorials in Schuylkill co area wouldn't be up there now and Big Thanks to FAG, for turning them over to me to maintain.
Hugs & Thanks to Peggy Scully who is up there in Heaven now, I'll take care of your memorials.
And also hats off to Tim Gruber & Robert Miller whose numerous memorials I also manage.

Kulczycki Memorials
Joanne, Thank you so much for transferring the Kulczycki Memorial to me I have added quite a bit of info to Peter John Kulczycki memorial and have rounded up and asked to link all of his and Katherine's children. A question on the photo of the big headstone done by Robert David Miller. How is he doing anyway ? Can I take that same picture of his and use it for Peter's wife Katherine and their son John's grave photo with Roberts credits for the picture. Carrie

RE: Ellen Hummel Nace
I was hoping that someone knew who the Carrie Campbell was mentioned in the biography. Thanks!

Ellen Hummel Nace
I was hoping that you are a direct relative of Ellen Hummel Nace or know something about her family. I am currently working on a genealogy for the Russell/Russel family of Dauphin/Perry/Schuylkill/Lebanon counties. I know for certain the following:
William Young (born Fuhrman) 1898-1961 married Clara A. Russell 1904-1959. Clara's parents were Harry Charles Russell and Sarah Alice Zimmerman 1882-19363. Harry's parents are a mystery. When he is just 2 or 3 years old he appears in the 1880 Census living with his grandparents, Josiah Witmer and Maria Tompkins (various spellings of Tompkins). I have no evidence of either of his parents other than his mother must be a Witmer born before 1868 so she would be at least 10 years old when he was born (that is very much underestimating). Anything you could provide to help would be so greatly appreciated!

RE: Recheck
Hi. I checked those names against the dates on the death certificates. It's definitely Persings and not McWilliams. I think the reason it was initially listed as McWilliams and not Persing is because the tombstones were just general "father" and "mother" with the dates. They are located next to their daughter, Olive McWilliams. That's probably why Mr. Miller assumed the surnames should be McWilliams.
